Report by Mike Killam for ProWrestling.com
We see footage of last week’s main event street fight between Kevin Owens and Randy Orton, before heading live to the ring where KO and Sami Zayn have set up camp. They took turns putting each other over and talking about how great they each are, before claiming that the entire McMahon family has it out for them. Owens said that the McMahons screwed over Bret Hart, Steve Austin and Daniel Bryan, and last week Shane tried to use “The Viper” to end his career. He makes fun of Orton for being a puppet, since it wasn’t too long ago that he was on Raw doing Stephanie McMahon’s bidding.
Sami Zayn takes the mic and goes on a verbal tyrade against everyone, including the fans at ringside and some of the officials at ringside. He walks up the entrance ramp and points out where they finished off Orton last week with a steel chair. While Sami is laughing and pointing, right on cue “The Viper” came out of nowhere and dropped Kevin Owens with the RKO! As the two starred each other down, Shane McMahon made his way out and announced that it will be Zayn vs. Orton tonight, and his best friend Owens will be handcuffed to the ropes. And as for Clash of Champions, the two of them will team up to face Orton and the partner of his choosing!
THE NEW DAY vs. RUSEV & AIDEN ENGLISH
English drew the short straw and had to start things off against Big E, who threw him around the ring with ease and shook of offense like he was a small child. Kingston tagged in and came off the top with a diving crossbody. Rusev pulled his partner to safety and the New Day taunted them from the ring as Xavier Woods played trombone.
During the commercial break the New Day fooled around a bit too much and got caught out by Rusev. They worked over Kofi for several minutes, keeping him isolated with quick tags and cheap offense any time the referee was distracted. Big E finally managed to get the hot tag and cleaned house, once again tossing around English to show off his power. Rusev made a blind tag that nobody saw and rushed the corner, only to run into a massive spinebuster! The heels escaped to the floor but Kingston had it scouted, diving over the ropes to take them both out. Big E rolled Rusev back into the ring but the “Bulgarian Brute” caught Kofi (the legal man) with a brutal superkick, picking up three.
Winners: Rusev & Aiden English
