Sami Zayn will receive his shot at the Intercontinental championship in two weeks on Friday Night SmackDown.

After winning a gauntlet match that aired on the December 24th edition of the program, Zayn was set to receive a title shot against champion Shinsuke Nakamura.

The match will air on the February 18th edition of the show, which is set to be taped a week prior from New Orleans, Louisiana due to the talent being in Saudi Arabia for the Elimination Chamber event the next day.

Zayn recently signed a new multi-year deal with WWE and is a two-time Intercontinental champion with both reigns occurring in 2020.

Nakamura won the title last August from Apollo Crews and was recently cleared to return to action following a hand injury
