Kevin Owens took on Randy Orton in a no disqualification match in the main event of this week’s SmackDown.
While that match was set up last week, Shane McMahon tweaked it a bit in the show’s opening segment. Daniel Bryan explained why he didn’t fire Owens and Sami Zayn when Shane expected him to last Tuesday, with Shane adding the no DQ stipulation and attempting to ban Zayn from ringside.
Also on SmackDown, Ruby Riott announced that her group’s name is The Riott Squad before they faced Charlotte Flair, Naomi & Natalya, The Hype Bros finally broke up as Mojo Rawley attacked Zack Ryder after months of dissension, and AJ Styles overcame a pre-match attack to defeat both Singh Brothers.
