While AJ Styles was content with taking a free ride through to the finals, Daniel Bryan didn’t want to just accept a bye week, and instead said he would fight off against anyone. With that said, a battle royal was held between a handful of WWE superstars, with the winner facing off against Bryan with a chance to advance into the finals against Styles. During the match, things came down to Sheamus and Jey Uso, with the former coming away with a big win after delivering a Brogue Kick to Uso to send him flying off the apron and onto the floor, giving the Irish superstar another shot at the Intercontinental title.
