WWE crowned Big E as the new Intercontinental Champion on Christmas Day, and he has already defended his title against Apollo Crews. Next week they are set to go at it once again.
Apollo Crews defeated Sami Zayn this week on SmackDown. Zayn was not happy at all about this. Apollo then got in Roman Reigns’ face, and they had a back and forth. Big E said he has no problem defending the title against Apollo again.
Prior to the main event segment which included a huge swerve, Big E’s title defense was made official. Big E will defend the IC Title next week against Apollo Crews.
