Daniel Bryan intervenes before Shane McMahon can fire Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
Disgusted with Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn for interfering during the Men’s Traditional Survivor Series Match this past Sunday, SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon called the troublesome duo to the ring to address their controversial actions. Owens & Zayn heeded his call, hitting the scene and doubling down on their actions, claiming they would’ve brought home victory for Team Blue had they been given a more prominent role this past Sunday. With KO & Zayn clearly showing no remorse, it seemed Shane was gearing up to channel his father and passionately fire the duo, but Daniel Bryan arrived to offer an alternate suggestion.
The Team Blue General Manager informed the WWE Universe that he had to send Randy Orton home tonight because The Viper claimed he couldn’t be held responsible for his actions when he encountered Owens and Zayn. Bryan stated that Orton wasn’t alone, and virtually the entire SmackDown LIVE roster felt the same way. Thus, tonight, Owens & Zayn would take on The New Day … in a Lumberjack Match!
