Two Title Matches Official for Next Week's WWE Friday Night Smackdown


-- Last night on Friday Night Smackdown, it was announced that Big E will defend his Intercontinental title for the first time and his opponent will be Apollo Crews. The two teamed up on the show and then during a backstage post-match interview, Big E noted that he was going to issue an open challenge for his title, which Crews immediately accepted.

-- Also announced this morning on Talking Smack, The Street Profits will defend their titles against Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode. Ziggler and Roode issued a rematch for the belts after losing the first time and today on Talking Smack, the Profits officially accepted. You can read a full recap of the show here.

After an absolutely brutal chair assault by Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode, it was confirmed on WWE Talking Smack that the SmackDown Tag Team Champions will once again put their illustrious titles on the line against The Showoff and his "Glorious" partner.

The Street Profits bested the challengers in their final match of 2020, but Ziggler & Roode hope to recapture the magic of earlier victories to open the new year.

Considering the vicious nature of the attack by their would-be challengers, will The Street Profits – particularly the knee of Montez Ford – be in any condition to repel their dangerous opposition? Find out next Friday at 8/7 C on SmackDown on FOX.
