Mark Henry and Jack Swagger def. The Ascension
I guess it's safe to assume Henry and Swagger are a full-fledged tandem at this point seeing as how they have partnered up quite a few times in the last month. They don't have any obvious chemistry on paper, but they do have the all-American shtick going for them. We have seen them battle with The Ascension on a number of occasions in the past, so while this match was nothing new, it was fine while it lasted. Personally, I would like to see Henry featured more prominently on WWE TV as his rumored retirement at WrestleMania 32 draws closer.
Stardust def. Zack Ryder
This was another match that has been done to death before, but I can't complain about an enjoyable outing involving Stardust and Ryder. They usually work well together and this was another case of them having a pretty solid matchup. I was pleasantly surprised by the ample amount of time they were given compared to the opener, so even though the crowd wasn't super invested in it, they put forth a commendable effort.
Although both bouts were well-wrestled, they aren't worth going out of way to check out by any means. They'll probably be featured on a future edition of Superstars since this was far from the first time they have been done, so you can catch them then if you want. The Raw recaps weren't too stellar, either, so you're better off skipping out on this episode.
