WWE Intercontinental Championship: AJ Styles (c) vs Drew Gulak
AJ Styles put a target on his back when he invited the entire SmackDown roster to witness his Intercontinental Championship celebration. The Phenomenal One went on to humiliate Daniel Bryan who he had defeated to capture the title, but a debuting Matt Riddle put Styles back in his place and scored a clean victory over the champion.
To date, Styles has had Bryan’s number but he’s never been able to best Drew Gulak. A few weeks ago, the proud mentor of The American Dragon had defeated The Phenomenal One to earn a shot at his title.
Tonight, Styles will defend his title against Gulak in a traditional singles match.
Can Gulak dethrone Styles and win his first singles title on the main roster?
