Team Hogan and Team Flair came to blows on “Miz TV”
Hogan and Flair were each revved up from the jump, with both supremely confident in their respective team’s chances at WWE Crown Jewel. The Superstars engaged in some pre-match smack talk with insults flinging back and forth between the likes of Roman Reigns and King Corbin. Matters escalated quickly though, with Team Hogan members Reigns, Shorty G & Ali ready to punch Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn and King Corbin in the face. Zayn would first have Nakamura and Corbin refrain from such activity in the main event tonight, but then after some goading from The Hulkster, Zayn would agree to a Six-Man Tag Team Match, only with him not involved due to a supposed neck injury. However, Sami would have a replacement, a man itching for an opportunity on the blue brand: Cesaro.
The Swiss Superman’s arrival prompted a massive brawl between the two sides, with a massive melee going down that saw the Team Hogan representatives stand tall leading into the massive main event matchup.
