Bo Dallas def. Zack Ryder
It was nice to see Ryder back on Superstars after his win over Heath Slater on last week's show. This wasn't nearly as fun as that match, but it was still halfway decent. The predictability of the finish was what kind of killed it for me, though. Despite his recent string of victories over Mark Henry, Dallas still feels like a cold character without any real momentum. It's a shame considering how well he was doing when was embarking on that undefeated streak a few months back.
Cesaro def. Kofi Kingston
Cesaro and Kingston have had some classic matches over the years and I expected them to have another barn burner of a bout here. That said, they definitely delivered. There was a lot of entertaining action and close near-falls down the stretch even though it was obvious Cesaro was going over. They just work so well together that it's simply impossible for them to have a bad match. The finish that saw Cesaro hit the uppercut out of nowhere on Kingston was a sweet visual and ended the match on a high note... literally!
By Superstars standards, this was a pretty good show. It was made noteworthy by Cesaro's presence as well as this marking Dallas' official debut on the program. The first match was solid and the second was stellar, so definitely check out Cesaro vs. Kingston when you some free time. The Raw Rebounds weren't terrible to sit through since Raw this week wasn't half-bad, but if you're like me and you skip that kind of stuff anyway, then this is an episode you should watch.
