Becky Lynch vs Summer Rae
(referee: John Cone; guest commentary: Natalya)
Result: Becky Lynch wins via submission with Disarm Her
An okay match. Summer didn’t do a lot, and the finish had a really strange and ugly looking slam in it. It was odd.

Sami Zayn vs Curtis Axel w/ Heath Slater, Bo Dallas
(referee: Dan Engler)
Result: Sami Zayn wins via pinfall after a Helluva Kick
Time: 7:35 (1 break)
Good match. The finish seemed to take a little too long, but it was a nice match. Axel was good, but it very much felt like a warm-up match for Sami.
Replay of New Day at the Wyatt compound.

It was an okay Superstars, but nothing to go out of the way to see.
Match of the Night
Sami Zayn vs Curtis Axel
Easily. It was solid, if not terribly note-worthy.
