AJ Styles Wins Intercontinental Championship

AJ Styles Wins Intercontinental Championship
AJ Styles is your new WWE Intercontinental Champion.

As seen on tonight's SmackDown episode, AJ defeat Daniel Bryan in the finals of the tournament for the vacant WWE Intercontinental Title. After a competitive match, AJ won clean after a Styles Clash and a Phenomenal Forearm.
