After Shane McMahon instigated a brawl with Kevin Owens earlier in the night, KO threatened to file criminal charges against Shane-O-Mac. With so much in motion, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan called Shane down to the ring.
In a rough spot because of Shane’s actions, Bryan tried to convey to the Commissioner the mess SmackDown LIVE and WWE were in due to him attacking Owens. Clearly contrite and aware of his mistake, Shane indicated he would take the necessary steps to resolve the issue, but Bryan told him that it was too late for that.
The “Yes!” Man revealed that he received a call from Mr. McMahon declaring that, effective immediately, Shane was indefinitely suspended as Team Blue’s Commissioner.
