Ricochet AJ Styles Raw 6-23-19

UPDATE: It’s official: AJ Styles will face Ricochet on Raw, albeit in a non-title match. WWE announced the match on Sunday night after it was teased at Stomping Grounds:

Ricochet took full advantage of his first singles title opportunity by overcoming Samoa Joe to capture the esteemed United States Championship. Now that he’s titleholder, however, it is clear that he will have no shortage of challengers.

Case in point, moments after AJ Styles, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson invited themselves into the new titleholder’s photoshoot, The Phenomenal One said he would see Ricochet on Raw.

WWE.com has since learned that the two Superstars will, in fact, square off in a non-title match. Will Ricochet rise above? Will Styles end the celebration and set himself up with a future title opportunity? Will the defeated Samoa Joe play a role in the contest?

ORIGINAL: AJ Styles could have his sights set on Ricochet’s new US Championship, if Stomping Grounds is any indication. Following Ricochet’s US Championship win at the PPV, a segment aired backstage that teased a possible match between the two.

The segment saw Ricochet doing his first photo shoot as champion when the Good Brothers showed up and crowded into his photo shoot. AJ Styles then appeared and congratulated Ricochet on the title win, then said he’d see him on Monday at Raw.

WWE has not yet announced a match between the two for Monday’s episode.
