WWE SmackDown Results (08/26) - Drew McIntyre Vs. Sami Zayn, Second Chance Fatal Four Way Match

Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s official results for "SmackDown Live" on August 26, 2022, live from Detroit, Michigan!

The Scottish Warrior, Drew McIntyre, will face off against Sami Zayn. McIntyre is set to take on Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, for his titles at Clash At The Castle on September 3 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. Reigns and McIntyre came face-to-face last week ahead of their match before things descended between the pair. At one point, McIntyre set Reigns up for the Claymore Kick, but Zayn pushed him out of the way and absorbed the blow for him. Zayn has been trying to get into the Bloodline for the past several weeks now and has made various attempts to prove himself to the group, but has yet to be invited to officially be a member. Will Zayn be able to score the win and prove himself once more to the Head Of The Table?
