A second title match has been added to the lineup for next week's episode of SmackDown.

On this week's Talking Smack, it was announced that SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits will defend their titles against Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode next Friday (January 8). Big E defending his Intercontinental title against Apollo Crews is also set for next Friday's SmackDown.

The Street Profits retained their titles against Ziggler & Roode on SmackDown two weeks ago when Montez Ford rolled up Roode while holding onto his tights. Roode had done the same thing to Ford when Ziggler & Roode defeated The Street Profits in a non-title match in November.

Last night's SmackDown saw The Street Profits host their "New Year’s Day Smoke-Tacular." They made fun of Ziggler during the segment and were about to make fun of Roode, but Ziggler & Roode then attacked The Street Profits. They used a steel chair to attack both Ford & Angelo Dawkins, including hitting Ford's leg with a steel chair as his leg was up against the ring post.

Ziggler & Roode were interviewed backstage after the attack. They demanded another shot at the SmackDown Tag Team titles. It was said on today's Talking Smack that The Street Profits have accepted Ziggler & Roode's challenge and the match will take place on SmackDown next Friday.
