The Shining Stars def. The Golden Truth
I couldn't care less about either one of these teams, so you could probably tell how I felt about this match. The live crowd wasn't completely dead for it, so at least a portion of fans seemed to enjoy it more than I did it. There wasn't anything technically wrong with it, but it virtually didn't matter who won. I assumed The Golden Truth would avenge their loss to them from a few weeks back, so if nothing else, I was pleasantly surprised when they didn't.
United States Champion Rusev def. Jack Swagger (Non-title)
Rusev and Swagger have had no less than a million matches against each other over the past two years, yet somehow, they always produce solid matchups. This wasn't the best bout they've ever had, but it was serviceable while it lasted and I liked how Rusev continued to sell his rib injuries from SummerSlam. He was sporting a shiner here, so I'm not sure where that came from and if it had anything to do with the decision to leave him off Raw this week.
Unless you're a fan of either team, Shining Stars vs. Golden Truth was largely a waste of time and not worth checking out, but you can count on Rusev and Swagger to deliver and have a solid match. It isn't exactly must-see, but it isn't a chore to sit through before re-watching the excellent Fatal 4-Way WWE Universal Championship match from Raw, as featured on this edition of Superstars.
