After the Universal Championship match at TLC, WWE announced that Sami Zayn would be defending his Intercontinental title versus Big E on Christmas Day.
On the December 18 edition of SmackDown, Big E won the inaugural Sami Award for Superstar of the Year and proceeded to attack the self-proclaimed "Champion of the People" after he was accused of altering the results.
It was confirmed today that the December 25 episode of SmackDown will record three days ahead of time. WWE announced their plans via Twitter when they invited fans to register for a special ThunderDome taping.
