Jinder Mahal Reacts to Facing Shinsuke Nakamura at SummerSlam

Jinder Mahal Reacts to Facing Shinsuke Nakamura at SummerSlam

Despite giving it all - including two Attitude Adjustments and one STF - Cena couldn't put Nakamura down, and the Japanese legend ended the match with a knee to Cena's temple and picked up the win.

Finally, there was the WWE Championship match. Both of these WWE superstars were involved in a very intensive fight and at the end of the match, it was AJ Styles who came out as the victor, allowing AJ styles to retain his United States title.

Earlier in the Smackdown Live match, it looked like it was in Cena's favour. In the end, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal got to know his SummerSlam opponent and Styles vs Owens got a special referee for SummerSlam.

After AJ Styles defeated Kevin Owens in controversial fashion for the United States Championship, a rematch was granted. So when Styles rolled Owens up, the referee couldn't see that Owens had his shoulder up, so Owens lost the belt. Cena has never faced Reigns in a singles match. One Bulgarian rant and RKO later, a new match was created. An wonderful match between two of SmackDown's best in-ring competitors ends because the referee was half blinded. Nakamura's charismatic personality and strong style skill set made him an instant hit with fans in the USA and he was promoted to the WWE SmackDown Live roster in April. The two wrestlers, who have each held a world title within the past year, have been feuding over the USA championship since May, with Styles defeating Owens for the belt at a live event at Madison Square Garden in July.

Gov. Rauner calls school-funding special session
But threatened with a veto, the Senate never sent Rauner that legislation, prompting the governor's call for special session. Separately, we can, we can do it this summer or some other time - fix the pension problem in Chicago and around the state.

Solar eclipse less than month away
There's an fantastic event going on in the sky in August of this year, and it's one you're not going to want to miss. Why? Solar eclipses are fairly common - more so than lunar eclipses - occurring about two to four times per year.

Red Sox's Price Going Back On DL With Elbow Inflammation
So far this season he stands 5-3 with a 3.82 earned-run average and 63 strikeouts over 66 innings in 11 starts. Price, 31, will reportedly miss Friday's start against the Royals and be replaced by Brian Johnson.

Naomi and Becky Lynch vs. Natalya and Carmella: A minor Hit for simple tag match that gave the babyface champion a clean win.

Owens said he wants a referee that won't get knocked out by a gust of wind, and Bryan named Shane the referee for the title match at SummerSlam.

If Owens vs. McMahon is still the endgame at some point, then the United States Championship match at SummerSlam will more than likely result in another dusty finish. Have I been zapped into a parallel universe where John Cena isn't awful? While it would have been Cena's opportunity to get his record seventeenth title and turn into the best ever champion by obscuring Ric Flair, who additionally has 16 to his name, for Nakamura it would have been his first-since forever title shot.

SmackDown Live will air from Quicken Loans Arena at 8 p.m. on the USA Network.
