Sin Cara def. Bo Dallas
Sin Cara had his own entrance music before he started teaming with Kalisto, so why is he still using the Lucha Dragons song even though they have since split up? At least Bo Dallas is back to using his "motivational" music following the dissolution of The Social Outcasts. Dallas can be entertaining on his own, but Cara, despite being a passable performer, bores me to tears. The guy was damaged goods years ago, and without Kalisto, I fear the writing is on the wall for him. This was a pretty bland bout and I would have rather seen Dallas score the victory because he has more of an upside at this point.
Titus O'Neil and Jack Swagger def. The Dudley Boyz
I would have stuck with the team of Swagger and Mark Henry, who teamed up on a recent edition of Superstars or Main Event (I forgot which one) and have been joining forces on-and-off all year. O'Neil should be doing his own thing, but that's merely nitpicking. I found this to be more enjoyable than the previous match if only because The Dudley Boyz are extra entertaining as heels and know how to work a crowd. I applaud them for putting over younger talent, though I wouldn't have had them lose to a duo that isn't even a regular tandem.
Similar to how I mentioned Main Event was SmackDown's new Velocity earlier this week, Superstars is now the equilvent to what Sunday Night Heat once was back in the day, except it's on Fridays. The opening song wasn't new, either, so that was a bit disappointing. Either way, both bouts were decent at best yet not at all worth going out of your way to see.
