WWE taped their Christmas Day episode of Friday Night SmackDown days before the show aired. The main event of the night saw Big E challenge Sami Zayn for the IC Title in a Lumberjack Match. It was a very Merry Christmas for Big E.

Click here for our complete spoilers of WWE Friday Night SmackDown this week.

This match was a Lumberjack Match. That stipulation came in handy near the end. Zayn tried to run off, but they all carried him back to the ring. Then Big E hit a Big Ending and won the IC Title.

This marks Big E’s second run as IC Champion. His first run with the title was in 2013.


Big E was split apart from Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods during the WWE Draft. The New Day might be split up, but they were never officially broken up. Big E did introduce new music by Wale recently to replace his New Day entrance.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
