Shane McMahon returning to WWE TV on next week's SmackDown

For the first time since Hell in a Cell, Shane McMahon will appear on WWE television as he returns to SmackDown next week.

That was announced after Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens defeated Shinsuke Nakamura & Randy Orton in last night's main event. Their tag match was put together in storyline after Zayn and Owens insulted Daniel Bryan in the opening segment. They saw Bryan again after the match and asked him what he has for them next week, with Bryan informing them that the decision will be left up to Shane.

Shane hasn't been on TV since his Hell in a Cell match against Owens earlier this month. He's been selling the "injuries" that he received at the pay-per-view, though some mainstream outlets picked up on WWE's storyline updates on Shane's condition and reported them as real.

Next week's SmackDown will also have AJ Styles vs. Sunil Singh, which was set up when Mahal volunteered Sunil to be Styles' opponent. Styles had interrupted Mahal earlier in the night when Mahal was challenging Brock Lesnar to a match at Survivor Series.
