Welcome to SmackDown Live.
We are in San Antonio, Texas and your announcers are Corey Graves, Byron Saxton, and Tom Phillips.
We start off with a look at the explosion of the TitanTron during the Falls Count Anywhere Match. We are told about the reports about what may have happened to Braun Strowman. We will hear from Bobby Lashley.
Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring with his note cards for the Kevin Owens Show.
Kevin welcomes everyone to the Kevin Owens Show. Kevin says his guests will face a team people never thought would be a team, the Big Dog Roman Reigns and the Legend, the Phenom, the Under . . . Taker. Kevin brings out Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon.
Shane demands a proper introduction since Kevin’s was not as good as Shane wanted.
We take a look at what happened when Undertaker appeared during Shane and Drew’s segment on Raw.
Shane says ‘spooky’ and Kevin asks if that is sarcasm and whether Shane is afraid of the Undertaker. Shane says he is not afraid of the Undertaker. Shane says he is on a hot streak. He is too hot. He ran through the Miz and Roman Reigns. Now they are going to run through Roman Reigns again with the Undertaker. Shane tells Drew it is a No Holds Barred match.
Drew says Roman Reigns and the Undertaker stepping into the ring with the Best in the World and the Most Dangerous Superstar in the World. Everybody knows what Drew is capable of in a regular match. Everyone knows what Shane is willing to do in order to win a regular match. Now it is No Holds Barred at Extreme Rules. Drew says this will be a vicious, physical assault like nobody has ever seen before.
Shane says that is spooky and Kevin agrees.
Kevin says there is one part of the footage Kevin wants to see again so he puts it on the TitanTron and it is Shane telling Drew to get out of the ring when Undertaker makes his way to the ring. Kevin says it looks like Shane is a tiny bit afraid of the Undertaker. Kevin says he knows why Shane did that. Kevin says when you hear the gong, it is a gutteral reaction and you end up in the fourth row.
Shane does not appreciate when Kevin is doing and he tells him to do what was written on the cards. Kevin reads a prepared question but Kevin changes things and he asks Shane how did it feel to return in 2016 after 7 years away and lose to the Undertaker.
Drew says the interview is over and Kevin says it is on the card.
Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring and Kevin interrupts and tells Dolph he is not going to talk about how it should have been him. Kevin tells Dolph to get over it.
Dolph says everyone in this arena knows that Dolph should be WWE Champion right now. All of his loyalty and hard work means it should be him. Dolph looks like the type while Kevin looks like he should be in a hot dog eating contest. Kevin says if he was, he would win, which is more than Dolph can say about a wrestling match. Kevin says he wants a title match, just like Dolph. Kevin wants to know who deserves the next title match.
Shane says it is neither of them. Shane says if it will shut you up, then you can be a tag team since teams do not get along. Shane says you can face Heavy Machinery and the winner will be added to the Smackdown Tag Title Match because the match will now be a Triple Threat Match.
Shane and Drew leave the ring while Dolph and Kevin have words for each other.
Kevin wants his music to be played so he can get out of here.
Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan walk in the back and they are asked about Shane’s announcement.
Daniel says his reaction is that Shane McMahon has been making a lot of bad decisions lately but we need to accept them since he is management. Daniel says Shane is making their chances mathematically more difficult. He asks Kayla if she knows math, but they will walk into Extreme Rules as Tag Team Champions and will walk out as Tag Team Champions.
We go to commercial.
