The tournament marks the return of Jinder Mahal to WWE television, whose last match on WWE television saw him and Shanky lose to the Viking Raiders on July 22.

This will be Mahal’s first match under the new Triple H regime.

The first match of the tournament is set for tonight’s show, with Shinsuke Nakamura taking on Santos Escobar in a match that was announced last week.
