Stardust def. Darren Young
I know I wasn't the only one surprised to see Stardust in action after he teased on Twitter on Monday that he was doing away with the gimmick. Now, that might be something coming down the road and not immediately, but sooner the better in my opinion as he's beyond irrelevant at this point and a change in character could do wonders for him. Meanwhile, I've said in the past that Young doesn't get the credit he deserves for being as competent of a worker as he is, and he certainly does try to get the crowd behind him during his matches. The audience was relatively quiet for this contest, but it was enjoyable while it lasted.
Titus O'Neil def. Tyler Breeze
Is it just me or is anyone else starting to get sick of Breeze's opponents mimicking his middle-of-the-rope taunt? It was funny when Jushin Liger did it in Brooklyn, but now everyone seems to be doing it and it's grown old fast. You don't need me to tell you that Breeze is stuck in a rut at the moment and how disappointing it is to see, but at least O'Neil is winning on a consistent basis. Now the question is whether they will ever elevate him to the next level with these victories or continue to relegate him to Superstars.
After a pretty great week for wrestling, this was a nice, relaxing way of topping everything off. I was fully expecting two matches that have been done to death, as is usually the case with this show, but instead we were treated to two fresh matches that were well-wrestled and featured entertaining action. Given how awesome Raw was on Monday night, this edition of Superstars is worth watching for the Raw recaps alone, but the two matches are fun as well.
