The Dudley Boyz def. The Ascension
They may not be winning many matches these days, but you can always count on The Dudley Boyz for an entertaining outing. It's a good thing they're as established and as over as they are, otherwise I don't know if the audience would be as engaged in their matches. The match quality really wasn't anything special and it was mostly formulaic, but seeing the former multi-time WWE Tag Team Champions hit their signature spots is always a treat for those in attendance and myself. Props to The Ascension for selling their offense nicely as well.
Jack Swagger def. Tyler Breeze
Although he's nowhere near the level he was once at, Swagger remains a talented hand in the ring, but to me, he's damaged goods. Meanwhile, there is still hope for Breeze. He's been booked like an enhancement talent for the past month or so, but needless to say, he deserves much more than what he's been getting recently. He and Swagger contested a relatively solid matchup, but the decision to have Swagger go over was mind-boggling to me. I realize it's only Superstars and only two to three people watch the program (myself included), but any wins Breeze can get at this point are beneficial.
No Superstars show is ever really "must-see," but this was an above-average edition by Superstars standards. The Dudley Boyz made a rare appearance and had a fun match with The Ascension while Swagger and Breeze followed it up with a pretty good match of their own. Top it off with a hilarious backstage segment from The Social Outcasts (it airs immediately after Breeze vs. Swagger) and you have yourself an hour of wrestling that might be worth your time to check out.
