Shane McMahon is already in the ring and he welcomes everyone to Smackdown. Shane says he would normally be ecstatic about tonight’s main event between Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, but he is not tonight. The winner of the match will face AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at Fastlane. Shane says he feels that Sami and Kevin do not deserve another opportunity but there is someone he respects who does.

Shane brings out that man, Daniel Bryan.

Shane says Smackdown is the Land of Opportunity. Shane says that they listen to all of you each week and you determine a lot of what happens on Smackdown. When you feel that a superstar deserves an opportunity, it is up to them to give that person an opportunity. Shane says that he does not think that Daniel is listening. Shane says that Daniel keeps giving the same two people opportunity after opportunity. Some might want to see someone else who is deserving go after the WWE Title. Do they want to see Sami and Kevin?

Daniel says that the referee made a mistake at the Royal Rumble. Daniel says he decided to make a positive out of a negative. He says that Shane’s least favorite people get to battle each other. Daniel says he was expecting a pay raise.

Shane says not so fast. Then he says he would love to see Kevin and Sami ripping each other’s head off. Shane says he does not like the fact that Daniel keeps giving them opportunity after opportunity for the title. Shane wants to know why is Daniel continuing to give them an opportunity. Shane says he understands what he has done here. You have changed the WWE landscape forever with the Yes Movement. Although you had a similar career path as Sami and Kevin, they are not you. The Yep Movement is a cheap imitation of what Daniel created. Shane says he does not want to allow them to manipulate Daniel any more. More than anything in this world, you would love to compete in this ring.

Daniel interrupts and he wants to know what is it that he is doing.

Shane says it is plain to see and everyone is seeing it. You are living vicariously through Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.

AJ Styles makes his way to the ring.

He says he has traveled more than 10000 miles to defend this title. He has defended the title to the best of his abilities. He can deal with the bumps and bruises. He can deal with the canceled flights. He can deal with being away from his family because he was built for the grind. He says he cannot deal with Management obsessing over Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. AJ says he is not just talking about Daniel, he is talking about Shane.

Every time you make a decision about them, it affects him. AJ says he does not care who he faces. AJ tells them to stay out of the way tonight. AJ says he can handle his own destiny. AJ says he will walk into Wrestlemania as the WWE Champion.

The New Day are playing with pancakes in the back as they are dealing with social media.

We are back and AJ Styles is walking in the back. He sees Shinsuke Nakamura. Nakamura tells AJ he is going to beat him at Wrestlemania.

AJ shrugs it off.

AJ joins commentary for the main event.

Although his victory came with its share of controversy, AJ Styles managed to survive stacked odds, defeating Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn in a 1-on-2 Handicap Match to retain his WWE Championship at Royal Rumble 2018.

Owens & Zayn set out to frustrate the WWE Champion, tagging in and out before Styles could get his hands on either of them. Styles attempted to divide and conquer the two best friends, but the numbers game continually got the better of him.

Owens & Zayn took every chance to use their 2-on-1 advantage, grinding Styles into the canvas as the WWE Champion writhed in pain. Styles finally created separation by clobbering KO with a Pele Kick and creatively using Zayn and Owens as weapons against each other. Styles nearly pulled off the victory after locking the Calf Crusher on Owens.

Zayn was able to make the save, however. In the ensuing scrum, Zayn almost captured the title with the Blue Thunder Bomb, but Styles kicked out at the last second. That sent Styles on a tear as he battled back.

The Phenomenal One isolated Zayn, coming close to keeping Owens out of the match. Before being dumped out of the ring, though, Zayn appeared to tag KO in by his fingertips. That proved to be their undoing, as Styles countered a Pop-up Powerbomb attempt and rolled up KO for the victory.

KO & Zayn were furious after the bout, going straight to SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon to argue that Zayn had missed the tag and was still the legal man. McMahon was not going to make any changes.

A Phenomenal Idea! Since AJ’s WWE Championship win, he has had a few targets to worry about. With Daniel Bryan & Shane McMahon at odds, and the annoying twosome of Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn unveiling their YEP! Movement; Styles has had a string of unfortunate things happen. Mainly him losing non title matches between Owens & Zayn.

AJ knows he can beat them, and he knows he would have if it wasn’t for the commissioner & General Manager.

