We see AJ Styles backstage walking. Back to commercial.

Back from the break and out comes WWE United States Champion AJ Styles. We see footage from last week’s segment with Kevin Owens and SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon, who went down after an accidental pele kick.

Fans chant AJ’s name. He says after seeing that footage, he has to get Shane out here first. The music hits and out comes the special referee for Sunday’s match between Owens and Styles. Shane thanks Providence for the love and goes on to tell AJ that no apology is necessary for last week. Fans chant Shane’s name now. AJ just wanted Shane to know that the kick was an accident. AJ wants to make sure, man to man, that Shane’s not going to use this as an excuse to screw him over on Sunday. Shane talks about being referee at SummerSlam and makes it clear – last week was an accident but if AJ puts his hands on him again, Shane will put his hands all over AJ. AJ keeps asking if that was a threat because it sounded like a threat. The tension continues until the music interrupts and out comes Owens.

Owens isn’t so sure that last week was an accident. He makes his way into the ring and says if anything happens during the match from his end, it’s an accident. Owens extends his hand for a shake and comments on getting his title back this Sunday. Shane says it wouldn’t be appropriate if he shook Owens’ hand but if Owens wants to shake, he should shake the hand of his opponent. Owens offers his hand to AJ.

This turns into trash talking and finger pointing. Owens shoves AJ. They go at it. Owens ducks and AJ almost punches Shane but Shane catches him and holds him. Owens tries to take advantage with a superkick from behind but AJ moves and Owens drops Shane instead. Owens can’t believe it. AJ smirks. A “you suck” chant starts up as Owens storms to the back. We go to a replay. Shane is down on the mat but getting to his feet. AJ is saying something to Shane, preparing to make his exit. We get another replay of what just happened to Shane. AJ heads to the back as Shane looks on while his music plays. Shane leaves the ring as well.

Back from the break and out comes SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon to a pop. We see what led to Shane being announced as the special referee for the WWE United States Title match at SummerSlam. Fans chant Shane’s name and he thanks them.

Shane talks about being named the special referee by Daniel Bryan last week. He introduces the challenger first and out comes Kevin Owens. Shane introduces AJ Styles next and out comes the WWE United States Champion. Styles and Owens stare each other down as fans do loud dueling chants. They talk trash but Shane gets between them. Shane says he called them out here so he could clear the air.

Shane brings up how Owens said he doesn’t believe Shane can be a fair referee last week. Owens says what he said last week was done in the heat of the moment and he apologizes. He brings up how we’ve already had a McMahon screw a Canadian before, referring to the Montreal Screwjob. A “you screwed Bret!” chant starts. Owens says WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart deserved to get screwed but he doesn’t. Owens goes on and says he’s not worried about getting screwed but he is worried about AJ. He wonders how Shane can be so fair to someone who did this to him just a few months ago… we see AJ destroying Shane backstage going into their WrestleMania 33 match.

AJ admits he wasn’t happy when Bryan made Shane the special referee at first. AJ says but the officiating hasn’t been great lately so Shane will need good luck with that. AJ says Owens is coming out here trying to be some master manipulator but he should just save his breath because it’s not working. AJ says if Shane screws him, he will have to face the repercussions just like he did at WrestleMania. AJ says he doesn’t trust anyone, especially a McMahon. Shane says AJ is confusing him with other family members, he doesn’t operate like that. Owens shows us footage of Shane screwing Steve Austin in the Survivor Series 1998 match against Mankind. Owens plugs the WWE Network and says there are hours of Shane screwing people over as a referee on there. Shane admits he’s had issues with AJ and Owens but that doesn’t matter now because he will be an impartial referee and he will call it down the middle. Shane says he won’t get involved unless he has to. He tells them not to give him a reason to get involved.

AJ brings up last week’s match, then proposes that they get rid of Shane, not wait until SummerSlam and do this right now with the title on the line. Fans pop. Owens says that sounds great but he’d rather win the United States Title in the United States, in a city that actually matters. AJ says what matters is that this is as close as Owens will get to the title. AJ taunts Owens with the title. They have a shoving match and Owens punches AJ with a cheap shot as Shane is in the way. AJ gets up and hits a pele kick but it nails Shane instead. Shane goes down. Owens laughs from ringside. A “you screwed Shane” chant starts up. AJ raises the title in the ring as Owens talks trash from the ramp. Shane is still down on the mat, looking up at AJ.

A recipe for The Biggest Event of the Summer: Take a Phenomenal One. Add one Face of America (preferably a New one). Add the United States Championship, and sprinkle a generous dash of Shane-O-Mac on top, and you get one of the most combustible United States Title Matches in recent memory.

After trading shocking wins and losses over the “workhorse” championship for months, AJ Styles and Kevin Owens take their white-hot rivalry to SummerSlam, as The Phenomenal One will defend his U.S. Title against KO with none other than SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon as the special guest referee.

That stipulation was made after two controversial incidents involving an official — the first at WWE Battleground when KO won the title from AJ in part because the referee was knocked loopy, and the second on SmackDown LIVE when Styles successfully retained the title against Owens because the ref missed The New Face of America’s shoulder rising off the mat.

A furious Owens demanded a rematch at SummerSlam, but he might have pressed his luck when he called for a ref that wouldn’t miss anything, as The Prodigal Son quickly volunteered himself for the task.

Given that Owens is going against a Superstar whom he’s openly antagonized for months, with an official whom he’s, well, also openly antagonized for months, he would certainly seem to have his work cut out for him. But Styles shouldn’t consider this one a gimme just yet. If there is anyone — anyone — who can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, it’s Kevin Owens, and Shane is nothing if not a man of his word: He’ll call the match down the middle whether it means handing his old WrestleMania foe a victory or a loss. In other words, after weeks of shenanigans, this one might come down to which Superstar is simply the better workhorse.

Who will walk out of Brooklyn as the United States Champion? Tune in to SummerSlam, streaming live Sunday, Aug. 20, at 8 ET/5 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.
