In a contest that had a little bit of everything, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal took on Luke Harper in a wild main event on SmackDown LIVE. Looking to claim one of the biggest victories of his career, Harper brought everything in his arsenal against Mahal. Midway through the match, The Modern-Day Maharaja had more than just the contest to worry about, as Mr. Money in the Bank Baron Corbin arrived and lurked around ringside for few moments. The Lone Wolf seemingly considered cashing in, only to exit with a sly smile on his face.
Following the potential anarchy of a Corbin cash-in, Mahal was able to focus and defeat Harper with The Khallas. However, the evening wasn’t quite over for Mahal, as Randy Orton then meticulously attacked both The Singh Brothers and Mahal, hammering away at the WWE Champion and delivering a devastating DDT to the WWE Champion on the outside. The Singh Brothers then attacked The Apex Predator, allowing Mahal to get out of dodge, but the duo paid for their troubles when they each ate RKOs outta nowhere.
The message was clear — The Viper is coming for The Modern-Day Maharaja.
