Darren Young def. Jinder Mahal
While I like Young and believe he was dealt a bad hand when he returned to TV in an awful feud with Titus O'Neil, WWE is really wasting Bob Backlund in this role as Young's manager at this point. If Young is going to be relegated to Superstars on a weekly basis, why keep him around? At any rate, this was a fine enough match and Young tried his hardest to get the audience engaged in the action, but they most sat on their hands because fans have zero incentive to care for either guy right now.
Neville def. Curtis Axel
We've seen this match a handful of times since Neville's return back in late July, so needless to say, this wasn't anything new. It's a good thing Neville is entertaining to watch in the ring because fans don't have a reason to get behind him at the moment. He's been directionless forever. Although this match was decent while it lasted, it was ultimately forgettable.
There isn't anything worse than an edition of Superstars that consists of two matches that have been done in the past. Young vs. Mahal was a dead match, while Neville vs. Axel was hardly noteworthy given it's happened so many times. There will be weeks where the show is passable, and other weeks such as this one where it doesn't have any redeeming qualities whatsoever.
