Jinder Mahal pins Randy Orton again

Jinder Mahal pins Randy Orton again

After winning a Six-Pack Challenge, Mahal will face Orton at Backlash. An alliance between Zayn, Orton and Styles that held off Mahal, Corbin and the super Singh brothers. Charlotte and Naomi have made a decision to group together, plus they've gotten even more assistance in the form of Becky Lynch.

Erick Rowan won with a swinging World's Strongest Slam.

Jinder Mahal's lack of credibility was once again apparent Tuesday night as he interrupted WWE champion Randy Orton's opening promo and shared the screen with the likes of AJ Styles and the United States champion Kevin Owens.

Predictions & Winner: Kevin Owens shaved his beard, adopted the colors of the Good Ol' USA and reclaimed the US Championship from the former best friend who beat him for it. Rowan has had a decent run since his return a few weeks ago, but Luke Harper seemed to get the short end of the stick when it came to the WrestleMania feud between Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton.

Dolph Ziggler confronted Shinsuke Nakamura inside the ring.

In what was supposed to be a one-on-one match, Natalya was joined by Carmella, James Ellsworth and Tamina at the ringside while Smackdown Live Women's Champion Noami and Charlotte were at Becky's corner. A pity then, as nobody told them that you can't intimidate the fashion police. Saving his first WWE main roster match for this PPV is a smart move by the company as NXT fans will love it, and those who have never seen him wrestle will be sure to tune in.

Tyler Breeze & Fandango continue to investigate The Usos ahead of WWE Backlash until they're forced to re-open a case they thought was closed.

Breezango defeated The Ascension in a quick matchup to gain momentum for Backlash. Both are headed for a match at Backlash 2017.

Ahead of their highly anticipated arrival, The New Day declares that the rest of SmackDown LIVE's tag teams are booty.

All competitors fight in the ring and it leads to Randy Orton hitting Kevin Owens with an RKO.
