Jinder Mahal & Rusev def. Randy Orton & Bobby Roode
For Randy Orton to retain his United States Title at WrestleMania, he will need to outlast both Bobby Roode and Jinder Mahal in what is sure to be a hard-hitting Triple Threat Match, but The Viper teamed with The Glorious One tonight to take on Mahal & Rusev, who took the place of the injured Sunil Singh.

Despite a few disagreements in the early goings, Orton & Roode did their best to work in tandem against their common enemy. Mahal exploited the uneasy alliance when he tossed Roode into Orton, who looked poised to hit an RKO on The Bulgarian Brute. However, with WrestleMania looming, The Apex Predator had no patience for the accidental contact, and after a bit of a shoving match, Orton connected with an RKO that laid out The Glorious One. This distraction proved costly, as Rusev caught The Viper flush with a kick to the jaw and secured the major pinfall over the United States Champion.

After being approached by Mahal in the backstage area after the match, Rusev declared that his victory over Orton granted him entry into the United States Title Match at WrestleMania, a notion SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan agreed with, officially making it a Fatal 4-Way for the United States Championship at WrestleMania 34 later in the evening.

The animosity grew between Randy Orton, Bobby Roode and Jinder Mahal

With the WrestleMania 34 Triple Threat Match for the United States Title now official, Jinder Mahal arrived on SmackDown LIVE with the mission of degrading his opponents, Bobby Roode and United States Champion Randy Orton.

Naturally, this brought out both Roode and Orton, who were determined to bring The Modern Day Maharaja’s arrogance down a peg or two. Mahal took great offense to Orton’s comments and appeared as though he was going to lash out at The Apex Predator. Instead, Jinder threw Sunil Singh into Orton and slid out of the ring. Sunil tried to get away, but Orton dragged the faithful follower back and delivered a DDT off the ropes, and Roode dropped Singh with a Glorious DDT for his troubles.

The Glorious One then followed up by attempting a Glorious DDT on The Viper, only for Orton to reverse and try to strike with an RKO. Roode was also able to counter and stop the attack, leaving the two to stare one another down while Mahal just watched on from ringside.

Tensions continued to rise between Randy Orton, Bobby Roode and Jinder Mahal
Randy Orton won the United States Championship for the first time this past Sunday at WWE Fastlane, overcoming Bobby Roode in a highly-contested matchup to become a Grand Slam Champion, though he got more than he bargained for when he suffered surprise attacks from both Jinder Mahal and then Roode after the contest.

The Viper stepped out on SmackDown LIVE to celebrate his victory and congratulate Roode on his hard-fought performance at WWE Fastlane. Before long, however, The Glorious One hit the scene, declaring his intentions to invoke his rematch clause for a United States Title Match at WrestleMania. However, Mahal arrived and claimed he was going to defeat Roode right now, and he wanted Orton to sit at the commentary desk to watch.

Jinder Mahal def. Bobby Roode; Orton RKO’s Mahal
After Bobby Roode dropped The Modern Day Maharaja with a Glorious DDT at WWE Fastlane, and the two engaged in a heated exchange on Team Blue, it was not a surprise to see The Glorious One and Jinder Mahal come out swinging on SmackDown LIVE.

Sunil Singh paid for hopping onto the apron when Roode shoved him into the ring post, but The Modern Day Maharaja capitalized by connecting with the Khallas for the win. The Modern Day Maharaja did not get long to celebrate, though, as Orton slithered into the ring and hit the unsuspecting Mahal with a ruthless RKO outta nowhere.

For now, The Road to WrestleMania remained quite rocky for the United States Title.

Randy Orton def. Bobby Roode to become the new United States Champion
In the leadup to WWE Fastlane, Randy Orton made no bones about why he was challenging Bobby Roode for the United States Championship: It was the one title he’d yet to hold, he wanted to fill out his trophy case, and The Glorious One was just the guy who was unlucky enough to be in his path.

Consider the Grand Slam completed. The Apex Predator slithers into the illustrious club for the first time despite an outstanding effort from Roode, who came into the match with just as much to prove, in his own way, as Orton. The Glorious One traveled a hard road to get to this point and wanted to walk into WrestleMania as U.S. Champion, so he had no desire to cede his prize to a WWE lifer. When the bell rang, Roode opted to prove his bona fides by trying Orton at his own game, chopping away at The Apex Predator with the same kind of quick-strikes and close-quarters combat that Orton used against him.

