Kevin Owens dropped a massive hint during the opening of SmackDown Live that he and Shane McMahon will be closing Hell In A Cell.
Two weeks ago Kevin Owens crossed a line that he can never come back from. The Prizefighter viciously attacked the 72-year-old Vince McMahon. It began with a headbutt that busted the chairman open and, it ended with McMahon getting helped from the ring by officials and his daughter Stephanie.
What sparked the violent outburst from Owens on McMahon was the boss's announcement that Owens would be stepping inside Hell In A Cell with Shane McMahon at the upcoming SmackDown Live pay-per-view of the same name. Both Shane-O and KO had messages for each other on last week's show, each promising to destroy the other when they step inside the demonic structure in less than two weeks time.
While Owens only appeared via satellite on last week's SmackDown Live, clearly the absence of Shane McMahon from this Tuesday night left him confident enough to show up in person. The former Universal Champion opened the show and midway through his monologue, he was interrupted by Sami Zayn. Zayn tried to convince Owens to back down, but he was having none of it of course. While sounding off to Zayne, Owens revealed something pretty interesting. That he and McMahon would be main eventing Hell In A Cell.
The blockbuster match between McMahon and Owens is certainly one worthy of headlining a special event or even one worthy of appearing on a much bigger card. The question was whether it would be held in higher regard than the WWE Championship match between Jinder Mahal and Shinsuke Nakamura by the company. There has been no talk of the title match happening inside Hell In A Cell, however, so with that in mind it would naturally have to be the Owens vs. McMahon match headlining the event.
The opinion on whether Shane McMahon should even wrestle at all at this point in his career is often very split. What's for certain though is that when the SmackDown Live commissioner steps into the ring, it has always been regarded as a big deal since his return. His matches with The Undertaker and AJ Styles were both high-profile bouts and the upcoming one with Kevin Owens will be no different.
