Did you like McMahon's time as Commissioner?
Zayn blindsided McMahon, with Owens also jumping in to attack the ex-commissioner of SmackDown Live. McMahon leaving his job will leave Daniel Bryan as the lone authority figure on "Smackdown Live" starting next week. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured.
In some parallel universe, Owens would be the one to turn, but he's just so good as a heel that it would seem unnatural for him to suddenly be chumming it up with the babyfaces in WWE, so if either of the two is going to change their character, the safer bet is definitely Zayn.
Clearly, Zayn and Owens are not on the same page as previously suggested, as the game plan went from Zayn willingly sacrificing himself so Owens could win, to Zayn actively nailing Owens with a Helluva Kick to score the win in this week's Fatal 5-Way. Will Daniel Bryan team up with Shane McMahon to take on the Zayn and Owens?
Shane McMahon announced an indefinite leave of absence as Smackdown Commissioner on this week's episode and was attacked by Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens after booking them in a match against each other at WrestleMania.
But it's finally clear that Owens and Zayn could have a much bigger match at WrestleMania 34, one that could make all the bad that's com along with this rivalry, well, finally worth it.
Alas, Owens and Zayn were booked to be the centerpieces of the entire SmackDown brand for the better part of the year, and the storyline that has overshadowed the rest of the roster finally appears to be on the verge of getting its long overdue climax. However, when he returns, Owens and Zayn are probably in for a serious reprimanding.
Either way, it's about time SmackDown did something with Owens and Zayn to make things interesting for the first time since this rivalry started almost six months ago.
