• WWE has recorded a few minutes ago the episode of SmackDown that will be broadcast next Friday, December 25
  • Big E is crowned WWE Intercontinental Champion by defeating Sami Zayn in a Lumberjack match

During the tapes of the next episode of Friday Night SmackDown, Big E has defeated Sami Zayn to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship, earning his first singles title in more than six years.

Due to the Christmas calendar, WWE has held during this day the recordings of the Friday 25 episode of Friday Night SmackDown, a special that featured a rematch between Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens for the Universal Championship in a Steel Cage, or a match lumberjack in which Sami Zayn would put his Intercontinental Championship on the line against Big E.

The meeting featured Angelo Dawkins, Montez Ford, Chad Gable, Otis, Apollo, Drew Gulak, Lince Dorado, Akira Tozawa, Cesaro, Shinsuke Nakamura, Angel Garza, Calisto, Baron Corbin, Wesley Blake, Steve Cutler, Dolph Ziggler, and Bobby Roode like lumberjacks. Big E dominated the entire match, although Sami got an important chance to retain in the final minutes after a Sunset Flip Powerbomb from the third rope. Despite the Canadian’s efforts, Big E took the victory with a Belly to Belly followed by a Big Splash and the Big Ending.

In this way, Big E wins the WWE Intercontinental Championship for the second time in his career, a decoration that comes after more than six years without individual reigns. In a few moments, we will publish the full results of the recordings of the show, in which SoloWrestling has been able to take part through the WWE Thunderdome.
