WWE‘s live event in Madison Square Garden had a phenomenal surprise tonight … AJ Styles defeating Kevin Owens to win the United States Championship.
Senior News Producer James McKenna was in attendance and tells us Owens kicked out of a Styles clash prior to the match ending, but AJ quickly hit the Phenomenal Forearm to pick up the win.
As you can hear in the video below, the surprise win popped the crowd big time.
This is Styles’ second title win since joining WWE in 2016.
Congrats to the NEW face (that runs the place) of America!
