Kevin Owens is back on SmackDown Live … and he’s replacing Kofi Kingston in the WWE Championship match at Fastlane. 

It all went down during the opening segment when Mr. McMahon interrupted a contract signing between Kofi Kingston and Daniel Bryan to announce Owens would be replacing Kofi at Fastlane.

“I’m replacing you with a man I’ve appointed who is quite frankly more deserving than you,” Vince explained to Kingston after noting that it was his duty to give fans the biggest box office. 

An irate New Day then walked to the back.
