Adam Rose def. Curtis Axel
It's always bothersome when WWE tapes the same matches for Superstars as they do for Main Event in the same week. It's repetitive and annoying for those who tune in to both shows (and I know there aren't many of us out there). That said, this was probably a better bout than the one Axel and Rose had on Tuesday night. The crowd was a bit livelier, but I attribute that to this match kicking off the tapings on Monday as opposed to following another match like it did on Main Event. Even still, it wasn't anything special and the ending outcome was no different. Tag team or no tag team, Axel is still brutally boring.
Fandango def. R-Truth
Speaking of boring, are there two Superstars in WWE right now that are more stale than Fandango and Truth? Pairing them together was a disaster from the start. Nothing they did intrigued me and therefore I couldn't get invested in the action. Renee Young on commentary tried to tell the story of how these two are former friends, but it didn't ring true because they have no prior history together. Fandango winning was a slight surprise, but at the end of the day, it hardly means anything. If nothing else, at least Layla and Summer Rae didn't show up at ringside to cost Fandango the match again.
This was a completely skippable show featuring two matches that didn't excite me whatsoever. Rose, Axel, Fandango and Truth are all staler than month-old bread, so both of the matches fell flat. Thus, I strongly suggest not checking out this week's edition of Superstars, especially since the highlights from Raw that were shown were horrendous.
