In-Ring: Kevin Owens
A video kicks off the show highlighting Kevin Owens calling out “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to appear on The KO Show on WrestleMania. The next day, Austin confirmed that Owens has awakened something inside him and he will be at WrestleMania.
Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring. Owens says, “Hey yo!” What we’re looking at right now is the happiest Canadian camper in the world because he is going to WrestleMania! Owens said he used his superior Canadian intellect to get on the card. Since none of the yellow teethed Texans can turn down a challenge, he challenged the embodiment of Texas itself. Owens knew Austin would accept. Owens is proud of himself because now the entire world and the USA get to witness the most stupendous KO Show of all time when he stuns Stone Cold all throughout Texas. The only can that will be opened up in Texas is a nice Canadian beer. Owens doesn’t even like beer, but he’ll make an exception on that night. Nobody will be saying “Oh hell yeah” when he’s done with him. Everyone will be saying “Oh hell no” as they watch him beat the living hell out of Austin. Owens says, “And that’s the bottom line because KO said so!” Owens then hits the cameraman with a Stunner!

Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring. Owens can’t wait to hear this. Rollins asks everyone if they’re ready, and everyone is. Rollins says Owens has a talk show in The KO Show.

Edge comes out to new music. It’s “The Other Side” by Alter Bridge. Edge says he is the benchmark and better than everyone in the industry. Since he came back two years ago, he hasn’t shown that aptitude. The Edge that came back intent on pleasing everyone was weak. Edge realized the people don’t matter to him. In trying to appease everyone, he took his eye off the prize and allowed Randy Orton to tear his tricep off the bone. That Edge allowed Seth Rollins to cost him the World Title and enter his house to piss on his territory. It allowed the cosplayer Roman Reigns to stack him at WrestleMania.
If AJ Styles was facing that Edge at WrestleMania, he’d leave that Edge in the dust. That Edge is dead. Now he sits perched on his Mountain of Omnipotence looking down at everyone. Edge won’t be judged by anyone in the crowd, the locker room, or AJ Styles. A “You suck” chant picks up. Edge will hand out the verdicts around here and would apologize if he cared, but he doesn’t. If AJ Styles makes it to WrestleMania with two generational talents facing each other for the first time on the grandest stage of them all, Styles will be judged. Edge drops the microphone and psychotically smiles.

Angelo Dawkins says when it comes to the titles, they’re not bros. Ford says they’re not asking… they’re telling them they’re wrestling them at WrestleMania.
