SmackDown LIVE preview, July 11, 2017: What will be the fallout of AJ Styles capturing the United States Title?
After capturing the United States Championship from Kevin Owens at a WWE live event in Madison Square Garden on Friday, AJ Styles returns to SmackDown LIVE this Tuesday at 8/7 C as the conquering hero.
What will be the fallout of AJ Styles capturing the United States Title?
Friday night, AJ Styles sent shockwaves through the WWE Universe when he defeated Kevin Owens to become United States Champion during a WWE Live Event at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
The Phenomenal One captured the Independence Day Battle Royal on this past Tuesday’s SmackDown LIVE, earning a title opportunity against Owens at WWE Battleground, but apparently couldn’t wait to get his hands on The Prizefighter.
In the wake of this stunning turn of events, what will be the fallout on SmackDown LIVE and at WWE Battleground? There is no doubt that Owens will return to Team Blue thirsty for retribution, but will we see a rematch between Styles and The New Face of America this week on the blue brand? Or will we have to wait until the July 23 pay-per-view?
Will Tye Dillinger capitalize on the biggest opportunity of his career against Jinder Mahal?
As one of the final three competitors in last week’s special Fourth of July Battle Royal, Tye Dillinger was so impressive that he has now been granted arguably the biggest opportunity of his career tonight - a non-title contest against WWE Champion Jinder Mahal.
However, while The Perfect 10 has proven that he can handle the numbers game, will he keep The Singh Brothers at bay long enough to score an important victory over The Modern-Day Maharaja? Will Mahal be too preoccupied with his upcoming Punjabi Prison Match against Randy Orton at WWE Battleground to repel the up-and-coming challenger? Don’t miss a moment of the action as Dillinger takes on Team Blue’s top champion.
Who will gain important SmackDown Tag Team Title momentum in singles slugfest?
If the tension surrounding last week’s rap battle between SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos and The New Day proved anything, it’s that the SmackDown Tag Team Title Match at WWE Battleground is going to be a knock-down, drag-out showdown. Tonight, Xavier Woods will battle Jey Uso. Who will gain valuable momentum heading into the July 23 pay-per-view?
Will the Fashion Police be on the case in The Lone Star State?
In recent weeks, The Fashion Police have given SmackDown Live many … (memorable?) moments, whether they be seeking out Tyler Breeze’s unknown attacker, receiving mysterious video tapes containing important clues or interrogating would-be prime suspects under the hot lights with iced tea and cheese.
But what will these well-dressed partners have in store for San Antonio?
Who will rise about the pack in the Women’s division?
The blue brand Women’s division is more explosive than ever, with SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi standing on the top of the mountain and the first-ever Ms. Money in the Bank, Carmella, lurking in the shadows.
However, can The Princess of Staten Island maintain her edge without the suspended James Ellsworth? And which Superstar will step into the spotlight in the coming weeks to challenge the glowing titleholder at WWE Battleground?
