AJ Styles sets up phenomenal final against Rollins for World Heavyweight title

AJ Styles will be taking on Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight title at Night of Champions after the former WWE champion defeated Bobby Lashley in the main event of Smackdown last night.

In his first match, Styles beat Edge and Rey Mysterio in the triple threat match and that was followed by Bobby Lashley beating Sheamus and Austin Theory in the second triple threat match. Lashley was busted open in his match and bled heavily on his way to the win.

The main event then featured Styles and Lashley, with Styles winning the match with his Phenomenal Forearm.

Styles has just returned from a four-month layoff having broke his ankle in late December.

The WWE World Heavyweight title is a Raw property so if Styles wins he will be moved to the red brand.
