WWE Intercontinental Champion, Jeff Hardy is done with the Intercontinental title dispute on SmackDown. Two title contenders, AJ Styles and Sami Zayn, faced off against one another. After the match, Jeff Hardy appeared and challenged both Hardy and Styles to a massive showdown at Clash of Champions.
For the past few weeks, Sami Zayn has called Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles frauds. Both Zayn and Styles have staked their claim on Hardy’s Intercontinental title.
Earlier this week, the two Superstars faced off against each other. Styles picked up the victory over Zayn, albeit through questionable means. After the match, Zayn kept pestering the ring announcer to announce him as the Intercontinental champion.
He also continued his brawl with Styles. Jeff Hardy had enough as he took both men out and laid down a massive challenge.
He proclaimed that he was tired of being called a fraud. Post that, he challenged both Zayn and Styles to a unique match. In order “to escape normal”, Jeff Hardy will face the two challengers in a triple threat ladder match at the Clash of Champions 2020.
However, for the past two weeks, Zayn has showed up with his title and called both Hardy and Styles “Frauds.” After weeks of doubting himself, Hardy is finally done with everyone doubting his credibility as the Intercontinental champion.
The champion’s choice of a Ladder Match will definitely benefit him. Hardy, along with his brother, are the pioneers of Ladder matches in WWE. Now we have to see how Styles and Zayn fight in Jeff Hardy’s home ground.
It’s a bit surreal that this match is actually happening. A 3-way Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship against Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles probably would have been my dream match when I was 17 or 18, just breaking in. I am going to really enjoy the moment when it comes. But until then, let’s all take a moment to enjoy this awesome match graphic, in case there was any doubt as to who the real champion is.
