Dave Meltzer speculated on Friday’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio that Kevin Owens may be injured and that is the reason WWE decided to have him drop the United States Championship to AJ Styles at Friday’s Madison Square Garden event.
In an update, Meltzer discussed Owens US Title loss once again on Sunday’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio. Meltzer is now claiming that there is “no indication” that Owens is injured. He said that the reason they had Styles drop the title was simply a booking decision by the company.
It still remains unknown exactly if WWE plans on having Styles defend the championship in a re-match at WWE Battleground. They have removed the listing for the match so they may have other plans.
We will keep you updated.
