WWE SmackDown Results – August 13, 2019
We are in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.
Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring.
Kevin says yesterday was the five year anniversary of when he signed his WWE contract. Over those five years he has created memories that he will never forget. He stepped in the ring with people he looked up to when he got in the ring. Last Sunday night, he stepped in the ring with someone who calls himself the Best in the World. That is as far as reality can be, but it will be a night he will never forget for a number of reasons. Kevin says his family was at ringside and they got to share that experience with him. His family got to be in a sold out arena wanting to see him kick Shane McMahon’s ass. That is what happened. Shane’s ass wasn’t the only thing that he kicked. Kevin says what he will remember most is hitting Shane with that stunner in the middle of the ring. Because of you, he will remember that moment for the rest of his life.
Kevin says he is setting his sights on something else and that is the King of the Ring Tournament. Kevin says he has been a WWE fan his entire life and King of the Ring was one of the things he loved watching while growing up. Kevin says he is looking forward to being in the tournament. Winning will mean as much as winning any title. Who wouldn’t want their name along side legends like Steve Austin, Kurt Angle, Edge, Bret Hart, Owen Hart, and so many more.
Shane McMahon interrupts and Kevin falls to his knees in disgust.
Shane says this is quite a moment to celebrate his tainted victory and how he is moving forward to be part of King of the Ring. Shane says he has some footage to prove his point of what a lowlife Kevin is. We see photos of Kevin kicking Shane in the upper thigh. Is that what you call ‘competition’? We were supposed to go toe to toe. Is that what makes you a man?
Kevin says if he wants to be lectured about being a man, it won’t be by someone who was part of the Mean Street Posse. Kevin says being a man is doing what it takes to win when your job is on the line. Being a man is standing up for what you believe in. Being a man is shutting up your stupid face.
Shane says Kevin is not a man. He says Kevin is a lowlife, and he will always be known as a cheater. You will have to go through your life living like that. Shane says he is upset because you should be in an unemployment line instead of in front of him in the ring. Shane says it makes him want to come to the ring to beat the crap out of Kevin.
Kevin says he has his fighting boots on.
Shane says he is holding himself back because he does not want to get himself dirty. He says Kevin will be fighting later tonight. Shane shows us what Kevin did to Elias on Sunday night.
Shane says Elias is so traumatized he gave Elias the night off and the 24/7 Title is suspended tonight. Shane tells Kevin he wants him to remember he hit Elias with malice while wearing a referee’s jersey. Shane says that we have to protect our officials and you cannot go after an official. In order to ensure that everyone is safe, especially the officials, there are going to be repercussions. In US Dollars, you will be fined One Hundred Thousand.
Kevin says that might be nothing to Shane, but it is his kid’s college and a down payment for a house. If you are the man you say you are, you will reconsider this because it is crap.
Shane tells Kevin nope and leaves.
