Before SmackDown goes live we see highlights from SmackDown with Dolph Ziggler attacking Kofi Kingston.
Kevin Owens comes out and says he was going to kick of SmackDown with a KO show, I don’t want to be here in Oklahoma, people are not worthy of it, I get to beat the hell out of WWE Champion Kofi Kingston because I have to tell you, I want to dish out punishment, I have nothing to do with what happened to Big E last week, I did not attack him because I am a good person, if New Day wants to blame me for what I am responsible, poor little Woodsy, Kofi Kingston fairytale ends at Super Showdown when he loses the title against Dolph Ziggler, and then thank me and I can get a match because it is about Kevin Owens.
Kofi comes out and says stop with the lies, you lied about being a member of the New Day, you are a liar, you are saying you will soften me up for Dolph Ziggler, you won’t soften me up, this is the night you pay even though for attacking Woods, re-injuring knee of Big E, you leave understanding why I am your WWE Champion.
