By Richard Trionfo on 2019-07-23 21:59:00

We start off with a look at the issues between Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon over the last few weeks.

We are in Miami, Florida and your announcers are David Otunga and Tom Phillips.

Xavier Woods and Big E join David and Tom on commentary.

Shane McMahon makes his way to the ring.

Shane wants to address the Raw Reunion and how amazing the show was.  We paid homage to superstars of the past and the present.  There was one face that he was happy not to have seen was Kevin Owens.  Where was Kevin?  He was hiding behind social media.  Kevin has challenged him to a match at SummerSlam.  It is the biggest party of the Summer and it would not be complete without the Best in the World competing in it.  Shane says he accepts Kevin's challenge.

Shane says there were a few things that Kevin said.  He said if he does not win the match, Kevin will quit.  Shane says Kevin said those same words before.  He said it a year ago from the same building where SummerSlam will happen.  We go to the footage.  Shane vows to beat Kevin at SummerSlam.

Kevin Owens' music plays and he makes his way to the stage.

Kevin says he has said a few things about Shane over the last few weeks.  He says that Shane proved he is smart.  That video was the lowest point of his career.  That was the version of Kevin Owens who was broken down and didn't want to ruffle any feathers.  That is not the Kevin Owens that he is today.  Kevin says the lights don't get much brighter than this year's SummerSlam in Toronto.  Kevin says he is not going to quit.  The reason is that he will beat the living hell out of Shane.

Kevin asks Shane if he is talking too much.  Maybe they don't have to wait until SummerSlam and he can beat the hell out of Shane right now.

Shane tells Kevin not to do anything or he loses his match.  Shane says he sees Kevin is fired up and he should fight tonight.  How about Kevin faces Roman Reigns.

Shinsuke Nakamura walks in the back as we go to commercial.

We are back and Shane's buddies greet him in the back.  Elias tells Shane when he thought had proved himself as a great leader, Shane outdid himself.  Elias says the match between Roman and Kevin is brilliant.  

Shane says this match needs something special.  To make sure nothing happens, we need a guest referee.  That is going to be Drew McIntyre.  Elias is the guest time keeper.  Shane will be the guest ring announcer.

Mandy Rose comes up behind Sonya.  Mandy says she has been taking care of business.  Mandy says that she was talking to Shane about what the Iiconics said about Shane.  Mandy says they have a match next week.  Sonya asks if it is a title match but Mandy says it is not, but if they win, they will deserve one.

The Miz walks in the back as we go to commercial.

We are back and Ali says he has to rewrite the story.  He needs to put the pen back in his hand.  It won't be the sob story of a guy who chased his dream for 17 years to get a title match.  For him to get injured and replaced and then forgotten.  That injury cost him everything, but he won't let that be his story.  Ali says he has the pen in his hand and he will put the pen to paper and it will say Ali is the WWE Champion.  No one is writing his story but him.  If that pen runs out of ink, he will use his blood to finish that story.  Ali says he will write his story.

Miz is in the ring.  

Miz mentions that Miz and Mrs returns tonight and we take a look back at the Raw Reunion.

Miz brings out his guest and Marine 6 co-star, Shawn Michaels.

Miz says he loved interacting with the legends while some felt it took away opportunities.  Shawn says he was in both places.  He was younger and wanted the legends to get out of there for the young talent to show what they can do.  Shawn says Austin said it when he said they are all family.  Miz sys everyone had a blast last night.  Shawn says they inducted an honorary member into DX and the Kliq.  Miz thanks Shawn for the invite but Shawn says they were co-stars in the Marine 6. 

Shawn says it is cool to see Seth go from NXT to the WWE.  Seth said he is going to face Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam and has every intention of burning it down.

Dolph Ziggler's music plays and he says enough with these so called legends.  He says if he is ever in that position, put him out of his miseries.

Shawn says that Dolph has something to get off his chest so go ahead.

Dolph says he used to idolize Shawn and the emphasis is on USED TO.  You had the chance to go off into the sunset as the greatest performer, but what did you do?  Every chance you had, you shuffled out to wave to the crowd.  It is as embarrassing as the legends last night or Goldberg in a wrestling ring.  Last November when you came back to the ring, you broke his heart.  Dolph says he will say what no one has the guts to say.  You were embarrassing.  

Shawn tells Dolph he won't disagree with Dolph.  He was embarrassed.  What is more embarrassing to him is to work your entire career and still be left with nothing but being known as a second rate Shawn Michaels wannabe.

Dolph says there is only one second rate Shawn Michaels out here and he is looking at him.  It is real fitting that you and Miz are out here.  You will be known for kissing ass while Dolph says he made a career.

Miz tells Dolph to do something already.  He says he is sick of 'it should be me'.  This company is about making things for yourself.  Do something about it.  

Miz, Dolph, and Shawn get ready to do something and Dolph walks away.  Dolph swings at Shawn and punches Miz.  Shawn punches Dolph.  Dolph with a super kick to Shawn.  Miz goes after Dolph but Dolph gets out of the ring before Miz can get to him.

We go to commercial.
