WWE has officially announced that Kevin Owens would defend the United States Championship against AJ Styles at the upcoming Backlash PPV event on Sunday, May 21st in Rosemont, Illinois at the Allstate Arena
After Kevin Owens beat Chris Jericho on Smackdown Live this past week after losing it at Payback, He is now set to face the Phenomenal one at WWE’s next pay-per-view. This could be a good stepping stone for Styles who is yet to get his hands on the United States Championship. If he does beat the face of America in Kevin Owens their match is certainly set to be at a very high level.
Here is the updated card for the event:
- WWE Championship Match: Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal
- SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: The Usos vs. Breezango
- WWE United States Championship Match: Kevin Owens vs. AJ Styles
