Kingston and Orton confrontation

The WWE Champion, Kofi Kingston, cuts a promo as he reminisces of attacking Randy Orton in MSG of 2009.

‘The Viper’ comes out to confront Kingston & claims that his WWE title reign is incomparable to the Orton legacy.

After trading insults, they inevitably brawl into the crowd area as Orton utilizes a steel chair.

However, Kingston fends off Orton. Kingston then repeats his 2009 moment of Double Leg Dropping Orton through a table in MSG.

Kingston and Orton will have their WWE title rematch at Clash of Champions this Sunday.

Main Event KOTR Semi-final Match

SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon appoints his rival, Kevin Owens, as the special guest referee in the main event match.

Shane offers Owens a deal; if Owens ensures Shane’s victory, he’ll drop Owens’ $100,000 fine.

In addition, McMahon is replacing Elias in the King of the Ring semi-final match against Chad Gable.

This is due to Elias sustaining an ankle injury. As a result, he’s out of the tournament.

‘The Prizefighter’ lives up to his name & fast-counts for McMahon.

Nevertheless, Gable solidifies his victory as he defeats McMahon via submission by way of the ankle lock.

In a shocking turn of events, the Commissioner fires Kevin Owens.

In conclusion, Chad Gable will wrestle Baron Corbin, the night after Clash of Champions, on the following September 16th episode of RAW to determine the 2019 King of the Ring.
