Best of WWE Smackdown

Best of WWE Smackdown

The main event match of tonight's episode of SmackDown Live from Providence, Rhode Island was an impromptu one, as Baron Corbin cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase against Jinder Mahal in an attempt to wrest control of the WWE Championship after Jinder was laid out from an avalanche Attitude Adjustment at the hands of John Cena. Always the pro-American, Cena and Mahal, the anti-American seemed like a flawless pairing.

Not many people expected Baron Corbin to cash-in his Money in the Bank briefcase with only five days left until Summerslam. He joins Damien Sandow as the only wrestlers to unsuccessfully cash-in and lose their match after Mahal rolled him up for a quick three count. I am guessing that since Cena lost clean to Shinsuke Nakamura last week, he's none too happy about being left out of the title picture at Sunday's PPV. Instead of picking up an easy win though, The Lone Wolf got distracted by Cena and it led to Jinder retaining the title.

The night kicked off with sixteen-time World Champion and MA native John Cena defeating Bulgarian born Rusev. He gave the champion an AA off the top rope and went for the cover.

Poe meets LTBRB & Uber reps over suspension order
While no compromise agreement was reached between the parties, Uber expressed willingness to sit down with LTFRB to resolve the matter.

Now, though, things on Sunday between Corbin and Cena just became a little more interesting.

Cena has taken down many foreign heels during his lengthy run as the face of WWE, but few have been as physically imposing as Mahal. With Mahal's henchmen The Singh Brothers gone from being previously thrown out by the referee, Corbin saw his opportunity and knocked out Cena before focusing on the champ.

The bell rang and Corbin was ready to become the WWE Champion right before SummerSlam is set to take place.
