Raw star Seth Rollins wrestled for the WWE title on a SmackDown house show last night

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.