It seemed to be working, too: Roode’s response to a near-miss RKO was to send Orton scurrying with a Glorious DDT attempt, leaving The Viper to fume and, perhaps, reevaluate his game plan in the face of a tougher fight than he expected. Roode found his best footing in the match when he turned on the jets, peppering Orton with clotheslines, neckbreakers and, in one instance, a top-rope clothesline that were grouped so close together The Viper had no room to breathe. Whenever Orton got going, Roode opted for space, giving himself some much-needed time to recover and strategize.

It was when Roode turned into the aggressor that he played his way right into Orton’s hands. By pursuing The Viper outside the ring, Roode found himself thrown into the barricade and dropped on top of it. His later attempts to go big led to both the showdown’s defining moment — a superplex so textbook that commentator Byron Saxton called for a second instant replay — and its conclusion, when The Glorious One leapt headfirst into the waiting jaws of a match-ending RKO.

That maneuver handed Orton the championship, but the end of the contest only intensified the drama that has swirled over the U.S. Title as of late. Jinder Mahal, who has christened himself the “Uncrowned United States Champion” thanks to his recent wins over both Orton and Roode, confronted the new champion and attacked him mercilessly until Roode dispatched him with a Glorious DDT. Roode then administered the same maneuver to a beaten Orton as well before leaving in frustration. So Mahal makes his presence known. Roode gets the last word in defeat. And having worked 16 years for this particular prize, Orton may yet find that he’s hit his Grand Slam into a very crowded field.

Jinder Mahal def. Randy Orton
With his first-ever clash against Randy Orton occurring at WWE Fastlane on Sunday, United States Champion Bobby Roode took his seat at ringside to scout The Viper from the announce desk. In Orton’s way, however, was the man who caused the initial rift between The Apex Predator and The Glorious One and the Superstar who thought he was being deprived of the United States Title opportunity this Sunday, Jinder Mahal.

The Viper and The Modern Day Maharaja rekindled their rivalry with a hard-hitting contest. Roode unwillingly became involved in the bout when Orton hurled Mahal right into the United States Champion at the announce table, knocking him to the floor.

Back in the ring moments later, Orton looked ready to strike and finish off The Modern Day Maharaja with an RKO, but an angry Roode hopped onto the ring apron to take issue with Orton, allowing Mahal to shove The Viper into Roode before finishing him off with a ring-shaking Khallas for a statement win.

Jinder Mahal delivers a “Roode Awakening;” Randy to Challenge Bobby Roode for U.S. Title at WWE Fastlane
With the animosity between Jinder Mahal, United States Champion Bobby Roode and Randy Orton continuing to build, Mahal (flanked by Sunil Singh) arrived on SmackDown LIVE with a copy of what he claimed to be Roode’s SmackDown LIVE Top 10 Superstars List ballot. The Modern Day Maharaja declared that Roode voted for himself at number one and had neither Mahal nor Orton on it. Mahal used this piece of information to try and drive the wedge further between The Glorious One and The Viper, claiming that it’s clear that Roode has no respect for The Apex Predator.

Not thrilled with these assertions, the United States Champion interrupted, suggesting that he saw through Mahal’s plan to pit him and Orton against each other simply as a means for Jinder to carve out an easier path to the United States Title. This led to a heated exchange between Roode and Mahal that Orton soon broke up with his arrival.

Without saying a word, The Viper stepped to Roode, and a brawl soon erupted. Orton punched Mahal, which Roode followed up by clotheslining Mahal over the top rope. The Apex Predator then went to RKO The Glorious One, but Roode turned it around into a Glorious DDT. The United States Champion stood tall, but only for a moment, as The Modern Day Maharaja slid back into the ring and dropped Roode with the ring-shaking Khallas.

For the second straight week, Mahal left his foes down. If Roode and Orton weren’t taking notice before, they surely are now. However, Mahal may not exactly have SmackDown LIVE management taking notice, or at least Shane McMahon, as after this dominant display, Shane decreed that it would be Roode vs. Orton for the U.S. Title at WWE Fastlane, overruling Daniel Bryan’s idea to give The Modern Day Maharaja a championship opportunity.

