The semifinals for the ongoing WWE Intercontinental Championship Tournament are now set for next week's edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown.

Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles were both victorious in their matches on this week's episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown, advancing to the second-to-last round of the tournament designed to crown a new champion after former title-holder Sami Zayn vacated the belt.

Hardy beat Sheamus and will now go on to face Daniel Bryan, while Styles will face Elias in the other semifinal showdown.

It should be noted that WWE also announced that Styles is now officially a SmackDown superstar, having been traded from Raw for "future considerations."

Both semifinal matches are scheduled to take place next week and the rumor is that the winner will probably end up feuding with the former champion, Sami Zayn when he returns.