Styles is seen backstage with Renee Young. He says that he will now refer to Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn as Kami. He says the thought of either one becoming WWE Champion makes him want to vomit. Can AJ Styles gain any momentum before their clash in two weeks at Royal Rumble?

Phenomenal Odds! Last week on SmackDown Live, AJ Styles was once again on the long sing side against Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens. He was so angry that he inadvertently said that he should face both Zayn & Owens at once.
Daniel Bryan granted Styles wish at the Royal Rumble.

Styles opened SmackDown Live with a sit down interview with Renee Young. Young asks him about him putting his foot in his mouth. He avoids the question. He says no the match is not fair, but neither is life.

Shane McMahon eventually comes out and says no it’s not fair so tonight let’s have a handicap match tonight. It’ll be Styles, Nakamura and Orton vs Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn.

This main event just became Phenomenal! Styles was tagged in and set off rapid fire hits and kicks on Owens. During the match, it seemed as Owens & Zayn got the best on the trio. Then fate would have it that Orton, Nakamura and Styles would get the upper hand.

Zayn and Owens would run away, but Commissioner Shane McMahon would stop that as he made it a no count out match.

The trio of Orton, Nakamura and Styles meet up with Owens & Zayn. They were on a roll until Owens bought in a chair as an equalizer. Shane McMahon reappeared and made the match a No disqualification, no count out anything goes match. Styles then runs Owens away with a chair and disappears backstage as Nakamura & Orton take out Zayn with steel steps, a kinshasaa & An RKO for the win.

For more on this start and stop Match, check out what WWE.com has to say below.

WWE Champion AJ Styles kicked off SmackDown LIVE with an in-ring interview conducted by Renee Young. Styles vented about the position Team Blue General Manager Daniel Bryan put him in last week when he placed The Phenomenal One into a 2-on-1 Handicap Match against Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn with the WWE Title on the line at Royal Rumble. Styles stressed that he was trying to keep himself removed from the beef between Bryan and Shane McMahon, but he didn’t sound overwhelmingly thrilled with either.

Before he could continue to expand, however, he was interrupted by his Royal Rumble opponents. The “Yep!” Movement, in no uncertain terms, claimed that they would beat Styles down at Royal Rumble and go on their way to becoming co-WWE Champions. However, their dreams quickly came crashing back down to earth by the arriving Shane-O-Mac. The Commissioner revealed that they would be in yet another Handicap Match against Styles … just with Shinsuke Nakamura & Randy Orton as The Phenomenal One’s partners.

AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura & Randy Orton def. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn

In the complete inverse of what WWE Champion AJ Styles will have to face at the Royal Rumble event, The Phenomenal One teamed up with Shinsuke Nakamaura & Randy Orton to take on the undermanned Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn in the main event of SmackDown LIVE.

The “Yep!” Movement did their best to keep it competitive in the early goings, but then finally chose to walk off and take the count-out loss. However, Shane McMahon refused to see the match conclude in such anti-climactic fashion and came out to announce that the bout would now be no count-out. Shane-O-Mac had to pop in again when KO & Sami tried to get themselves disqualified after Owens assaulted his opponents with a steel chair, leading Shane-O-Mac to declare that this was now also a No Disqualification Match.

Styles retaliated by pelting KO with a chair in an attack that led both men to the backstage area. From there, Sami was left to tangle with Orton and Nakamura all by his lonesome, and he soon became the recipient of a steel steps attack and was driven into the announcer’s table. That all led to the reeling Zayn eating both a Kinshasa and an RKO for a crushing, albeit controversial, loss.

A Phenomenal Dream Team! With his amazing victory at Clash of Champions, AJ Styles has finally put Jinder Mahal behind him. Without knowing who his next opponent will be, Styles continues to put in the work and represent the brand as the phenomenal champion he is. Tonight on SmackDown, he teams with Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton to take on Kevin Owens % Sami Zayn and Jinder Mahal (with The Singh Brothers).

Back from commercial break, the match gets underway. After Orton gets ahead, Zayn and Owens come in to stop it. Styles and Nakamura are on it and ready to end Zayn and Owens. Styles tags in from Nakamura and go to work on Sami Zayn. Styles takes down Zayn and tags out. Styles, Nakamura and Orton kept up with Mahal, Owens and Zayn, especially when the Singh brothers tried to interfere and got banned from ringside. For WWE.com’s side of the story check out what they had to say below!

