Again the United States WWE Championship changes hands. It happened a few moments ago in the latest edition of WWE SmackDown Live , which was very surprising, because the same happened also the surprise return of living legend Chris Jericho .
WWE SmackDown Live (25-Jul-17) – AJ Styles, Champion – Return Chris Jericho
This fight took place because Kevin Owens , who had been crowned Monarch in Battleground 2017 , opened the show announcing that since next week he was back his Open Challenge by the United States WWE Championship, however, AJ Styles appeared to tell him That he wanted his revenge tonight. There came the return of “Lionheart” , who also wanted to apply an old rematch clause he had when he left the company to “heal from injuries caused by Owens” .
Blue Brand Commissioner Shane McMahon appeared to announce to Owens that he would have to defend his prize in a Triple Threat to Jericho and Styles on today’s show and so it happened in the star event.
The evening culminated with AJ Styles as the United States WWE Champion for the second time in his year and a half with WWE. Kevin Owens has announced that he will seek revenge next week but the match could be settled again for the big SummerSlam 2017 Pago por Ver (PPV) event , which will take place on Sunday 20 August 2017 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York .
Connoisseurs, what do you think of the new reign of AJ Styles as United States WWE Champion and so much change of hands of this title?
