Big E-Apollo Crews sit-down interview set for WWE SmackDown

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.

Here's the updated lineup for tonight's SmackDown:

  • Edge vs. Jey Uso (winner becomes the special guest enforcer for Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan's Universal Championship match at Fastlane)
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Sasha Banks defends against Nia Jax
  • Michael Cole hosts a sit-down interview with Intercontinental Champion Big E and Apollo Crews
