Nia Jax def. Alicia Fox
When these two last faced off at Clash of Champions one month ago, Jax won in decisive fashion, and we haven't seen her until now, and this is Superstars. Do they really have nothing for her on Raw at the moment? This was similar to their pay-per-view match in that it was mostly a showcase for Jax but Fox was able to score some offense and hit her finisher at one point. I guess it's possible they're holding off on bringing back Jax to TV until after Hell in a Cell so she can feud with Sasha Banks over the Raw Women's Championship, but even then might be too soon to do that program.
Darren Young def. Jinder Mahal
Young and Mahal have had a handful of matches against each other for months now, so this really wasn't anything new. It was a well-wrestled match for what it was worth, and on the bright side, the crowd was surprisingly more behind Young than past audiences have been. He still needs a consistent string of meaningful victories on Raw in order get some momentum going, though.
I believe this marked Jax's WWE Superstars debut, so I guess the episode was newsworthy in that respect. Her match with Fox was short and sweet yet not must-see by any means. As for Young vs. Mahal, if you've seen one of their matches, you have seen them all. That said, this was a relatively average edition of Superstars, meaning it's entirely skippable.
