R-Truth def. Heath Slater
Another week, another R-Truth match. Sigh. It has nothing to do with him, it has all to do with WWE having him compete against the same people every week, and this felt like a glorified house show match. Perhaps the most entertaining part of the match came when Xavier Woods said on commentary that because Slater owns a victory over Seth Rollins from last year, he deserves a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Does that mean everyone who beat Rollins before he became champ deserves a title opportunity? No, it had absolutely nothing to do with the match itself, but I found it funny.
Jack Swagger def. Adam Rose
I fully expected this to be a quick throwaway match with Swagger disposing of Rose within minutes, but it was much more competitive than I thought it would be. The match wasn't half-bad, either, and I liked the finish with Swagger locking in the Patriot Lock out of nowhere on Rose. Once again, however, Woods was the star of the match on commentary by talking about poop the entire time. If you don't think that's Vince McMahon telling him (and Rose) to say that constantly, you're out of your mind.
We're back to the paint-by-numbers editions of Superstars with the usual crew. Thus, I can't recommend you go out of your way to watch this episode because of how inconsequential both matches were, but if you have some time to kill, watch it merely for Woods' hilarious commentary. He's great as part of The New Day, but when his wrestling days come to an end, he might have a future behind the booth.
