Shinsuke Nakamura just saved Randy Orton from a Owens and Zayn beatdown

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are still paying for their Hell in a Cell/Survivor Series sins. Tonight (Dec. 5) in the main event of SmackDown, the deck was again stacked against the Canadian power duo.

This time Zayn was matched up with Randy Orton and instead of simply barring Owens from ringside, KO would have to be handcuffed to the ring ropes during the contest.

Both Zayn and Orton left it all in the ring with Sami on the wrong end of some vicious spots. Outside of the ring was even worse for Zayn as he went over the announce table more than a few times and got rammed repeatedly into the barricade.

Always one step ahead, Zayn would use his rope-a-dope strategy to sneak away and grab some bolt cutters to set his friend free from his Shane McMahon imposed shackles.

Despite Owens getting free, Orton would still pick-up a win over Zayn and the numbers game thanks to a a schoolboy pin that was literally almost out of nowhere. Post-match, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn tried to lay waste to The Viper but were almost immediately interrupted by a wild Shinsuke Nakamura.

Well, Shinsuke Nakamura is Randy Orton’s mystery opponent for Clash of Champions, who do you got Shinsuke and Randy or Kevin and Sami in two weeks on the WWE Network?
