WWE Backlash 2017: 5 possible finishes for Kevin Owens vs AJ Styles
How is the United States Championship match at Backlash going to end? Here are some possible scenarios.
WWE's first Smackdown Live exclusive pay per view after Wrestlemania 33 – Backlash 2017 – is just around the corner and expectations are high as there are a number of interesting matches on the card.
The likes of Jinder Mahal, and Breezango – the team of Tyler Breeze and Fandango – have been pushed to No. 1 contenders for the WWE Championship and the Smackdown Live Tag Team Championships, while Shinsuke Nakamura also makes his in-ring debut against Dolph Ziggler. But the most anticipated match is for the WWE United States Championship.
The champion, Kevin Owens takes on AJ Styles in what is most probably going to be the match of the night and the WWE Universe is eagerly waiting to see what the two gifted athletes have in store. These are the kind of matches that can make secondary titles such as the US Championship mean something.
With two of the most gifted wrestlers going at it, we analyse how this match could end. So, without any further ado, here is our list of 5 possible finishes for Kevin Owens vs AJ Styles:
#5 Rusev attacks AJ Styles
Fans all around the world were left disappointed when Rusev didn't keep his word and appear on SmackDown Live this past Tuesday night in order to stake his claim for the WWE Championship. While it seemed initially that he was poised for a main event run, his absence this past week has put a question mark on those plans.
If The Bulgarian Brute is indeed out of the main event picture, what better feud for him to prove himself than one against AJ Styles? The Phenomenal One has proven that he can put on great matches with just about anyone and an extended storyline with Rusev could greatly benefit both men.
It seems like WWE creative is keeping AJ out of the main event picture for the foreseeable future and this would be a good alternative during this run. This seems unlikely, though, as Kevin Owens and Styles should be having at least another match or two before their feud is settled once and for all.
