Gauntlet Match Set For Tonight's SmackDown Live; Winner Will Challenge AJ Styles For The WWE Championship At 'Extreme Rules'

AJ Styles will soon know who his next opponent is.

At the 'Money In The Bank' PPV AJ Styles put an end to his two month rivalry with Shinsuke Nakamura as the two men clashed in a 'Last Man Standing' match that went 31 minutes. Styles gave Nakamura a piece of his own medicine by "low-blowing" Shinsuke and putting the final touches on their war by delivering his signature "Phenomenal Forearm" through the announce table to put Nakamura down for the ten count.
