WWE SmackDown Live 10/3 recap

With only a few days left before Smackdown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens meet in the ring, the two bitterest of rivals came face to face last night for a verbal showdown and confirmation that their bout would now also have a Falls Count Anywhere modifier attached to it. This will be an exclusive SmackDown Live brand event. McMahon announces that in case things get out of hand, the Hell in a Cell match is now Falls Count Anywhere.

Kevin Owens then made his way into the arena through the crowd, and he teased that he would be getting into the ring with Shane, but then he walked away.

The night opened with Shinsuke Nakamura coming out to address the Denver, Colorado crowd about WWE Champion Jinder Mahal's recent prodding.

Nakamura was able to mount a comeback against Mahal, however, until The Singh Brothers joined in on the attack. Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch too on SmackDown Women's Champion Natalya and Ms. Money in the Bank Carmella. Owens then entered the arena and made his way back down to the ring while Shane McMahon recovered. Will the winners be in line for a Tag Team Title shot? Roode and Dolph Ziggler had a slight back and forth adding a bit to the anticipation for their match Sunday.

There are two HIAC matches this year, with The Usos challenging for The New Day's SmackDown Tag Team Championships in the opener, and Shane McMahon fighting Kevin Owens in the main event.

Owens and McMahon will attempt to settle their blood feud inside the Hell in a Cell structure on Sunday. Owens then enforced his will on the heir to the McMahon legacy, brutally powerbombing Shane through a merch table. There is no match I want to see more on the show, and SmackDown has done a great job keeping fans interested in a hot rivalry despite the fact that it's been lengthened to such an extreme degree.
