SmackDown Results 31 July 2020
We get a few promos to start the show. Miz laughs at Big E and warns him against a singles run. Lacey Evans-Naomi and AJ Styles-Gran Metalik promos follow. We cut to the Firefly Fun House with Bray Wyatt. Wyatt tells us that The Fiend is looking for WWE Universal Champion Bray Wyatt and he will come after him. Possibly hinting to the SummerSlam match between them.
AJ Styles(c) vs Gran Metalik – WWE Intercontinental Championship Match
Styles start the match well, using his power and vast set of moves to dominate Metalik. Metalik tries to come back but fails to get much going. He finally trips AJ on the apron and headscissors him into the barricade as the first significant offense of the match.
They tussle at the top when we return and Metalik manages to be control for a while. Styles starts working on his leg to setup for the Calf Crusher. Metalik uses his high flying moves to get a few close counts. AJ gets the win in the end with a submission after putting Metalik in the Calf Crusher.
Winner – AJ Styles(retains the title)
