AJ Styles defends the United States Championship against Tye Dillinger
An already stacked Sin City SmackDown LIVE has itself another championship battle, as AJ Styles will defend his United States Title against Tye Dillinger tonight.
Dillinger first attempted to answer Styles’ United States Open Challenge two weeks ago, but he was ambushed by Baron Corbin. The Perfect 10 fought off The Lone Wolf and made it into the ring to face Styles in an absolute sprint, but his overzealousness combined with the savage attack by Corbin left him open for The Phenomenal One to trap Dillinger in the Calf Crusher, resulting in a successful title defense for Styles.
One week later, The Perfect 10 squared off with Corbin on SmackDown LIVE, looking for a measure of payback for the attack that may have cost him the U.S. Title. Despite a valiant effort, Dillinger fell short against The Lone Wolf. However, Dillinger’s performance over the past several weeks earned him Styles’ respect. The champion sought out Dillinger and offered him the fair title opportunity he deserved, and The Perfect 10 was happy to accept.
Will Tye Dillinger prove himself against one of Team Blue’s top Superstars and claim the star-spangled championship? Find out tonight on Sin City SmackDown, live at 8/7 C on USA Network!
