– Possible Hell In A Cell 2017 Main Event
As seen at SummerSlam 2017, “The Modern Day Maharaja” Jinder Mahal pinned the former two time NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura to retain the WWE Championship. However, the match didn’t end without controverises as The Singh Brothers entered the ring and Nakamura was distracted by them.
On this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, Nakamura defeated The Singh Brothers in a 2 on 1 Handicap match and then laid Mahal out with a Kinshasa after the match. Another WWE Championship match between Jinder Mahal & Shinsuke Nakamura is expected to take place at the next SmackDown Live exclusive PPV, Hell In A Cell 2017 (which takes place on October 8 at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan). This WWE Title match will be inside the Hell in a Cell structure, with the storyline being that The Singh Brothers will get eliminated from the equation as they can’t interfere in the match that way.
