Kevin Owens & Shane McMahon In-Ring Segment:
What’s up Sioux Falls? Shane wants to nip this issue in the bud. Owens won’t be pulling the same actions he did last week. Shane has been patient, but Owens continues to be defiant. Shane wants to make one thing clear. Owens has to stop blaming him for his losses. Shane reminded Kevin Owens and AJ Styles that if they put their hands on him, he was going to respond. Two weeks ago, Owens had his last chance at the US Title . Owens says that he lost that match because Shane dragged Baron Corbin out of the ring. Shane never wanted him on SmackDown Live.
That’s fine with Owens because he would rather be on Raw. Is that because Triple H handed Owens the Universal Title on a silver platter? That’s not how things works here. You have to earn titles on SmackDown Live. Owens only has himself to blame. Shane has to make everything about him. Why do you need to do these things to get the spotlight? Is it because daddy didn’t give you enough attention?
Shane is willing to make his kids dance around the WrestleMania stage. Shane doesn’t want Owens talking about his kids. Are you trying to impress daddy by diving off a cell? Owens says that the McMahon Family would’ve been better off if Shane didn’t survive that helicopter crash, especially his kids. Shane starts brawling with Owens. Shane launches Owens over the announce table. Shane goes into a ground and pound attack. Shane is attacking security guards and referee’s. Daniel Bryan storms to the ringside area to calm Shane down.
