The United States Championship will be up for grabs Sunday night at WWE Backlash as Kevin Owens defends against No. 1 contender AJ Styles in a match almost certain to steal the show.

Featuring two of the best wrestlers in the world battling for the right to hoist the prestigious championship overhead at the end of the night, the contest should bring a quality of match head and shoulders above anything else on the show, barring any overbooking or abundance of interference. 

The question is, though, whether WWE Creative is banking on Owens carrying the title on SmackDown Live or if Styles will add to his already impressive resume with the company by collecting his second singles title.



The April 11 episode of SmackDown Live saw AJ Styles, Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin battle for the right to challenge for the United States Championship. The Phenomenal One, fresh off defeating Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 33, continued his winning ways and guaranteed himself a shot at the prestigious title.
