Church of god using smyrna to claim apostolic succession

I came across this video of a guy who tries to use polycarp and the church of Smyrna to claim that they can trace their succession through this church. What are your thoughts and how would you disprove it?

For the record, the “Continuing Church of God” is not the Church of God (Cleveland, Tenn.) that I grew up in. is just one of 10’s of thousands of 100% man made organizations ( they call churches) within Protestantism.

Polycarp was the Catholic bishop of Smyrna. He was a direct disciple of St John the apostle
