WWE Championship to be defended in a handicap match at the Royal Rumble PPV – updated card

This week’s episode of Smackdown Live was capped off by AJ Styles vs. Sami Zayn. Zayn won the match thanks to shenanigans at ringside with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan and a distraction from Kevin Owens. Styles grabbed the mic out of frustration and offered to take on both Owens and Styles so Daniel Bryan made the match. Styles will take on Owens and Zayn at the Royal Rumble.
