As seen on Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live, Daniel Bryan announced that AJ Styles will defend his WWE Championship Title against Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn in a 2-on-1 Hadicap match at the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view this month.
Owens took to his Twitter account after last night’s SmackDown main event and reacted to the announcement. He wrote, “I like how checking on a referee’s well-being is enough of a reason for @shanemcmahon to put his hands on his top superstar. Thankfully, @WWEDanielBryan is a normal person who understands that such kindness and talent should be rewarded. #ThankYouDaniel #NextWWEChampion#YEP”
