Tonight’s episode of Smackdown is a loaded card that features a WrestleMania rematch.

Back at WrestleMania 34, then WWE Champion AJ Styles defeated Shinsuke Nakamura. The two had a lengthy feud throughout the summer which ultimately saw Styles managing to prove that he’s the better wrestler.

However, that was two years ago and both men have surely changed since then. Nakamura has done something that the 42-year-old has yet to do, which is win the Intercontinental Championship. At Wrestle Kingdom 10, Nakamura managed to beat Styles to retain the IWGP Intercontinental Championship, will the “King of Strong Style” ruin Styles latest plans to finally win the IC title?

In the second IC tournament match-up, Jeff Hardy will get a chance to fight Sheamus. The two Smackdown stars have been going back-and-forth with the “Celtic Warrior” making things very personal by continuously bringing up Hardy’s struggles over the past year. Will Jeff Hardy finally shut Sheamus up tonight and advance to the semi-final round?

Also, Charlotte Flair is looking to avenge her previous loss to the Smackdown Women’s Champion last year as the NXT Women’s Champion will take on Bayley in a non-title affair.
