The New Day Present Big E’s Welcome Back Celebration
After spending the past month on the shelf (and Twitter) following knee surgery, Big E is returning to SmackDown LIVE, and The New Day could not be happier! In fact, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods are throwing a celebration you won’t want to miss. What do they have planned to welcome back their friend? Find out when SmackDown LIVE kicks off at 8 ET on USA!
Who will bring the 24/7 Championship to SmackDown LIVE?
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley came to Raw last night to make a major announcement, unveiling the WWE 24/7 Championship – a title that can be won and defended at any time, day or night, as long as a WWE official is present.
It was chaos from there as Superstars scrambled to the ring to become the first champion. Titus O’Neil earned the unique distinction after emerging with the title from a frantic scramble for the championship. However, O’Neil didn’t make it out of the arena with the title. First, he was defeated by Robert Roode during his celebration. Roode, who spent the rest of Raw on the run from his fellow Superstars, was dethroned by SmackDown LIVE’s R-Truth, who hid The Glorious One in the trunk of his car to throw the chasing Superstars off his scent. A waiting referee in the passenger seat gave Truth the opening to pin Roode and claim the title for himself. Will Truth make it to SmackDown LIVE as the champion, or will one (or more) Superstars take hold of WWE’s newest championship?
