The Lucha Dragons def. The Ascension
Did WWE really bring up The Ascension to the main roster to go undefeated only to make them enhancement talent when they eventually lost? That's what I've been getting out of most of their matches in recent weeks, which is a real shame because I would have preferred to see either of these teams in the WWE Tag Team Championship match at WrestleMania instead of The New Day or Los Matadores. Nevertheless, this was one of the better Ascension matches I've seen and that shouldn't be a surprise considering how well these two tandems worked late last year while feuding over the NXT tag titles. They had a fun match that would have benefited from a few more minutes. When will we finally get the pleasure of seeing The Lucha Dragons compete on Raw and SmackDown?
Zack Ryder def. Adam Rose
We've seen these two wrestle each other constantly in recent weeks, and while I applaud their effort for putting a "feud" together over social media, they have to switch it up a bit. As I said in my review of WWE Main Event for this week, would it kill WWE to put these two in a tag team match with Curtis Axel and Fandango or something? The countless singles matches get old after a while, especially if they all start to bleed together and nothing separates one from another. The only positive thing I can say about the match is the innovative finish with Ryder hitting the Rough Ryder off the top rope on Rose for the win.
It's always a treat to see The Lucha Dragons in action, so if you're not familiar with their work, I'd suggest checking out this show solely for their performance. The Ryder vs. Rose match was fine for what it was, but hardly anything worth watching, and lord knows you don't need to sit through this entire edition of Superstars at the risk of seeing the recaps from that awful Raw again, so watch the tag match and skip the rest.
