AJ Styles and Sami Zayn went one-on-one on the 9/18 episode of SmackDown. Styles defeated Zayn in Zayn’s first match since he went on hiatus from WWE following WrestleMania 36. After their match, both men were attacked by Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy who proposed the idea of a three-way ladder match at Clash of Champions on 9/27 for the title. Hardy is scheduled to appear on Talking Smack on 9/19 to discuss his proposal.
Sasha Banks did an interview from the Performance Center to address her storyline injury after being ambushed by Bayley several weeks ago. Banks was hit from behind by Bayley during the interview and Bayley attempted to use a chair around Banks’ neck again.
