After a much-maligned episode of Monday Night RAW- Smackdown Live had a lot of expectations on it’s shoulders. With the Kevin Owens Show, the ‘Shane McMahon Appreciation Night’ and many more; we’ll need to see if the Blue Brand can outperform its older brother.

  • Kevin Owens hits the ring and announces that he won’t showcase ‘The Kevin Owens Show’ tonight as the audience don’t deserve it. He states he had nothing to do with Big E getting injured last week and says that Dolph Ziggler will win the WWE Championship at Super Showdown due to Owens destroying Kofi Kingston tonight.
