Thanks for following our coverage of SmackDown Live. It sure feels good to say that AJ Styles is the WWE Champion, doesn't it?
...
So, there you have it, folks. AJ Styles is your new WWE Champion, and he will face Brock Lesnar — one of the biggest stars WWE has ever produced — at Survivor Series. 

Just two years ago, he was toiling in obscurity with NJPW, and he's now in a match with the biggest star in professional wrestling. It must feel good to be AJ Styles. In a fit of frustration, Jinder Mahal assaults the Singh Brothers while Styles celebrates. 
...
A furious AJ Styles then annihilates the Singh Brothers, but Mahal strikes with Khallas when Styles enters the ring. Mahal makes the cover, but Styles gets a foot on the rope. The Maharaja then positions his prey on the top rope, looking for one final attack.

However, Styles reverses and sets up a Phenomenal Forearm which connects with the force of a thunderbolt. Styles makes the cover, and he gets a three count!!!! We have a new WWE Champion which means that we have been liberated from Jinder Mahal's reign of terror.

He positions Styles for another superplex, but the former TNA man looks to reverse it into a Tornado DDT that doesn't connect. After sending Mahal crashing outside the ring, Styles hits a Phenomenal Forearm on the WWE Champion. He then hurls his foe inside the ring before connecting with a 450 splash. However, the Singh Brothers break up the pin.  
...
Mahal reverses a Styles Clash, but AJ Styles connects with a series of kicks to the chest. Mahal then manages to regain control, but an attempt at a superplex is reversed into a calf crusher. The Maharaja eventually manages to make it to the ropes and ends Styles' next wave of offence with a clothesline. 
...
Mahal then throws Styles inside the ring and attacks with a series of knees to the chest. He grabs a chinlock which he interrupts with knees to the back and elbows to the head. Mahal resumes his slow, plodding assault until Styles reverses an attempted knee drop to the chest. Styles wins an exchange of blows, knocking Mahal down and eventually connecting with a clothesline in the corner. Ushigoroshi connects for two.
...
Jinder Mahal throws Styles to the mat and grabs a headlock. He looks to run the ropes but eats a dropkick, forcing him outside the ropes. A forearm awaits him on re-entry. Mahal then intercepts a plancha before dropping Styles on the announce table.
...
...
Jinder Mahal shoves AJ Styles to the mat from the lock-up. He ignores the chants of "You can't wrestle!" and continues to press on. Styles grabs a waist lock, but he eats an elbow for his efforts. Styles retorts with a flurry of strikes and attempts a roll-up. He then gets thrown out of the ring as we cut to commercial. 
...
AJ Styles is out to a huge pop. He's got a spring in his step. He's going over tonight!
...
Jinder Mahal (c) (with Singh Brothers) vs. AJ Styles (WWE Championship match)
The Singh Brothers continue to mock Paul Heyman by calling themselves the advocates of the WWE Champion, Jinder Mahal. 
...
AJ Styles is backstage with Renee Young, and he claims that he will conquer Jinder Mahal before becoming the "Beast Master" by slaying Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. 
...
The Usos look to isolate Gable, but he makes the tag to Benjamin. Shelton fights back, but Jey looks for the roll-up. A spot of chaos breaks out and Chad Gable chop blocks Jey Uso's knee outside the ring, injuring him and keeping him outside for a count of 10.

Charlotte is backstage with Shane McMahon, discussing their plan to defend SmackDown Live from Raw. Natalya then appears backstage and says that she will defeat Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series and replace Charlotte on Team SmackDown Live. Shane McMahon then announces that Natalya will have to defend the title against Charlotte next week. Lest we forget, Natalya got herself disqualified at Hell in a Cell. 

...
After the match, Carmella enters the ring. After teasing a face-off with Lynch, she super kicks James Ellsworth, implying that we may have just seen a break-up. 
...
Lynch gets underway with an armlock, but Ellsworth reverses. This match then devolves into a comical exchange of holds. At one point, Ellsworth shoves Lynch outside the ring, but she retorts with a missile dropkick. Once Ellsworth's resistance is spent, he begs Lynch for mercy and hugs her. However, the Irish Superstar is not in a forgiving mood. She locks in the disarmer for the victory.
