Jeff Hardy looks to keep comeback rolling against Daniel Bryan
In the first round of the Intercontinental Championship Tournament, Jeff Hardy proved his unending perseverance, and Daniel Bryan exhibited his incredible technical prowess. Now the two former Intercontinental Champions will put their skills to the test with a finals opportunity on the line.

The Charismatic Enigma shocked The Celtic Warrior when he pulled out a victory, despite a confident Sheamus controlling long stretches of the match. Bryan was tested by his training partner, but the veteran Superstar outlasted Drew Gulak in a display of grappling ability.
Will Hardy keep his comeback moving forward? Or will Bryan’s in-ring polish be too much to overcome?
Elias and AJ Styles set to battle for tournament finals appearance
AJ Styles is officially back on the blue brand. Is a reign as Intercontinental Champion ahead of him? Elias is hoping to sing a different tune when he meets The Phenomenal One in the semifinals of the Intercontinental Championship Tournament.

After being traded to SmackDown for future considerations, Styles announced his presence with a thrilling win over Shinsuke Nakamura. Elias got the opportunity for payback when he knocked King Corbin out the bracket with a hard-fought victory in the opening round.
Can Elias claim another win, or is the tournament destined for a “Too Sweet” outcome?
