Sami Awards segment announced for WWE Friday Night SmackDown



The WWE TLC go-home episode of Friday Night SmackDown will include a "Sami Awards" segment.

It was announced this week that the Slammy Awards are returning this year but on WWE's social media platforms and Sami Zayn feels that the awards show is biased to the corporate favorites.

As a result, Zayn says he will present his own award show on SmackDown and he promises to reflect the "true will of the people."

Zayn said, "The #Slammy Awards are good fun, but clearly very biased to highlight corporate favorites. That’s why tomorrow night on #Smackdown I will host the FIRST ANNUAL SAMI AWARDS! The always honest ‘Champion of the People’, will present awards that reflect the true will of the people!"

This week's SmackDown will air on Fox Sports 1. In addition to the "Sami Awards" segment, WWE has announced Bianca Belair vs. Bayley and The Street Profits will defend the SmackDown Tag Team Titles against Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler.
