Jack Swagger def. Curtis Axel
I don't believe these two have ever gone one-on-one before this bout, so it definitely felt fresh. That said, I was disappointed by how short it ended up being. Both guys are very good workers and they easily could have gone longer. Heck, take time out of the second match in order to give this one more time! It was predictable Swagger would go over, especially if he's in line for a United States Championship rivalry with Rusev, but the match itself was fairly underwhelming.
The Usos def. Slater Gator
As big of a fan as I am of The Usos, not even their involvement in this match could make me care about it. I'm sorry, but I despise Slater Gator with a passion. I don't mind Heath Slater and Titus O'Neil on their own, but as a team, they don't have any chemistry. The match itself was actually half-decent and there were some fun points, but it was otherwise nothing out of the ordinary.
This was without a doubt one of the most throwaway episodes of Superstars in some time. I know that isn't saying much since Superstars is a throwaway show itself, but unlike usual, neither of the matches were all that good or worth going out of your way to check out. Not to mention Raw was hardly anything great on Monday night, so sitting through the Raw recaps is wasteful for those that do.
