WWE Smackdown Results - Sep 26, 2017

WWE Smackdown Opener:

We start off with a look back at what Kevin Owens has done to the McMahon family over the last few weeks.

- Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring. Owens grabs a mic and asks where Shane McMahon is. “I’ve been called a coward for what I did to Vince McMahon. I’ve been called a coward for not being at Smackdown Live last week.” Owens says he is here tonight and standing in the middle of the ring of opportunity. He again asks where Shane is. Owens suggests maybe Shane is the coward. He respects Vince McMahon. Owens says just imagine what he will do to someone he doesn’t.

Here comes Sami Zayn to interrupt. Sami asks Kevin what is wrong with him. He is not out here to fight. He says Kevin has lost complete control. Sami says you head butted Vince McMahon. Sami says he has known Kevin for 15 years and he knows that when Kevin snaps, it does not end well. Sami says that he said 'that's it' when Kevin head butted Vince and thought that Kevin snapped.

Sami says he is trying to talk some sense into Kevin. Sami says that Kevin is going to cross a line he never crossed before. If you cross that line, there is no coming back from it. It is not just your career, but your life and your family. Sami tells Kevin to get a grip.

Kevin tells Sami he didn't snap. Kevin says he is cool. Kevin tells Sami not to worry about his family, he can do that. Kevin says Sami is out here because he has outshined and eclipsed Sami once again. Kevin reminds Sami that he signed two and a half years before Kevin and Kevin has been IC Champion twice. Kevin has been Universal Champion. Kevin says he has been United States Champion. Kevin says that Sami will watch as he main events Hell in a Cell. Kevin says Shane will regret bringing him to Smackdown. Kevin tells Sami to watch Hell in a Cell.

Kevin says the head butt was a mistake, but what has Sami ever done in his life that had more of an impact than Kevin head butting Vince McMahon?

Sami thinks about it and he says Kevin is right. You have done a lot more than him in WWE. You have taken every corner and cheap shot to get where you are. Sami says he is not doing too great, but his day will come and when that day comes, he will do it the right way. You won the Intercontinental Championship and US Title as well as the Universal title, but Sami says he does not see a giant piece of trash looking back at him when he looks in the mirror.

Kevin drops his mic and so does Sami. Before they can exchange any punches, Daniel Bryan's music. Daniel says that Shane is not here and he might not be here. Daniel says he knows someone who is here and wants to fight with you. Kevin Owens will fight Sami Zayn and it will happen tonight.
