In what was a bit of a historic event, AJ Styles defeated Jinder Mahal on tonight's episode of SmackDown Live to become WWE Champion for the 2nd time in his career; it was also the first time the WWE Championship has changed hands outside of North America. As a result, AJ Styles will now challenge Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series in a champion vs. champion match. To get the obvious out of the way, Styles facing Lesnar is a vastly more appealing prospect than Jinder Mahal. If they allow this to be a competitive match, and I think they will, it could quite possibly be Lesnar's best since his return to WWE if it has enough time. Now with that said, let's not get too euphoric as there's almost zero chance of Styles beating Lesnar next Sunday. Truth be told, if ever there was a match that I think could benefit from some sort of screwy ending, such as both of them getting counted out after fighting it out all around the ring area or getting disqualified for getting caught up in the heat of the moment, this is it. What we saw with Joe & Finn Balor on Raw Monday? That's what could happen here, and why they didn't do this with Balor vs. Kane I have no idea but that's neither here nor there. Also, and I hope I'm wrong about this, I get the feeling that AJ will be dropping the title back to Jinder next month during the tour of India. This title change, in my opinion, came about because very few people were invested in seeing Jinder take on Brock Lesnar, which is yet another indication that it was a mistake putting the WWE Championship on Jinder in the first place. Nothing would make me happier at the moment than Jinder slinking back into obscurity where he belongs and Styles embarking on another strong run, but I don't think it'll happen.
