Kevin Owens has joined the SmackDown roster as its newest member. The news was made official during Friday’s SmackDown, where it was disclosed that Owens was the person traded to SmackDown in exchange for Jey Uso, who moved to Raw in September. After Jey’s move to Raw was announced, it was stated that SmackDown would be receiving a Superstar from the red brand in exchange for him.
The announcement was delivered by Nick Aldis, who was appointed as the new General Manager of SmackDown by Triple H. During the segment, Dominik Mysterio entered the ring to complain about Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso defending the Undisputed Tag Team titles shortly before their title match scheduled for Raw. As Aldis introduced Owens, he promptly came out to the ring and hit ‘Dirty Dom’ with a stunner.
