After the Intercontinental Title match was confirmed for next week, WWE has also announced that SmackDown Tag Team Championship will also be on the line.
WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits – Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins will defend the titles against Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode on SmackDown 8 January 2020 episode. The match was confirmed on Saturday morning’s Talking Smack episode.
Ziggler and Roode pinned the Tag Team Champs on 27 November episode. Since then, both of them also had singles wins over Montez Ford. However, they were unable to win the title on 18 December episode of SmackDown.
This week at SmackDown, Ford and Dawkins were celebrating their success in 2020 which includes them winning both RAW and SmackDown Tag Team Titles, and two 2020 Slammy Awards.
Titled as New Year 2021 Smoke-Tacular, the segment saw the Street Profits making fun of the likes of Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode. This was followed by Ziggler and Roode attacking them. They particularly attacked Ford’s left leg by hitting it with a steel chair against the ring post.
The 8 January 2020 episode also has WWE Intercontinental Championship match between Big E and Apollo Crews. The match was fixed after Crews accepted an open challenge from the new IC champ.
