On Friday Night SmackDown, the brackets were revealed for the Intercontinental title tournament that will air over the next several episodes.

Earlier this week, they announced that Sami Zayn had been stripped of the title as he is not available for shows and has not appeared since the WrestleMania 36 tapings that occurred in late March.

The eight-man tournament will feature Daniel Bryan vs Drew Gulak, Jeff Hardy vs. Sheamus, Elias vs. King Corbin, and AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura.

On Friday’s episode, Elias defeated Corbin to advance to the semi-finals and face the winner of Styles vs. Nakamura. On the other side, Daniel Bryan submitted Drew Gulak to advance and face the winner of Sheamus vs. Jeff Hardy.

Styles is the lone talent from Raw involved in the tournament, which was explained as Styles going for a title he has not won during his WWE career.

So you can just jump shows when you want to go for a title on the other show?

Anyway, hope Bryan wins so we can get a proper Bryan vs. Sami Zayn match.
