During the WWE TLC pay-per-view, it was announced that Big E will challenge Sami Zayn for the Intercontinental Championship on Friday Night SmackDown.
Big E and Sami Zayn had a confrontation backstage during the TLC pay-per-view. Zayn accused Big E of being the person who leaked the audio of his backstage rant to Kayla Saxton.
Big E promised that he would see Zayn soon. Big E pinned Zayn during a Eight-Man Tag match during the TLC Kickoff show.
SmackDown will be taped this Tuesday to give the roster time off for Christmas.
All @WWEBigE wants to Christmas … is the Intercontinental Championship!
