After Smackdown went off the air last night and continued briefly on WWE Network, Corbin came out and attacked Shinsuke Nakamura. John Cena rushed the ring to make the save and began brawling with Corbin. The action spilled outside which led to Cena putting Corbin through the announce table with an AA. You can watch this below.
