Jinder and the Singh’s come to the ring and get loudly booed. Jinder says that tonight he will team with Rusev tonight to show his in-ring acumen. Mahal says that no-one says what it is like to walk a mile in his shoes. He represents Asia and has been shown nothing but respect. The fans chant “USA”, and Jinder stops and stares disdainfully.

Jinder says he should be revered as WWE Champion. He says he is the best of the best and somebody must pay the price for the disrespect he has been shown. The Singh Brothers say they embarrassed Jinder, and start to apologise but break down crying. It’s great. They apologise to the 1 billion plus people in Asia, as well as their parents, and the Maharaja. They say that Nakamura should never have laid a hand on Mahal last week, and vow that he never will again. They beg to get down and kiss Mal’s feet, to which he agrees. Just before they can lock their lips to his boots however…
