R-Truth def. Adam Rose
Is it just me or does Rose come out every week with a new gimmick? I realize the WWE brass couldn't care less him, but due to that, I couldn't care less about him, either. I could go on a whole rant why that's a massive disappointment after all the positive attention he received in the ESPN special earlier this year, but I'm sure it's already implied. As for this match, his opponent being R-Truth didn't do him any favors since he, too, has nothing going for him right now. The match was mere minutes long and I guess you could say it was kept short and sweet, but it felt more like a complete waste of time.
The Miz def. Zack Ryder
You know, this was a "dream match" of mine a few years back when both guys were still relevant. Needless to say, it really isn't a match I've been clamoring for ever since, but it was cool to see them go one-on-one considering it's something fresh and Miz hasn't been on Superstars in ages. Their styles clashed nicely and it made for a fun little matchup for the time it was given.
Although the opener between Truth and Rose was total throwaway, Miz vs. Ryder was a pleasant surprise. It wasn't must-see by any means, but I enjoyed it for what it was. That said, other than that bout, there's no real reason to check out this week's edition of Superstars, especially considering the Raw replays were downright horrendous.
