Darren Young def. Curtis Axel
It's really a shame WWE wasted any momentum Young had coming off his hot re-debut over the summer. Now, he's back to where he was before, just with Bob Backlund in his corner. Meanwhile, Axel is irrelevant as ever. Thankfully, both guys are good workers and they contested a pretty decent match here with Young scoring the win as he should have. Does this mean the painful feud between Young and Titus O'Neil has finally come to an end?
The Golden Truth def. Jinder Mahal and Titus O'Neil
Putting four people I couldn't care less about in one match is never a positive thing. It didn't help that the match was mediocre at best and nothing special stood out about it. As a result, it was difficult to get invested in the action and the match felt like it dragged. I guess this answered the question of whether Mahal would be pushed coming off his rare Raw win over Jack Swagger last week.
While I liked how both bouts were relatively fresh and haven't been done to death before, this still felt like a dull show to me. Even SmackDown Live's undercard appears to be more exciting as Superstars almost always features matches I don't have much interest in. Young vs. Axel was solid while it lasted, but the subsequent tag match was total throwaway.
