This new episode of WWE Smackdown opens from the O2 Arena in London with the entry of Roman Reigns. The Big Dog speaks up and says he has some accounts to settle after RAW last night. He says he does not expect Money in the Bank to solve his problem with Elias. He asks the audience to welcome Smackdown to The Miz. The latter makes his entrance and says that there are only five days left before he can beat up and defeat Shane McMahon at Money in the Banks.
He recalls the terrible things Shane did to his father and said that this Sunday, Shane will be locked in a Steel Cage … before being interrupted by the music of Shane McMahon. Accompanied by Elias, McMahon says that an invitation from Roman Reigns is not enough to justify the presence of The Miz in Wild Card Rule, so it is banned from the arena tonight.
Elias then says that this Sunday he will prove to Roman Reigns why he was chosen by Vince McMahon as “the greatest acquisition in WWE history.” Shane then says that The Miz must leave but that, since he will not leave, they will have to do it themselves. Shane and Elias then head for the ring and Daniel Bryan and Rowan come out to help. Attacked by the four men, Miz and Reigns are joined by RAW Superstars, The Usos. The babyfaces take the advantage to conclude the segment.
After the ad, Shane McMahon announces behind the scenes that he, Elias, Daniel Bryan and Rowan will face Roman Reigns and The Usos in a 4 on 3 Handicap match.

Behind the scenes, we find Kevin Owens announcing that we are only minutes away from a very special Kevin Owens Show with special guest WWE Champion Kofi Kingston. He goes on to say that this Sunday, at Money in the Bank, he will destroy Kingston. He is interrupted by the music of Kofi Kingston, who heads for the ring.
After the ad, Kofi Kingston is in the middle of the ring and says he is the guest of the Kevin Owens Show tonight at the request of the host and he is present, so he asks Owens himself to come and present the KO Show. But Owens does not come. Kingston wonders then if he would not be shy but it is not possible, he said, with all he could say earlier. He is interrupted by Kevin Owens, still behind the scenes and via the giant screen. The latter reminds the champion that he has reached his dream of 11 years in Wrestlemania in the presence of his family and New Day. But then he asks if he has ever thought about how the dream will end one day because he is afraid of reality.
A video package summarizing Owens’ arrival at the WWE is then aired, “proving why he will get caught up in reality,” Owens explains. Kingston says that this proves nothing and throws the chairs in the ring and tells Owens to come to settle their accounts. Owens then lands and is attacked by Kingston. The latter manages to take the lead but is attacked in turn by Sami Zayn, who comes to lend a hand to his best friend. Xavier Woods also arrives to help Kingston. The two heels take the lead, but the WWE champion reverses the situation and ends this episode of Smackdown Live by celebrating in front of the fans.
