One night after he faces Shinsuke Nakamura and Roderick Strong at Survivor Series, AJ Styles will defend his United States Championship on Raw.
WWE has announced that Humberto Carrillo will challenge for Styles’ United States title on Raw next Monday. The show is taking place at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois and will be the last of WWE’s four straight nights at the venue.
Carrillo teamed with Randy Orton & Ricochet on last week’s Raw and pinned Styles in a six-man tag main event. Tonight, Carrillo defeated Karl Anderson in a singles match. The Street Profits came out to ringside during the match, evened the odds against The O.C., and helped Carrillo win.
Styles cut a promo before Carrillo vs. Anderson and said he would love to defend his title against Carrillo tonight, but Carrillo disrespected him last week.
Styles retained his US title against Carrillo at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on October 31, with Carrillo getting the title shot after winning a 20-man battle royal on the pre-show.
Styles vs. Nakamura vs. Strong at Survivor Series is a non-title matchup between the US Champion, Intercontinental Champion, and NXT North American Champion.