Chaos ensued as both Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal attempted to answer Bobby Roode’s United States Open Challenge
United States Champion Bobby Roode looked to continue a long-standing tradition by holding a United States Open Challenge tonight on SmackDown LIVE, but he got a little more than he bargained for.

Still peeved over being struck with an RKO (outta nowhere) last week, Roode made it clear that this was an open challenge, but he had one specific Superstar in mind. The Glorious One seemed to get his wish when Randy Orton arrived, but right as The Viper entered the ring, Jinder Mahal interrupted to berate Orton over his placement on the first-ever SmackDown Top 10 List, suggesting that his spot at No. 9 was embarrassing and that his career has peaked.

The Apex Predator seemed indifferent to his placement on the list, but the one thing he did care about was Roode’s comment that The Glorious One didn’t like his tendency to attack Superstars out of nowhere, specifically referencing the RKO he felt last week. Orton did not take kindly to this, swiftly RKOing Sunil Singh and kicking off a melee between all three. Roode landed a wicked haymaker on Orton, but that left him open to receiving a ring-rattling Khallas from Mahal, who took down the staggered Viper with the same move to stand tall.

United States Champion Bobby Roode def. Rusev; Randy Orton RKOs Roode, English, and Rusev Out of Nowhere

After his huge Fatal-4 Way Match victory last week earned him a title opportunity, Rusev took on United States Champion Bobby Roode for the star-spangled title on SmackDown LIVE.

The Glorious One (who ranked No. 5 on the brand-new SmackDown LIVE Top 10 list) and The Bulgarian Brute battled it out in a competitive contest that saw momentum swing back and forth like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson dangling from the top of a building in the new “Skyscraper” trailer. Roode sullied Rusev Day when he deftly escaped the Accolade just before The Bulgarian Brute could get it synched in and immediately connected with the Glorious DDT for the win.

However, the story wasn’t over there. As Roode began to celebrate after the match, he was met swiftly with an RKO out of nowhere from Randy Orton. The Viper then preyed on Aiden English and Rusev, putting them down with ring-rattling RKOs as well. The Apex Predator’s motives were unknown, but undeniably effective.

Randy Orton is the 24th Entrant of the Royal Rumble; Shinsuke Nakamura won the 2018 Men’s Royal Rumble Match

The day after WrestleMania 33, Shinsuke Nakamura debuted as a SmackDown Superstar. The day after WrestleMania 34, he may well walk out as WWE Champion.

The King of Strong Style outlasted 29 other Superstars to win the Men’s Royal Rumble Match, earning a World Title opportunity of his choosing at WrestleMania. And he already knows who he’s going to challenge.

Entering at No. 14, The Artist’s first moments in the match were scored by the WWE Universe serenading him with his theme song. He notched an elimination early on by tossing Sami Zayn, who stole Tye Dillinger’s No. 10 position after Zayn and Kevin Owens — still smarting over their WWE Title loss to AJ Styles earlier in the night — jumped The Perfect 10 backstage. For the majority of his 44:38 in the contest, WWE’s RockStar played it safe, avoiding elimination while the typical Rumble shenanigans raged around him.

And true to form, there were some epic shenanigans afoot. Heath Slater, entering at No. 5, was clotheslined during his entrance by Baron Corbin and was then jumped by every Superstar on their way to the ring. Sheamus finally threw him into the ring to pick the bones, only to be eliminated himself by The One-Man Band.

Elsewhere, Kofi Kingston was saved from elimination by his eliminated New Day compatriots, who broke Kingston’s fall with their own bodies (Xavier Woods) and a plate of pancakes (Big E). “Woken” Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt joined forces to eliminate overwhelming sentimental favorite Rusev, only to eliminate each other moments later as their heated rivalry continued.

Surprise entrants included Rey Mysterio, who entered at No. 27 looking better than he did when he won the Rumble in 2006. The Hurricane entered at No. 21, but was quickly tossed by John Cena. (What’s up with that?!) NXT fielded two entrants, reigning NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas and Undisputed ERA ringleader Adam Cole (BAY-BAY).

