SmackDown: Bobby Roode outclass Jinder Mahal, wins US title

This title win was the company's attempt to elevate Roode, but it wasn't earned. There wasn't enough work done before this to make this moment special.


The month-long SmackDown US title tournament culminated with a glorious win for Bobby Roode. The Modern Day Maharaja had a golden opportunity to become a champion but with the Singh Brothers banned from ringside, it was an evenly contested affair.

While Mahal had his moments but in the final moment of the fight, Roode reversed the Khallas to produce his own Glorious DDT and seal a memorable win.
