AJ Styles Wins United States Championship At WWE MSG

AJ Styles Wins United States Championship At WWE MSG”

In a rarity for WWE, one of the company's titles changed hands at a house show tonight.

WWE's house shows at Madison Square Garden are among the biggest non-televised events that they put on all year.

To the shock of pretty much everyone in attendance, Styles hit his Phenomenal Forearm and pinned Owens in the middle of the ring to win the United States title for the first time in his WWE career.

Styles was after another championship, having targeted Kevin Owens' United States Title. His first championship was the WWE title, which he won on September 11, 2016 and held for 140 days before losing to John Cena in January 2017 at the Royal Rumble. The WWE chose not to hide from the AJ Styles victory after it was shared on Twitter.

411mania reported that the WWE acknowledged the AJ Styles title win by sending out an alert through the WWE app. This let everyone with the app on their phones know that AJ Styles is the new United States champion.

This might be a rather odd move on WWE's part. Nakamura regained the NXT Championship in a match against Samoa Joe in Osaka, Japan last December. Why rare? Styles beat Owens off television at a WWE Live house show in New York's famous Madison Square Garden arena.

Certainly, though, this does not happen very often, and so it led to some confusion on social media on Friday night as fans tried to grapple with the fact that AJ Styles really did just snatch the title from Kevin Owens, and there wasn't even a way for them to see the match.
