As noted earlier today, Rusev’s Survivor Series qualifying match against AJ Styles for next week’s episode of SmackDown Live is off and Styles will be facing Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship instead.
Styles took to his Twitter account to react to the announcement, writing, “I’m sure he’ll bring his two cronies…I’ll bring a Phenomenal Forearm and a Styles Clash. #AndNew #SDLive”
Rusev also reacted to the news and indicated that he’s in the traditional 5 vs. 5 Survivor Series match by default. He wrote, “I’m so good. @AJStylesOrg already quit. Hahahahahah. Go team Smackdown. #RusevDay is coming to #SurvivorSeries”
