Welcome to the WWE SmackDown Results 9 July 2019 (7/9/2019) blog.
- Location- SNHU Arena, Manchester, NH, US
- Time- 8 PM EST(10 July 2019 12 AM GMT/5:30 AM IST)
The Show starts with an ‘earlier tonight’ segment where Dolph Ziggler was giving an interview to Kayla Braxton in the parking lot. Ziggler starts a rant about carrying Owens like he’s carried WWE for the past decade. Owens comes pulling up in a car, honking the horn. They argue and this leads to blows as Owens strikes first. They brawl until Superstars come and break it up. Shane McMahon also appears as they are separated. Shane orders Owens to leave the building.
Shane McMahon is backstage with Sarah Schreiber now. She asks why he canceled the Owens vs. Ziggler match and he talks about how we can’t have that kind of behavior in WWE. Shane says he has other ideas for tonight’s main event and will go work on that now. Shane walks off.
We’re live now and Kevin Owens suddenly appears at ringside with a mic, cutting the announcers off. Owens talks about how he watched the McMahon Family show up weeks ago and promise change, but the only thing that’s happened is Shane getting more power, and no one wanted to see that.
Shane comes walking down the ramp and has Owens’ mic cut as fans boo. Owens calls him an idiot and grabs another mic. Owens continues his rant on various problems that fans always have regarding WWE TV but Shane wants Owens stopped. Once his other mic gets cut off, he grabs commentators headset before leaving through the crowd and a “thank you Owens” chant breaks out. We go back to the announcers and they discuss tonight’s show.
