The Street Profits to battle Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode in SmackDown Tag Team Title Match
Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode scored a non-title victory over SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits several weeks ago. They then followed up with The Showoff earning a singles victory over Montez Ford.
Street Profits are fun to watch and always go above and beyond to entertain! Most importantly, The Profits are good kids…

Next week, Ziggler & Roode get an opportunity at the SmackDown Tag Team Championships. Will the outspoken tandem seize the titles? Or will their title aspirations go up in smoke?
SmackDown to host Carmella’s Champagne Toast
Just moments after their impromptu SmackDown Women’s Champion Match ended in a disqualification last week, Carmella brutally smashed a champagne bottle on Sasha Banks’ back.

Now, in the wake of the announcement of a rematch between the two bitter adversaries at WWE TLC, WWE Digital has learned that Mella will host a Champagne Toast ahead of the pay-per-view of WWE Network this Sunday.
Don’t miss The First Annual Sami Awards on SmackDown
Thursday night on Twitter, Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn announced that, because the Dec. 23 Slammy Awards were going to be “clearly very biased to highlight corporate favorites,” he will be hosting the first annual Sami Awards on Friday Night SmackDown.
The #Slammy Awards are good fun, but clearly very biased to highlight corporate favorites.
That’s why tomorrow night on #Smackdown I will host the FIRST ANNUAL SAMI AWARDS!
The always honest ‘Champion of the People’, will present awards that reflect the true will of the people! https://t.co/Ci41EQ807K

What will be the result when the self-professed “Champion of the People” presents an awards show that he feels reflects “the true will” of the WWE Universe.
