AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal confirmed for WWE Clash of Champions


After dropping the WWE Championship earlier this month, Jinder Mahal is getting his rematch at the company's final pay-per-view of the year.

It was confirmed on SmackDown tonight that Mahal would be challenging for AJ Styles' WWE title at next month's Clash of Champions PPV. Styles came out for a promo in Houston tonight and called out Mahal to have their rematch on SmackDown, but Mahal appeared on the video screen to say he preferred to have it at Clash of Champions.

Mahal said he would have beaten Brock Lesnar if he faced him at Survivor Series and bashed the state of Texas. The Singh Brothers then ran into the ring from behind for an attack before Styles fought them off.

Styles will face both Samir and Sunil Singh in a handicap match on SmackDown next week. Kevin Owens vs. Randy Orton is also set for the episode, along with the return of the Fashion Files.

Styles vs. Mahal is the first match announced for Clash of Champions, which will take place at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on December 17th. The PPV will further set things up for SmackDown as we head into Royal Rumble season.
