From WWE.com:

 

With their jobs potentially in jeopardy, Kevin Owens & Sami Zaynbegrudgingly squared off against The New Day in a Lumberjack Match on SmackDown LIVE.

Surrounded by a plethora of Team Blue Superstars who were obviously none-too-pleased with KO & Zayn after they betrayed Team Blue at Survivor Series, Owens and Zayn did their best to survive. However, the order was a tall one, as none of the lumberjacks seemed all too motivated to force either Big E or Kofi Kingston back into the ring whenever they exited, but would immediately pounce on Owens and Zayn.

Owens and Zayn got the reprieve they were looking for when Baron Corbin missed Zayn with a punch that instead connected with Bobby Roode, setting off a brawl between all the lumberjacks. The commotion allowed Zayn to catch Kofi off-guard with a rollup to score the 1-2-3. Following the match, Rusev & Aiden English (who Owens and Zayn had asked for assistance earlier in the evening) also struck down on The New Day, attempting to blindside the group and helping KO escape through the WWE Universe.

The New Day fought back, as Kofi Kingston leapt off the top rope to the outside to neutralize The Bulgarian Brute and The Mozart of Maheym. From there, The New Day decimated Zayn with Trouble in Paradise and The Midnight Hour.

Owens, who managed to avoid The New Day beatdown, didn’t fully escape, as he was greeted by Daniel Bryan after dashing to the backstage area. After pleading with The “Yes!” Man not to fire him and Zayn, KO was met with a bombshell announcement when Bryan informed him that he would face off against Randy Orton on SmackDown LIVE next week!
