The task of keeping the WWE title past Royal Rumble just got a little bit more tougher for AJ Styles as he will be defending the title against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn in a handicap match on the pay-per-view.
The match came after Styles lost his non-title match against Sami Zayn on Smackdown last night thanks mostly to several interferences from Owens, Shane, and Daniel Bryan who were all at ringside. Last week, AJ Styles lost his match against Kevin Owens as well.
It was Styles who demanded the handicap match against the best friends at the Royal Rumble and urged the Smackdown GM and Commissioner to stop acting like little kids. Daniel Bryan then made the match official after liking the idea.
