We return and get a new promo for The Bludgeon Brothers, with the two back in the swamp. They say that darkness always prevails over the light, then say their names and smash the camera with their hammers.

We see footage of Jinder Mahal returning to India this past week, along with all of the news outlets that portrayed him. The Singh Brothers come out and introduce the WWE Champion.

Mahal makes his way to the ring while the crowd boos. Mahal says there are many things you get to experience as the Modern Day Maharaja, the first modern day Indian WWE Champion. This past week, he took his WWE Championship to his homeland and was given a true hero’s welcome. Mahal got the royal treatment. On the last day, after dining with Bollywood’s biggest celebrities, a young boy asked him what’s next. Mahal wasn’t sure what he meant. The boy said Mahal beat Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura multiple times, the most worthy on Smackdown Live, yet in America he doesn’t have the same level of respect he does in India. This boy was wise beyond his years. Mahal must make a challenge.

A loud “You can’t wrestle” chant picks up. Mahal reminds them that he’s the WWE Champion. Mahal must be a man they think is unbeatable. Mahal must beat the most dominant force in the WWE. At Survivor Series, he is challenging “The Beast.” At Survivor Series, he is challenging Brock Lesnar! The crowd pops big for that. Mahal wants the people to kiss his feet when he proves The Beast can be slayed. Mahal wants them to bow down to the Modern Day Maharaja. They will realize the greatness that stands before them. Mahal says he is the greatest WWE Champion of all time.

AJ Styles interrupts Jinder and he gets a huge reaction from the Seatlle natives. Styles gets in the ring and asks if he heard Mahal correctly. Mahal says Styles heard it correctly: he is challenging Brock Lesnar. Styles doesn’t care about that. It’s what Mahal said before. Mahal mentioned he beat everyone worthy of beating on Smackdown Live… except AJ Styles.

Mahal says he stands by the fact that there is no-one worthy of his time on SmackDown Live. He says Styles is a loser while he is the WWE Champion. Styles says if he’s a loser, then he won’t have a problem putting the WWE Championship on the line. Mahal says in his country, they don’t think Styles is worthy to stand in the ring with him. Styles says we’re not in his country. Mahal says he’s at the back of the line. The fact that Styles is challenging him is a joke. Styles catches Mahal with a strike combination and takes out The Singh Brothers. Styles then ducks a clothesline and hits him with a Pelé Kick. Mahal retreats while Styles’ music plays.

Aiden English is walking backstage singing to himself. Two guys are looking at something on a cell phone. English asks if they’d be on their phone during a performance of Don Giovanni. If he’s not up to their musical standards, who is? The New Day comes out, and the two guys go nuts. English looks disgusted. Big E says he looks like the Gershwin of Grumpy. Rusev comes up and says The New Day doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is Rusev Day. The New Day says it’s time to celebrate, and Xavier Woods plays Rusev’s theme song on the trombone. Rusev says his day is not a joke. English starts to sing about his day, but Rusev says it’s not the time and the fans laugh.
