The Lucha Dragons def. The Ascension
For a match we've already seen a thousand and one times before, I liked how they added a new twist on it after The Ascension eliminated The Lucha Dragons from the Elimination Chamber match last Sunday. It at least made the match more meaningful despite the match not being any better/different. I didn't mind the match, but it was the same usual formula of The Ascension dominating most of the bout with headlocks only for The Lucha Dragons to bounce back in the final few minutes.
Luke Harper and Erick Rowan def. Los Matadores
This wasn't much more than a standard squash win for Harper and Rowan, but what confused the most about it was the Matadores portraying babyfaces. I could have sworn they were heels as of Elimination Chamber, so that didn't make any sense here. Other than that, I always enjoy an old fashioned beating of the Matadores and it's another nice, dominant win for Harper and Rowan. Hopefully we see them mix it up in the WWE Tag Team Championship picture again soon.
As you could tell, this edition of Superstars was essentially a tag team showcase. Neither match was particularly good or memorable, but they succeeded in what they set out to do in getting the teams that won, over. It just doesn't help that we've seen both matches a handful of times before. Jimmy Uso was an interesting addition to commentary and he made each match more enjoyable with his insight on tag team wrestling. At the very least, he gives him something to do while his brother is out injured, so I'd be fine with this being a regular gig for him in the meantime.
