Dixie Carter Comments On Styles-Owens US Title Change, Owens' Reaction

He said that the reason they had Styles drop the title was simply a booking decision by the company.

Kevin Owens lost the United States Champion to AJ Styles at a Live Event at Madison Square Garden on Friday, and now footage has surfaced of The Prizefighter getting out of the ring, disappointed, following his unexpected title loss. What does this shocking turn of events mean for his and Owens' future? So does this title change even count? Nakamura regained the NXT Championship in a match against Samoa Joe in Osaka, Japan last December. Usually, major titles will be traded from Superstar to Superstar on a big PPV, and sometimes it will change hands on an episode of SmackDown or RAW for an additional surprise factor for the show.

Will AJ Styles still hold the belt when he returns to television on WWE SmackDown Live next week?

Kevin Owens and AJ Styles were set for a match at Battleground later this month. There is now speculation that Owens may need some time to recover from an injury, but probably this was just done as a swerve and as a way to make the live events that much more of a draw. After AJ Styles won the US Title, WWE Raw superstar Matt Hardy took to Twitter to say that the title change is best for business. As a result, WWE officials booked the title change to show that anything can happen during a WWE live event, especially at Madison Square Garden.
