This win also has some enormous implications heading to Survivor Series.

Styles defeated Jinder Mahal to win the title at tonight's SmackDown television tapings in Manchester, England. He had been a relatively successful champion, defending the title among the likes of Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton in the time that he was champion.

- As noted, Sin Cara took to Twitter on Monday to confirm that he suffered an ankle injury during the Triple Threat with Sami Zayn and WWE United States Champion Baron Corbin at Sunday's live event in Spain.

Mahal won the title on May 21, defeating Randy Orton and has continued his title reign for longer than most expected.

After booking AJ Styles vs. Rusev last week, the match was changed to AJ Style vs. Jinder Mahal for the WWE Title.

Powell's POV: Join Jake Barnett for live coverage as Smackdown airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET. This is definitely a better match than Lesnar and Mahal would have been, and fans are bound to be more interested in AJ facing Lesnar. The title change comes one day after Cesaro and Sheamus defeated Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins on Raw to become WWE Raw Tag Team Champions. People were not excited about the match, and WWE may have been feeling that they needed someone else in that spot with Lesnar to sell the "main event" of this month's brand vs brand PPV.
