Nikki Bella def. Alicia Fox
I'm fairly surprised that Nikki hasn't been featured on WWE TV more prominently since the "firing" of her sister Brie. You'd think The Authority would make her life miserable on a weekly basis on Raw. I realize they did that by putting in a 2-on-1 Handicap match following Payback, but that's it? Anyway, this was a decent enough match with nice work from both ladies. Nikki has improved immensely in the ring in the last year or so and Fox has always been a solid worker. Nikki emerging victorious was no surprise. Fox's post-match meltdown with her throwing her shoes at Nikki was perhaps her weakest freakout yet.
Rob Van Dam def. Jack Swagger
I remember complaining the last two times Swagger and RVD faced off that their matches were too brief, so I was very glad to see them finally get their due on Superstars. The match was given great time and it allowed both competitors to develop nice chemistry together. Swagger hasn't mean anything in forever, but there's no denying he can flat-out go in the ring and he showed that here against RVD. This was definitely one of the better Superstars matches in recent memory and was a fun showcase for both RVD and Swagger.
Is it just me or has Superstars been a lot better as of late? It's not because it's on the WWE Network because the show was still the same old, same old only a more or so ago. However, it's really come a long way in recent weeks. It's no Raw or SmackDown, but this was an easy hour of wrestling to digest with two good matches that I'd recommend checking out to any fan.
