Smackdown Live (7/9/2019): 8 pm EST

Show opens up and Kevin Owens goes off furiously with a pipebomb-style promo. Owens says he remembers when the entire McMahon family came out and said they were going to listen to the fans and give the fans what they want. But all Owens has seen is Shane McMahon getting all the TV time and calling himself “the best in the world” and it makes him sick.

Owens says he’s watched WWE his whole life and it is an absolute disgrace. Every time Shane calls himself that, everyone in the back thinks to themselves that Shane can kiss their ass. It’s an insult to all the workers who strive to become WWE superstars. They’ve deprived the real talents for too long, says Owens. Shane comes out and calls for Owens’ mic to be cut.

It gets cut but Owens grabs another mic and keep going, angrily denigrating the state of WWE. Officials end up running out to stop him and Owens takes off into the audience and away from the set. The commentators say that Owens just committed career suicide. They understand he’s upset but that was not a smart move, they say.

Smackdown Women’s Champ Bayley comes out to face Nikki Cross and sign a contract for the 2-on-1 handicap match which will be for the title at Extreme Rules.

Cross says she’s sick of Bayley trying to drive a wedge between her and Bliss and she’ll see on Sunday when they become co-champions together. Cross tells Bayley to stick around and watch her match with Carmella to see what will happen to her.

New Day comes out to cut a promo but Smackdown Tag Champs Daniel Bryan and Rowan come out to interrupt. They take jabs at each other and Bryan emphasizes how terrible the ‘comedy act’ New Day would be as champions. The only thing worse, Bryan says, would be Heavy Machinery. At this, Heavy Machinery’s music hits and they come out and insinuate themselves into a three-way feud between all the tag teams present. Otis will be joining a match between Xavier Woods and Daniel Bryan, making it a Triple Threat up next.

Then the match gets underway. McIntyre and Elias are constantly finding chances to interfere against Reigns. Reigns looks on his way to victory but McIntyre pulls Ziggler out of the ring. Reigns ends up diving over the top rope out onto them. Shane jumps in the ring but suddenly Kevin Owens shows up and nails Shane with a Stunner. Reigns hits the finish.
