Stunners and McMahons were made for each other

Singles match

Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon

Shane McMahon has been out of control ever since he turned on the Miz five months ago at Fastlane. The prodigal son humiliated the Miz for months, defeated Roman Reigns at Super ShowDown, and has hogged the spotlight while obnoxiously forcing the ring announcers to always introduce him as the Best in the World.

Kevin Owens finally had enough of this circus, and he spoke his mind about Shane on the July 9 episode of SmackDown. Owens let it be known that nobody at home ever asked to see this much Shane on TV, and it was time for that to change.

This began a spree of Owens nailing McMahon with Stone Cold Stunners on SmackDown on a near weekly basis.

He stunned Shane at the end of that episode on July 9:

One week later, Owens ambushed Shane with a stunner as a town hall wrapped up early in the episode:

Owens wasn’t done there; he stunned McMahon during the main event before running away from an army of heels:

This trend continued on the July 23 episode of SmackDown. With an assist from Roman Reigns, KO put Shane down with two stunners as the show went off the air:

Shane O’Mac finally got a measure of revenge on Owens on the Aug. 6 episode of SmackDown. After some godawful kicks, he turned a table over on Owens and smashed a chair into his face.

The big stipulation here is that Kevin Owens must quit WWE if he loses. It won’t be like last year when Owens quit Raw and then returned one week later. If Owens goes down for the count at SummerSlam against Shane McMahon, he’s gone for good. Or at least that’s what WWE wants you to believe.

There are rumors that this storyline between Owens and McMahon will be used to phase Shane out of the storyline. Owens pretty much has to win here for that to even be possible.
