Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn is now official for the WWE Hell In a Cell pay-per-view.
Tonight’s SmackDown saw WWE Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews and Commander Azeez defeat Owens and Big E in tag team action. Sami, who was on commentary, distracted Owens before he ran back into the ring to prevent a count out. The debuting Azeez was waiting for Owens with a Nigerian Nail, nailing it for the pin to win the match.
Longtime rivals and friends Owens and Zayn have been feuding on SmackDown for a few weeks now. Adam Pearce made Sunday’s match official after Owens approached he and Sonya Deville during a commercial break following tonight’s tag team match.
