Spoiler* WWE Confirms Big Change At SmackDown

John Cena could make a stunning return at Survivor Series

John Cena could make a stunning return at Survivor Series

The following contains major spoilers for the November 7 episode of Smackdown Live. Jinder Mahal is no longer WWE champion and AJ Styles has re-assumed his rightful place as titleholder.

The title change is the first for the WWE championship since Mahal beat Randy Orton for the strap on May 21.

This comes right as another match has changed for Survivor Series, as The Bar regained the Raw tag team titles yesterday, putting them in the spot against the Usos in a champions vs. champions match.

More news: Avis Budget profit rises, lifted by summer rentals

So, now, unless something happens, something squirrelly, some kind of WWE-swerve, AJ is headed to Survivor Series next Sunday to square off with WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal in a non-title match. 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. The assumption is that Mahal is out and Styles will be the one to face Brock Lesnar. In its official title history, WWE does not recognize Inoki's win.

Previously, Styles held the WWE Championship for 140 days until losing it to John Cena in January at the Royal Rumble. The match will air tonight on the USA Network.
