    Hell in a Cell Hell in a Cell 2017 - United States Champions AJ Styles vs. Baron Corbin

    Corbin is coming off a cruel summer by any measure, but the former Mr. Money in the Bank didn’t let a failed bid for the WWE Championship stop him from going after one of SmackDown LIVE’s most popular Superstars. For weeks, The Lone Wolf meddled in AJ’s affairs, interfering in The Phenomenal One’s planned United States Open Challenge title defense against Tye Dillinger on the Aug. 29 edition of the blue brand before the opening bell could ring. Weeks later, Corbin savagely attacked AJ and Dillinger after Styles successfully defended the star-spangled title in a bout against The Perfect 10. However, before the score could be settled in a one-on-one title showdown between Styles and Corbin on Sept. 18, Dillinger emerged for some payback of his own, brawling with The Lone Wolf and preventing the match from ever getting started.

    Styles has remained champion through all of this, but his comments about The Lone Wolf’s work ethic and efficiency finally drove the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner off the edge following a bout with Dillinger one week later. Corbin attacked Styles mid-match and, after disposing of The Perfect 10, stated in no uncertain terms that Styles could not defend the title against him one-on-one, leading to the challenge at WWE Hell in a Cell.

    In other words, no shortcuts were taken, and Corbin now has his match. What he does with the opportunity is up to him.

    Tune in to see who leaves as U.S. Champion at WWE Hell in a Cell, streaming live Sunday, Oct. 8, at 8 ET/5 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.

    Is there a good reason this isn't a triple threat?

    They may have Styles drop the title here if they want to push him back into the main event. He's someone that they can put up against Mahal as champion and possibly win the title off him post-India tour. Corbin could do with a nice title win here and then move on to feud with Dillinger or Zayn.

    Part of me is expecting something to go down during the pre-show for this to be turned into a triple threat match. They need to test Corbin out with a title run, and now is the perfect to do so so as they start to plan for the bigger things a few months down the road.
    I have a plan so cunning......

    Called it

    Very good triple threat too. As soon as it was made the triple threat the title change was going to happen. They needed to free AJ up to move back up the card, and it was a perfect time to see how Corbin can hold a down a championship reign so it's a win/win situation really.

    I sure hope that is the case. Styles, and Owens before him have been carrying the Smackdown brand as US Champion since WrestleMania. Jinder Mahal is basically just a mid-carder, so now with Corbin as US Champion, I sure hope WWE is going with a more solid WWE Champion.
