Here's Jinder Mahal to brag about what he did on Sunday. And speaking if cashing in, will Baron Corbin cash in the Money in the Bank before SummerSlam? Here are the latest "SmackDown" results for July 25th from Richmond, Virginia. He doesn't feel the hicks in Richmond deserve to see him perform. Styles' music hit, and he immediately demanded a rematch. Kevin Owens is stunned. Before losing the title tonight, Owens had announced that his US Title Open Challenges would return next week. Jericho says AJ is butting in line ahead of him, and do you know what happens when you try to cut in front of Y2J? Owens walks back up the ramp, but stops when Shane McMahon makes his entrance. The triple threat match featured plenty of action with all three competitors gaining an advantage at different times in the match. And that match is happening tonight!
Shinsuke Nakamura def. Baron Corbin via pinfall: In a physical match that was significantly better than their showdown at Battleground, Nakamura got in a slew of offense on Corbin and eventually hit Kinshasa for the 1-2-3. Corbin makes a U-turn outside the ring, but Nakamura ducks the clothesline and lands a one legged drop kick. A big kick to the head is countered with a chokebreaker, followed by some hard knees to the ribs. As Natalya stepped away, Carmella entered to remind Naomi she's always watching her. Nattie doesn't want to her about disrespect, because Naomi is disrespecting the title as we speak.
Tamina looks frustrated with Lana and leaves on her own. It's off to Lana for a chinlock before pulling Becky down to the mat by the hair.
The ladies of the Smackdown locker room were up next, as the team of Tamina and Lana found themselves outmatched by Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. We get the YOU CAN'T WRESTLE chants before it's off to Tamina, who allows the hot tag to Charlotte. Tamina comes back with a superkick then Lana tags in.
What lies ahead now for the champion, as now he will focus on SummerSlam? On nights like this, I miss Talking Smack. As expected, John Cena answers the call. Cena arrived out and said they hadn't been properly introduced. Cena also gives Mahal the heads up that he is coming for that title. Cena will take on Shinsuke Nakamura next week with the victor going to SummerSlam. McMahon promised both would get their opportunity at Owens' title in a triple threat match tonight.
Jericho made it known that he came back for his United States Title rematch before adding Styles to The List for arguing about who was due a rematch first. Everything he does is for the fans.
Fifth Harmony announce title and release date of brand new album
It will also feature Skrillex , Monsters & Strangerz, Harmony Samuels , Sebastian Kole , Dreamlab , and Poo Bear . The girl group and rapper had previously only performed the song together once before, on Good Morning America.
A Helluva Kick from Sami Zayn to Mike Kanellis quickly wrapped up this match.
The Usos laid out New Day and talked some trash before leaving the scene. We cut to the stage where we see The Usos attacking The New Day from behind. Could Cena be eying another run with the WWE Championship? I would be surprised if Cena wins clean over Nakamura next week, which means Nakamura's SummerSlam opponent will likely provide a distraction somehow. Styles got back in the ring to toss Owens out and then covered Jericho for the pinfall victory.
It looks like Jericho's vest is literally Christmas lights. Jinder demands to know who's next for him and who he'll be facing at SummerSlam.
The finish of the match was awkward, which saw Owens roll Styles over while in the Crossface as a groggy referee counted three. Styles locks in the Calf Crusher, but Jericho breaks it up with a Lionsault. Owens goes up top an hits the frogsplash on Jericho, but AJ throws Owens outside before he can pin. KO breaks it up, but Jericho is able to lock in the Walls on the champ. AJ kicks out of the pin attempt. Owens connects with a Pop-up Powerbomb on Y2J, but the legend will not die! Owens hits the cannonball splash on AJ then on Jericho.
Owens climbs up top and connects with a splash. AJ wins the United States title. After the match, Owens went nuts both at ringside and on the mic. Owens says he wants his rematch next week, one on one.
