Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin never started after The “Yep!” Movement attacked them
After SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan ordered best friends Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn to face off against one another last week with a WWE Title opportunity at WWE Fastlane on the line – a bout that saw both Superstars advance to the championship match after WWE Champion AJ Styles attacked and SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan made the controversial ruling — SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon fired back by announcing that the returning Dolph Ziggler would square off against Baron Corbin tonight on SmackDown LIVE. Additionally, the winner would be added to the WWE Title Match featuring Styles, Zayn and Owens at WWE Fastlane.

However, before Corbin could hit the ring to face off with Ziggler in the high-stakes matchup, he was savagely attacked by The “Yep!” Movement in the backstage area. The Lone Wolf attempted to fight back, but the numbers game was too great for him to overcome. Ziggler, sensing he was next, took the battle to the deadly duo deep in the WWE Universe, but Owens & Zayn once again got the best of their outnumbered adversary. However, before they could rest on their laurels, The Lone Wolf re-emerged to get his licks in on Zayn & Owens at the top of the stage. Already battered, Corbin was once again left in a crumpled heap by Zayn & KO.

With Corbin and Ziggler seemingly out of commission, the WWE Title picture at WWE Fastlane just became a lot more complicated.

Following a heinous attack by Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn that called off the Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin match earlier this evening, SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon decreed that The Lone Wolf would face off against KO, and Ziggler would battle Zayn, and if Corbin and/or Ziggler were to win, then the WWE Title Match at WWE Fastlane would either become a Fatal 4- or 5-Way Match. Oh, and if Zayn or Owens tried to interfere in the other’s match tonight, then they would be promptly removed from the title bout.

First up was The Lone Wolf facing off with KO, and although Corbin was bruised from the attack by The “Yep!” Movement earlier in the night, he was also more than a little enraged. Owens tried to use every resource at his disposal, seemingly desperate to keep Corbin out of the contest, but The Lone Wolf prevailed by dropping KO with the End of Days to advance to the WWE Title Match at WWE Fastlane, much to the chagrin of both Sami Zayn (who was watching backstage) and the fallen Owens.

In their hard-hitting singles bout earlier in the evening, Kevin Owens was unsuccessful in preventing Baron Corbin from being added to the WWE Title Match at WWE Fastlane. Now, the spotlight was on Sami Zayn and the returning Dolph Ziggler as they faced off in a match where Ziggler could win his way into the WWE Title Match at WWE Fastlane.

Ziggler, who made it clear that he was only back on SmackDown LIVE with the goal of main-eventing WrestleMania, performed at his best. He looked as crisp as ever, even against the determined Zayn. After a ferocious battle, Ziggler overcame Zayn with a pinpoint superkick, clinching his place in the WWE Championship Fatal 5-Way Match at WWE Fastlane.