In the end, the bout came down to a battle of generations, with Nakamura, Reigns and iron man Finn Bálor against Cena, Randy Orton and Mysterio. Once again, Nakamura played defense, making himself scarce as Reigns eliminated Orton while Mysterio was tossed by Bálor after executing a double-619 to Reigns and Cena. Bálor was next out, sent packing by a somber-looking Cena, and Nakamura struck soon thereafter, sending the 16-time World Champion tumbling after a Kinshasa through the ropes.

With Reigns now the only thing standing between him and WrestleMania glory, Nakamura came alive, daring The Big Dog to fight before bombarding him with a savage array of knees and elbows. Nakamura flirted with disaster, locking Reigns in an armbar over the top rope. Meanwhile Reigns, returning to the site of his own Rumble Match win in 2015, played it far more conservatively, looking to flatten Nakamura with power maneuvers before tossing him over.

Reigns seemed to have the match in hand, for all intents and purposes, after launching himself into a Spear that pulverized The Artist, but Nakamura answered by cutting off a second Spear with the Kinshasa. Nakamura tossed a dazed Reigns moments later to earn his first Royal Rumble Match victory.

In a post-match interview, Nakamura — who had the right to choose which title he would pursue — made it clear who he wanted: WWE Champion AJ Styles. The dream match is set, and The Artist has truly arrived, but his true masterpiece may be yet to come.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin ended in a no-contest after Randy Orton made his presence felt

After a frosty altercation earlier in the night, The Lone Wolf and WWE’s Rockstar sought to settle the score in a high-stakes bout on SmackDown LIVE, just five days before each man looks to conquer the 30-man field in the Royal Rumble Match.

Even with the grueling Royal Rumble Match less than a week away, Corbin and Nakamura did not hold back when it came to hitting hard.

However, who would’ve come out on top will remain a mystery, as Randy Orton hit the scene to deliver some nasty RKOs on both Superstars, outta nowhere of course. What spurred The Viper’s actions? Was it a simple “friendly” reminder that it’s every man for himself this Sunday in the stacked Royal Rumble Match?

AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura & Randy Orton def. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn

In the complete inverse of what WWE Champion AJ Styles will have to face at the Royal Rumble event, The Phenomenal One teamed up with Shinsuke Nakamaura & Randy Orton to take on the undermanned Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn in the main event of SmackDown LIVE.

The “Yep!” Movement did their best to keep it competitive in the early goings, but then finally chose to walk off and take the count-out loss. However, Shane McMahon refused to see the match conclude in such anti-climactic fashion and came out to announce that the bout would now be no count-out. Shane-O-Mac had to pop in again when KO & Sami tried to get themselves disqualified after Owens assaulted his opponents with a steel chair, leading Shane-O-Mac to declare that this was now also a No Disqualification Match.

Styles retaliated by pelting KO with a chair in an attack that led both men to the backstage area. From there, Sami was left to tangle with Orton and Nakamura all by his lonesome, and he soon became the recipient of a steel steps attack and was driven into the announcer’s table. That all led to the reeling Zayn eating both a Kinshasa and an RKO for a crushing, albeit controversial, loss.

AJ Styles, Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura def. Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn
In a star-studded main event, WWE Champion AJ Styles teamed with Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura to take on Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, with The Singh Brothers lurking at ringside in a thrilling rematch from Tribute to the Troops.

With wounds still cutting deep in the aftermath of WWE Clash of Champions, all six Superstars came in with tempers boiling and ready to pop off with punches. The integrity of the barnburner contest was compromised when The Singh Brothers tried to get involved even after they had been ejected from ringside. The Singhs got a double DDT from Orton for their efforts (just after The Modern Day Maharaja ate an RKO from The Viper), Owens felt the effects of a Phenomenal Forearm from Styles (with Orton adding to The Phenomenal One’s mid-air momentum with a shove) and Zayn was felled by a bone-crushing Kinshasa from The King of Strong Style, who scored the 1-2-3 to give his squad the main event W.

Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn def. Shinsuke Nakamura & Randy Orton
Yes, Owens & Zayn prevailed in a match where their WWE careers were on the line, but the bout didn’t come down so much to their opponents — Shinsuke Nakamura & Randy Orton — as it did to an explosive disagreement between match’s the two Special Guest Referees, SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon and General Manager Daniel Bryan.

Shinsuke Nakamura brings a hard-hitting offense against Kevin Owens: WWE Clash of Champions 2017 (WWE Network Exclusive)01:34
Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura fight tooth-and-nail against Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, as SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan serve as Special Guest Referees: Courtesy of the award-winning WWE Network.

