On the previous episode of Smackdown, Vince McMahon was busted open when Keven Owens landed a headbutt. But according to wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, McMahon must have cut himself open prior to the stunt.
Before the attack, Mr. McMahon has given the former champion his word that he could take out any McMahon that stood in his path. Taking advantage of Vince’s agreement, Owens laid down a vicious beatdown on the boss which left him in a critical condition.
McMahon had tried to fight back but all in vain. Owens was quick enough to continue his assault on his boss. This lead to the WWE officials hurrying to the ring to stop any further more attack on McMahon.
According to Meltzer, McMahon would have cut himself up and covered the flesh wound with Nu-Skin. But while performing the stunt Owens would still require some force to break open the covered cut with the headbutt.
Vince McMahon proves once again that he isn’t too old for the sport. This isn’t the first time he has pulled out a stunt. He has been put on his back several times by multiple superstars like John Cena, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H.
