Shane O’Mac opens SmackDown
Shane says that if you’re going to get into a fight, it’s best to hit first. That’s what he did last night on Monday Night Raw. Kurt Angle insulted the SmackDown roster, and Shane showed Angle that the blue brand is a force to recognize. McMahon says that SmackDown is ready for Survivor Series.
Sami Zayn comes out next. He says to Shane, “no hard feelings about Hell in a Cell, right?”
Shane says there’s “a lot of hard feelings.” Zayn responds that if McMahon was a competitor, he’d take him out in one second and hurt him “worst than when (he) left Hell in a Cell.”
Zayn says that the reason he’s out here is that him and KO volunteer their services to be involved in the Survivor Series Raw vs. SmackDown match. Shane says that he doesn’t want or need Zayn or KO to represent them at Survivor Series. But if they want to be in the match, they’ll need to earn their way into the Survivor Series team. All Zayn will have to do is defeat his opponent. His opponent is “The Viper” Randy Orton.
