MILWAUKEE — SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon returned to Team Blue for the first time since WWE Hell in a Cell, one night after taking Raw under siege and leading the SmackDown Superstars on a ransacking of Team Red. Shane-O-Mac would not have too long to bask in the success of the epic raid, however, as he was quickly interrupted by the man who cost him his match against Kevin Owens inside Hell in a Cell: Sami Zayn.
Zayn made it clear that he would take Shane out in “one second” if the Commissioner ever again opted to classify himself as a competitor and volunteered himself and Kevin Owens for the Men’s SmackDown Survivor Series team. The Commissioner, who also promised to one day settle the score with Sami, wanted no part of Sami or Owens on Team SmackDown. With that in mind, however, Shane presented Zayn with a chance to earn his way onto Team SmackDown at Survivor Series. All he would have to do is win his match tonight … against Randy Orton!
