WWE SmackDown Live Results October 3rd 2017, Latest SmackDown winners and video highlights
What's it with WWE and disappointing go-home shows?
The go-home episode for Hell in a Cell opened with the entire roster paying tribute to the Las Vegas shooting tragedy victims.
Being the go-home show, the odds were heavily stacked against WWE to put on a great show. RAW was a snoozefest and NFL returned; WWE had its hands full.
But did they deliver? What happened in the latest chapter in the heated rivalry between Shane O'Mac and Kevin Owens?
Find out below in this week's results and highlights:
Renee Young welcomed the fans in Denver and introduced Jinder Mahal's opponent at Hell in a Cell, Shinsuke Nakamura.
The crowd was hot! Nuclear hot for the King of Strong Style! They chanted for Nakamura until Young had to abruptly interrupt. Good stuff Denver!
Renee asked Nakamura about Mahal's racially sensitive comments, and the Artist just replied by saying, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me".
His promo was cut short by The Singh Brothers, who came out to a new theme song.
The introduced the Modern Day Maharaja, who blindsided a clueless Nakamura who was focused on the ramp. Nakamura initially retaliated with a string of knees but the numbers game got the better of him. The WWE Champion first stunned him with a kick and finished him off with the Khalas.
