WWE has changed its course for the Intercontinental Championship tournament.
This week’s SmackDown opened with a crime scene where it was made to look like a drunken Jeff Hardy ran into Elias’s car in the parking lot. As a result, both were removed from their semi-finals matches scheduled for the show.
Adam Pearce announced AJ Styles would move on to the finals, while a battle royal would take place to determine who would face Daniel Bryan in the main event. Sheamus won the battle royal, but came up short against Bryan when Hardy provided a distraction.
In two weeks, Daniel Bryan will face AJ Styles to crown the new Intercontinental Champion.
