Last night at a live event/house show at Madison Square Garden, AJ Styles defeated Kevin Owens to win the WWE United States Championship.
WWE.com announced the title change, and had a number of cameras on hand to film it. Styles recently won a Battle Royal to earn a shot at Owens for the title at Battleground. However, with this title change, it’s unclear if that plan is still in place, or if there is something larger going on.
It is rare for WWE to have a title change at a house show, but it adds prestige to the event and truly makes it feel like anything can happen.
If there is any further news regarding this situation, we will report it.
