Naomi def. Alicia Fox
Neither Diva is involved in anything of note at the moment, which surprises the hell out of me given how both tremendously talented they are. Fox is still doing the crazy shtick, but that lost its luster a long time ago and I was glad it was kept at a minimum in this match. They worked a very well wrestled match and their amazing agility still amaze me. It was a nice win for Naomi and I'd just wish they'd do more with her and Fox for that matter.
Kofi Kingston def. Justin Gabriel
The dirt sheets raved about this match after it was initially announced on Monday night and thus I had high hopes. Surprisingly enough, my lofty expectations were ultimately met. I can't recall these two ever crossing paths in singles competition before this bout, which is shocking considering how long both competitors have been with the company. Their similar styles made for a very fun matchup that kept the crowd engaged. There were so many great reveals and the action was entertaining from start to finish. To top it all off, the finish was innovative and very well done. I could call this the greatest Superstars match of all-time, but that might not be saying much.
All the talk of the Kingston vs. Gabriel match will lead people to watch this episode and rightfully so. Hopefully they also got their eyes on the solid Fox vs. Naomi match which deserves equal praise. Needless to say, the Kingston vs. Gabriel match made this show worth watching even if the Raw replays were throwaway. Then again, you can skip the recaps anyway like I tend to do since it's on the WWE Network after all.
