Mahal was angry at his followers for failing him, and the offer to apologize by publically kiss the Modern Day Maharaja's feet. They promised to never let Nakamura hurt him again. Just as they are about to do so, Shinsuke Nakamura makes his way to the ring. This led to Orton running down to make the save but that didn't last long as Rusev ran down and hit a super kick to Orton. Mahal hits the khallas and stands tall. Benjamin returned to SmackDown, last week when a promo announced he would be Chad Gable's new tag team partner, but it's likely that he has a bigger part to play. Gable back in and the suplexes continue. The Ascension via pinfall: The two are not called "American Alpha" and are not using Gable's awesome theme music (nor Benjamin's classic "ain't no stoppin' me now" intro). The night began with Baron Corbin blaming Cena for his failed Money in the Bank Cash in, dissing him for running off to Raw and promising that he would claim the United States Open challenge later in the evening.
They lock up and exchange shots. Styles quickly submitted Dillinger with the Calf Crusher, and Corbin laid out the rookie after the match before engaging Styles in a stare-off. Baron Corbin and Tye Dillinger get into to a shoving match on the ramp. Styles goes for the Phenomenal forearm, but Tye is able to catch him on his shoulders. It's good to see that Shinsuke is still in the main event picture, but is anyone really clamoring for Rusev-Orton? Rusev said that tonight's match is all about revenge. They are not friends and after tonight, he is coming for that WWE title.
They lock up and Kanellis knocked him down. Roode with a big boot and a neck breaker off the middle rope.
Well here was a most satisfying squash match, as Bobby Roode used the most glorious of DDTs to put Mike Kanellis down for the three-count.
Then, there's Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon's blooming feud. He tells Owens to shut it and tells English to get back in the ring. Konnor low bridges him to the floor and we go screen in screen. This led to McMahon walking out to the stage. He made it clear that Owens lost to Styles. McMahon is exhausted of hearing Owens' complaints and decides to get back to the scheduled action. Aiden has a match with Sami Zayn. During the matchup, Kevin Owens got involved and took away the referee's shirt, saying he wasn't doing his job right. Zayn tosses English from the ring and follows with a plancha. Owens pop-up powerbombed Sami, then gave English a fast count of three.
