Four nights after Survivor Series, the 849th edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you on Thanksgiving Day from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN. On a special Thanksgiving episode of SmackDown, three Superstars would be looking to ‘feast’ on a championship opportunity as, after coming up short in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament that concluded at Survivor Series, “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose would join “The Show Off” Dolph Ziggler and the man that defeated Dolph this past Sunday at Survivor Series, Tyler Breeze, in a Triple Threat Match with the winner becoming the new #1 Contender for Kevin Owens’ Intercontinental Championship! Which Superstar will earn a future shot at the prestigious Intercontinental Championship?
- The Dudley Boyz def. Erick Rowan & Braun Strowman (with Bray Wyatt & Luke Harper) by DQ after Luke Harper interferes.
- Paige def. Becky Lynch by roll-up.
- Non-Title: Jack Swagger def. Alberto Del Rio (with Zeb Colter) by DQ after Alberto Del Rio uses a steel chair.
- Non-Title: The Lucha Dragons def. Big E & Kofi Kingston (with the Gobbledy Gooker) by Kalisto pinning Kofi Kingston following the Salida del Sol after a distraction by the Gobbledy Gooker.
