I had a feeling they would make the singles match between Owens and Zayn for Mania, however i dont think that match is finished yet.

Based on the way the storyline has gone and what happened at the end of Smackdown - Shane will somehow be added to the match to make it a triple threat

I think it’s more likely Shane and a partner will take on Sami and Kevin.

The original idea apparently was Daniel Bryan and Shane vs Owens/Zayn but DB refused as WWE would only allow him to have extremely limited physical interaction in the match, so unless Bryan has been cleared to wrestle it will be someone else.

I hope they keep the Owens and Zayn alliance going for a while longer, it still has legs and I prefer it to seeing yet another Owens and Zayn feud which feels like it’s been done to death.

Had a thought WWE could book this as a easy way to have a big name make a surprise appearance, it’s simple.....

Have Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon scheduled to take on Owens and Zayn, just prior to the match or even on the go home edition of Smackdown or perhaps the Wrestlemania pre-show Zayn/Owens attack Bryan and ‘injure’ him taking him out of the match, the beating could take place off camera just showing a laid out Bryan backstage so that way he doesn’t have to do any physical stuff.
Shane’O comes out and then his partner is revealed to be someone like Goldberg or Batista making a surprise appearance, failing that they could even do a NXT debut maybe Alistair Black for example.

The only thing is - if they tease at Bryan having an in-ring return - have him attacked and injured so he cant compete - it will cause absolute uproar and maybe more harm than good.

There are a huge portion of fans that want to see Bryan wrestle again.

This could work though - as long as they actually clear Bryan to wrestle and then have him finally make his in ring return at Backlash - if they just leave it after that then it wont go down well with the fans at all

It has been great how these 2 have been booked over the past few weeks - WWE are finally getting the most out of them.

The "Firing" them storyline was surely a way to get them to hate on Bryan and attack him so they can bring them back and have a tag match at Mania?

Owens is gold!!

Quote We see a video package looking back at the history between Kevin OWens, Sami Zayn, Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan.

 Shane McMahon & Daniel Bryan vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn: If Owens and Zayn win, they get their jobs back. We get a video package about the “yes” chants before Bryan’s entrance. Owens and Zayn attack from behind before the match and they beat down Bryan and McMahon all over ringside. They powerbomb Bryan onto the ring apron, and the ref and Shane call for medics to check out Bryan. Owens and Zayn dare Shane to come in to the ring and face them, and Shane does and calls for the ring bell. Shane punches Sami off the apron and then pummels on Owens. Shane hits a flying elbow on Owens, then punches out Sami, and Shane is still selling his injuries. Shane beats on Sami in the corner, then hits a big boot on Owens. Shane hits a DDT on Sami, then Owens drops Shane and stomps on him in the corner. Owens and Zayn now take turns tagging and beating on Shane. Sami hits the Blue Thunder Bomb on Shane for a two count. Sami misses a shot in the corner and Shane hangs him up on the ropes and stomps on him. Owens misses a shot and Shane throws him outside. Sami is still hanging upside down in the corner, and Shane goes up top on the opposite corner. Shane hits the coast to coast dropkick on Sami in the opposite corner. Shane pins but OWens breaks it up. Owens follows up with a frogsplash off the top on Shane and pins, but Daniel Bryan comes out of nowhere and breaks up the pin. Owens misses a shot on Shane, then Sami comes in and Shane drops him with a back suplex. Bryan gets the hot tag and starts cleaning house. Owens tries to attack Bryan from behind, but Bryan hits a back suplex on him, and then a running dropkick on Sami. He hits a series of running dropkicks on both Owens and Zayn in opposing corners. Bryan takes Sami up top and hits a Frankensteiner. Owens distracts Bryan and Sami hits the big boot on Bryan for a two count. Owens comes in and hits the Pop Up Powerbomb on Bryan for a two count. Shane pulls Owens outside and hits a splash off the apron on him. Sami starts punching Bryan, but Bryan starts no-selling and lays into Sami with punches and slaps. He hits a knee to the face, then the “yes kicks.” Bryan follows up with a running knee to the face, and then the Yes Lock. Sami taps out, and Bryan and McMahon have won.

Winners: Shane McMahon & Daniel Bryan

– Bryan kisses his wife at ringside and then celebrates the victory with Shane.

 
So I guess they are going to Raw, even though the storyline makes little sense.
 
In a position of management you can't be professional enough to look past differences and instead are willing to weaken your brand by losing two of the biggest names on it Confused
 
They do need a rebuild after looking so weak against a 40 plus year old guy who wrestles a few times a year and a guy back from retirement after three years.

Zayn and Owens should have won, Bryan should have gotten fired (and moved to Raw). But the bright side is that Zayn and Owens obviously aren't fired legit so they'll move to Raw or find some other way back into Smackdown, and Bryan looked great in the ring, so hopefully he and light a fire under the people he works with and feud with AJ Styles soon maybe as the main event of Summerslam? AJ Styles (c) defending against Daniel Bryan?

Bryan wasn't going to lose his first match back and it had been rumoured for a while plans were in place to move Zayn and Owens to Raw which I assume is now the plan, if so they will need to switch some decent heel talent to Smackdown to fill that void.

It was a solid enough match and obviously the fans were pumped for Bryan's in-ring return and he looked sharp. Shane did more than I expected too what with his health issues. In summary this was one of the highlights of a poor Wrestlemania.

So they just showed up on Raw and Kurt Angle said the tag divisions. Was full but "I hear TNA is hiring." This even got the live audience to chant holy shit.

Yep think that’s the first time TNA have been referred to directly by name on WWE tv. At least that gives us a idea of what WWE think of them, clearly not very much.

Not sure where they are going with this storyline, I think we know neither man will be legit fired but at this point I really don’t know which brand they will end up on. The main issue here is that in the case of Owens he was right on the verge of establishing himself as a headliner when this feud with Shane started, now he seems to be firmly back in the mid-card pretty much on a par with Zayn. This alliance has helped Zayn but it’s lowered the status of Owens.
