This past Tuesday night on SmackDown Live, Kevin Owens and Shinsuke Nakamura had a match for a spot on the Blue brand's five-man team to face Monday Night RAW's five-man team at Survivor Series in just under three weeks.
On last week's show, Sami Zayn lost his qualifying match against Randy Orton, so this week, he came to ringside during Owens' contest with Nakamura to try and help his best friend win and earn a spot on the team.
During the match, The Underdog From The Underground was instructed by The Prizefighter to clear the table so that they could put Shinsuke through it. In the process of clearing though, a hilarious moment happened.
Zayn threw the cover off of the announce table, but the cover took an awkward bounce off of the floor, causing it to fly at a fan in the crowd who was sitting at ringside.
The fan went to Twitter afterward and posted a picture of the damage which had been done by the cover.
He also responded to another fan who suggested that he was stretchered out of the arena after the incident, saying that he is actually okay:
It's good to see that he's okay and that he hasn't lost an eye! Hopefully, he is able to see the lighter side of this hilarious moment.
Unfortunately for Zayn and Owens though, Nakamura went on to win the match to join team captain Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, and Bobby Roode as part of the SmackDown's men's team for Survivor Series. However, there are reports stating how the best friends will get their own back.
According to reports, Zayn and Owens will cost Team SmackDown in their men's traditional interbrand 5-on-5 Survivor Series elimination match against RAW on November 19. We'll have to wait and see if that happens. It fits well into the current storyline well of Zayn and Owens vs Shane McMahon, so it might just happen.
