In a shocker that will surely reverberate through WWE from now until WrestleMania 34, Jinder Mahal was knocked off his perch on Tuesday in Manchester, England, with AJ Styles becoming the new WWE champion in the show's main event. This presumably sets up AJ Styles vs. Brock Lesnar in a champion vs. champion match at Survivor Series, replacing Jinder Mahal.
The title change is the first for the WWE championship since Mahal beat Randy Orton for the strap on May 21. The assumption is that Mahal is out and Styles will be the one to face Brock Lesnar.
While this is the first time the WWE Championship has changed hands outside of North America, the company's top title has been switched on another continent before, albeit under a different name. Styles then connected with a 450 splash for a near fall before hitting the Phenomenal Forearm to pick up the win and and title. "It remains to be seen if Styles steps into the Lesnar match or what exactly will happen".
