WWE Smackdown: Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn brutally attack Shane McMahon

- Kevin Owens tweeted the following on SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon being spotted on this week's RAW in the Gorilla Position segment with Roman Reigns and Vince McMahon while the blue brand crew was in Dayton, OH for a non-televised live event.

The planned match between Zayn and Owens is now in doubt and so too is the immediate wellbeing of Shane O Mac, who was struggling for breath as SmackDown faded to black. It started hot, with McMahon disrupting Owens' United States championship run amid a series of matches with questionable officiating - culminating with McMahon donning the stripes at SummerSlam as Owens lost to AJ Styles.

WWE SmackDown has built its entire product around Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for more than five months, and it was a complete waste of time.

It seems that WWE indeed will not put Zayn and Owens, the latter of which actually seemed to be developing into a decent draw over the last couple of years, in a pre-show battle royal that will be viewed by significantly fewer fans than the actual WrestleMania show will be. Will Owens face Zayn at WrestleMania 34?

"We appreciate that Shane", said Owens.

Klay Thompson has fractured right thumb, out until March 22
Though the Warriors are calling it a right thumb sprain, an ESPN report referred to it a fracture. The Warriors will be without their starting backcourt for at least the next four games.

With that, Zayn blindsided the now-former Commissioner, and a two-on-one attack ensued.

That brought Owens and Zayn out to criticize the decision, and as a "going away present" they attacked Shane, wrapped a chair around his neck and slammed it into the ringpost. The duo went on to drag Shane backstage, where he was powerbombed onto a metal rack, resulting in trapezius and rhomboid strains. There is no word on how long he will be gone or if he will be back in the role at all.

Earlier on the show, Shane McMahon addressed the WWE Universe and announced that he would be taking a temporary leave of absence due to his recent actions, as reported by Wrestling Inc.

Most importantly, with Bryan now serving as a singular figure of authority, there will be more of a focus on the performers and less of a focus on the people who should simply be a mechanism for nudging stories in the right direction when they need it.
