Kevin Owens loses US title match to AJ Styles in controversial fashion

Kevin Owens lost the United States championship to AJ Styles on last week’s episode of SmackDown Live despite the fact that he was never pinned. He can blame Chris Jericho for that.

This week, he got his rematch.

Some of the action:

Also this, which is just the prettiest thing you’ll see in a wrestling ring:

Toward the end, right when it got good, they did a ref bump, with Owens accidentally punching the official. He immediately went into a superkick to a downed Styles then tried a Pop Up Powerbomb. Styles countered that into a roll up, one the referee counted despite the fact that Owens clearly had his shoulder up.

The referee then had his eye checked.
