WWE Smackdown 5/29 Show Preview
This week on WWE Smackdown, both semi-final matches of the Intercontinental Championship tournament will be taking place. Again, the tournament is being held due to former IC Champion, Sami Zayn, not being able to compete. The first round of the tournament was entertaining yet somewhat predictable. One of the semi-final matches looks predictable, however the other match will be a show-stealer. The Smackdown side of Backlash, the next WWE pay per view, will also start to take shape on this episode.
AJ Styles vs. Elias – Semi-Finals Of Intercontinental Championship Tournament
Out of the four men remaining in this tournament, AJ Styles is the favorite to win while Elias is the least likely. AJ Styles was traded to Smackdown from Raw last week in one of the most peculiar, lop-sided trades in WWE history. One of the biggest stars on the WWE roster was traded for a superstar to be named later. Styles is in the tournament to win it.
WWE wouldn’t make a move that big for it to not mean anything. While Elias has his fans and seems to be building a little momentum, he has been on the main roster for years and has never really been a credible challenger for any title. He is a good “hand” for the company but will never be the guy the company goes to for a big program. Elias will put up a good fight but AJ Styles wins this match to move onto the finals.
Jeff Hardy vs. Daniel Bryan – Semi-Finals Of Intercontinental Championship Tournament
Daniel Bryan and Jeff Hardy have each held almost every title in WWE history and are two of the most decorated stars in the company. On Smackdown Friday night, they will go one on one to see who will advance to the finals of this tournament. This is a match could headline almost any wrestling pay per view without any complaints from fans.
Both men are fan favorites so this is a win-win for fans. And if my prediction of AJ Styles winning his semi-final match is correct, it will lead to another huge match as Styles versus Bryan or Hardy is another pay per view main event quality match. This bout could go either way but with Bryan not currently having a path on Smackdown and Hardy potentially still feuding with Sheamus, Bryan winning might be the route to go.
