AJ Styles books WWE Championship Match vs Drew McIntyre at WWE TLC after emerging victorious in the “Sudden Death” triple threat match.
AJ Styles, Riddle and Keith Lee won their respective qualifying matches last week. The three took on each other in a triple threat match this week billed as ‘Sudden Death’, which was just a regular triple threat match hyped and advertised as something more.
Regardless, however, this was a sweet clash many fans could not wait to see and it did not disappoint. There is no doubt the match could have been better but it was amazing for free TV. Three men, who were partners merely 8 days back, gave it all in the ring to emerge as Drew McIntyre’s new challenger for the WWE Championship.

The WWE have been very careful with Keith Lee. He is yet to suffer a clean loss on the main roster. It was unlikely that he would pick the win. McIntyre just lost at Survivor Series to Roman Reigns and needs a proper win to lift him up.
With Riddle not a believable challenger to McIntyre at the moment, it was Styles who picked the win and he did so by pinning Riddle. In exchange, Riddle was made to shine in the match even knocking Lee out of the ring. This allowed Styles to hit him with the Phenomenal Forearm and book a date with McIntyre for the WWE Championship.

Styles has won the WWE Championship twice in his career before but it has been a considerable amount of time since he last held the title. This is a fresh match up in the WWE between two exciting stars and could very well steal the show.
