However, those in attendance have provided images of the new champion. Twitter user Ritamrakshit516, who was in attendance for the taping, has posted the following:

Sami Zayn earned the right to challenged Shinsuke Nakamura for the Intercontinental Championship following a victory in the 12 Days of Christmas Gauntlet match, which took place on the Christmas Eve SmackDown. Coincidentally, that episode was also pre-taped. The victory now makes Zayn a 3 time Intercontinental Champion.

The February 18th SmackDown was pre-taped due to the roster travelling to Saudi Arabia that day for the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event. To view other spoilers from the pre-taped show click here.
