Sami Zayn def. Jinder Mahal
For a man who supposedly comes in peace, Jinder Mahal found himself in quite a fit after “the intruder with the absurd name of Gronk” cost him the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and he made his objections quite clear to new Raw General Manager Kurt Angle. Unfortunately, he interrupted Sami Zayn’s own meeting with The Olympic Hero, which led to a match between the two.
Jinder wasn’t about to be hindered, though, jumping Sami before the bell and beating him about the ring to such a degree that the ref almost called off the match. Zayn insisted to continue and followed through on that gutsiness, hitting an exploder on a rampaging Mahal and connecting with the Helluva Kick for a win that’s sure to increase his stock in next week’s shake-up.
