AJ Styles comments on WWE Championship victory
As seen on SmackDown Live, AJ Styles defeated Jinder Mahal to win his second WWE Championship. This is the first time the title has changed hands on non-PPV television since Roman Reigns winning it on the December 14, 2015 episode of Raw, and the first time it has changed on SmackDown since Brock Lesnar winning it on the September 16, 2003 episode. This is also the first time in WWE history that the title has changed hands outside of North America.
Thankful for the reaction of the Manchester crowd, Styles commented on the championship victory.
Judging by the reaction in Manchester last night after winning the WWE championship you’d think I was from the UK. Truth is, I’ve spent a lot of time in this part of the world and they have always treated me as one of their own. Thank you
