Braun Strowman and Ember Moon def. Kevin Owens and Natalya
Poor Owens. He got squashed by Strowman for months and even "quit" Raw (albeit for one week), but apparently that wasn't enough and he had to face off with his former foe again here. That aside, this was a good match and Moon filled in nicely for the injured Alexa Bliss nicely. I do hope we end up getting Team Little Big again if Bliss is cleared in time for the next matchup, but if not, Strowman and Moon have fine chemistry together.
AJ Styles and Charlotte Flair def. Jimmy Uso and Naomi
Styles and Flair are the perfect partners and gel very well character-wise, whereas Uso and Naomi are always a blast to watch because they're a couple in real life. This was a bit better than the previous match with all four stars having great showings and the intergender stuff was well done without going too overboard. It was definitely different than what you would see on any other WWE program, which is probably what I appreciated the most about it.
The tournament is working a little different this season with it being round-robin style instead of single elimination. I don't know if teams can face teams from the opposite brand, because so far it looks like it will be brand exclusive for now. At any rate, this was a solid season premiere for the show. I don't see why it's necessary, and there was a lot of fluff before the actual matches, but the bouts themselves were well-wrestled and more fun than what you would normally see on Raw and SmackDown Live because the Superstars had more freedom than usual.
