Jermaine Royster Reporting
Smackdown comes to us live from the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York. As SummerSlam has come and gone we now have new Smackdown Live Tag Team Champions & a new Smackdown Women’s Champion. The Uso’s get their Tag straps back and Natalya has finally captured the Womens crown. Shinsuke Nakamura could not grab the WWE Championship as The Singh Brother once again interfere with Jinder Mahal’s matches. AJ Styles was able to hold onto his United States Championship by defeating Kevin Owens but there was plenty of drama in that one. We hear the music of AJ Styles and the US Champion makes his way to the ring to kick off the show. Styles says this is still his house and he is the work bourse of the WWE. Styles then says he will reinstate the United States Open Challenge and it starts now, Kevin Owens answers the call. Styles says no because he already beat Owens at SummerSlam but Owens says he was robbed 20 years after the infamous “Montreal Screw-job” and it was a McMahon that did it, Shane McMahon comes out next. Shane says AJ won fair & square but Owens says McMahon should have been able to count the pin and McMahon showed favor towards Style and the fact that Shane counted three. Shane says he called it off and the referee decision stands, Owens then says AJ is a joke.  Styles says Owens is a crying little b***h and says he will face Owens tonight. Shane makes the match for tonight but Owens says he want to be the one to pick the referee tonight. Shane & Styles agree but McMahon says this will be his very last shot at the title as long as AJ Styles is champion.
Daniel Bryan is backstage with The Singh Brothers and they introduce WWE Champion Jinder Mahal. Jinder brags about his victory at SummerSlam then Bryan slams him for being a cheater so he orders both Singh Brothers to face Shinsuke Nakamura tonight.
Kevin Owens sees Sami Zayn backstage and Owens approaches him to be the referee tonight because he is the only one he can trust. Zayn says after watching the new Kevin Owens Story documentary he doesn’t really know why they are fighting, Owens then tells him to think about it.
