Styles vs. Riddle for the WWE IC Title

AJ Styles will be defending the WWE Intercontinental Championship against Matt Riddle on the July 17 edition of Friday Night SmackDown.

Styles, who defeated Daniel Bryan for the title in a tournament, will face Matt Riddle, who debuted on the brand on June 19. In his first night, Riddle defeated Styles in a non-title match. Riddle also defeated John Morrison on July 3, while Styles has defended the title against Drew Gulak.
