Shane McMahon is Feeling Optimistic
Commissioner Shane O’Mac has a peep in his step as he comes down to the ring. Despite the outcome of Survivor Series, he’s very proud of the SmackDown roster. The only two people on the roster he wasn’t proud of is…
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn come out next and start talking trash. They say they could have defeated anyone on the Monday Night Raw roster if they were put on the main-card at Survivor Series. They also think McMahon owes them an apology. Shane is about to fire their ass when…
SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan comes out to intervene. Bryan stops Shane from firing the duo of Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. The GM tells Sami Zayn to “shut up” and then announces a Lumberjack match for later tonight, as The New Day will face off against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn (who don’t seem like they appreciate this news).
