That brings the show to a close, and we hope you enjoyed our coverage of SmackDown Live. 
...
...
Kevin Owens is absolutely livid. He gets on the microphone and demands to invoke his rematch clause next week. Well, folks, it looks like we're going to get Kevin Owens vs. AJ Styles 1000 next week. 
...
Y2J locks Owens in the Walls, but he lets it go and hits Styles with a Codebreaker. It's only good for two. Jericho attempts a Lionsault, but Owens grabs his foot.

The three men exchange kicks, and Jericho thwarts AJ's attempt at a springboard manoeuvre. Owens connects with a Pop-up Powerbomb on Y2J, but the legend will not die!!!!! What a match!!!! Owens then climbs to the top rope and hits a Frogsplash, but Styles throws him out of the ring and steals the victory. We have a new Champion!!!

...
Styles and Kevin Owens are in the ring, but Jericho recovers to throw Owens outside. He then connects with chops to the chest of Styles and attempts to set up superplex. However, Owens sneaks up and attempts an electric chair which is reversed into a failed attempt at the Walls of Jericho. 

Another transition and Owens is thrown out of the ring. Styles connects with a springboard 450 splash on Jericho, but he can't cover. Kevin Owens thwarts AJ and covers Jericho for two.  
...
We're off to a brisk start. These men are pulling out all of the stops. Y2J and KO have a staredown after Styles gets thrown out of the ring. The two men start to brawl, but AJ comes back and tries to suplex Y2J, who reverses it. Jericho then gets knocked off the apron, leaving Owens and Styles alone inside the ring. 

KO is dominating the former TNA standout and talking trash. He goes outside the ring and stomps Jericho. He comes back and looks to have the upper-hand on Styles, but he gets trapped in a Calf Crusher. Jericho runs in and connects with a Lionsault on Styles and Owens as we head to commercial.

It's time for the main event, folks!!! This one's going to be a doozy. Judging from the reactions to the entrances, it is evident that the audience wants to see Y2J leave with gold around his waist.  
...
Shinsuke Nakamura is backstage with Renee Young. He vows to beat John Cena next week. 
...
...
The New Day are out next, but Big E's opening line stops abruptly. It's The Usos, and they're going after the new Champions with a vengeance. Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Big E are all laid out. 
...
...
When we return from commercial English has Zayn in a chinlock; he tags in Kanellis who hits a clothesline in the corner for a nearfall. English gets the tag and the heels are trying to isolate Zayn. However, English misses a clothesline which allows Dillinger to get the hot-tag. The heels are getting pummelled here. Kanellis gets inflicted with the corner punches. Zayn then makes the blind tag and pins Kanellis after a Helluva Kick.

Tye Dillinger and Aiden English kick things off. Dillinger works over the arm and tags in Zayn. The babyfaces are on top as we head to commercial.

Aiden English does the singing thing before the match, and it's just as cringeworthy as ever. This is a really two of SmackDown's most underrated performers squaring off with two of the worst gimmicks in professional wrestling.  
...
Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon are backstage. The tension between these two men is palpable. Is WWE building towards a match between these two? Don't worry, folks. They wouldn't let a geriatric defeat one of the best guys in the company. Oh, wait. 
...
Just as Cena begins to leave, Daniel Bryan comes out and says that the Leader of the Cenation must earn his title shot at Summerslam. He announces that Cena will face Nakamura next week for the right to face Jinder Mahal at Summerslam. We'd be remiss if we didn't point out the fact that Bryan was apparently impressed by Cena's performance at Battleground. We have to think that Bryan was probably drinking on the job. 
...
John Cena congratulates Mahal for being in the best shape of his life. Cena is also apparently impressed by Mahal's persistence and desire to hold onto the WWE Championship. He then announces that he will face Mahal at Summerslam and attempt to become a 17-time World Champion. 
...
Mahal says that he crushed Orton's legacy at Battleground and that he was never going to lose inside a Punjabi Prison. He then demands to know who he'll face at Summerslam before going on a diatribe in Punjabi. He is promptly interrupted by John Cena. Did someone say 17-time World Champion? 
...
Jinder Mahal is out for a promo segment, and there is actually some sort of weird rug in the ring. If you ever needed confirmation that the WWE doesn't think beyond stereotypes, today is your lucky day.  
...
...
After the match, Tamina yells at Lana and orders the Ravishing Russian to follow her to the back. Things aren't going too smoothly in this relationship.
