Fandango def. Jack Swagger
You knew that this rowdy post-WrestleMania crowd (taped before Raw on Monday night) would have gone nuts for Fandango if he had his old entrance theme. Swagger was relatively over and the crowd was behind him throughout, but the match wasn't anything of note. You could have heard a pin drop when Fandango picked up the victory. Are they still trying to pushed the "new-and-improved" Fandango? At the very least, he didn't face Adam Rose, so that's a plus.
R-Truth def. Luke Harper
Would it be fair to say that the power outage early on in the match was the best part about it? I know I'm always harsh on Truth, but I'm sorry, he just doesn't peak my interest in 2015. While the "Let's go Harper" chants were amusing, the match itself was decent at best. Harper never ceases to amaze me with his sheer athleticism, and Truth isn't a bad worker in his own right, but they weren't given enough time to have a memorable match. As if that wasn't bad enough, Harper lost. You know, the same person who are supposed to take seriously after attacking Dean Ambrose on SmackDown. I realize this was taped before SmackDown, but why would you have Harper lose to Truth in the first place?
The hot post-WrestleMania crowd made this a more interesting episode than usual, but it's a shame both bouts were duds. They were well wrestled, but the wrong people went over and it killed the crowd. If nothing else, it was glorious watching the Raw recaps back, specifically Brock Lesnar's unforgettable attack on the announcers, so this edition of Superstars is worth watching for that alone.
