A major title match has just been made for this Friday's episode of SmackDown.

After a brief spat on Twitter, Sami Zayn seems to have put Shinsuke Nakamura's Intercontinental championship in peril as this Friday, he will defend the championship against Roman Reigns.

it appears this all began when Sami, who was drafted as a unit with Nakamura, appeared unhappy that Roman was drafted before them.

Roman responded in typical Big Dog fashion but was quick to tell Sami Zayn that he also had his eyes on the prize

Roman was Intercontinental champion for a brief period of time in late 2017. At the time, the main championship on his brand was tied up by Brock Lesnar. Currently, Lesnar is WWE Champion on SmackDown and preoccupied with Cain Velasquez

We have seen in the past that when Brock is champion and not regularly appearing on television, the Intercontinental champion will get a boost to main event status.

Roman Reigns ready to take the Intercontinental Title from Shinsuke Nakamura

Sami Zayn brought his bark to Twitter Thursday morning, and The Big Dog took notice.

After Shinsuke Nakamura fell to the third round of the WWE Draft, Zayn took exception and spouted off on social media about the disrespect for the champion.


Zayn’s tweet entered The Big Dog’s yard, and Reigns responded that he was ready to place the Intercontinental Championship back on his shoulder.


Can The King of Strong Style continue cashing the checks that Zayn’s mouth writes? Or will Reigns end Nakamura’s reign and begin his own championship run to kick off the new era of SmackDown?

Tune in for Friday Night SmackDown on FOX at 8/7 C to see the thrilling Intercontinental Championship Match.
