Shane McMahon’s legal issues with Kevin Owens could be settled in a unique WWE way on next week’s SmackDown – in a ladder match.

Sasha Banks brutalises Becky Lynch
Carmella’s temporary alliance with Charlotte Flair ended in defeat, with the 24/7 champion – with those championship rules suspended for the match – tapping out to Sasha Banks’ Banks Statement to secure victory for her and Bayley.

Bryan interrupted Rowan and cut right to the chase: He wanted a fight right there and then.
