14 WTF Moments From WWE SmackDown Live (April 18)

Bloody Jinder Mahal!?


Even Renee Young looked like she couldn't believe what was happening on this week's SmackDown Live.

Former member of 3MB, ex-partner of Rusev, and all-round enhancement talent for those the WWE creative team cares about, Jinder Mahal became the number one contender to Randy Orton's WWE Title by winning a Six-Pack Challenge.

This wouldn't have happened if SmackDown was still pre-taped! Big Vinnie Mac would have sent those boys out there to do it again, likely reeling in disbelief that his writers had penned such nonsense. We'll say it again: Jinder Mahal will face Randy Orton for the WWE Title at Backlash on May 21.

What in the name of Tiger Ali Singh is going on!?

Seriously though, it's not so bad. At least WWE are rewarding Mahal for his hard work (he's in the best shape of his career) and giving a fresh face some main event minutes, but... but did it have to be him!?

Poor Sami Zayn, this move to Tuesday nights really hasn't worked out. WTF, WTF, and indeed WTF again, we're really at a loss for words. Not that you'd notice..
