Kevin Owens & Shane McMahon Segment 

Shane is joined by his legal team. Shane mentions Owens frivolous lawsuit. Shane has a proposition for Owens.  Shane keeps Owens in court for years and pays millions of dollars in legal fees. It will be appeal after appeal after appeal. Is not good for Owens family. How about Option 2? Owens drops the lawsuit and Shane will reinstate him on the spot and drop the $100,000 fine. It’s clear what the smart choice is. Shane wants to start with a clean slate. Owens refuses to shake Shane’s hand. Owens says that Shane is a real idiot. You don’t get it.

The idea of a lawsuit makes him sick, but the only thing that’s worst is Shane McMahon in the locker room. He doesn’t belong there. It’s not about money. It’s about getting under Shane’s skin and getting what he wants. Owens wants to see Shane’s ass get fired. How about we settle this issues with one more match? If Shane wins, Owens drops the lawsuit and he’ll leave for good. If Owens wins, Shane is gone from WWE. What’s the catch? This situation has been hanging over his head for years. We always hear about climbing the corporate ladder. Why not put the fate over our heads and have a ladder match? Shane accepts.
