WWE Smackdown: Jinder Mahal pins Randy Orton during 6-Man Tag Match

WWE Smackdown: Jinder Mahal pins Randy Orton during 6-Man Tag Match

Owens brags about injuring Chris Jericho last week, and he says that after he retains the United States Championship against AJ Styles at Backlash, he is coming after the WWE Championship to become the Face of WWE.

Even Baron Corbin, a former NXT export like Mahal who has not yet won a single championship on the main roster, felt like a bigger star. Charlotte and Naomi have chose to group together, plus they've gotten even more assistance in the form of Becky Lynch.

It's announced that Randy Orton will team with AJ Styles and Sami Sayn to take on Kevin Owens, Jinder Mahal and Baron Corbin in the main event.

Harper seems to have the match in his favor when Rowan grabs his sheep masks.

This led to a six-woman tag team match at Backlash between Charlotte, Naomi, and Becky against the three members of the Welcoming Committee.

Kevin Owens entered and told the two to stop bickering as no one cared about India, the House of Horrors match or England.

Tewatia was the pick of the bowlers, returning figures of 2/18, while Mohit's 2/24 earned him the Man of the Match award. KKR began with all guns blazing with Sunil Narine and Lynn finding the runs with boundaries during the power-play overs.

That contest, in which Mahal was the least credible Superstar involved, ended with the No. 1 contender pinning Orton clean in the center of the ring for what was undeniably the biggest win of his career.

Breezango vs. The Ascension up next with the Fashion Police prevailing.

Perhaps the most worthless match WWE has put on television in a while, particularly since Harper is a better worker and has some mic skills - he's a guy that needs as many wins as he can get and should go over.

Dolph Ziggler has been bothered and annoyed by Shinsuke Nakamura over the past few weeks, so he calls out the King of Strong Style.

Breezango def. The Ascension via pinfall: Fandango hit The Last Dance for the victory.

Ahead of their highly anticipated arrival, The New Day declares that the rest of SmackDown LIVE's tag teams are booty. However, Jinder Mahal is the legal man. Mahal takes advantage of Orton's unawareness to pin the WWE Champion after a Cobra Clutch slam.
