Kofi Kingston def. Damien Sandow
Neither of these guys mean anything at the moment, but disregarding that, they are still very capable of having good matches together. The Green Bay live crowd was seemingly split between Kingston and Sandow with chants for both Superstars, which was interesting. The fact this match lasted only a few minutes was rather disappointing, especially considering this is an hour-long show that mostly consists of Raw recaps. Kingston's post-match interview with Jerry Lawler was odd, as you don't normally see that type of thing on WWE Superstars, but I guess it was a nice change of pace. I heard from a few people saying that they showed parts of this match (and potentially spoiled the finish) during the pre-show before Raw this week, which is strange (I didn't tune in so I wouldn't know). Hopefully they don't do that every week going forward.
Cody Rhodes, Goldust and Los Matadores def. Curtis Axel, Ryback and 3MB
This was essentially the same exact match we saw on WWE Main Event this week, the only difference is that El Torito and Heath Slater weren't involved here. That being said, I actually found this match more enjoyable that the one from Main Event, but that might have been due to the hot crowd. The Rhodes brothers were the sole highlight in my opinion, but everyone else also played their role well. I will never get tired of seeing Cody execute his Cross Rhodes finisher, as it is so cool looking and effective at the same time. Wait, why are they wrestling on WWE Superstars again?
After WWE Superstars was taken off television in April 2011 and then off WWE.com in late 2012, I stopped watching on a regular basis. However, I started watching it again in the summer of 2013 after hearing Alex Riley was filling in for Matt Striker on commentary and I have been watching weekly ever since then. Granted, Riley no longer does commentary (I'm looking at you, Byron Saxton), but I still like to get my fix of wrestling for the hell of it. Every episode of Superstars now consists of Raw recaps, so I wouldn't suggest tuning in if you absolutely despise recap videos, but I figured I'd start writing a review for the two matches on the show now that it has a certified time slot on the WWE Network. As far as this edition goes, Sandow vs. Kingston was a bit of a letdown, but the eight-man tag team match was fun for what it was.
