New, comments

WWE finished up the second round of its Intercontinental championship tournament on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown from the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

In the first match, AJ Styles — who, by the way, has been traded to the blue brand — defeated his old rival Shinsuke Nakamura after a Phenomenal Forearm in a solid match. He moves on to face Elias in the semifinals.

Later, Sheamus appeared to be in line for the final spot the second round but Jeff Hardy managed to score a rollup pinfall. He moves on to face Daniel Bryan in the semifinals.

Those two semifinals matches will take place on next week’s show.
