WWE Smackdown: AJ Styles defends U.S. title against Kevin Owens

  • WWE rumors spoilers new favorite to win championship Sunday

Ideally, Styles will end up doing the open challenge gimmick as he mentioned early in the show. Styles interrupts and says that he doesn't care; he wants to have the match against Kevin Owens. Owens wanted a special referee and Styles was fine with it because he can beat him and it doesn't matter to him who the referee is.

But Styles recovered and had Owens in a submission hold and Owens tapped out but McMahon wasn't on hold to see the him tap. This led to McMahon walking out. She said the "let" Natalya have her moment at SummerSlam but when the time is right she will trade in her contract for the championship.

Corbin, however, was pulled out of the ring by McMahon after he missed a low-blow by Owens, leaving McMahon again to officiate. Owens showed footage of him pinning Styles, but the decision was overruled due to Styles' foot being on the bottom rope. McMahon said that his decision stands. The general manager said all he saw was a champion who can't win without the Singhs, so Mahal called Bryan a xenophobe.

The Usos def. The Hype Bros via pinfall: Zach Ryder and Mojo Rawley certainly got their fair share of offense and were put over for most of the match, but a quick distraction by Jey Uso allowed Jimmy Uso to hit a superkick on a kneeling Ryder for the win. Corbin offers to ref the match as long as he gets first dibs at a title shot if Owens walks out as champion. This ended the segment.

Randy Orton vanishing for no logical reason seemed very surprising; to see the WWE ignore wrestlers who provided matches at one of your biggest pay-per-views with no logical reason given, was disappointing. Especially on a SmackDown Live brand that has little in the way of quality singles heels beyond Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens and Baron Corbin. Bryan booked Shinsuke Nakamura against The Singh Brothers tonight.

Backstage - Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn: Owens approached Zayn, saying he was hoping to find him backstage. Renee Young arrived for a post-match interview, and after congratulating the SmackDown hierarchy for "breaking the bank for the hottest free agent in sports entertainment today", Roode claimed that SD had "gone from being great, to being absolutely glorious".

They cut to the locker room area and Lana is on the phone.
