The Ascension def. Jack Swagger and Fandango
Finally! Something new! I know that's really setting the bar, but by Superstars standards, seeing a new team form is a refreshing change of pace. I'm not even sure if Swagger and Fandango will be a permanent pairing or if it will be a one-off, and I can't say they have that much chemistry together, but at least it gives both guys something to do. Meanwhile, The Ascension is still The Ascension, meaning they're still cold as ice. The match was decent which wasn't a surprise given all four guys are great athletes, but it's a shame they're saddled with stupid gimmicks. The Ascension winning was the right move since they're the established tandem.
Bo Dallas def. R-Truth
Well, at least one of the two matches was a breath of fresh air. We see the same tired trash from these two every single week. And by "trash," I'm not saying they have bad matches, but rather we've seen it so many times that I've simply grown numb to it. Worse yet, you know neither of them are going to benefit from beating the other, so what purpose does it really serve? If nothing else, this was probably the best bout they've contested to date, though obviously that's not saying much.
I guess Swagger and Fandango joining forces was somewhat notable, but we'll see if they start teaming regularly going forward. I personally don't care for the duo, but anything is better what either of them are doing right now... which is nothing. As for Dallas vs. Truth, it was well-wrestled and that's all I can really say for it. On the whole, it was a passable show and at least slightly better than I thought it was going to be going in after seeing what was on tap beforehand.
