We've picked out the best of the action from Smackdown in the video above, including the six-pack challenge to become the No 1 contender for the WWE Championship.

Naomi will fight Charlotte for the SmackDow Women's Championship next week.

Shane McMahon appeared on the ramp to announce a match between the two of them.


Also, it is believed that WWE was keen on pushing Jinder as the number one contender for Title because of company's expansion plans in India due to the large fan base in the country and because chances of market growth is high in India. If Charlotte wins, she will get a title shot.

Winning of Mahal will also lead to rising in Bulked-Up Superstars as the wrestler's physique is bulky and by winning the Title, Jinder might set the trend of having the bulky physique which will be followed by other WWE Superstars.

Fantastic opening to the match with all the six superstars going all out with tandem offenses and that had the crowd buzzing.


Could Jinder really win the big one? The champion favoured her left knee after a nasty fall to the outside, but she continued to her aerial offences on Charlotte and the former RAW women's champion was reeling. Naomi came out and said they don't have queens here, they have champions.

While the referee is getting Chad Gable back to the ring apron, Primo attacks Jason Jordan from the apron to help Epico get the pinfall.

Kevin Owens defends the United States Championship against Chris Jericho at Payback, and if he retains, he will have to eventually defend the title against AJ Styles. Since Styles is in the main event against Baron Corbin, Owens is sticking around for commentary.
