AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan are two of the top stars on Friday Night SmackDown, and they recently got a lot of people talking when they faced off in the Intercontinental Championship tournament.

Styles and Bryan pushed each other to the limit, but in the end it was The Phenomenal One who walked out with the belt.

Dave Meltzer recently reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan weren’t at the SmackDown tapings last week.

It’s rumored that AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan weren’t there because they were recently part of an in-ring interview with Renee Young, and Renee recently tested positive for COVID-19.

Original plans for the show called for AJ Styles to defend the Intercontinental Championship against Drew Gulak, but plans had to be changed after Styles was pulled from the show.
