    I think WWE is doing this as a kickback against New Japan, who got a lot of buzz by giving their US title to Kenny Omega.

    I also think it's possible they are working toward an AJ/Nakamura title match at Summer Slam, although I hope they save that for Wrestlemania.

    Come on WWE, you can't have titles change hands on dark shows.

    We invest a lot of time in your product and that ruins it.

    Here's an article explaining why it could be a very effective move:

    AJ Styles winning the US title from Kevin Owens at MSG was brilliant business from WWE - Cageside Seats

    I don't really care one way or the other, but I thought a lot of good points were brought up. The key is publicizing the brains out of this.
