As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live in Cleveland, OH at the Quicken Loans Arena, AJ Styles retained the United States Championship over Kevin Owens. The match ended in controversy as Owens accidentally knocked down the referee and Styles rolled up Owens. Although Owens’ right shoulder was up, the groggy referee still counted three. WWE has announced that Owens would challenge Styles for the US Championship with Shane McMahon serving as the special guest referee at SummerSlam.
