Smackdown announced a return of Big E as we expected to see the reunion of The New Day after six weeks. However, that did not turn out to be the big news by the end of the night. Former World Champion, Dolph Ziggler appeared out of nowhere targeting Kofi Kingston that set up the next WWE Championship match at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.
The show kicked off with Kofi Kingston having a reunion with his New Day buddy, Big E. Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn did not take a long time to interrupt the segment and set up a match between Kofi and Zayn. The WWE Champion had no trouble whatsoever to put away the heel one and pick up the win by delivering a Trouble in Paradise. But the real shocker was waiting after the match.
Dolph Ziggler appeared out of nowhere and attacked Kofi Kingston from behind. He brought a chair and put around Kofi’s head and slammed it into the announce table to hurt him bad. There was a reason behind doing as the returnee targeted the WWE Championship. He challenged the reigning champion over the title which got accepted and it’s happening at WWE Super ShowDown. With that being said, one of the prime title matches is set for the upcoming pay-per-view event.
