Big E defeated Sami Zayn to become the Intercontinental Champion on a special holiday edition of SmackDown on Fox.

It all went down in the WWE ThunderDome, where Big E and Zayn fought in a Lumberjack Match.

Zayn made several attempts to flee during the match, but was prevented from doing so by the lumberjacks who were loyal to Big E.

Big E hit Zayn with a Big Ending to pick up the win. Following the match, Big E’s locker room buddies celebrated with him in the ring.

The episode was taped on the 22nd so that talent could have Christmas Day off.

Big E begins his second reign as Intercontinental Champion. He first won the title from Curtis Axel back in 2013 and lost it to Bad News Barrett 167 day later.
