AJ Styles faced Kevin Owens at an untelevised house show at MSG this evening, and came away with the U.S. title belt:
It’s pretty rare, though not unheard of, for belts to change hands at house shows. For example, last April Samoa Joe defeated Finn Balor for the NXT championship belt at a house show in Massachusetts.
It’ll be interesting to see how WWE addresses this title change on SmackDown on Tuesday.
Here are a couple more videos of the aftermath:
