The United States Championship Match will be called by an unlikely individualWhat's the story? Styles who won the title last week - barely 48 hours after losing it - successfully defended the title on Smackdown Live, amidst some controversy.
After all, a matchup between Cena and WWE Champion Jinder Mahal at SummerSlam seemed like a foregone conclusion a few weeks ago.
All of this started last night on the SmackDown Live episode when AJ Styles was defending his United States title against the challenger Kevin Owens.
The Smackdown management team agreed and granted Owens a rematch against Styles for the United States Championship at SummerSlam with McMahon as the special guest referee to ensure that the same mistake won't happen twice. It was expected to result in a John Cena vs. Baron Corbin Match as reported by Cageside Seats. Back in his time in Japan he was one of the cornerstones to New Japan Pro Wrestling, but to translate that success to America was another story. At the end of the match, after all the replays were shown on the big screen, it was clearly visible that Kevin Owens shoulder was up the entire time.
Jinder, the WWE Champion, watched the match along with the Singh Brothers from a luxurious skybox suite and looked absolutely ready to give his opinion ahead of the huge match at SummerSlam 2017, scheduled for August 20.
Owens, who was challenging Styles for the U.S. Championship, inadvertently hit referee Mike Chioda in the face, causing him to become disorientated. While it would have been Cena's opportunity to get his record seventeenth title and turn into the best ever champion by obscuring Ric Flair, who additionally has 16 to his name, for Nakamura it would have been his first-since forever title shot.
Tuesday night will mark Owens' official rematch for the belt and should his efforts prove unsuccessful, the two will likely find themselves in new feuds heading into the SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 20.
