WWE is teasing that Styles could win the title on Tuesday night which would mean that Styles go on to face Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series if he loses. In a WWE.com article, they said that Mahal’s “Survivor Series showdown with The Beast could be in jeopardy if Styles dethrones him.”
Keep in mind that Mahal is scheduled to defend the title against Kevin Owens next month in India so a title change is unlikely.
