Big Intercontinental Championship Match Announced For SmackDown

Big Intercontinental Championship Match Announced For SmackDown

WWE has just announced a big Intercontinental Title Match for Friday’s SmackDown episode from Indianapolis, Indiana at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Shinsuke Nakamura will defend his title against Roman Reigns. The match was made after a back & forth between Sami Zayn and Reigns earlier today, which Nakamura chimed in on.

Sami fired the first tweet and mentioned how he and Nakamura were drafted together after Reigns.

He wrote, “Nakamura-san & I were eligible to be drafted together & got picked in the 3rd round by #Smackdown. Imagine being able to get a generation-defining performer AND the Intercontinental Champion together in one pick & still deciding to pick The Big D Roman Reigns first. Unreal. – SZ”

Reigns responded and issued a challenge.

He wrote, “Don’t concern yourself with the Big D Sami [laughing emoji] but if you and Shin want to go from 3rd round to face #1…you know where to find me. And bring the #ICTitle with you. #BigDog #BigDeal #SmackDown”

That’s when WWE made the match official and Nakamura responded to the “Big D” comments.

“Are we talking about same thing? If the Big Dog wants to play, I ‘ll allow him to come into #MyYard with #treats,” Nakamura said.
