WWE Live Event Results (7/9/17) – Hildalgo, TX
Thanks to rajah.com reader Nicholas Cannella for sending this in:
The original advertised card was Orton vs Mahal for the WWE Title and Styles vs Owens for the U.S Title. They removed Orton from the lineup a month ago and changed the Double Main Event to Styles vs Mahal for WWE Title and Owens vs Zayn vs Corbin for the U.S. Now with Styles beating Owens to Win the U.S Title two nights ago at the MSG House Show, the card was changed at the show to Styles vs Owens vs Corbin and Mahal vs Zayn. As always card is subject to change.
