Jinder Mahal vs. Cesaro w/Shaemus
Mahal and Rusev fight with Mahal getting the better of the exchange. Nobody cared. On the bright side, I like Rusev’s haircut. Cesaro came out, so its appears that its Cesaro and Mahal. Sheamus is at ringside as well. Tie up between the two. Cesaro takes him down. Mahal connects with kicks and punches taking Cesaro down. He covers, but Cesaro kicks out. Cesaro regains the advantage with a brutal elbow. A bit later, Cesaro is able to show his strength catching Mahal in the air and slammin him down with a backbreaker.
Mahal is able to get into control and crickets could be heard churping everywhere (well its not that quiet, but you get nobody cares about Mahal). Cesaro is able to get a suplex and then nail a succession of uppercuts at the turnbuckle.
Cesaro goes on the flurry of offense with nailing the 619 and the crossbody for a close two count. Mahal gets a brief come back, but stares down Rusev, who’s outside. Cesaro is able to connect with a pop up uppercut and gets the three count.
Winner: Cesaro. A Pre-show match, nothing more. Nothing against Mahal, but wwe has never given anyone a reason to care about him and his tag team with Rusev moreso did him (and Rusev) no favors. Everything was clean and crisp, but a nothing match.
