THE ROYSTER SMACKDOWN REPORT

Jermaine Royster reporting
Smackdown comes to us live from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California. Tonight we start to see things taking shape as the next Smackdown PPV Clash Of Champions is just two weeks away. Last week Sami Zayn did not heed to the words of Smackdown GM Daniel Bryan as he interfered in the Main Event allowing Kevin Owens to pin Randy Orton. Surely Commissioner Shane McMahon will have something to say about this matter. “Glorious” Bobby Roode battles United States Champion Baron Corbin as well as Tamina facing Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. The New Day battle Rusev & Aiden English plus The Bludgeon Brothers and more.
As the show opens we hear the music of Kevin Owens and he makes his way to the ring alongside Sami Zayn to kick off the show. Owens welcomes everyone to the “Kevin & Sami Show”, Owens then starts to run down the McMahon family stating they will keep down everyone they want. Owens says the two of them are the new object in the wrath of the McMahon family, Kevin mentions Shane’s use of Randy Orton to kill his career. Sami says Stephanie McMahon did the same thing when Orton was on Raw, Owens says Shane does this because he cant get the job done himself. Owens says he showed the world that he is not scared of Shane McMahon or Randy Orton. Sami Zayn then says Shane should watch his words because last week they didnt cheat but stayed within the rules because Sami was on the ramp not ringside when he interfered. Then Randy Orton appears and scores with a flash RKO on Kevin Owens in the ring, Shane McMahon then comes to the ring and informs Zayn & Owens they have a tag team match at Clash Of Champions in two weeks. It will be Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn taking on Randy Orton and a partner of his choosing. As for tonight Sami Zayn will face Randy Orton with Kevin Owens handcuffed to the bottom rope.
After the commercial break Sami Zayn informs Kevin Owens of the match stipulations and Zayn calls it inhumane.

Aiden English is in the ring and he sings the “12 Days of Rusv-Day” until he is cut off by Big E.
