AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal championship match now booked for next week’s SmackDown

AJ Styles is on a collision course with Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. All Styles has to do is get the best of WWE Champion Jinder Mahal at next week’s SmackDown Live show and he will get his shot at the beast.

After Mahal and the Singh Brothers laid out Styles on Tuesday night, SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon has sprung into action. Today (Nov. 2) McMahon turned to Twitter to announce some breaking news.

With Daniel Bryan likely still stuck beside or on a Raw branded stretcher somewhere, Shane O’ Mac has gone rogue and is making championship matches with high stakes.

Can Styles overcome the odds and vastly alter the Survivor Series Raw vs. SmackDown, champion vs. champion match?

Update: Of course Rusev has something to say about all of this with today being Rusev Day and all.

Update 2: I mean he has a point.
