wwe intercontinental title championship tournament brackets smackdown

The brackets for WWE’s Intercontinental title tournament on SmackDown have been unveiled.

The first round matchups announced were:

  • Daniel Bryan vs. Drew Gulak
  • Jeff Hardy vs. Sheamus 
  • AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
  • King Corbin vs. Elias 

Elias vs. Corbin then faced-off against each other in the first tournament match. The finish of the match came about after Corbin destroyed his opponent’s guitar, then got hit with a knee to the face after getting back in the ring allowing Elias to get a roll up pinfall victory.

Daniel Bryan advanced in the tournament over Gulak later in the night. 

As we previously reported, Sami Zayn was stripped of the Intercontinental Championship this week. No official word on why he’s been absent from TV at this point, but he’s been tweeting in character condemning WWE’s decision to take his title.

  1. Don’t like how the WWE is treating Roman Reigns cuz of wrestle mania. I support his decision on not showing up his immune system is not to healthy due to his leukemia. Is WWE ready to support his family for the rest of their lives if something would happen to Roman if he got the coronavirus and didn’t make it. Also the owners are making money but the wrestlers are getting hurt cuz they let them and it stupid.

    Like Roddy Piper said Vince doesn’t care about his wrestlers that’s the reason why some of them like Jon moxley aka Dean Ambrose members of the Wyatt family went to aew wrestling

    The Roman Reigns issue is being mishandled badly trying to erase him like he was never there will not work there is too much footage and we want Roman Reigns back in the ring where he belongs to lose him to another wrestling promotion will hurt WWE immensely it would be like doctor Frankenstein being destroyed by the monster that they created Roman Reigns carries that kind of star power and will make quite a stir wherever he shows up so I really think that doctor Vince Frankenstein should keep the monster in his own lab for his own sake

  4. I hate how they are crossing superstars over not even a full year into the new brand split

  5. I not happy about the way WWE & Vince McMahon is treating Roman Reigns.The man’s life was in danger but that doesn’t seem to matter,just the money means more than a man’s life. He has a young family to think about, but all that doesn’t seem to count. Roman Reigns has done a lot for the WWE in his career & they want just to throw him away. It seems like Dean Ambrose all over again.I think it’s shameless. I will support you Roman Reigns in whatever happens. Don’t give up.

  6. I don’t care about roomen rains. he has dark nipples and I absolutely do not approve of that being shown on television.

  7. WWE as always been about the the McMahon’s what they want to do.hear the thing they seen the forget with our the fans they have love Roman reigns they push him of the week they going lose lot of fans.know metter what they thing he is WWE now it was jhon now it Roman.that all I have to say about that

  8. Vince needs to hang it up the ratings will come up after Vince McMahon is going

  9. Vince needs to hang it up the ratings will come up after Vince McMahon is gone

  10. Vince is as evil as J.R. from the Dallas tv series. All he cares about is money, money, and more money. He drove quite a few wrestlers to suicide over the years. He’s looked the other way ( to say the least ) when wrestlers ruined themselves with drugs. He will step on anyone just to get an extra dollar. There’s a special place in Hell for Vince.

  11. Personally without Roman Reigns, I am no longer a fan of WWE. Roman is WWE so not in include him is ludicrous.
