As we saw on SmackDown Live a few hours ago, AJ Styles won the WWE Championship for the 2nd time in his career. Winning the title in Manchester, England also marks the first time the title has changed hands outside of a North American venue. Styles goes onto face Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series, but that's for the thread in the ppv section. The question now is whether or not Styles drops the title back to Jinder during the tour of India next month. Interest in Jinder vs. Lesnar was low by all accounts, so that's a strong possibility why the title was put on Styles tonight. If that is indeed the case, then it only emphasizes how much of a mistake it was to put the title on Jinder in the first place; there's always been a healthy amount of interest in Lesnar's matches, especially over the course of the summer. At any rate, I have a feeling Styles drops the title to Jinder in India so Jinder can come off as the conquering hero in the land of his forefathers, marking it as the 2nd time the title has chanced hands at an international venue. I think it's a mistake, if that's the course that WWE has planned, as it's long past time for the Jinder experiment to end. Styles is one of the best in the world, he's massively over with fans and can put on entertaining programs with anyone in the company so I'd love to see him embark on another good run as champion.