Some history: Shane had been a vocal proponent of firing Zayn & Owens ever since they cost Team SmackDown the deciding match at Survivor Series, which led him to put their careers at stake and declare himself the match’s guest ref. As Owens warned that Shane was planning to screw him out of victory, Bryan named himself the second referee in a bid to protect the “integrity” of SmackDown LIVE. That potential difference of philosophy came to the forefront almost instantly, when some early friction between the two refs led Bryan to draw an imaginary line in the sand, with him and Shane each claiming a territory in the ring to officiate.

It should be mentioned that Owens & Zayn mounted a pretty solid game plan against The Viper and The King of Strong Style, but their animosity toward the refs provided their opponents ample opportunity to take advantage. Nakamura unleashed a blistering torrent of knees onto KO, but it was a triangle from The King of Strong Style that brought the refs back into each other’s orbit when Bryan counted Nakamura’s shoulders in a pinfall attempt, much to Shane’s chagrin.

All the officiating in the world, however, couldn’t stop the wild brawl outside the ring, which concluded with Owens splashing The King of Strong Style through one of the ringside announce tables. With Nakamura dispatched, Orton planted Zayn with an RKO, and an ecstatic Shane went to make the pinfall, but Owens bum-rushed Bryan on top of Shane as he made the count. Orton and Shane surrounded an apologetic Bryan as Zayn struck, instigating a series of back-and-forth rollups that ended with Sami seemingly holding Orton down successfully … only McMahon outright refused to count to three.

With Owens’ fears validated and Bryan red-faced with rage, the two figureheads of SmackDown LIVE went nose-to-nose and appeared inches away from coming to blows (Bryan audibly called Shane “a disgrace”) before Shane threw up his hands and turned his back. Unfortunately for him, Zayn picked that exact moment to attempt another rollup on Orton, and Bryan notched a lightning-fast three-count (in Shane’s territory, for what it’s worth) that saved two jobs. What happens to Bryan’s own job, ironically, is now very much in question, but Shane probably should have seen this coming: Daniel Bryan has never been one to back down from a McMahon.

WWE Champion AJ Styles, Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura def. Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn & Jinder Mahal
At WWE Clash of Champions, Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura will team up to battle Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn – with SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon and General Manager Daniel Bryan as Special Guest Referees. If Owens and Zayn lose, they will be fired from WWE. Also at WWE Clash of Champions, WWE Champion AJ Styles will defend his title against Jinder Mahal – thus making this Six-Man Tag Team Match at TV’s most heartwarming and patriotic show of the year an absolute must-watch.

With momentum for WWE Clash of Champions at stake, both trios were ready for a fight, with Owens struggling to gain an early advantage against The Viper. Throughout the contest, the teamwork of Nakamura, Orton and Styles proved to be the deciding factor, as the team of Mahal, Zayn and Owens had to rely on The Singh Brothers to turn the tide.

However, the advantage was short-lived, as Styles came into the fray and unleashed a relentless offense on KO. As the contest swung back and forth, chaos soon broke loose as all the participants brawled all over the ring, leading to a Phenomenal Forearm on Owens, an RKO to Mahal and Nakamura delivering a stinging Kinshasa to Zayn for the win.

Kevin Owens w/ Sami Zayn def. Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Randy Orton
In SmackDown LIVE’s turbulent main event, Shinsuke Nakamura went to battle against Kevin Owens with their respective WWE Clash of Champions tag team partners Randy Orton and Sami Zayn in their corners and General Manager Daniel Bryan joining the SmackDown LIVE announcement team.

When Owens inadvertently knocked the referee to the canvas with a wild right hand, Bryan donned the stripes and jumped into the action as his impromptu replacement. A few wild moments later, when Nakamura turned his attention toward an interfering Zayn on the apron and knocked him to the floor below, Owens capitalized on the distraction by executing the bone-jarring Pop-up Powerbomb on The Artist. Bryan then counted Nakamura’s shoulders to the canvas to give KO a monumental victory.

What do Bryan’s actions reveal about how he will carry himself as the second Special Guest Referee at WWE Clash of Champions? And will Bryan be able to co-exist with SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon, who will also be wearing the stripes?
