Becky Lynch def. Summer Rae
It's extremely rare that main roster feuds are furthered (let alone acknowledged) on Superstars, so this match earned brownie points with me based off just that. Not to mention it was well-wrestled and Lynch and Rae work well together. Natalya performed pretty well on commentary and hyped her upcoming match with Lynch at Battleground. She comes across much better as a heel than she ever did as a babyface, and this feud has been a breath of fresh air for the women's division. I've heard rumors of Superstars being Raw exclusive post-Draft, so I hope we get more of this storyline progression on the show going forward.
Sami Zayn def. Curtis Axel
No, Zayn wrestling on Superstars should not be seen as a demotion considering he is involved in a high profile program with Kevin Owens at the moment. If anything, it was a significant boost for Superstars, and we got a fresh match with Axel out of his appearance. Despite being creatively directionless, Axel is a fairly talented hand in the ring, and Zayn is excellent himself of course, so it was nice they were able to contest the match they were capable of and were given an ample amount of time.
This was the most star-studded edition of Superstars in some time with Lynch and Zayn in action and making their respective debuts on the program. While Summer and Axel are regulars on Superstars, both are underrated and had enjoyable matches with their opponents. This is about as must-see as it gets for this show with a lively crowd to boot, so check these two matches out at your convenience.
