SmackDown Recap: Jinder Mahal Earns WWE Title Shot

WWE Payback 2017

Orton will defend his title against Bray Wyatt in a "House of Horrors" before he takes on Jinder for the title at SmackDown-branded Backlash next month.

In only her second week on SmackDown, Charlotte got the opportunity to face off against Naomi in a singles match to earn a shot at the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship. The live telecast will take place on Ten 2 Network at 5.30 AM whereas Taking Smack will follow at 8.30 AM.

In the Smackdown women's division, Naomi will look to get her next challenger, now that Alexa Bliss is gone from Smackdown.

Meanwhile, as the two former world champions are battling for a secondary title, six mid-card wrestlers are fighting to become the new number one contender to Randy Orton and the most prestigious title in the entire WWE. She goes on and says she's been watching Charlotte for a long time. Naomi was perfectly ready to give Charlotte a title shot right there, but Shane McMahon determined that this would simply be a number one contender match.

Something that clearly didn't go down well with the rest of the women's locker room, several members would take their chance to let the Smackdown Commissioner know their feelings.

Yes, we don't believe it happened either but Jinder Mahal, with the help of the Bollywood Boys, has become the #1 contender in a six-pack challenge match also involving Sami Zayn, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, Mojo Rawley and Dolph Ziggler.

Randy Orton came out and congratulated Mahal, but said his prize won't be the WWE Championship, it will just be an RKO. With Owens, the "New Face Of America", on commentary, Styles and Corbin picked up where they left off last week by throwing out all the moves in their arsenal. After the commercial break, Flair walked by the other jealous women again backstage, simply exclaiming "Woooo!" as they frowned.

Charlotte would win the match after hitting Naomi with a Natural Selection.

After being brutally attacked last week, American Alpha is out for payback against Primo & Epico Colon.

In his first-ever Face of America Open Challenge, Owens quickly defeated local talent Gary Gandy, punctuating the end of that match with his signature Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Corbin and Styles fight outside the ring, and Corbin back body drops Styles into Kevin Owens.
