WWE SmackDown video highlights: Two IC title tournament matches

The first round of WWE's Intercontinental title tournament concluded on last night's SmackDown.

AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura renewed their rivalry, with Styles hitting the Phenomenal Forearm to defeat Nakamura and move on to the semifinals of the tournament. It was also announced that Styles has been traded to SmackDown for "future considerations."

Jeff Hardy and Sheamus faced off in a tournament match in last night's main event. Sheamus dominated throughout, but Hardy managed to pin him and move on to the semifinals.

Both semifinal matches will air on SmackDown next week. They are Hardy vs. Daniel Bryan and Styles vs. Elias.

Charlotte Flair also faced off with Bayley in a non-title champion vs. champion match last night, Mandy Rose & Otis took on Sonya Deville & Dolph Ziggler, and the build to Backlash continued with it being announced that Braun Strowman will defend his Universal Championship against The Miz & John Morrison in a handicap match at the pay-per-view.
