Stick around after Smackdown for my live thoughts on the "Nature Boy" documentary on Ric Flair that will air on ESPN at 9CT/10ET.
Fans in attendance at the Smackdown Live taping were able to witness history on Tuesday in Manchester, England. The matches comes with the stipulation that if Charlotte wins, she will go on to face Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series.
- Wrestlezone.com reports that at tonight's TV tapings for Smackdown in Manchester, Shane McMahon announced that Natalya will defend her women's title on next week's edition of Smackdown live. Styles will now move on to face Brock Lesnar at WWE Survivor Series in a "champion versus champion" match.
We're expecting official word from WWE to see whether or not Styles will indeed replace Mahal against Lesnar.
-Rusev vs. Randy Orton (Rusev will qualify for Team Smackdown at Survivor Series with a win).
The historic title switch is actually the first ever time the WWE title has changed hands outside of North America. Instead, they view Backlund's two reigns as one interrupted run as champion.
Styles is now a two-time WWE Champion following last year's triumph against Dean Ambrose at Backlash.
