Kevin Owens is Sad for Shane McMahon
Kevin Owens starts off by telling people not to be distressed. He jokes that Shane McMahon isn’t here tonight and they will get through it together and are going to be ok. He pretends to cry and then puts on a poker face, telling him that it’s great news because maybe the talent can actually shine. He starts berating him once again and tells him that he won’t quit at SummerSlam because he won’t lose. He says that Shane will know without a shadow of a doubt that he doesn’t belong in the ring with people like him. It is not Shane’s ring, it is not his show but it is the Kevin Owens Show.
He drops the mic and was about to leave when Drew McIntyre’s music hits. He heads out and tells KO that they have a match tonight. Owens seems to be fine with it but McIntyre takes a cheap shot. He assaults him and sends him over the commentators’ table and says that he better get prepared because that match is now.

Dolph Ziggler meets Kayla Braxton for an interview backstage and gets angry over locker room being angry with him. He reminds how awful the matches from WWE legends had recently, name dropping Goldberg and Shawn Michaels. He also reminds how Rollins lost his focus a bit and got demolished by Brock Lesnar.
