And after what seems like an eternity, Natalya has finally captured the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship from Naomi. Styles followed up with the Styles Clash and then got the pin to retain the United States title. Especially on a SmackDown Live brand that has little in the way of quality singles heels beyond Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens and Baron Corbin.
Therefore, the decision to extend AJ and Owens was only made at the last-minute, with the Battleground finish changed mid-match. AJ Styles let Corbin know that he could answer his "US Open Challenge" if Styles was the victor, and Owens told Corbin he'd give him first shot at the title if he was the victor. However, it appears that the real reason for Jinder Mahal retaining the title had nothing to do with Jinder Mahal or Shinsuke Nakamura.
Bobby Roode def. Aiden English via pinfall: Glorious!
Naomi and Natalya started off the match after Carmella tagged in Natalya right away and we cut to break. With Carmella at he side, the Queen of Harts engaged in a hard-fought battle and oh f*** it's another angle for James Ellsworth to get involved and come on this joke has long since expired WWE. The team of Naomi and Becky got the win after Becky hit an exploder suplex on Carmella and then Naomi hit a split legged moon-sault on her for the pin. He said that he's been watching WWE TV and he now knows what it takes to be a star in WWE.
There was a backstage segment with Dolph Ziggler.

Ma Foi K Pandiarajan, who is close to Panneerselvam, has also been sworn in as the cultural minister of Tamil Nadu. Panneerselvam was also made the Coordinator of the 11-member party body to steer the party.
They lock up, and Roode clotheslines him to the floor. This brought out McMahon, who said the result was fair and final but had to sit and listen to Owens argue his point. Lana told her that Tamina's journey to the title begins next week.
AJ Styles runs into Baron Corbin backstage. Owens called Styles a joke of a champion. If Owens loses, he will not be allowed to challenge for the United States Championship until AJ Styles drops the title.
They started brawling then Styles sent Owens flying over the top rope to the floor.
Again it was the wrong place and wrong time for the referee, as he hit out of the ring as Owens booted Styles into McMahon.
