Intercontinental Champion Big E def. Titus O'Neil (Non-title)
I was worried this match won't be that good considering both guys tend to have better matches when working with opponents that can carry them, but it was a pleasantly surprising bout. That's not to say they're bad in the ring, but they're still works in progress. Their two similar styles meshed nicely and made for a decent outing. To my memory, this is Big E's first singles non-title victory in a while, thought it doesn't matter much considering it happened on Superstars. I've said it before and I'll say it again: What was the point in breaking O'Neil away from Darren Young (who's now injured anyway) if they weren't going to do anything substantial with either guy?
Los Matadores def. 3MB
Everyone involved in the match is a good worker and are capable of having decent matches, and while this match was fine for what it was, we've seen it so many times before that it's just annoying at this point. The ending result is never any different, so why should anyone care? The only thing worth noting about this match was that Heath Slater was in 3MB's corner, yet he was replaced by Hornswoggle on WWE Main Event this week. I'm not sure what the reasoning behind that was, nor can I say I really care.
I found it funny that on the week Superstars celebrated its five year anniversary, it was bumped until airing on Saturday morning. I'm glad it was, however, because the Ultimate Warrior documentary that aired in its place was phenomenal and obviously much more worth it than this show. The Big E vs. O'Neil match was decent, but not necessary to go out of your way to see. Actually, any episode of Superstars featuring Los Matadores vs. 3MB is one you don't need to see.
