WWE Star Returns To SmackDown For The First Time Since July Tonight


As previously written, the WWE World Cup kicks off tonight on Friday Night SmackDown. Among the names locked up is someone who hasn’t had a TV since July.

The names for the tournament: Braun Strowman, Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn, Santos Escobar, Rey Mysterio, Butch, Ricochet and the returning Jinder Mahal.

Mahal was involved in a storyline with Shanky, but the story was scrapped when Vince McMahon resigned as CEO of the company. Mahal and Shanky had wrestled at house shows at the time, but the last time either man wrestled was in July. It seems there are plans to use Mahal on TV again.
