AJ Styles is the current WWE Champion and he has Rusev to worry about at Extreme Rules. Now it looks like he has a big match on SmackDown Live this week as well.
Rusev will have to wait because WWE just announced that AJ Styles will be facing Shinsuke Nakamura this week. This is not announced as a championship match either but it will certainly give them a chance to rekindle their feud.
Nakamura and Styles just wrapped up a program where Nakamura chased AJ’s WWE Championship. His low-blowing tactics didn’t help him gain the WWE Championship in the end, but he will have a chance to get a little bit of revenge.
Only time will tell how this plays out, but fans will have a big reason to tune into WWE SmackDown Live this week. We’ll have to tune in to see if they add any more interesting aspects to this match.
