WWE SmackDown Results – December 5, 2017
Welcome to SmackDown Live. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn make their way to the ring and we see the stipulation that Shane McMahon added to the Randy Orton versus Kevin Owens match. Then we see what happened when Kevin’s friend Sami attacked Randy Orton. Kevin welcomes everyone to the Sami and Kevin Show. Sami reminds everyone it is the Kevin and Sami Show.
Kevin says when you are as great an athlete as he is and Sami is one too, you never stop learning. When you are part of a McMahon family vendetta, they will stop at nothing to get their pound of flesh. He says, just ask Daniel Bryan. Sami brings up Bret Hart. Kevin brings up Steve Austin. Sami says you can just ask them.
Kevin says they are better than any of the people they just mentioned, and Sami adds ‘combined’. Kevin says that is why they are the latest victims of the McMahon family wrath. That is why the man who had the best interests of the WWE at heart tried to use his vessel of destruction Randy Orton to finish him off. Sami says that Shane now uses Randy as the person who does his dirty work because Stephanie used him as well.
Kevin says they have had to fight to earn everything in WWE. Shane cannot get over the fact that they humiliated Shane at Hell in a Cell. Shane cannot get over his failure at Survivor Series.
Sami says that Shane’s plan didn’t even work last week. Kevin says he saw Shane’s song and dance and he made it a No Disqualification Match with Sami banned from ringside. Kevin says he had to beat up Randy so bad that he would not be an option for Shane. Kevin says he had to send a message to Shane. He also had to outsmart Shane McMahon. Kevin says it is not hard to outsmart a man so blinded by his shortcomings.
Sami says that even the best deserve a reminder. Sami says that now he is in the ring. Sami rolls to the floor and he says he is outside the ring. Sami says this is ‘ringside’. Ringside, you might see a terrible announce team. You might see the bellman. You get an up close look at the WWE Universe, and tonight it is not the most pleasant sight in the world. Sami says you boo because you know it is true.
Sami starts to go up the ramp and he says when you cross the line, it is something very different altogether. This area is where he laid waste to Randy Orton with a steel chair. You can call that heinous or vicious, but you cannot say it happened at ringside. Shane, you need to watch your words so carefully. You try to get him and Kevin to conform to the system and they conformed to the system and they won.
Randy Orton hits Kevin Owens with an RKO out of nowhere.
Shane McMahon’s music plays and he comes out onto the stage as Sami backs up and moves closer to ringside.
Shane thanks Sami for the tutorial, but that is not why he is out here. He says that Sami and Kevin think he has a vendetta against them and that is not true. Sami will be teaming with Kevin Owens to face the duo of Randy Orton and a partner of Randy’s choosing.
Shane says they need to do something about all of the energy that Sami has. Tonight, Sami will face Randy Orton.
