WWE SmackDown Results – July 30, 2019
Shane McMahon makes an announcement that will ruin a lot of people’s evenings. He will not be a part of Smackdown. He says people are upset and angry that Shane will not be part of the show. There is one person to blame for that and it is Kevin Owens. Kevin has systematically and violently attacked him over the last few weeks. Shane says he is centering himself. His life coach sat him down and told him to get his emotions in check. You get what you want. You get to face Kevin at SummerSlam and that made Shane at peace. At SummerSlam, your career is over and then you will look him in the eye and tell Shane he is the better man and I Quit.
We are in Memphis, Tennessee and your announcers are Corey Graves, Tom Phillips, and Byron Saxton.
Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring.
Kevin says not to panic, but Shane McMahon is not here. We can get through this together. They will stand together and stay strong tonight without Shane. Kevin says he knows Shane is watching. Kevin tells Shane that him not being here is great news because maybe Smackdown can be about the talent and not your stupid face. Kevin tells Shane to bring his stupid face and his entire stupid body to SummerSlam because it is us, one on one. You may be at peace with whatever crap your life coach is telling you, but Kevin says he will not be quitting at SummerSlam because he is going to beat Shane. He will beat Shane so bad that whenever you look in the mirror, you will know that you do not belong in the ring with people like him.
You may keep showing up because there is nothing stopping you from showing up because of your last name. Kevin says he will make sure that Shane knows that this is not your ring and this is not your show. This is the Kevin Owens Show.

We are back and Aleister Black says while he is sitting here, he cannot help but think that he is different. Not in an aesthetic way. He feels different. He talks different. His redemption lies in the blood of his soul. His salvation and benediction comes in the strife of any man to pick a fight with him. Part of that salvation was had by a warrior. How does he move on from here? How does he write these next chapters of his book. Once again, he is in his self imposed prison, in his purgatory.
