Twelve nights before Battleground, the 934th edition of WWE SmackDown LIVE came to you, live, from the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX. Last Friday at a WWE Live Event at “The World’s Most Famous Arena” Madison Square Garden in New York City, AJ Styles shocked the wrestling world by defeating Kevin Owens to become the brand new United States Champion just over two weeks before their scheduled title match at Battleground! Now that “The Face That Runs The Place” has become “The New Face of America”, what becomes of the scheduled United States Title match at Battleground? How will Kevin Owens respond to losing the title? Also, after a backstage fight between the two last week, SmackDown LIVE would see “The Artist Known As” Shinsuke Nakamura go one-on-one with “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Baron Corbin. Can Nakamura stop the recent wave of momentum Baron Corbin has been on?
