This week’s episode of SmackDown Live started with a celebration for the New Day as Big E made his return to the WWE Programming but it didn’t end the same way.

Dolph Ziggler made his return to WWE programming during the show and brutally assaulted Kofi Kingston just after his match with Sami Zayn.

Later in the episode, the former World Champion came out again and explained the reason behind his attack, saying that he should have been given the opportunity at the Elimination Chamber match instead of Kingston.

He continued this rant for a while and Ziggler then issued a challenge to Kofi for his WWE Championship at the upcoming Super Showdown from Saudi Arabia.

However, the company didn’t confirm this match during the broadcast of the show, which left fans wondering. The match was finally made official in a post-show interview where Kofi accepted Dolph’s challenge, as seen in the video below:

After this confirmation, the number of matches which have been made official for the show has become 7, which includes a 50 men Battle Royal similar to the Greatest Royal Rumble.

Other matches announced for the PPV include Undertaker vs. Goldberg, Triple H vs. Randy Orton and the recently announced Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon. You can check out an updated match card for the event here.
