KO Show segment, Kofi Kingston interview set for WWE SmackDown


WWE has announced two segments for tonight's go-home episode of SmackDown.

WWE is hyping that Kevin Owens has invited Shane McMahon to appear on the KO Show tonight. Kofi Kingston will also respond to Randy Orton in an "exclusive interview."

Owens vs. Shane is set for SummerSlam. The match has a stipulation where Owens will quit WWE if he loses.

Shane didn't make an in-person appearance on SmackDown last week, with the storyline explanation being that Shane's life coach told him that he needed to get centered and get his emotions in check after being attacked by Owens.

Owens defeated Drew McIntyre last Tuesday.

Kingston will defend his WWE Championship against Orton at Sunday's pay-per-view. Last week, a video package aired where Orton discussed their history against each other and called Kingston stupid for challenging him to a match at SummerSlam.

Tonight's SmackDown is taking place at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan. WWE has announced that Roman Reigns will appear on the show. Reigns' mystery attacker angle continued last night, with someone trying to run Reigns down with their car while he was in the parking lot.
