Emma def. Summer Rae
These two have proven in the past that they work well together and that was on full display here. It wasn't given too much, but it was more than they would ever get on Raw or SmackDown. It featured good action as well as soom comedic antics. Come to think of it, this was probably one of the better Divas matches in recent memory. The crowd is slowly but surely getting behind Emma, so I would like to see her featured more prominently on Raw in the future, contending for the Divas Championship. Santino Marella's injury might have been a blessing in disguise since it now allows her to do her own thing, though their relationship probably isn't over based off backstage segments they've done together in recent weeks.
R-Truth and Xavier Woods def. 3MB
We saw this exact same match on Superstars last week and hardly anything was different about it. It wasn't a bad match by any means, but I found it difficult to get invested in the action. I was surprised by how long it lasted, but why not give more time to the women's match instead? They could have at least set this match up via a backstage segment or something to justify why a rematch was being held. If nothing else, it was nice for Woods to pick up the victory for the team as opposed to Truth this time. It's the small things that count sometimes.
I wouldn't suggest watching the entire show (and by 'entire show' I mean the two matches that actually aired), but the women's match between Emma and Summer was fun and worth going back to watch, especially those that might not be all that familiar with either girl in the ring. They might just surprise you. Needless to say, the tag team match was worth skipping, as it presented nothing viewers didn't already see last week.
