Providence, Rhode Island hosted SmackDown’s go-home show for SummerSlam last night.
Jinder Mahal and John Cena faced off in a non-title match, with Baron Corbin interfering and then cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase. The attempt ended up being unsuccessful as Mahal pinned Corbin with a schoolboy after he was briefly distracted by punching Cena off of the apron.
More build to SummerSlam rounded out the episode. Mahal started things off with a celebration of Indian Independence Day before being interrupted by Shinsuke Nakamura, The New Day took on The Usos in a non-title match, and AJ Styles tried to make sure Shane McMahon will call things evenly on Sunday.
