WWE SummerSlam 2019: 5 things the company did right at the PPV
- There were some things that needed to happen at the Biggest Party of the Summer. One stole the show.
#4 Kevin Owens wins
The only logical finish to this match was Owens coming out victorious. The method by which he won didn't necessarily matter just as long as Shane McMahon did not get another win over another top WWE Superstar. Although McMahon tried to stack the deck by having Elias be the guest enforcer, it didn't work out.
As the real referee's back was turned, Owens hit Shane with a low blow that eventually led to KO getting the pin. While it gives McMahon a reason to whine about how he lost, Owens had to win.
The uneven part of the whole thing was that nothing was at stake for Shane. Had it been something that went both ways, the match would have been more exciting, as would have every pin attempt. Owens winning was the right call because if you didn't see it, a fan had an "If Shane wins, we riot" sign. It's been getting that bad.Published 14 Aug 2019, 11:10 IST
