During his match against Daniel Bryan, Sheamus looked ready to make his way into the finals of the Intercontinental Championship tournament. However, in a shocking turn of events, Jeff Hardy came running down to ringside, leaving Sheamus stunned and giving Bryan enough time to deliver a running knee for the victory. After the win, Hardy entered the ring, attacking Sheamus briefly before Sheamus escaped. While we still don’t know what happened with Hardy and Elias, it’s clear the feud between Hardy and Sheamus is far from over.
Now, Bryan and Styles will face off against each other in two weeks for the vacant IC title, which will no doubt be a must-watch match for any fan.
