Baron Corbin def. Tye Dillinger
After brawling for the right to partake in AJ Styles’ United States Open Challenge last week, Baron Corbin and Tye Dillinger squared off on SmackDown LIVE, each with a vendetta to unleash on the other Superstar.
With United States Champion AJ Styles watching closely on commentary, both Corbin and Dillinger looked to impress, knowing that a victory here could get them right back in the thick of the U.S. Title hunt. The Perfect 10 brought his all against The Lone Wolf, but Corbin landed a questionable strike behind the official’s back and following it up with a devastating End of Days for the win.
After the hard-hitting bout, The Phenomenal One approached Dillinger in the backstage area and told him he was opening the U.S. Open Challenge exclusively to him next week in Las Vegas on Sin City SmackDown LIVE due to The Perfect 10’s amazing effort against Styles last week and Corbin tonight. Dillinger accepted, saying it sounded “phenomenal” and shaking Styles’ hand.