In a star-studded main event, WWE Champion AJ Styles teamed with Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura to take on Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, with The Singh Brothers lurking at ringside in a thrilling rematch from Tribute to the Troops.

With wounds still cutting deep in the aftermath of WWE Clash of Champions, all six Superstars came in with tempers boiling and ready to pop off with punches. The integrity of the barnburner contest was compromised when The Singh Brothers tried to get involved even after they had been ejected from ringside. The Singhs got a double DDT from Orton for their efforts (just after The Modern Day Maharaja ate an RKO from The Viper), Owens felt the effects of a Phenomenal Forearm from Styles (with Orton adding to The Phenomenal One’s mid-air momentum with a shove) and Zayn was felled by a bone-crushing Kinshasa from The King of Strong Style, who scored the 1-2-3 to give his squad the main event W.

AJ Styles is out next, and the Champ gets a nice reception on his way down the aisle. After formal ring introductions, we’re ready for the match to begin.

WWE Championship Match
AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal

The bell rings and The Singh brothers immediately have to be instructed to get off the ring apron. Jinder immediately pushes Styles back into the corner a couple of times to demonstrate his power. Styles tries to go behind Jinder, and Mahal connects with a elbow to Styles’ face. Jinder calls for a test of strength, but goes to boot Styles in the gut instead. Styles catches Jinder’s boot and focuses on the leg, hyper extending Jinder’s leg and sending him to the outside. AJ is quick to follow, blasting Jinder with a kick to the back of the knee. Styles brings things back into the ring where he tries to make Jinder tap out by wrenching away on Jinder’s leg. Jinder is able to stand and Styles goes in but he’s caught with a chop to the throat. Styles hits the ropes and he leaps in for a cross body, but he’s caught by Jinder. Jinder shoulders Styles and he throws him up and into the ropes, causing Styles to crash out to the floor.

Jinder follows Styles out to the floor and he throws Styles into the barricade hard. Jinder breaks the count before sending Styles back into the ring. Jinder pulls AJ back out to the floor and he throws him over the barricade and into the timekeeper’s area. Styles is slow to recover, crawling out, and Jinder pulls him up and tosses him into the ring. Jinder drives his knee in Styles’ spine, and then drops a knee to the chest. Jinder stomps away at Styles while the Singh brothers watch and cheer from the outside. Jinder connects with a big running knee that sends Styles crashing to the outside. Jinder follows AJ out to the floor and he suplexes Styles on the announcer’s table, which seems to have been re-built after the last match. Mahal brings things back into the ring and he drives his knee into Styles’ spine while also clamping on a rear chin lock. Jinder wrenches back before driving Styles down face first to the mat. Jinder stomps Styles’ gut, then snap mares Styles over into a body scissors. Styles screams in pain, but he refuses to give up.

Jinder breaks the hold and Styles pulls himself up in the corner. Styles breaks out with a series of chops to the chest, but Jinder is quick to respond by whipping Styles into the corner hard. Jinder locks Styles in a modified abdominal stretch, but Styles is up on his feet quickly, so Jinder throws him into the corner and tackles AJ. Jinder climbs up to the middle rope and leaps off with a flying knee to AJ’s chest. Jinder smiles and waits for AJ to stand, heading up to the middle rope once more. Jinder leaps off and runs right into a dropkick from Styles in mid-air. Jinder rolls out to the floor to catch his breath.

AJ kicks away the Singh brothers and doesn’t allow the distraction to let Jinder gain an advantage on the floor. Styles brings things back into the ring and Styles goes to springboard, but Jinder stops him and Styles lands on the top rope instead. Jinder shoulders Styles and he connects with a nasty gutbuster that puts Styles down for a two count. Jinder picks up AJ and he seats him on the top rope. Jinder connects with a big right hand, then he pulls Styles up for a superplex. Styles drops down, and he’s able to counter with an electric chair drop to take Jinder down to the mat.

Styles and Mahal trade right hands when they stand, and Styles comes up with a nasty combination that stops Jinder cold. Styles hits a low forearm to a seated Jinder. Styles connects with a leaping clothesline in the corner. Styles tries to shoulder Mahal, but has trouble. Styles whips Jinder into the ropes and shoulders Jinder for a very quick ushigaroshi. Styles tries for the Styles Clash, but Jinder backs AJ into the corner. AJ blocks a charging Jinder with a double boot in the corner, but Jinder picks up AJ and flap jacks him down to the mat for another near fall. Jinder tries for a suplex, but AJ lands on his feet and connects with a bridging Northern lights suplex for a two count.

Styles connects with a kick to the side of the head. Styles goes for another low forearm, but Jinder gets his knees up to counter the hold. Jinder shoulders AJ and drops down with a shellshock like slam. Jinder picks up Styles but finds himself eating a Pele kick. Styles tries for a tornado DDT, but Jinder throws him off and connects with a huge running boot to the face. Jinder pins AJ, but AJ is still able to kick out at two.

Jinder sits on the top turnbuckle, and Styles connects with another Pele kick. Styles pulls Jinder off the top rope and to the mat. Styles rolls out to the apron and he connects with a 450 splash, but he’s slow to make the cover, and the delay allows the Singh brothers to grab Jinder’s leg. Styles leaps over the top rope and takes out the Singh brothers on the floor, hitting the Styles clash on the floor. Styles is able to pull Mahal down throat first over the top rope. Styles misses the Phenomenal forearm, and Jinder connects with the Khallas, but Styles is able to kick out at two.

Jinder calls for the Styles clash, but Styles counters into the Calf Crusher, locking it in, in the middle of the ring. Mahal reaches for the ropes, but Styles just pulls him back into the middle of the ring, and Jinder is forced to tap out.

Winner and STILL WWE Champion: AJ Styles

Following the match, Styles holds the title high while Jinder holds his leg in pain and inches his way up the entrance ramp.

AJ Styles music hits to open up SmackDown Live officially. He is making his way to the ring. Microphone in hand (The crowd is chanting AJ Styles) He says all he has been thinking about is defending his championship against Jinder Mahal. He talks about Jinder holding his title for 6 months and how we was able to do so with the help of The Singh Brothers.

Singh Brothers interrupt AJ Styles. They say at this time they will not introduce Jinder and show what Mahal did to them last week. AJ says to them he feels sorry and tells the Singh Brothers to come down to the ring to hug it out. AJ then actually hugs it out with the Singh Brothers. The Singh Brothers say that they actually want to be in AJ’s corner, not Jinder Mahal. The Singh Brothers say they are done with Jinder, that he’s a disgrace to the people of India. AJ says it does sound like they have real beef with Jinder, but then AJ asks why they were by his side in India this past weekend? AJ then asks are you with Jinder or against him? The Singh Brothers say they are done with Jinder Mahal. Jinder Mahal’s music hits and he comes out towards the ring. AJ Styles says he doesn’t believe the Singh Brothers are done with them, and attacks both Brothers. AJ then calls Jinder inside the ring as he laid down his title. Jinder stepped up onto the apron, but backed off and assisted the Singh Brothers. The segment ended with AJ & Jinder staring each other down.

Back stage Interview with Renee & AJ Styles

We take a look back at what AJ Styles did to the Singh Brothers earlier in the show.

Renee Young is with AJ Styles in the back.  Renee asks AJ about the set up by the Singhs.  AJ says they are not fooling anyone.  He will beat the odds on Sunday.

Out of nowhere Jinder Mahal attacks AJ and slams his head into the floor and he says that AJ will not be beating the odds on Sunday and the interview is clearly over.

A Phenomenal Comeback! Since beating Lesnar at Survivor Series, A.J. Styles hasn’t had time to take a breather. Jinder Mahal has been a huge problem. He wants his title back and will get a chance to get it back at Night of Champions. Jinder wants Styles to face both Singh Brothers in a 2 on 1 handicap match.

