On Tuesday, Kevin Owens brutally attacked the returning Vince McMahon, who, during the segment, gave Owens permission to assault any McMahon if provoked.
Owens’ first move on McMahon was to headbutt him, which resulted in the chairman’s forehead getting busted open. Of course, referees and producers came out to stop the former US Champion, but it didn’t matter, as Owens continued to strike McMahon.
His final move to the WWE chairman was to head to the top rope and hit him with a frog splash. Vince was helped to the back following the attack.
