Neville def. Titus O'Neil
Both of these guys have been permanent fixtures on WWE Superstars for months, yet I don't think we've seen them against each other in one-on-one action, right? If they have faced off, I don't recall that whatsoever. At any rate, this was a fine enough match that never seemed to get off the ground (until Neville hit the Red Arrow, anyway). Neither Neville nor O'Neil have any momentum on their side right now, so the fans largely sat on their hands for this.

I had zero idea this was taped for Superstars when it was announced for the Hell in a Cell card this past week. I'm assuming no one else knew that either considering I didn't hear anyone else mention it. If this match was any indication, that Hell in a Cell Kickoff match should be good. It wasn't as exhilarating as it would have been in the Cruiserweight Classic or even on NXT (see: this week's episode), but it was still very well-wrestled and better than anything involving Jinder Mahal, Curtis Axel, etc.
This episode was a refreshing change of pace for Superstars, which is typically boring because we see the same stagnant matches every week. This show is certainly worth going out of your way to see the six-man tag team match, but I'd understand if you instead wanted to hold off until Hell in a Cell. As for Neville vs. O'Neil, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but at least it hasn't been done to death in the past.
