Jinder Mahal vs. John Cena

WWE SmackDown Live Preview (8/15/17): The Down & Dirty On Tonight's Show

"We all want to see John cry", she teased of inviting the cameras in to see her and Cena tie the knot. WWE has now done this twice with Cena (Cena-Nakamura and Cena-Mahal).

Mahal informed the fans that today is Indian Independence Day.

WWE NXTWednesday, August 16 at 8pm ET With NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III only a few days away, Drew McIntyre battles Roderick Strong in the main event while undefeated NXT Women's Champion Asuka and Ember Moon meet to sign their contract for TakeOver.

Hold on. Are Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair doing anything at SummerSlam? After the match, Natalya continued to attack Lynch until Naomi ran her off. Natalya won by submission with a Sharpshooter.

That is now gone for Nakamura, if he wins on Sunday.

Tamina is grilling Lana on why she doesn't have a match tonight.

Phillips says this might be the biggest match in Smackdown's history. Other than that we'll be pushing some of Sunday's lower card matches as well. Who would argue over swapping Orton out for Gable? That is a mistake. Nakamura steps in the ring and Mahal asks him how dare he disparage Mahal's people on their day. Rusev throws Gable over the announce table and he crashes into the announcers' chairs, prompting the ref to call for the disqualification. Orton poses on the corner and stares at Rusev on the mat. Kevin Owens interrupted, and when Styles and Owens nearly came to blows, McMahon stopped Styles. Shane tells AJ that there is no need to apologize. Shane knows it was an accident. That sounds like a threat to AJ. Kevin is loving the rules that Shane is setting. The ensuing argument lets Owens superkick Shane by mistake. Owens ducks AJ, who almost decks Shane. The New Day members hit sliding dropkicks in tandem on the Usos at ringside, then brawl with them in front of the announcers' desk.

During the break, the Usos take control. Jey superkicks Kofi's knee and a double superkick his jaw for the pin at 7:49. Nothing gets solved, though. At SummerSlam the Nakamura Dynasty will begin. That's right: The last Cena victory at SummerSlam was the one against The Nexus, back in 2010. All the rumors have him going to RAW and showing up on their next Pay-Per-View. Jinder got some help from The Singh Brothers too, who were in the ringside. Cena dodges a splash in the corner, and answers with a shoulder block. Mahal and the Singhs laugh at Corbin from the stage as he trashes the ringside arena. Back in the ring, Jinder continues the offense with a stalling vertical suplex. That means the STF but Mahal is over to the ropes. Jinder stalks Cena, but can't lock in the Khallas. Cena takes Mahal to the top turnbuckle and drops him with an AA from up high. Not only that, but it appeared that Corbin kicked out before the three count and the referee took a long, long time before ringing the bell to start the match. AJ leaves next as Shane slowly gets up and heads to the ramp.

Mahal surely has Cena to thank for being able to pin down Corbin. In a split second, that briefcase that seemed to be setting up Corbin for a big push as WWE Champion, was gone.
