WWE Smackdown: Kevin Owens brutalizes Shane McMahon
UPI News Service, 10/04/2017
Unable to wait until Sunday, Kevin Owens viciously assaulted Shane McMahon Tuesday on Smackdown days before their match at Hell in a Cell.
The former Universal Champion confronted the Smackdown commissioner from the audience at the Pepsi Center in Denver after McMahon announced that their upcoming bout would be under falls count anywhere rules, meaning, that either man could claim victory outside the ring via either pinfall or submission.
As McMahon went after Owens who retreated from the live crowd, he found himself inside the concourse of the arena when he was ambushed by his rival. Owens then proceeded to beat down McMahon before powerbombing him through a merchandise table.
"I will powerbomb you again and again until you forget your kids' names," Owens said to Shane McMahon after returning back to the ring. True to his word, Owens then delivered his patent Pop-up Powerbomb to his boss inside the ring after he had returned from the concourse.
Owens and McMahon will attempt to settle their blood feud inside the Hell in a Cell structure on Sunday.
Also on Smackdown, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal kicked off the show to once again attack his Hell in a Cell opponent Shinsuke Nakamura who was in the middle of an interview.
Nakamura was speaking with announcer Renee Young about how Mahal's controversial comments did not hurt him until he was interrupted by Mahal's henchmen, The Singh Brothers. After teasing the appearance of Mahal, the champion then struck The Artist from behind while he was distracted.
Nakamura was able to mount a comeback against Mahal, however, until The Singh Brothers joined in on the attack. Mahal finished things by delivering a devastating Khallas to Nakamura before standing tall with his WWE Championship in hand.
Other moments on Smackdown included Smackdown Women's Champion Natalya and Ms. Money in the Bank Carmella defeating Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch; Bobby Roode defeating Mike Kanellis; The Usos got into a war of words with The New Day; Tye Dillinger defeated Baron Corbin; and Randy Orton defeated Aiden English.
