The United States Championship was the only title not defended at last night’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. That fact didn’t go unnoticed by Smackdown Live General Manager Paige so she has announced that Shinsuke Nakamura will defend the U.S. title and his opponent will be Rusev.

AJ Styles came out of the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view as the WWE Champion but it wasn’t without controversy. He is scheduled to face Samoa Joe in three weeks at the Super Show-Down event in Melbourne, Australia.
However, before that match happens, he will take on Andrade “Cien” Almas this week on Smackdown Live in a non-title match.
This week’s episode of Smackdown Live will take place at the BOK Center in Tulsa, OK.
