WWE SmackDown Live Preview: September 12, 2017
Last week's episode of SmackDown Live left the WWE Universe hanging with a plethora of unanswered yet pertinent questions.
What will be the fate of Shane McMahon after being indefinitely suspended following his feral attack on Kevin Owens? Will SmackDown Live become the Kevin Owens Show in his absence?
And most importantly, what will a returning Vince McMahon have to say about it all?
It's easy to be distracted by how this storyline will develop and completely forget about the three title matches that will also be on display.
AJ Styles defends his US Championship against Tye Dillinger, Naomi gets her SmackDown Live Women's Championship rematch against Natalya and the Usos put their Tag Titles on the line against arch nemeses New Day, in a Sin City street fight.
Looking forward to all of these developments and more, here is our preview of this week's episode of SmackDown Live!
The Kevin Owens show
Having suspended Shane McMahon indefinitely, who will Vince McMahon hand over the reins of the Blue Brand to?
Will we see another former Superstar return and fill the void, much like Kurt Angle on Raw, or is this an opportunity for a more contemporary approach?
Kevin Owens has made no bones in hiding his desire to turn SmackDown Live into the Kevin Owens show.
With Vince McMahon also scheduled to appear this week, could this be the best chance for the Prize Fighter to convince the Boss to actually let him have a shot?
For one, we've seen weirder things happen in the WWE in the past.
And Commissioner Kevin Owens has quite a ring to it, doesn't it?
