It’s Tuesday, and that means that it’s time for our WWE SmackDown Live preview. With AJ Styles winning the US Title from Kevin Owens this past weekend at MSG, the blue brand’s landscape has changed a bit. WWE Battleground is looming, and his win has changed the plans that WWE had for him and Kevin Owens.
So, what does the blue brand have in store for us tonight??
1. New Champ In Town
AJ Styles is the new US Champion, and Kevin Owens is bound to be upset by this turn of events.
Now, instead of Kevin Owens dangling the US Title in front of Styles and denying him a title shot, AJ is doing the dangling. With their scheduled match at Battleground removed from WWE’s schedule, what’s next for both of these men and the title they’ve been fighting over? I have a feeling, based on what AJ has said in the past, that he will bring back the US Title Open Challenge, and you can just bet that Kevin Owens will be stepping up to get “his” title back.
2. Women’s Title Picture
After Lana got her third shot at Naomi’s SmackDown Women’s Title last week, it’s time for something new. Right? RIGHT?!?!
We can’t see this match for a fourth time, and there are more deserving women on the blue brand’s roster who deserve a title shot. Lana tried, and she came up short. Now, it’s time for Becky or Charlotte or even Carmella and her briefcase to get their turn in the spotlight.
