The latest episode of WWE's "SmackDown Live" took place at the Thomas & Mack Center in #Las Vegas, Nevada on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017. As the show opened, #kevin owens came to the ring and talked about how he'd change the "SmackDown" show now that he's taking over. Owens said he has one person he needs to talk to, and called out Mr. McMahon. Instead Shane McMahon's music hit. Out came Dolph Ziggler dressed as Shane and mocking his entrance.

Owens laughed over it and said he knew that isn't Shane because Dolph has talent and works there. Dolph went backstage and "SmackDown Live" GM Daniel Bryan came out. He told Owens he isn't running the show and hopes he's having fun because it will all be over soon.

Mr. McMahon returns

Vince McMahon came to the ring to confront Kevin Owens. Kevin asked if he could call him "Vince" and then said he feels the way Vince must feel superstars feel in the ring with him, "intimidated." Vince said he felt nauseated right about now. He talked about how Kevin disparaged the McMahon family name last week and Shane jumped him. Vince said, "big bad Kevin Owens isn't going to fight back, he's just going to try to sue everyone." Vince told Owens that if he files that lawsuit he's going to call his attorney and have him put it on speakerphone so he can say, "Kevin Owens, You're Fired!"

Mr. McMahon told Owens that he's had many lawsuits against him but he hasn't lost one. He told him he has a "B" next to his name for billionaire but when he's done with him he'll have a "B" next to his name for "bankrupt." Vince told Owens that he suspended Shane for "not finishing the job." Mr. McMahon said he's going to reinstate Shane so he can have a match. He said it will be Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon inside Hell in a Cell.

Owens asked for Mr. McMahon to give him permission to beat a McMahon senseless if provoked. Vince offered his word and a handshake. He kept saying things to Owens off mic. Owens eventually headbutted Vince to cause him to drop to the mat. Vince was visibly blooding from his forehead. He waited for Vince to stand up and punched him down again.

Owens eventually hit a Superkick as referees got in the ring. He dragged Vince into position and got on the corner as Joey Mercury came to the ring and told Owens to get down. Owens ignored him and hit a Frogstar Splash on Vince before leaving the ring.

Owens was backing up the ramp and Stephanie McMahon arrived out to yell at Owens to go backstage. A stretcher was brought to ringside. Stephanie and several officials helped Vince stagger up the ramp. He eventually knelt down to collect himself and then continued up the ramp. #Wwe Smackdown Live
