Kevin Owens’ mic gets cut off during fiery promo on Shane McMahon

Kevin Owens just said what everyone was already thinking and it was awesome.

Tonight (Jul. 9) SmackDown truly was the Kevin Owens Show. This week’s episode began with KO being booted from the arena following a parking lot brawl with Dolph Ziggler.

As cameras came back to the arena, viewers found Owens hopping the guardrails and hijacking the broadcast. Then Owens cut a passionate promo on Shane McMahon. The promo triggered McMahon to the point of having him kill multiple microphones in a vain attempt to halt Owens’ message.

Loved that KO referenced the moment when the McMahon Family took to the ring and promised changes on WWE television earlier in the year.

So it looks like WWE is giving fans a long look at Kevin Owens playing the role of antihero. Excited?

Update 10:02 PM ET: KO is not done with Shane-O-Mac, not by a long shot.
