Shinsuke Nakamura def. local competitor; R-Truth wins the 24/7 Championship

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Andrew Howard: SmackDown LIVE, Sept. 3, 2019

Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura practices his in-ring poetry against local challenger Andrew Howard as Sami Zayn commentates.

Clearly looking to send a statement to his WWE Clash of Champions opponent The Miz, Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura made an example out of a local competitor on SmackDown LIVE … and Sami Zayn talked. THE. WHOLE. DANG. TIME.

Nakamura, of course, made quick work of the local competitor, finishing him off with a brutal Kinshasa. However, another titleholder came into the mix when 24/7 Champion Bo Dallas (who had captured the title earlier in the evening by pinning Drake Maverick in the boiler room) darted to the ring to get away from the mob chasing him, but he was caught and defeated by the man he had defeated, Maverick.

Maverick’s reign was also short-lived, as R-Truth inexplicably popped out from the King of the Ring throne to sneak up behind Drake and roll him up for three to regain the 24/7 Championship in incredibly royal fashion.
