Shane McMahon In-Ring Promo:
— WWE (@WWE) September 20, 2017
The WWE Universe witnessed a cowardly act by Kevin Owens. One thing is for sure. Shane gives his father credit for being a salty SOB. They haven’t always seen eye to eye, but at the end of the day, Vince is his father and he loves him. Imagine if you were at home last week with your children and you watched someone you loved get beat down by a coward.
How would that make you feel? As always, TheMcMahon’s fight back with vengeance when attacked. Owens doesn’t realize what he has done, or maybe he has. Shane’s in the middle of the ring and so far Owens is a no show. Not only did he beat down the Chairman and CEO of the WWE, he beat down the patriarch of his family. Shane promises to give Owens a lethal beat down at Hell in a Cell.

Jinder Mahal In-Ring Promo:
It’s hard to believe, but some members in the WWE Universe were in an uproar over what he said about Nakamura. Nakamura didn’t like it either, but apparently his face is full of delight. Nakamura is alway angry. We see a picture of Nakamura’s angry face on the titantron. The jingoistic’s believe that the people of Japan feast on feline and dine on dolphin. Your prejudice is all that Shinsuke Nakamura has to look forward to.
The WWE Universe will turn on Nakamura just like him. Nakamura is an artist. After Jinder beats Nakamura at Hell in a Cell, this will be his defeated face. The people chant Nakamura’s name and sings along with his entrance music, but it hides their xenophobia. Behind your back, they are saying you get your hair cut by a dog groomer. They call you Mr. Miyagi. That’s too far? Jinder will make Nakamura bow down to the Maharaja at Hell in a Cell.
