Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Randy Orton and Shane McMahon In-Ring Segment:
Welcome to the Kevin & Sami Show. It’s actually the Sami & Kevin show according to Zayn. When you’re as great an athlete, you never stop learning. However, when you’re part of a McMahon family vendetta, they’ll stop at nothing to get their pound of flesh. Just ask Daniel Bryan, Bret Hart and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Owens and Zayn collectively are better than the men they just mentioned.
They’re the latest victims of the McMahon family wrath. That’s why Shane McMahon, who had the best interests of the WWE at heart tried to use his vessel of destruction Randy Orton to finish him off. Shane is alot like his sister because she also had Orton doing her dirty work. Orton has gotten everything handed to him on a silver platter while Owens and Zayn had to fight for everything they’ve earned on SmackDown Live.
Shane cannot get over the fact that they humiliated him at Hell in a Cell. Shane dropped the ball at Survivor Series. While listening to Shane’s same old song and dance, Owens had to beat up Orton so bad to send a message. It’s not hard to outsmart a man so blinded by his shortcomings. Zayn pointed out the fact that he wasn’t at ringside last week. Zayn is in the ring, check. Now he’s out of the ring, double check. You’ll see a terrible announce team, triple check. You also get an up close look at the WWE Universe, and to be honest, it’s not the most pleasant sight in the world. You’re only booing because you know it’s true.
Zayn laid out Orton with a steel chair on the stage. You can call that heinous or vicious, but you cannot say it happened at ringside. Shane needs to better craft his words. He tried to get Owens and Zayn to conform to the system and they won in spite of him. Orton drops Owens with the RKO.
Shane McMahon appears on the stage. Shane thanks Zayn for the tutorial, but that’s not why he’s out here. Owens and Zayn subscribes to the narrative that Shane has a personal vendetta against them. That’s not true. Owens & Zayn will be taking on Randy Orton and an partner of his choosing at the Clash of Champions PPV. Tonight, Zayn will face Randy Orton.