Before the match starts, Mahal attacks A.J. Styles and then it is 3 on 1 as all three beat down Styles. Styles tells the referee that he will compete after he was viciously beat down. With a Styles Clash from the second rope, A.J. Styles wins the match. Here’s what WWE.com says about the match:

AJ Styles def. The Singh Brothers in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match

The white-hot rivalry between WWE Champion AJ Styles and Jinder Mahal continued to escalate here on SmackDown LIVE, with The Phenomenal One taking on The Singh Brothers in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match. However, as soon as Styles entered the ring, Mahal and his cronies attempted to gain an advantage by doing a blindside number on AJ prior to the contest even starting.

And, despite the pre-match beatdown, numbers advantage and The Modern Day Maharaja lurking at ringside, Sunil and Samir Singh were no match for the untouchable Styles, as AJ pushed through and found victory with a jaw-dropping second-rope Styles Clash to Samir onto Sunil who was right below.

After the match, it seemed Mahal was going to attempt to blindside Styles, but AJ exited before Mahal could grab him, leading to Jinder delivering ring-rattling Khallases to both Singh Brothers, making a clear statement that his ruthless streak was far from gone.

Although Styles made Mahal look like a superstar, there were a lot of logic holes in this match with the escapes, spot placement, chicanery, etc. Lots of “Too Sweet” chants and Styles obliges by throwing up the symbol. Mahal with the early heat by grabbing a microphone, only to be met by a thunderous pop of Styles’ entrance. Mahal kept the heat going with a methodical pace in the match in which Styles sold like a million bucks for the bigger opponent. Mahal truly does have a “look” about him that would obviously see WWE find favor in him. The Singh Brothers fail on their first attempt to enter the cage, but eventually find their way in. Styles takes them out initially and gives them Styles Clashes for their troubles, one being perfectly bounced off the cage and into place for the move. They both attempt to escape, but Styles scales the cage first while kicking the door into Mahal’s head, where he was attempting the easy way out.

The Phenomenal One vs The Beast! After a surprise victory over Jinder Mahal in Manchester, A.J. Styles has had one thing on his mind… beating Brock Lesnar.

AJ Styles’ return to the WWE Championship was a Cinderella story in and of itself. But thanks to Brock Lesnar, the clock struck midnight at Survivor Series.

The Phenomenal One’s upending of Jinder Mahal as WWE Champion didn’t only book him a date with The Beast Incarnate, it threw Lesnar on a collision course against an opponent whose tangible skills (speed, stamina) seemed tailormade to exploit The Conqueror’s supposed deficiency: A will that, if you ask Daniel Bryan, is easier to break than Paul Heyman generally acknowledges.

Lesnar seemed to take that assessment of his skills personally, opening the match with an extended display of savagery that included palming Styles’ head as he threw him across the ring, a German suplex that nearly sent The Phenomenal One through the arena roof and a running knee to a corner-bound Styles.

What got AJ back in the game was his “elusive and abusive” speed, as a cocky Lesnar went for another knee and missed, slamming the cartilage into the turnbuckle and opening the door for The Phenomenal One to go to work. Targeting Brock’s knees, Styles left The Beast on shaky ground and began to pick him apart with quick strikes designed to place doubt into the mind of The Conqueror. A brief fight outside the ring left Brock crawling for purchase after Styles administered a series of flying forearms, and a springboard 450 landed a long two-count on the Universal Champion.

Perhaps the biggest boost to Styles’ confidence was that he managed to evade the F-5 at every turn, most significantly when he reversed it into a Calf Crusher that very nearly accomplished the impossible and submitted The Beast. That was until Brock snaked his massive arm around Styles’ throat and slammed him repeatedly into the mat to break the hold. Yet the move did its job, as Lesnar again tried to hoist Styles up on wobbly knees for his signature move and The Phenomenal One slipped off his shoulders for a Phenomenal Forearm.

Unfortunately, what would have been a surefire finishing strike landed Styles exactly where Lesnar wanted him, as a second attempt at the Phenomenal Forearm delivered the WWE Champion directly atop Lesnar’s shoulders, where the ensuing F-5 spelled the end of the match.

The result, of course, is bound to leave a bitter taste in Styles’ mouth and a sweet one in Mahal’s as he awaits his rematch. But if the state Lesnar was in following his victory — clutching his knee in pain, limping slowly into the locker room and regarding his fallen opponent with new eyes — was any indication, it’s fair to say this match played out more like a “Rocky” movie than Paul Heyman thought it would.
