SmackDown Recap: Jinder Mahal Earns WWE Title Shot

WWE Payback 2017

WWE Spoilers: Upcoming Women's Championship Match Announced

With Payback having two SmackDown Superstars competing, Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan need to bide a little time before starting the WWE and United States Championship feuds.

Charlotte counters Naomi's attempt at the Rear View and hits the champion with Natural Selection to pick up the win in her first SmackDown Live match.

Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods are on their way to SmackDown LIVE.

SmackDown Live's #1 contender to the WWE Championship Jinder Mahal says he'll begin using a different nickname after winning the title - The New American Dream.

Flair kicked things off by announcing how upset she was at not being granted a title match against Naomi for her Smackdown Women's Championship since coming to the blue brand last week as part of the Superstar Shake-up.

This match takes place just two weeks after Charlotte was traded from Monday Night Raw to SmackDown Live; she is immediately entering the title picture. The champion favoured her left knee after a nasty fall to the outside, but she continued to her aerial offences on Charlotte and the former RAW women's champion was reeling.

This would draw Smackdown Women's Champion Naomi out to the ring where she would reveal that Smackdown has no Queens. She said they'll have a match now, and she attacked Charlotte.

For those who missed it, Jinder won with help from The Bollywood Boyz.

AJ Styles and Baron Corbin faced off again in the main event of Tuesday's SmackDown Live. 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.
