Video: Feb. 1 episode of WWE Superstars online now

The latest episode of WWE Superstars is available for consumption and won't assuage fears the United States Championship has gone the way of the buffalo. The champion takes on R-Truth in a non-title match and well, the results aren't pretty for those hoping to see a rise in solid, mid-card talent.

You'll also see the team of Kelly Kelly and Alicia Fox taking on The Bella Twins -- get those stars ready, Meltzer ... five should do the trick -- while the opening match sees Jinder Mahal facing off against Yoshi Tatsu in a "Loser Gets a Racially Insensitive Gimmick" match. Spoiler alert: they both lose.

I wish the WWE would give their characters more depth. It seems each of their Superstars outside the main event have only one facet to their characters. Mahal is the Indian guy, Cody Rhodes is a ... supervillain, I guess? Even the top dogs get only one or two extra wrinkles. John Cena apparently thinks being gay is funny AND doesn't ever give up.

Give us characters we actually care about and your ratings will increase, WWE, this I promise.
