After getting into a spat with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn earlier in the evening, Team Blue General Manager Daniel Bryan delivered on his promise to find opponents for KO & Zayn, tabbing the combo of Shinsuke Nakamura & Randy Orton.
The contest brought the WWE Universe to a fever pitch, especially when The Viper sent Zayn plummeting through the announce table in devastating fashion. However, KO and Zayn rebounded when Owens neutralized Nakamura and distracted the official, allowing Zayn the time to drill The Viper with a low blow behind the referee’s back and leading to a perfectly placed Helluva Kick by Zayn for the three-count.
After Owens and Zayn made their way backstage, Bryan attempted to cut their celebration short by informing them that Commissioner Shane McMahon would be returning to SmackDown LIVE next week. And, although that did give the pair pause, it would not derail them from returning to the stage to gloat about their victory and declare themselves best friends yet again.
