Mahal to defend title against AJ Styles at Smackdown from England

 
 

Smackdown from Manchester, England, will get a rare WWE title match next week as Jinder Mahal will defend the WWE title against AJ Styles.

The announcement of the match came today via a tweet from Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon. Styles wrote that he’s sure Mahal will bring his two cronies while he will bring his Phenomenal Forearm and Styles Clash.

Major title matches and title switches rarely happen on free television, especially during tapings from across the pond since they are not live. Raw and Smackdown will air on a couple of hours of delay next week.
