• BREAKING: Roman Reigns Getting A Title Match This Friday On SmackDown
WWE just announced the following:
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.
Nakamura-san & I were eligible to be drafted together & got picked in the 3rd round by #Smackdown.
Imagine being able to get a generation-defining performer AND the Intercontinental Champion together in one pick & still deciding to pick The Big D Roman Reigns first. Unreal. – SZ

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.
Don’t concern yourself with the Big D Sami 🤣 but if you and Shin want to go from 3rd round to face #1…you know where to find me.

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?
— Shinsuke Nakamura (@ShinsukeN) October 17, 2019
Tune in for Friday Night SmackDown on FOX at 8/7 C to see the thrilling Intercontinental Championship Match.”
This is Reigns’ first title match after almost a year.
