Hardy punched his ticket to the semifinals with a win over Sheamus on May 22 while Bryan defeated Drew Gulak in the first round on May 15, which ended up being Gulak's last match with WWE. Styles, who went from Raw to SmackDown in a trade, defeated Shinsuke Nakamura on May 22 to advance to the tournament's final four and Elias picked up a win over King Corbin in the first round back on May 15.

The title was previously held by Sami Zayn, who wasn't able to defend the title and so, it was declared vacant.
