Video: Clash Of Champions Ladder Match Winner Will Be Declared Undisputed Intercontinental Champion, Both Belts Above The Ring

The Triple Threat Ladder Match at WWE’s “Clash of Champions: Gold Rush” pay-per-view will now be for the Undisputed Intercontinental Title, featuring current champion Jeff Hardy vs. former champion AJ Styles vs. relinquished champion Sami Zayn.

It was announced during tonight’s go-home SmackDown opening segment, which was called the Intercontinental Title Ascension Ceremony for the pay-per-view, that Hardy’s title and Zayn’s relinquished title will both be hanging above the ring on Sunday. The winner will have to retrieve both titles to be declared the Undisputed Intercontinental Champion. Tonight’s opening match saw Zayn defeat AJ and Hardy in a non-title Triple Threat. AJ hit a Phenomenal Forearm to win, but Sami stole the pin from him.
