AJ Styles Defends WWE Title After Smackdown Goes Off the Air, Kevin Owens vs Nakamura Highlights (Video)
Styles Defends the Title After Smackdown
As seen on this week’s episode of Smackdown Live, WWE Champion AJ Styles was blindsided during a backstage interview by Jinder Mahal and the Singh brothers. Earlier in the night WWE teased that Samir and Sunil Singh might be officially done with the “Modern Day Maharaja” after the former champion assaulted them two weeks ago, but it turned out to be yet another plot in Jinder’s quest to regain the gold.
After Smackdown went off the air and this week’s 205 Live tapings had concluded, Styles returned to the ring to defend his title against Jinder Mahal in a dark match exclusively for the fans in attendance. The champ managed to hang on to the WWE Championship in a bout that would ultimately serve as a warmup for this Sunday’s Clash of Champions pay-per-view, where the two are scheduled to meet in the main event.
Nakamura vs Owens Highlights
Also on this week’s Smackdown, Kevin Owens stepped into the ring against the artist known as Shinsuke Nakamura. You can check out highlights from their match below. Owens and Sami Zayn will team up to face Nakamura and Randy Orton this Sunday at Clash of Champions, and it was recently announced that both Daniel Bryan AND Shane McMahon will act as special guest referees for that bout.
