Braun Strowman def. Sin Cara
These two had a match that ended in a count-out last week on Raw, so I liked how they didn't waste any time in holding the rematch. I also liked how they switched up the Strowman formula by holding the match on Superstars as opposed to Raw. The match actually went longer than I figured it would and Cara scored more offense than any other enhancement talent Strowman has faced before, but it was still a simple squash for the former Wyatt Family member.
Darren Young and Neville def. Titus O'Neil and Curtis Axel
Speaking of keeping certain people off Raw, thank the lord they relegated the Young and O'Neil nonsense to Superstars this week. It has been an absolute train wreck of a feud since it started and I have little interest in finding out how it concludes. Thankfully, Neville and Axel were involved here in the mix as well, so the focus wasn't entirely on them. Granted, it was mostly a formulaic tag team match, but it was a nice change of pace for the program.
One could say WWE took the filler from most editions of Raw and put it on Superstars this week, but I actually thought it was an improvement for the show, especially over the tired matches we're so used to seeing at this point such as Jack Swagger vs. Jinder Mahal and Neville vs. Curtis Axel. Strowman made his Superstars debut, so that was worth noting, and the tag team match was well-wrestled, so this was an above-average episode all things considered. And how can you go wrong with a Bob Backlund appearance?
