New WWE Intercontinental Champion crowned on Friday Night SmackDown

Sami Zayn defeated Shinsuke Nakamura to win the Intercontinental Championship during tonight’s episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown. Zayn won the title by working over Nakamura’s leg and then rolling him up. The turning point of the match was when Nakakamura’s knee struck the steel steps.

The title win for Zayn (this was taped last Friday) has led to speculation that he will defend against Johnny Knoxville at WrestleMania 38. That is not confirmed but Knoxville has continued to be involved with Zayn after the Royal Rumble and on commentary tonight, Corey Graves said, “eat your heart out Johnny Knoxville.”

Knoxville has stated that he suffered a brain hemorrhage during filming for the “Jackass Forever” movie so it’s possible that he could only be involved in some sort of managerial role at Mania with Zayn defending against a full-time wrestler.
