AJ Styles Wins US Championship at MSG Live Event

Pro Wrestling Post

AJ Styles US Champion

WWE held a cross-brand live event in Madison Square Garden tonight that saw a rare title change at a house show as AJ Styles knocked off Kevin Owens to become the new United States Champion.

AJ won the Independence Day Battle Royal on Tuesday’s Smackdown Live, and that was supposed to grant AJ a title shot at the Battleground pay-per-view event. It would seem that match will probably still happen, just now it’ll be Kevin Owens’ rematch.

AJ Styles had this to say after winning the championship:

Smith’s Sentiment: I really wish WWE would show some of these events on the Network, be it live or filmed and shown on a delay. Not every house show obviously, but certain ones like MSG cross-brand events or certain over-seas shows could be a cool little extra for the Network. Nothing that would need to be hyped up or built towards, just a house show randomly shown on the Network.

As for the title change, I dig it. It’s always nice to make things a little unpredictable, and making the live events seem like they matter is always a nice touch.
