Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have been the talk of the town on SDLive. In the past few months they have really gotten under Shane McMahon’s skin. Sami cost Shane his match with Owens at Hell in a Cell. Owens and Sami then both interfered in the Team RAW vs. Team SDLive match to attack Shane. Not to mention the many segments on SDLive.
A few weeks back, it was announced that K.O and Sami Zayn will take on Orton and Nakamura at Clash of Champions later tonight. Not only that, but Owens and Sami’s WWE careers are on the line, .and Shane McMahon appointed himself special guest referee.
Daniel Bryan was obviously not happy with this decision, and we could see a lot of tension between Shane and Bryan. Eventually, it led to Daniel adding himself to the match as a special guest referee.
Now, what on earth is going on? Why are there two referees? There’s been a lot of speculation as to what might happen. First of all, I just want to point out that no one is expecting Sami and Owens to lose.
1. Orton Turns on Shinsuke, Giving Owens and Zayn the Win
Not sure how likely this is, but it’s a possibility. Orton will RKO Shinsuke (outta nowhere) and turn heel in the process. This would set up a feud; heel Randy vs. babyface Shinsuke.
2. Daniel Aligns Himself with Kevin and Sami
Daniel Bryan has been showing his support of Sami and Owens throughout the weeks. He knows they are great wrestlers and great assets to SmackDown Live, and he is basically the one fighting to keep them on SDLive.
Bryan could possibly be the one to turn on Sunday. There are six men, someone’s gotta turn. It would be interesting to see Bryan play the heel.
3. Tensions Between Shane and Bryan Reaches its Boiling Point
There’s gotta be at least one spot where Shane and Bryan disagree on something. This is when one of them should snap and attack the other. This could lead to a match down the line if WWE were to clear Bryan.
4. Sami and Kevin Do Get Fired
Seems highly unlikely to me, but I decided to include it anyway. What could happen is that Sami and Owens lose their jobs, but they come back just a few weeks later like nothing happened. Just like when Cena got fired in the Nexus angle.
