Jinder Mahal and Rusev got into a wild brawl with Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, flanked by The Singh Brothers, kicked off SmackDown LIVE to make it clear that he was ready to vanquish Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura alongside Rusev in the tag team main event tonight. He also made it clear that he would not stand for the disrespect that Nakamura showed him last week and that someone would have to pay. Well, someone turned into someone(s), as The Singh Brothers took full responsibility for last week, after failing against Nakamura in the 2-on-1 Handicap Match. The two then began to bow to The Modern Day Maharaja, looking for forgiveness before Nakamura’s music hit to break up the apologies.
WWE’s Rockstar bowed up to Mahal and his associates, but the numbers game quickly took over. However, The Viper then rushed out to even the odds, beginning to neutralize The Modern Day Maharaja and The Singhs. Their offensive flurry was short-lived when Rusev appeared out of nowhere to blindside both Nakamura and Orton. The four then used their numbers advantage to keep The King of Strong Style and The Apex Predator down … at least for now.
