We noted before how AJ Styles replaced Bray Wyatt at the TLC PPV but as a result of this, the Phenomenal One was forced to miss a SmackDown Live event in Chile which took place on the same night.
Since Kevin Owens was also pulled unexpectedly from the show, the company needed to do something big to fill out the missing star power from the Live Event and they did exactly that by adding Triple h to the show.
The game returned to the ring for the first time since his match against Seth Rollins at WrestleMania and defeated the Bulgarian Brute Rusev on the show. Below is a clip of the match:

Speaking of Rusev, the former US Champion debuted a ‘New Look’ during the show and he dressed up similar to the SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos:

It’s worth mentioning here that Rusev has posted a few photos with the New Day In recent times. So after last night’s Live Event, it’d be interesting to see if he ends up joining forces with the Usos on WWE TV in near future too.
