Mr. McMahon announced Tuesday night on Smackdown Live that he is replacing Kofi Kingston with the returning Kevin Owens in the Fastlane match against WWE Champion Daniel Bryan.
Becky is out. Charlotte is in. Well that stinks.
Mr. McMahon will serve as “moderator” in a face-to-face confrontation between WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and challenger AJ Styles tonight on Smackdown Live in advance of their title match at this Sunday’s Royal Rumble event.
After Braun Strowman was stripped of his Universal title shot Monday night on Raw, several superstars initially lined up in front of Mr. McMahon’s door seeking an opportunity to take his place. Later in the night Finn Balor ended up securing that opportunity by winning a fatal four-way match.
Smackdown closed this past Tuesday with Mr. McMahon provoking AJ Styles, leading to AJ striking Vince.
