WWE SmackDown video highlights: Kevin Owens turns heel


Kevin Owens' short-lived stint as an honorary member of The New Day came to an end last night.

Kofi Kingston's match against Shinsuke Nakamura in the main event of this week's SmackDown ended in a disqualification when Rusev interfered. Owens and Xavier Woods laid out Rusev, but Nakamura hit the Kinshasa on Woods.

Kingston helped Owens by pushing him out of the way of Nakamura. Kingston hit Trouble in Paradise on Nakamura, then Owens gave Kingston a superkick. Owens ripped off his New Day T-shirt and said he's coming after Kingston's WWE Championship. Owens set Kingston up for an apron powerbomb. Woods tried to fight Owens off, but Owens gave him the powerbomb instead.

Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair took part in a face-to-face segment last night, which set up Charlotte taking on Bayley in a number one contender's match. Charlotte won and will challenge for Lynch's SmackDown Women's Championship at Money in the Bank. Lynch is also defending the Raw Women's title against Lacey Evans at the pay-per-view.

Roman Reigns will face Elias at Money in the Bank after being attacked by Elias and Shane McMahon on SmackDown.
