I reviewed Superstars here:
http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/07/wwe-superstars-7122013-results-and.html

Superstars 7/12/13 had:
Darren Young vs Justin Gabriel
Antonio Cesaro vs Zack Ryder

Overall thoughts: Good show with both matches being good. Cesaro/Ryder was the highlight and both up a pretty good performance for it. I think this one is worth a look.

Full of questions after reading that show breakdown:

A) has Dawson worked for the WWE/been Superstars commentator long? Not familiar with the dude...

B) was the R-Truth commentary a onetime deal, or has he been on Superstars doing this long?

C) Why not throw Young a bone and give him the win to give the PTP a little shine? Gabriel isn't going up the card anytime soon...

In years ahead, Main Event and Superstars (and to an extent Saturday Morning Slam, if it continues) will make for awesome compilation material.

 

Cesaro has been on an absolute roll this year, getting really good matches out of a slew of uninteresting guys. As much as I'd rather not see him teaming with Swagger, I'd be down with them getting a good Tag Title reign when The Shield drop them.

Dawson's been on there since around January of this year. Truth on commentary was a first, they had Alex Riley on the last 2 weeks as they are replacing the recently released Matt Striker. Now Riley's been moved to NXT commentary so maybe they're testing out others each week or just switching it up like they do on Main Event.

Dunno what's gotten in to R-Truth, but I dug his match with Drew McIntyre on this week's Superstars. It wasn't given as much time as his really good Main Event match with Wade Barrett, but he still put in a grand effort. It's like he's realised he's getting on a bit now and needs to bust his arse.

I really liked their match. Truth sold well and McIntyre really is one of the better workers on the roster, but he's probably ruined with his gimmick.

Superstars 8/2/2013 had:
R-Truth vs Drew McIntyre
Sin Cara vs Curt Hawkins

I reviewed the show here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/08/wwe-superstars-822013-results-and-review.html

Overall thoughts: They had two good matches here and that's really about all you can ask out of Superstars. As always, this wasn't must see but the two matches were fine and worth my time.

I reviewed this week's Superstars here:
http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/08/wwe-superstars-892013-results-and-review.html

Overall thoughts: Well, one match was good and the other wasn't and really, no Superstars is must see, so I wouldn't really recommend it. But, the tag was fine and if you like the PTP's, you will like their match.

It hasn't been a great year for Superstars with their being basically 2 ***+ matches a month. There's just only so much you can do with 20 minutes of allotted match time. There was also a lot of Khali and Tons of Shit. I really recommend checking out the 5/11 edition though as that instantly sprung to mind and multiple people really enjoyed it. Please keep in mind though that I tend to remember that stuff that wasn't as far back and enjoy the diva's more than most people do.

 

Top 5 maybe are:

1. Gabriel vs Rhodes 5/11 - http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/05/wwe-superstars-5112013-results-and_11.html

2. Miz vs Wade Barrett 6/28 - http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/06/wwe-superstars-6282013-results-and.html

3. Ryder vs Cesaro 3/22 - http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/03/wwe-superstars-3222013-review.html

4. Funkadactyl's vs Fox/Natalya 2/23 - Again, I tend to enjoy the diva's more than most people. - http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/02/wwe-superstars-2232013-review.html

5. Ted Jr vs Michael McGillicutty 5/11 - http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/05/wwe-superstars-5112013-results-and_11.html
