Who will leave WWE?
The war between Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens will finally be settled when SmackDown premieres on Fox on Oct. 4 as the two rivals will put their respective careers on the line in a ladder match. Owens and McMahon agreed to the match on Tuesday's SmackDown instead spending years in a legal battle. You can watch the segment in the video above.
WWE later confirmed the date for the showdown.
Kevin Owens hasn’t been able to escape the ire of Shane McMahon during his SmackDown tenure, and it’s continuously put his WWE career in jeopardy.
As a last resort, Owens threatened Shane-O-Mac with a massive lawsuit and set out to hit him where it hurts most: the wallet. Presented with the possibility of an ongoing court battle, KO offered McMahon an alternative settlement for their dispute.
The rivals agreed to put their careers on the line in a Ladder Match on the FOX Friday Night SmackDown premiere with the loser fired from WWE.
Will Owens get the chance to hand “The Best in the World” his walking papers, or will McMahon get rid of his most insubordinate employee once and for all?
Tune in to the Friday Night SmackDown premiere on Oct. 4 on FOX at 8/7 C.
Along with the ladder match, WWE also confirmed a Four Horsewomen tag team match for the Fox premiere of SmackDown.
