Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura battle for a WWE Championship opportunity tonight on SmackDown LIVE
A monumental first-time-ever battle will determine the next challenger for Jinder Mahal’s WWE Championship. Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura will collide for the huge opportunity tonight on SmackDown LIVE.
Both men certainly feel that they have been wronged by The Modern Day Maharaja in their last chances at the championship. Orton’s last championship opportunity ended with the shocking return of The Great Khali, who prevented him from escaping the Punjabi Prison. Nakamura’s title pursuit at SummerSlam was ruined by The Singh Brothers, who distracted The King of Strong Style, giving Mahal the opening he needed to leave Brooklyn with the championship.
Both Orton and Nakamura got measures of payback on Mahal and his crew in recent weeks, but still want the WWE Championship more than anything. Only one Superstar will earn the right to challenge Jinder Mahal. Who will it be: The Viper or The Artist Known as Shinsuke Nakamura? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
