Kevin Owens will quit WWE if he can’t beat Shane McMahon at SummerSlam

Knowing his boss plans to “address” his recent actions tonight (July 23) on SmackDown, Kevin Owens decided to preempt whatever Shane McMahon has planned for him with a self-shot promo with an address of his own. And KO is not mincing words when it comes to what he thinks about Shane, and what he’s willing to put on the line for a chance to end him.

“Shane, I know you plan on addressing me on SmackDown LIVE, so I figured I would address you right here, right now. Because I have this overwhelming need to tell you that as a human being - I consider you to be nothing more than a disgusting, rotting piece of garbage.

But I actually think you are even worse than that as a business man. Because we know what’s about to happen. SummerSlam is right around the corner. And before we know it, you’re going to announce yourself in a match at SummerSlam. Well, when you do that, why don’t you put yourself in a match at SummerSlam against me? You know, because SmackDown LIVE has been a one-man show for far too long now and Tuesday nights have become nothing more than a vehicle for you to come out and tell everybody how great you are and to feed your own giant ego, and for you to belittle everyone around you.

And quite frankly, I can’t take it anymore. It makes me sick. It makes me want to throw up, and I just can’t - I just can’t take it anymore.

So, how about this: You take this match at SummerSlam, Shane. And if you beat me? I’ll quit. I’ll leave.”

This is good. And it will be better if Owens baits McMahon into agreeing to quit if he loses, and we get a loser leaves “town” match on Sun., Aug. 11 in Toronto.

Join us tonight in our SmackDown live blog and we’ll see how the Best in the World responds!
