- As seen on tonight's WWE SmackDown, Commissioner Shane McMahon took the WWE Title belt from Jinder Mahal to return it to champion Randy Orton. Orton was likely kept off the show to sell the "House of Horrors" loss from Sunday's WWE Payback pay-per-view but Mahal did appear, picking up a win over Sami Zayn with help from The Singh Brothers.
There was a post-match angle done tonight that saw Owens destroy Jericho, possibly to write him off TV for the upcoming Fozzy tour. Jericho is scheduled to start touring with Fozzy this coming Friday. The band will be touring through the month of May with concerts scheduled every Tuesday starting next week, through May 30th.
WWE tweeted this post-SmackDown video of Jericho being helped to the back after the final attack from Owens:
