Samantha Irvin announced the return of the former WWE Champion: Jinder Mahal's music plays, and he comes out to the ring. Mahal said they shouldn't be disappointed and reminded us that there were only 50 champions in WWE and he was one of them, and he was at the top of that list. Mahal referenced Iron Sheikh before speaking about social media and misinformation. Mahal spoke in Punjabi and the crowd booed him.
The rock is out The crowd erupted and Rock entered as the crowd chanted his name.
Rock said Mahal was right about one thing: he was not the Iron Sheik. Rock expressed his respect to Shiki before making an impression on him. He said that if the sheikh was there he would wonder who the useless son of a bitch Jabroni was.
Rock said that people didn't like Mahal because he wasn't funny. If it's a rock movie, it's Baywatch. Rock said that Mahal called America a joke, but it was not a joke to him or to these people. Rock did what he did on SmackDown weeks ago, leading each side of the crowd in singing “Day One” and “Do#chebag.” They accepted it out loud. Rock also sang a song about there being no balls in a store.
Rock threatened to kick his ass, so he attacked Rock's shop first. Rock defended himself with fists, a Spinebuster and a People's Elbow
Before leaving, Rock said he was hungry. He asked the San Diego crowd whether he should eat and sit at a booth, at the bar, or “at the head of the table,” causing those in attendance to revolt.
