Lines got drawn in the sand as several Team Blue rivalries escalated
The WWE Championship picture between titleholder Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal intersected with the brewing rivalry between United States Champion Kevin Owens and AJ Styles. The Maharaja, flanked by The Singh Brothers, and The Viper got into a war of words before KO and The Phenomenal One each made their way out and started tossing verbal jabs as well. Baron Corbin then made his presence felt, but before he could hit the ring, Sami Zayn bombarded him to get even after The Lone Wolf’s attack on The Underdog from The Underground on WWE Network's Talking Smack two weeks ago.
This led to a melee between all the Superstars with Orton, Styles and Zayn holding off Mahal, Owens, Corbin and The Singh Brothers … for now.
