AJ Styles defends the United States Championship against Baron Corbin tonight on SmackDown LIVE
The Lone Wolf has been stalking Styles and his star-spangled championship since the Tuesday after SummerSlam, when he tried to get guaranteed title matches from both Kevin Owens and Styles. When he refereed a title bout between the two later that night, Corbin and Styles butted heads after they inadvertently collided.
Corbin attempted to answer Styles’ United States Open Challenge one week later, but was beaten to the punch by Tye Dillinger. Corbin retaliated by attacking The Perfect 10, but could not keep him from answering the challenge. The blindside attack did keep Dillinger from defeating Styles. Corbin went on to defeat Dillinger the following week, but found himself shut out of the title picture again, as Styles gave a fair rematch to The Perfect 10.
This time, Corbin waited until after The Phenomenal One had defeated Dillinger to make his presence felt on Sin City SmackDown. The Lone Wolf struck, steamrolling over both men before planting Styles into the arena floor with End of Days before announcing his intention of coming for the U.S. Title.
Will The Lone Wolf assert his dominance and capture the United States Championship, or will AJ Styles’ phenomenal reign continue? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!
