El Torito and Hornswoggle def. Slater Gator
I understand why WWE would want to turn Hornswoggle face with his new movie coming out soon, but to completely forget about their history together is asinine. Yes, the commentators referenced their rivalry, but to throw that out the window to have them team up makes zero sense. Plus, Slater is (or was?) on a winning streak, so the decision to have him lose here, much less have him be the one to take the pinfall loss for his team, was mind-boggling. Basically, he went from defeating Seth Rollins on Raw to getting pinned by Hornswoggle. Hardly anyone watches Superstars so the loss will go unnoticed, but it still stupid booking that didn't need to happen.
Emma def. Alicia Fox
As noted last week, these two work very well together and I was happy to see a rematch between them take place. Although it wasn't as good as their initial encounter, they once again got a sufficient amount of time and had an enjoyable bout. It was nice to see Emma score the victory, but Fox's post-match crazy antics have grown tiresome and lost their luster a long time ago.
Emma and Fox had another good match, but if anything, I would recommend checking out their clash from last week's show since it was better. The tag match, as expected, was throwaway and the sole reason why you should not watch this episode. If nothing else, the new Superstars opening is quite cool and goes along with the recent cosmetic changes WWE has made to many of their programs.
