Dolph Ziggler def. Titus O'Neil
Can WWE please officially give O'Neil the nickname of Mr. Thursday Night? He is on every episode of Superstars, I swear. It's sad to see Ziggler has been relegated to working Superstars, but not surprising. All that said, Ziggler and O'Neil worked a good match. O'Neil's in-ring work needs improvement, but Ziggler carried him to a quality contest. The live crowd was heavily behind Ziggler and it was cool to see him kick off the show. This is the part of the review where I rant about O'Neil's poor position in the company, but I'll try to resist this week.
Adam Rose def. Heath Slater
For those keeping score at home, yes, this was technically the final appearances of Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal, as they were released today. This match also marked the Superstars debut of Rose, so it was notable for more than one reason. The match itself was fun, lighthearted comedy that didn't overstay its welcome. I'm still confused as to why Hornswoggle still has hair on half of his head instead of being completely bald. Here's hoping Rose working Superstars this week doesn't means officials have lost faith in the character already.
By Superstars standards, this was an above-average show. O'Neil vs. Ziggler was good and Rose vs. Slater was fun, so both matches were enjoyable. Even the Raw recaps weren't hard to sit through, but I'd skip through those anyway unless you wanted to listen to the great promos cut by The Shield on Monday night. This isn't a must-see episode of Superstars (when is it ever?), but it was entertaining for what it was worth.
