Match 1
Jack Swagger vs Jinder Mahal
(referee: John Cone)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Jack Swagger wins via submission with the Patriot Lock
Time: 4:11

Match Thoughts
This is a good, straightforward match. Mahal started off very aggressively, catching Swagger off-guard. The bulk of the match consists of Swagger fighting back from that early disadvantage. I like it.


From RAW, Finn Balor has to relinquish the Universal Title.

From RAW, Charlotte celebrates her title win.

Brock Lesnar destroyed Randy Orton at Summer Slam.


Match 2
Golden Truth vs Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel
(referee: Darrick Moore)

Show/Hide Results

Result: R-Truth pins Curtis Axel after Solid Gold
Time: 7:45 (1 break)

Match Thoughts
This match was pretty fun. Bo Dallas stood out the most, mostly for his comedy interactions with both Goldust and R-Truth. The match wasn’t terribly competitive, but I suppose that wasn’t really the point.


From RAW, Jericho faces Reigns to decide who will be the last person to compete for the Universal Title next week.


Show Impressions
Not a bad episode of Superstars. I liked both of the matches.

Match of the Night
Jack Swagger vs Jinder Mahal
This was a difficult decision since I like both matches pretty much equally but for very different reasons. I think I’d probably go back and watch the Swagger/Mahal match more because it was just a solid match as opposed to mostly comedy.
