Raw recap of Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter, and Rusev and Lana's detente. I really wish Superstars wasn't just a replay of Raw. However, I have to say I'm pretty excited for the Swagger vs. Rusev match.
Another Raw recap of Jericho's beef with Bray Wyatt. I'm excited for this match as well, mostly because I'm a huge Jerichoholic. I think it will give Bray Wyatt a chance to shine in the ring with one of pro-wrestling's finest.

Truth and Ryback had a decent match, but once again it was highly predictable. R-Truth has been damned to jobber status for quite some time now and week after week continues to lose on Superstars. In fact, I can't even remember the last time Truth won a match. I wish we could get some better matches out of Superstars. I know it's pretty much the Raw warm-up show, but at least get some good matches out there from some serious midcard contenders. I spend most of my time watching Superstars playing on my phone, so what does that tell you? However, it is what is is, and it was decent at best.
