Well, things sure did just get mighty interesting.
Mr. McMahon made his electric return to SmackDown LIVE and called Kevin Owens to the ring. The two then began to break down last week’s brawl between KO and Shane-O-Mac and the pending lawsuit that Owens is threatening. Mr. McMahon made it clear that he would be prepared to fire Owens on the spot and cause him to go bankrupt if KO went through with filing the lawsuit.
Owens, growing increasingly frustrated, was forced to listen to Mr. McMahon declare that he wished Shane had done far worse to KO. The Chairman added that he didn’t suspend Shane for attacking KO, but for not finishing the job. This all led to Mr. McMahon making a Hell in a Cell Match — Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens at WWE Hell in a Cell. KO, now furious, accepted the match, but on one condition: that he be allowed to lay into A McMahon without fear of consequence. Mr. McMahon agreed, the two shook on it and all hell broke loose.
Owens suddenly headbutted Mr. McMahon from point-blank range, busting The Chairman open. Far from done after the shocking strike, KO cold-heartedly assaulted Mr. McMahon with a punch, kicks and a dastardly Frog Splash. Stephanie McMahon then rushed out, first giving Owens a death stare and then checking on her father as he attempted to regain his bearings after the brutal attack.
After this unbelievable moment in Team Blue history, one question rang loud: How would Shane McMahon respond?
