• Spoiler On Who’s Scheduled To End AJ Styles’ US Title Reign
According to The Dirty Sheets, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles is expected to feud with Aleister Black for the United States Title in the near future and Black is currently scheduled to end Styles’ reigns as the US Champion.
Original plan was for Braun Strowman to end Styles’ US Title reign, but plans have changed and WWE officials have elected to go with Black (they were considering Buddy Murphy too, but Black was decided in the end).
However, this Title change might not happen at WWE Crown Jewel 2019 (where a 20 Man Battle Royal is set to take place and the winner of this match will face Styles for the Title later that night) as Black isn’t allowed to compete in Saudi Arabia (tap here to know more).
