Tonight's edition of WWE SmackDown emanates from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida and is headlined by an Intercontinental Championship match between Champion, AJ Styles and 'The Original Bro', Matt Riddle.

Let's see what tonight has in-store for us!

  • AJ Styles Defends The Intercontinental Championship Against Matt Riddle

Preview (via WWE) - “The Face That Runs The Place” will face a challenge from The Bro who is set on running the show as AJ Styles puts the Intercontinental Championship on the line against Matt Riddle.

The Original Bro made an emphatic statement when he defeated The Phenomenal One in his SmackDown in-ring debut. At that time, the Intercontinental Champion would only grant a non-title matchup for Riddle, and Styles was distracted by his rival Daniel Bryan, who was watching from ringside among a host of blue brand Superstars. When the championship matchup was revealed to Styles during an interview with Sarah Schreiber, the titleholder promised things would be different for the neophyte with no other distractions at play.

Are Friday nights about to become “The Bro Show,” or will the Intercontinental Champion extend his Phenomenal reign?
