The main event of last night’s (June 24, 2017) WWE SmackDown house show in Vancouver was originally scheduled to be Shinsuke Nakamura challenging Jinder Mahal for the WWE championship. However, Mahal cut a promo saying Nakamura couldn’t get into the country before demanding a referee count to 10 and award him the victory.
At seven, current Monday Night Raw star Seth Rollins’ music hit.
He cut a promo of his own saying SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan gave him a call that morning because Nakamura couldn’t work the show and he was here in his place.
Reports from the show say they had a fun match.
Rollins ultimately won by disqualification thanks to interference from the Singh brothers but they sent the crowd home happy:
What a lovely surprise for the fans in Vancouver.
