Goldust def. Adam Rose
It's gotten to a point where Rose isn't even allowed to cut promos while making his entrance anymore. Now, all he does is come out to his old babyface music. What will they take away from this guy next? Anyway, it was nice to see Goldust in action, and apparently, he'll be involved in a feud with Tyler Breeze going forward according to SmackDown. While I'm glad they're finally giving Goldust something to do, it feels like a step down for Breeze if it won't be anything more than a filler comedy program.
Fandango def. Heath Slater
Both Fandnago and Slater are underrated athletes, but man, this match did not at all need to go as long as it did. It was extremely unnecessary as there wasn't anything about it that was remotely exciting. They put forth a decent effort, but it fell flat with this viewer. It might be because the crowd had zero incentive to care about either of them whereas at least the previous match had Goldust in it.
This might be the one week where I'd suggest watching Superstars solely for the Raw replays. The flagship show was fantastic this week and the parts that were shown on this show were great. The two featured matches, not so much. Goldust's return to Superstars was an unexpected treat, but his match with Rose was forgettable and Fandango vs. Slater was more of the same from those two.
