On the Jan. 1 edition of SmackDown, Intercontinental Champion Big E joined forces with Apollo Crew to overcome the tandem of Sami Zayn and King Corbin.
The Powerhouse of Positivity is eager to prove himself a fighting champion, so rather than sit back and wait for a challenger to present himself, Big E announced that he will issue an open challenge for his title the following week on the blue brand. Instead, Crews stepped up and informed Big E that he will be accepting that challenge.
Their Intercontinental Title Match was made official later in the show. Don’t miss the action, next Friday at 8/7 C on FOX.
