WWE SmackDown Live Preview: October 17, 2017
With Sami Zayn's unexpected embrace of the dark side at Hell in a Cell still looming over SmackDown Live and questions still plaguing the minds of the WWE Universe, the Underdog from the Underground takes to the ring to further explain himself.
But as far as Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode are concerned, the time for talk is over. The Glorious One stole a victory at Hell in a Cell, but will he be able to repeat his exploits when he rematches the Showoff on Tuesday?
And after dispatching Shinsuke Nakamura's challenge, presumably for good, the Modern Day Maharaja addresses his loyal subjects as he looks forward to his role at Survivor Series.
Combing through all of these points and more, here is our preview of this week's episode of SmackDown Live!
#5 What's next for the Maharaja?
Jinder Mahal has been flying high as WWE Champion, retaining his Title multiple times against legitimate contenders like Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura.
But the line of Superstars looking to challenge for the top prize on the Blue brand is endless.
Who then, will emerge as the next number one contender for the WWE Championship when Jinder Mahal announces his plans for Survivor Series?
Is this, finally, time for Kevin Owens to make a tilt at the only singles Title he's never held in the WWE?
Or does Mahal have someone else of Beast-ly proportions in mind?
