Welcome to the Summerslam 2019 fallout edition of Smackdown LIVE.
We open to Kevin Owens to a pop. Kevin Owens recaps his ed. with Summerslam and says that Summerslam was a night he’ll remember for the rest of his life. He was happy to see his family being able to see him hit the Stunner on Shane and win with his family sitting ringside. Owens says his sights are now set on the King of the Ring Tournament and he says that tournament is one of the things he loved growing up as a fan. Winning the tournament would mean just as much as any of the titles he’s already won. He says winning the same tournament the likes that Stone Cold, Edge, Kurt Angle, Bret Hart and Owen Hart won would mean a lot.
Shane McMahon interrupts to heavy boos. Kevin asks why. Shane says his victory at Summerslam was tainted. Shane plays footage of the low blow KO hit on Shane Sunday night. Shane says what Owens did was unbecoming of a man. Owens says he won’t be lectured about what a man is from a guy who used to be in a group called the Mean Street Posse. He says that being a man is doing whatever it takes to win, especially if your job is on the line. Shane calls Owens a low-life, and he says Owens will live the rest of his life as a cheater. Shane says Owens should be on the unemployment line and he feels like walking down the aisle and beating him up. Owens says his fighting boots are on.
Shane says he doesn’t feel like soiling his hands, but he says Owens be in competition tonight and will let him know his opponent later. Shane then rolls footage of what Owens did to Elias at Summerslam. Shane says because of what Owens did, the 24/7 Title is suspended for tonight. Shane says he needs to ensure the officials need to be safe from him. Shane says Owens will be fined $100,000. Owens says he needs to reconsider because it’s about his family and the fine is crap. Shane says nope. Owens retreats to the back.
