Smackdown came to us from Milwaukee, WI this week
Opening Segment: MizTV with Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens
– Zayn referenced how the two had been friends throughout their indie careers, and that Zayn was even best man at Owen’s wedding, so he can’t believe how Owens attacked him the night he won the NXT championship
– Owens, who never enters the ring, says it was just business. He continues to say that he’s now the Intercontinental Champion and debuted on the main roster before he did, so obviously it was the right thing for him to do. But Owens says that Zayn made it personal at the Royal Rumble.
– Zayn wants a shot at the IC title at Wrestlemania, but then Neville comes out and says he does too, and finally Miz also says that he wants a shot.
We go to commercial and when we come back we get:
