With Survivor Series looming later this month, the tension is starting to increase between both brands. There are several matches set up between the two shows. In light of that, WWE Universal champion Kevin Owens has taken some verbal jabs at AJ Styles over social media.

The two are set to be featured to be a part of the five-on-five match at the pay-per-view event. These are two of the top title holders in the company and it could wind up being a showdown between the two superstars. Styles is arguably the best performer in the business that has experienced a meteoric rise with the WWE since joining earlier this season.
Meanwhile, Owens has proven to be a capable champion that has been a strong performer in the ring. This could be a clash of in-ring styles that make for an entertaining. That said, don’t expect this to be the last verbal jab between both sides over the next few weeks.
