Orton and Mahal collide in non-title Grudge Match
WWE Champion Jinder Mahal and Randy Orton will collide tonight on SmackDown LIVE in a non-title grudge match. The rivalry between the two Superstars had been largely silent since their last meeting at WWE Battleground, when The Modern-Day Maharaja escaped the Punjabi Prison to retain his title, thanks to an assist from The Great Khali, who held Orton inside the massive structure.
Many thought their rivalry would be put on the back burner with both men focusing on separate matches at SummerSlam — Orton with Rusev and Mahal defending his title against Shinsuke Nakamura. Instead, these fierce rivals will clash again on SmackDown LIVE. Will the score be settled, or will one of the most intense rivalries in WWE continue? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!
