John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura will fight tonight at SmackDown LIVE, and the winner of this dream match will be the challenger to WWE World Champion Jinder Mahal at SummerSlam. Although many have criticized that this fight takes place on the weekly show and not on a PPV, it will actually mean a spike in SmackDown’s audience levels and what they offer will be just a taste of what they can offer in the future.
Just two days after Kevin Owens won the United States Championship, he again lost it . Immediately after the fight, smoky KO demanded his mandatory rematch with AJ Styles. Thus, it fulfills what Owens prophesied in an interview : ” Unfortunately, it seems that I will have to get back in the ring with him several times more.”
