Ahead of their title match at Fastlane, Intercontinental Champion Big E and Apollo Crews will take part in a sit-down interview.
WWE has announced that Michael Cole will host a sit-down interview with Big E and Crews on tonight’s episode of SmackDown. Big E is defending his Intercontinental title against Crews at Fastlane this Sunday.
There was an angle last month where Big E was stretchered out after Crews attacked him with the steel steps. Prior to that, Big E had told Crews that he wouldn’t be getting another shot at the Intercontinental title.
For the first time since Crews’ attack, Big E returned to SmackDown last week. He called out Crews to face him in a title match, but Crews didn’t come to the ring. Big E then issued an Intercontinental title open challenge that was answered by Sami Zayn. Big E defeated Zayn but was laid out by Crews after the match, with Crews again hitting Big E with the steel steps.
In a post-show interview after last week’s SmackDown, Crews was asked why he didn’t accept Big E’s challenge. Crews said he wasn’t going to cater to Big E by answering when Big E called his name. Crews said he would instead challenge Big E for the Intercontinental title at Fastlane.
