The culmination of the feud between Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens could result in Owens returning to Raw after their match at Hell In A Cell.
Kevin Owens is an extremely important asset to WWE not only in the eyes of the fans, but also when it comes to the McMahons. The company has been demonstrating that time and time again. Last year, they made Owens the company's first ever long-term Universal Champion, then Vince McMahon himself made an appearance on SmackDown Live to confront Owens in a segment that will go down in history.
That latter occurrence was a key part of the ongoing feud between The Prizefighter and Shane McMahon. Vince came to SmackDown Live to inform Owens that he would have to step inside Hell In A Cell with Shane. It's a match that WWE has been building to for a while now, and it's another sign that the company has tremendous faith in Owens. What happens after the two have settled their differences inside the cell though?
Well apparently, once Shane-O and KO are finished with their feud, the former Universal Champion will make his way back to Monday Night Raw. According to Ringside News Owens has been advertised for the Oct. 16, 2017, edition of Raw, just eight days after Hell In A Cell takes place. With that in mind, it's very possible that whatever Owens does to Shane inside the demonic structure will result in him not being able to stay on Tuesday nights beyond the first SmackDown Live after the pay-per-view.
Kevin Owens only joined SmackDown Live six months ago after playing a pivotal role on Raw prior to that. If Owens does make the move back to the red brand, the dynamic will be very interesting. Following Owens' brutal attack on Vince McMahon a few weeks ago, he crossed paths with Stephanie McMahon on his way back to the locker room. Whether the Raw Commissioner would want Owens back on her brand is up for debate as Steph didn't look too happy with him on that particular evening.

Owens has done a lot on SmackDown Live in the six months he has been a part of the brand. That being said, there's still plenty more for him to do there. For starters, The Prizefighter hasn't won the ultimate prize up for grabs, and that's the WWE Championship. Unlike his match with AJ Styles though, it's unlikely that Shane-O Mac will have any respect for Owens after they do battle this weekend.
