It appears that Kevin Owens will be moving away from the US title picture soon and WWE has found the next challenger for the coveted belt currently held by AJ Styles.
Per reports from Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE has plans for Baron Corbin to face AJ Styles for the United States Championship in the near future.
This is the possible reason why Corbin was chosen as the guest referee for the Championship match this past Tuesday on SmackDown and the dispute between AJ and Baron during the bout is expected to play as a seed for their feud.
As for Kevin, it’s being said that he’ll be moving towards his speculated feud with Shane McMahon soon and these two could end up leading their teams to a tradition elimination match at the Survivor Series PPV.
Though considering the reports that Baron has backstage heat it doesn’t look likely that he’ll actually win the title from AJ Styles and instead he appears to be a contestant to keep the former WWE Champion busy.
