We got several emails from readers that attended the WWE live event in Corpus Christi and they sent word that Kevin Owens did wrestle on the show. AJ Styles defended his newly won United States Championship against Owens and Baron Corbin so it looks like the reason behind taking the title off of Owens was not injury related. As we noted earlier on the site, the Styles vs. Owens match at Battleground has been pulled from the match listing on WWE.com and Dave Meltzer reported that it was a late decision to have Styles win the title.
So it could just be that WWE wanted to do something extra special at a house show. Styles retained the United States Championship on Saturday.
