As noted, AJ Styles was a heavy betting favorite in his match against Kevin Owens at this past Sunday's WWE Battleground pay-per-view once the smart money came in. The betting odds are usually accurate when the smart money is in, and Styles was the only favorite to lose his match on Sunday.
According to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio, the correct person ended up winning, however the finish of the match was changed after the match had started. Alvarez said that the finish was changed in the middle of the match and not at the end. It's not known why the change was made, but the decision was made to have Owens win before the finish.
No replays were shown of the finish, and Styles did not appear in any post-PPV interviews. You can check out the end of the match below:
Dave and Bryan didn't have the scoop on the AJ/Owen finish - I really wonder what sources they have now nowadays? pic.twitter.com/XRsY7p0oFa— rovert (@SoDuTw) July 24, 2017
