Grabbing the brass ring

I thought that Jinder Mahal concussing Finn Balor on his way to the world title was an aberration, but seeing how Nia bashing Becky's brains in has somehow earned her another monster push, perhaps Samoa Joe should just show up on Smackdown and punch someone in the head?  Couldn't hurt to try at this point.
