AJ Styles to battle Sami Zayn on first SmackDown LIVE of 2018

SmackDown LIVE AJ Styles Sami Zayn match preview
The first SmackDown LIVE of 2018 will feature one truly Phenomenal showdown on the match card.

WWE Champion AJ Styles and Sami Zayn will square off in a non-title match on SmackDown LIVE tonight. The battle marks the first time these two Superstars will face each other one-on-one on the blue brand, though these two have been no strangers to one another in recent weeks.

When the two match combatants last crossed paths, The Phenomenal One found his name in the loss column after a distraction by Zayn led Kevin Owens to a shocking victory on the final SmackDown LIVE of 2017. The result left Zayn & Owens celebrating on the entrance ramp while Styles engaged in a testy confrontation with SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon.
