Things We Learned From The Backlash Go-Home WWE SmackDown (May 16)

AJ Styles Vs Jinder Mahal

Owens agreed and said Mahal was going to talk about his match against Randy Orton at Backlash.

The WWE network is famed for its outrageous storylines, and Jinder Mahal is at the center of one of the most freakish storyline reversals for years.

Before Orton defends the WWE Championship against Jinder Mahal, he gets a warm-up match against Baron Corbin. Mahal's promotion to championship status gives WWE fans on the Indian sub-continent a champion that they can identify with, and root for.

"Jinder Mahal as WWE champ in SmackDown.then a subsequent feud with Rusev".

Owens will also be in the ring tonight but not in the role you'd expect.

Brewers fall to Padres in extra innings
Counsell said the big first inning "does a lot for your starting pitcher as much as anything, that he's got some breathing room". The Padres had the potential winning run at third with less than two outs in the sixth, seventh and ninth and failed to score.

Despite his best efforts, the numbers game was too much for The Phenomenal One to handle as the Singh Brothers distracted the referee in order to allow Owens to nail Styles in the leg with the United States Championship as he was setting up to deliver a Phenomenal Forearm.

This new push for Mahal to become a contender is kind of an odd one largely because he's been a mid to low-card contender for so long. The suggestion is that racism and intolerance will make Mahal a figure of hate, and cement him as one of the WWE's top heels.

Breezango def. The Colons by Fandango pinning Epico Colon with the Falcon Arrow. Charlotte Flair, Naomi, Becky Lynch as well as Tamina, Carmella, and Natalya were introduced. Will a title match be announced for Money in the Bank?

I know everyone says that cable ratings aren't as important as they used to be, but when viewership is declining week after week, it adds up. But, before that, these six have to sign a contract tonight which may end as a result of brawling in the ring. Also, Baron Corbin delivered an ambush to Zayn to make their match official for this Sunday. Because of SmackDown's moniker as the Land of Opportunity, many felt this was a slight against them, causing Natalya to form The Welcoming Committee with returning veteran Tamina and the cocky Carmella. This distracted Naomi and Carmella rolled her up for the win. He said that everyone including him is looking forward to seeing Nakamura make his main roster debut including him.

After a quick commercial break, Corbin is beating Orton down in the corner and then chokes him on the ropes. The Singh Brothers came to ringside and attacked him.
