WWE SmackDown video highlights: AJ Styles vs. Sami Zayn


With Kevin Owens, Shane McMahon, and Daniel Bryan all at ringside for the main event, Sami Zayn pinned AJ Styles on the first SmackDown of 2018.

Zayn won the non-title match after there was more confusion caused by Owens, Shane, and Bryan on the outside. With Styles having lost in a similar fashion to Owens last week, he got on the microphone after and mentioned that he should just face Owens & Zayn in a handicap match.

Daniel Bryan liked the idea and made Styles defending his WWE Championship against the team of Owens & Zayn official for the Royal Rumble.

Also on SmackDown, Becky Lynch returned to television and was out for revenge against The Riott Squad, The Usos vs, Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin got restarted thanks to the use of video replay, and the United States title tournament continued with Xavier Woods vs. Aiden English.
