- Wrestlezone.com reports that at tonight's TV tapings for Smackdown in Manchester, Shane McMahon announced that Natalya will defend her women's title on next week's edition of Smackdown live.

After booking AJ Styles vs. Rusev last week, the match was changed to AJ Style vs. Jinder Mahal for the WWE Title. The match will air tonight on the USA Network.

Eventually, that turned into a near-certainty to most that Mahal would still be champion when WWE toured India.

The match has taken place - and AJ won the match and the title!

Jinder Mahal was champion for about six months, or 139 days, defeating Randy Orton at Backlash on May 21st in a surprise.

Check it out tonight on Smackdown, and it changes the main event of Survivor Series (for now) to Brock Lesnar vs. AJ Styles.

WWE has been hyping up another champion vs. champion clash between Mahal and WWE Universal Championship holder Brock Lesnar.

That would be an unforgettable dream match as Styles is one of wrestling's biggest names and Lesnar is one of the most risky fighters in the world.

This is also the second straight night it appears the Survivor Series lineup has suffered a huge shake-up.
