Emma def. Summer Rae
As they did with Paige and Emma last week, it was nice to hear the commentators acknowledge the longtime history between Emma and Summer. Their antics were entertaining and all, but the match was most enjoyable when it came down to the in-ring action. They aren't allowed to showcase their talent on the main roster more often than not, but they're both great wrestlers and it was refreshing to see them work a match that reflected that. Emma doesn't score many wins these days, so her picking up the victory was a treat.
Tyson Kidd and Cesaro def. Los Matadores
There aren't many Los Matadores matches that I actually enjoy because I find the act so stupid, but this was a rare exception. Except for one spot that involved El Torito early on, this match was all about the wrestling. The styles of both tandems meshed perfectly and it made for an incredibly entertaining matchup. The final few minutes were fun and the finish was fantastic. Even the live crowd was getting into it, which you don't normally see for Superstars matches (for obvious reasons).
This very well might my favorite episode ever of Superstars. I know that isn't saying much, but this was one hell of an effort from the competitors on this show. The women's match was entertaining and the tag team match was absolutely awesome and well worth going out of your way to see. As always, skip the Raw recaps, but I give this show two thumbs up for the wrestling portion alone. Check both bouts out when you get a chance.
