The story of Dolph Ziggler took another turn Tuesday (Feb. 13) on SmackDown. Originally booked into a match with Baron Corbin that opened the episode, Ziggler ended up main eventing Tuesday night versus Sami Zayn.
After Kevin Owens and Zayn jumped both Ziggler and Corbin before their match, Shane McMahon booked the four men in single matches with the right to win their way into the Fastlane main event on the line.
Corbin won earlier in the night over Owens then Ziggler got his crack at Zayn. The Showoff even cut a passionate backstage promo before the match.

Is @HEELZiggler ALSO going to punch a ticket to #WWEFastlane?! He has to go through @SamiZayn to do it! #SDLive pic.twitter.com/ZxHPBAdFMk— WWE (@WWE) February 14, 2018
With the match hanging in the balance Sami Zayn hit an exploder suplex in the corner then went in for his Helluva Kick finisher, only to have it countered by Dolph Ziggler with an on the button superkick.
Ziggler would pick up the 1-2-3 and win his way into the Fastlane main event.
