WWE Smackdown: AJ Styles defends USA title against Kevin Owens

WWE Smackdown: AJ Styles defends USA title against Kevin Owens

Yes, Bobby Roode made his long-awaited debut on the WWE main roster. Carr will be officiated the matches for the upcoming Mae Young Classic. Wanting to team up with Gable, Daniel Bryan announced that the new team would have their first match next week on Smackdown LIVE. Nine percent voted for AJ Styles' win in the main event.

Tag Team Match: Hype Bros vs.

Mahal may have attempted to interfere, but a Kinshasa from Nakamura sent the champ packing. He will no longer receive a US title match as long as Styles is champion. The Usos then grabbed a couple mics and cut a promo on the entire tag team division.

On 205 Live, Akira Tozawa will get his Cruiserweight Championship rematch against Neville. At SummerSlam, the WWE Championship match between champion Jinder Mahal and challenger Shinsuke Nakamura ended in an all too familiar sight as, just when it seemed like Nakamura was closing in on becoming the new WWE Champion, Jinder Mahal's backup, The Singh Brothers, would get involved.

Big Ben falls silent for four-year-long repairs
Officials at Parliament say this can't happen while Big Ben is chiming because the noise would damage workers' hearing. The Elizabeth Tower, which houses the Great Clock and the " Big Ben " bell, is seen above the Houses of Parliament.

It's a bit unusual for Gable to have a tag team partner 11 years his senior, certainly one who is in his second stint with the company after a long time away. Corbin and Styles argued on the outside, with Corbin eventually tossing the referee shirt at Shane McMahon. There are some combustible elements that could turn this match into chaos. I assume Style will move into a program with Corbin from here, but that's just a guess.

The Usos vs. The Hype Bros: A minor Hit for a nice television win for the new Smackdown Tag Champions. The team of Naomi and Becky got the win after Becky hit an exploder suplex on Carmella and then Naomi hit a split legged moon-sault on her for the pin.

Dolph Ziggler shows up in a backstage interview and says he will return to action next week. She said "see you next week" to whoever she was talking with. Baron Corbin offered and said that he'll do it only if he gets the first shot at the US title if/when Owens wins. This led to Owens walking out and saying that Styles didn't beat him at SummerSlam, but rather Shane McMahon screwed him out of the title. Lana told her that Tamina's journey to the title begins next week.

Owens then thought he had done enough to claim the U.S. title but as he almost won, but Styles touched the rope to keep the match going.

Part of the total solar eclipse's mystique is its ability to remind you how small you are and how massive the universe is. Today is one those rare times when even astronauts would prefer to be on Earth rather than in space.

Shane McMahon runs down to the ring to yell at Baron Corbin about doing a bad job.

Again it was the wrong place and wrong time for the referee, as he hit out of the ring as Owens booted Styles into McMahon. McMahon was reluctant but he granted Owens the match.

The confusion allowed Styles to hit the "Phenomenal Forearm" to retain the title, leaving a livid Owens in the ring.

Good way to put a bow on the Styles-Owens rivalry while simultaneously setting up a future Owens-McMahon feud.

One of the blessings and curses of Smackdown is the length of the show.
