In the February 6 edition of Smackdown Live, the main event saw two men who were destined to fight forever, go head-to-head once more in a number one contender's contest for the WWE Championship.

Despite Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn tearing the house down in a terrific bout, a provoked A.J. Styles would interfere and cost the match to end via disqualification.

Smackdown Live's General Manager would then announce a triple threat match for the WWE Championship at the Fastlane pay-per-view instead.


Here are 3 possibilities on how the recently scheduled bout may conclude in A.J. Styles retaining his title

From a booking perspective, it remains certain that WWE should allow Styles to come into WrestleMania looking as strong as ever.

Given enough time, these three men may put on a brilliant wrestling match. This is provided that they're not booked in a screwy finish.

A back and forth bout ending in Styles getting the upper hand may serve as a reminder of Styles' credibility as WWE Champion heading into WrestleMania to face Shinsuke Nakamura.

Owens and Zayn's loss may also be protected by the fact that it was a triple threat match rather than the previous handicap match at the Royal Rumble.
