Surprise WWE debuts on Smackdown

Bobby Roode

The unofficial number one contender for WWE Champion Jinder Mahal's title, Shinsuke Nakamura took out the Maharaja's sidekicks, the "Singh Brothers", in a handicapped match on the latest episode of WWE SmackDown Live.

Will Nakamura be looking for payback?

Smackdown general manager Daniel Bryan introduced the three-time Intercontinental Champion to the man he intends to pair him up with in a new tag team, Chad Gable. While handing over the title to Shinsuke Nakamura so early in his career was debatable, no one expected Jinder Mahal to retain the title. Additionally, Brian Kendrick and Jack Gallagher will clash in a Gentleman's Duel.

Backstage - Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn: Owens approached Zayn, saying he was hoping to find him backstage. Bryan said that Mahal can't win a match without help so tonight, Shinsuke Nakamura will have a chance at retribution because he will wrestle both Singh Brothers. Frustrated, Corbin handed McMahon the referee uniform making the commissioner now in charge of the match. Owens wanted a special referee and Styles was fine with it because he can beat him and it doesn't matter to him who the referee is. Rhode would get a huge reaction from the crowd and go on to defeat English via pinfall after hitting a Glorious DDT for the win. Seeking some payback, the king of strong style chose to subject the two to a handicap match, where the odds were ever in the favour of the single challenger as he demolished the pair and ended the match with a decisive Triangle Choke to Samir. After the match, they cut a promo and put every tag team on notice because they will suffer the same fate as The New Day. It seems like SmackDown is leading towards a Shane McMahon/Kevin Owens match, and this further pushed the show in that direction.

When the main event match arrived, "The Lone Wolf" Baron Corbin was Owens' special guest referee. This led McMahon to run down to the ring to debate with Corbin, allowing Owens the opportunity to hit a low blow on Styles behind Corbin's back.

Carmella tries to stay out of the match but once she's tagged in, Naomi hits her with the split-legged moonsault to pick up a win, gaining some of her momentum back. Styles said that Corbin will have an opportunity if he answers the U.S. Open challenge because the challenge will be open every week. AJ Styles let Corbin know that he could answer his "US Open Challenge" if Styles was the victor, and Owens told Corbin he'd give him first shot at the title if he was the victor.

An exasperated Owens could not believe what unfolded after the match and stared blankly at the ring, which still contained Styles and McMahon.
