Welcome to Night #2 of the WWE Superstar Shake Up. Welcome to Smackdown Live coming to us this week from Boston, Massachussetts. Last night, Raw gained 9 acquisitions to its roster. Tonight, it is Smackdown's turn up at bat as the Superstar Shake Up continues and we are about to shake things up as Smackdown's first draft moving over from Monday Night Raw is United States Champion Kevin Owens and a clean shaven Kevin Owens at that. Owens makes his way down to the ring
Owens welcomes everyone to the brand new Kevin Owens show and Smackdown just got an upgrade and he brought the United States Championship with him and says it's fitting the United States Championship is held by someone from Canada
But rest assured the title is in good hands and says Canada is better than the United States and has better athletes and the proof is the Montreal Canadiens beating the Boston Bruins
And if anyone has a problem he will beat the hell out of them because he is not here for the fans he is here for himself and is here to be the new face of America
Baron Corbin comes out and says he's sure Owens can beat up anyone in this arena and most of the people in the locker room but can't beat him. Last week, he beat Dean Ambrose so bad he left for Raw and last night Ambrose beat Owens so bad he tucked his tail between his legs and went to Smackdown
Corbin challenges Owens to a championship match and Owens calls him delusional not caring who he beat. Corbin doesn't deserve an opportunity at his title. The third draft moving over from Monday Night Raw makes his way out as The Underdog from The Underground, Sami Zayn comes out.
Owens is in disbelief saying it can't be real. Zayn says he's here to announce he's on Smackdown Live. Corbin tells Zayn no one cares. This brings out The Phenomenal One AJ Styles
The crowd is chanting for AJ Styles and Styles says this is not the Kevin Owens Show. This is Smackdown Live and it's not about The Underdog from The Underground and definitely not about The Lone Wolf. This is about AJ Styles. This is about Smackdown Live. The House That AJ Styles built and he's still here.
Smackdown GM Daniel Bryan comes out and says Kevin Owens' match at Payback still stands and the winner will become a permanent member of Smackdown Live but until after Payback the United States Championship will not be defended. However, tonight one of the three men in the ring will face Kevin Owens fpr the United Ststes Champion as it will be a triple threat match with AJ Styles vs Baron Corbin vs Sami Zayn
