Kevin Owens & Shane McMahon In-Ring Segment 

Yesterday was the five year anniversary of when Kevin Owens signed his WWE contract. Over those five years he has created memories that he will never forget. Owens stepped in the ring with people he looked up to. At SummerSlam, Owens stepped in the ring with someone who calls himself the Best in the World. That is as far as reality can be. This years SummerSlam will be a night Owens will never forget for a number of reasons. His family was at ringside and they got to share that experience with him. His family got to be in a sold out arena wanting to see him kick Shane McMahon’s ass. That’s what happened. What Owens will remember most is hitting Shane with The Stunner. Because of you, Owens will remember that moment for the rest of his life. Owens is setting his sights on something else and that’s The King of the Ring Tournament. Owens has been a WWE fan his entire life and King of the Ring was one of the things he loved watching while growing up. He’s looking forward to being in the tournament. Winning will mean as much as winning any title he’s won in the past. Who wouldn’t want their name along side legends like Steve Austin, Kurt Angle, Edge, Bret Hart, Owen Hart, etc.

Shane McMahon comes out to interrupts Kevin Owens. Why? This is quite a moment to celebrate Owens tainted victory and how he’s moving forward to be part of King of the Ring. Shane has some footage to prove his point of what a lowlife Owens is. We see a photo of Owens kicking Shane in the nuts. Is that what you call competition? They were supposed to go toe to toe. Is that what makes Owens a man? If Owens wants to be lectured about being a man, it won’t be by someone who was part of The Mean Street Posse. Being a man is doing what it takes to win when your job is on the line. Being a man is standing up for what you believe in. Being a man is shutting up Shane’s stupid face. Shane calls Owens a lowlife, and will always be known as a cheater. Owens will have to go through his life living like that.

Shane’s upset because Owens should be in an unemployment line. It makes him want to come to the ring to beat the crap out of Owens. Owens has his fighting boots on. Shane’s holding himself back because he doesn’t want to get himself dirty. Owens will be fighting later tonight. We see a video of Owens hitting Elias with a steel chair. Elias is so traumatized that he gave Elias the night off from in-ring competition. The 24/7 Title is suspended tonight. Shane wants Owens to remember he hit Elias with malice while wearing an official WWE Referee Jersey. We have to protect our officials.  In order to ensure that everyone is safe, especially the officials, there are going to be repercussions. In US Dollars, Owens will be fined $100,000. That might be nothing to Shane, but it’s money Owens could use for his kids college funds and a down payment for a house. If Shane’s the man he says he is, he will reconsider this decision because it is crap. The answer is nope.

Daniel Bryan Promo 

There is no question that someone is out to get Roman Reigns, but they had nothing to do with the car accident or the forklift incident. Buddy Murphy is a liar. Bryan doesn’t blame Buddy Murphy. You would have caved and lied if Roman Reigns had your faces pressed against a wall. Murphy had to give a name, but the problem is that Buddy gave the wrong name. Did Bryan do it? That’s what’s wrong with society. Somebody tells a lie and it gets spread on Social Media. Then it becomes the truth. They had nothing to do with these incidents. Tonight, they’re going to prove it.
