Shane McMahon - Daniel Bryan Tension Continues

SmackDown will see the WWE United States Title tournament continue with Mojo Rawley vs. Zack Ryder in the last first round match.

Shane McMahon then arrived to even up the numbers with another handicap match - the Yep Movement v Styles, Randy Orton, and Shinsuke Nakamura later that night.

It seems that this wasn't quite the update that the WWE Universe was hoping for, but with Shane and Bryan's current feud definitely heading somewhere, fans will keep their fingers crossed that it is a singles match on the Grandest Stage of Them All. But Owens and Zayn, being as clever they are, made a decision to get themselves count-out and staged a walkout.

KO and Zayn come out for some trash talk and say AJ has no chance of walking out of the Royal Rumble with the WWE World Title.

- The show opened with AJ Styles being interviewed by Renee Young.

AJ chased Owens to the back with a chair.

Only one way to sum this match up: SHENANIGANS!

Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin cut a tedious promo (these boys sure can wrestle, but they're not talkers) about their phantom title win last week. Shane agrees with AJ that the handicap match is unfair, he's baffled why the Smackdown GM would give Owens and Zayn a title shot, but he backs Daniel.for now.

After the match return, Ruby was in control for much of the match until... she just wasn't.

But KO and Zayn interrupted and dropped a bombshell - if they defeat Styles at the Rumble, they'll be known as co-WWE Champion, which would be a first in WWE history. And of course, the rest of the Riott Squad had to be at ringside with Ruby, while Naomi and Charlotte were in Becky's corner.

With his ticket punched to the semi-finals, Ryder had a post-match staredown with his next opponent: The glorious one, Bobby Roode. Becky got the win by submitting Ruby to the Disarm-her. Styles took Owens to the backstage leaving Zayn isolated in the ring with Orton and Nakamura.

Match started and nearly immediately went to commercial.

Becky Lynch entered the women's Royal Rumble match.

The Bludgeon Brothers completely squashed The Ascension. It made for a very sad Rusev Day.
