Kevin Owens, frustrated over how his defeat to AJ Styles in the United States Title Match went down last week, interrupted Aiden English mid-song to make it clear that he believed SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon screwed him out of the win (and the championship).
Not willing to stand for that, Shane-O-Mac made his way to the ring to retort Owens and tell him that this was neither the time, nor place, for this discussion. He then asked KO to leave the ring as English’s match against Sami Zayn was occurring next.
An enraged Owens left the ring but remained at ringside and joined the commentary table. In the heat of the action, KO got in the ring and forcefully removed the referee shirt from the official and told him to get lost. Confused, but intimidated, the referee left, prompting Owens to put the striped shirt on himself. This led to Owens interjecting himself into the contest and hitting the Pop-Up Powerbomb onto Zayn, allowing English to pin Zayn with Owens administering a fast three-count.
Owens then called for the bell and told the ring announcer to proclaim The Drama King the winner, then raised English’s hand and disdainfully threw the referee shirt back at the official.
After the match, Shane McMahon declared that Owens' decision was not final and that it would not be reflected in the records book that English defeated Zayn.
