We close out the show this week with a recap (of course) of John Cena & Roman Reigns vs Kane & Randy Orton from RAW.
Decent edition of Superstars this week. Disappointed in the Titus/Big E match because Titus really needs to start making some serious strides soon. He’s a big guy who can move well and has a lot of charisma…it baffles me why they just pretty much ignore him and leave him to do nothing on Superstars. Del Río & Truth had a nice little match too. Not bad at all this week.
