Now according to PWInsider, another match we can expect to see will be AJ Styles defending the Intercontinental Championship against Jeff Hardy.

It is reported that the set up for this match is set to go down on this coming Friday’s episode of SmackDown. This episode was due to be taped last week but was scrapped and will now be taped this evening.

Styles won the title earlier this year in a thrilling tournament final and has since defended against superstars such as Drew Gulak and Gran Metalik.

Jeff Hardy has been feuding with Sheamus since his return from long term injury. With that programme recently wrapped up, his slate is clear for a potential match and title feud with The Phenomenal One.
