– The first-ever singles match between John Cena and WWE Champion Jinder Mahal took place after Tuesday’s WWE 205 Live went off the air in Richmond, VA.
The dark main event ended when The Singh Brothers attacked Cena for the disqualification. There was no sign of The Great Khali after his return at Battleground on Sunday during the Punjabi Prison match.
As noted, The Singh Brothers were kept off SmackDown to sell the beating they took from Randy Orton on Sunday. Cena will face Shinsuke Nakamura on next week’s SmackDown from Cleveland with the winner going on to face Mahal at SummerSlam.
– According to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio, despite speculation that AJ Styles was not supposed to lose his match against Kevin Owens at WWE Battleground, the correct person ended up winning, however the finish of the match was changed after the match had started. Alvarez noted the finish was changed in the middle of the match and not at the end. It’s not known why the change was made, but the decision was made to have Owens win before the awkward finish, which left AJ Styles looking confused in the ring after the bout.
