Five days before attempting to tear each other limb from limb in their Hell in a Cell showdown, Shane McMahon came to the ring for a face-to-face with Kevin Owens, and Shane-O-Mac promised his nemesis that he will have hell to pay inside the horrifying structure, also announcing that their match this Sunday would now also be Falls Count Anywhere.
However, rather than meet Shane in the ring, Owens appeared deep in the WWE Universe, making it clear that he blamed Shane for what KO had done to Mr. McMahon and that the beating he unleashed on Shane would be much worse.
Shane eventually chased Owens through the crowd and out into the concession area where KO launched a vicious sneak attack, getting the jump on the SmackDown LIVE Commissioner by attacking him from behind and eventually powerbombing him through a merchandise table. Returning to the ring, Owens began to explain what would happen during his match with Shane on Sunday. And when a war-torn Shane reemerged, Owens again laid into his rival, unleashing a relentless beatdown that culminated with a devastating headbutt and Pop-up Powerbomb.
SmackDown LIVE went off the air in a flurry of chaos, but what will happen Sunday at WWE Hell in a Cell?
