Orton Vs. Zayn And Styles Vs. The Singh Brothers Set For Smackdown Next Week

Two matches are set for next week's Smackdown.

Randy Orton is scheduled to take on Kevin Owens. The storyline throughout tonight's Smackdown was that Orton was so mad about what went down that Daniel Bryan told him to take the night off. Shane McMahon was on the verge of firing the two when Daniel Bryan came out and convinced Shane to let them compete in a lumberjack match. At the end of the show, the lumberjacks broke down and battled one another towards the end of the match, leaving Zayn to roll up an unsuspecting Kofi Kingston and pinned him.

The lumberjacks all piled up on the heels, but Kevin Owens bolted as Sami Zayn took damage from the The New Day. He ran into Daniel Bryan backstage, who didn't fire him but instead put him in the match for next week.

Meanwhile, AJ Styles came out and talked about his loss to Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Jinder Mahal came out and taunted him, and said that he would face him at Clash of Champions. The Singh Brothers jumped him from behind, but AJ managed to send them both packing, setting up next week's match.
