R-Truth def. Heath Slater
It seems when Truth isn't facing Bo Dallas, his opponent is Slater, another guy who I couldn't care less about. No knock on Slater as I've praised his selling ability before, but it helps when he's in there with someone who can showcase their skills and can use the win. It's well-documented that I'm no fan of Truth and thus his matches bore me to tears, but on the bright side, this bout didn't last too long and his "feud" with King Barrett finally appears to be done with, so there is that.
Neville def. Bo Dallas
Neville's slowly becoming a regular on Superstars, which frightens me. He still has his feud with Stardust going (or at least on SmackDown), but it feels like filler before Stardust presumably moves on to Stephen Amell/The Arrow in time for SummerSlam. These two have always worked well together and I appreciated how Dallas was on offensive for most of it so it wasn't such a one-sided squash. It wasn't the best match they've ever had, but at the very least it was competent.
You know anything involving Truth and Slater in the same match is going to be a waste of time, while Neville vs. Dallas was decent but ultimately paled in comparison to their past encounters. Neither of the two featured matches particularly held my interest, so it's safe to say this episode is worth skipping over this week. If nothing else, tune in for the replay of the epic brawl between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker from Monday's Raw and relive it in all its glory.
