Zack Ryder def. Heath Slater
It's always fun whenever Ryder makes an appearance in New York and this was no exception. The Brooklyn crowd was heavily behind him the entire bout while Ryder and Slater worked a nice little matchup. The entertaining action spoke volumes as to how both of these guys can flat-out go but are relegated to being enhancement talent. I don't see this being as anything more than a one-off win for Ryder, but I still enjoyed it, nevertheless.
Naomi def. Cameron
This was a major improvement over their Raw match from a few years ago. It was odd their feud on TV was dropped so quickly given how much time they put into building it up, but this a good match that had meaning since it had history behind it. Needless to say, Cameron is a terrible in-ring worker, so thankfully Naomi was on offense for most of the match and the contest was kept relatively short and sweet.
This was an above-average edition of Superstars with two fun matches. Ryder showing up in New York is always a treat and the Divas match was better than one would expect. Although Raw this week wasn't great (and it hasn't been in a while), even the replays weren't too bad, and you'll definitely want to re-watch The Rock's return if you haven't already. In a nutshell, this is about as good of an episode as you'll get of the Thursday night show.
