– Former WWE Champion AJ Styles appeared on Talking Smack on the WWE Network to talk to Renee Young and SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan. During the interview, he talked about his showdown with Shinsuke Nakamura during the Money In the Bank Ladder Match on Sunday. Bryan asked if the moment made him want to switch his focus from the WWE United States Championship to a match with Nakamura. Styles thinks he can do both. He said why can’t he be the champion and wrestle Nakamura. He thinks the match will happen sooner rather than later.
He added that he hopes to challenge Owens for the US Championship soon because he feels he has a good chance to beat Owens. If you recall, Styles and Nakamura have wrestled each other before, most notably in January of 2016 at Wrestle Kingdom 10 in the Tokyo Dome for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship. Styles came up short in the match as Nakamura retained the championship.
