Video: Re-cap from last night's Raw
Welcome to WWE Smackdown Live and we kick things off with Smackdown Comissioner Shane McMahon making his way out to the ring.
Shane says last two weeks he's been undergoing some serious physical rehab but is happy to be back in the ring and back in charge. Shane says Survivor Series is fast approaching and is the only time where Smackdown and Raw compete head to head and he learned at an early age it's always best to strike first which is why the Smackdown roster paid a visit to Monday Night Raw
When Kurt Angle called and said they needed an attraction for the Demon Finn Balor, Shane gave them AJ Styles for not one but two nights because they knew what they were going to do and then Angle had the audacity to insult the Smackdown roster. Shane says they caught Raw completely by surprise but they won't be caught by surprise because they're ready. Sami Zayn then makes his way out
Sami says hello to Shane and hopes there's no hard feelings about Hell In A Cell and extends a handshake. Shane says there is hard feelings and when he pulled Owens out of the way that put Shane's health in jeopardy
Sami says if Shane was standing out here as a competitor he'd take him out in a second and leave him hurting worse than at Hell In A Cell but that's for another day. The reason he's out here is to let Shane know that his good buddy Kevin Owens they've mulled it over and decided to be part of Team Smackdown and do what they do every night carry the burden on their shoulder and the rest of the roster can follow. Shane wants them to represent Smackdown and even takes it up a notch saying he needs Zayn and Owens
Shane is a lot of things except a stupid man. But the bottom line is Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens have volunteered their services for Survivor Series. Shane says he doesn't want or need them to represent Smackdown. But since this is the land of opportunity. IF Sami Zayn wants to be on the Survivor Series team all he has to do is beat his opponent and whoever wins will represent Smackdown at Survivor Series. Zayn asks to know who his opponent is and Shane says tonight Sami Zayn goes one on one with The Viper Randy Orton
