The July 11th edition of WWE SmackDown aired live from the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX, and was the second-to-last episode before Battleground.

- The SmackDown broadcast begins with footage from AJ Styles' U.S. Title victory over Kevin Owens at a Madison Square Garden house show last weekend.

- AJ Styles comes out o the ring to kick off SmackDown. AJ discusses winning the U.S. Title at MSG, then issues an open challenge to anyone in the back who thinks they can take the strap from him. John Cena's music hits and Cena storms down to the ring. Cena gets on the mic and accepts the challenge, and Styles says let's get it on. A ref and a ring announcer run in to the ring, and we have a title match.

- AJ Styles (c) vs. John Cena - No Contest: AJ's U.S. Title is on the line in this one. Before referee Charles Robinson can call for the opening bell, Kevin Owens comes out to the stage with a mic. Owens says he's the rightful owner of the U.S. Title, and he tells Cena to go away again because nobody missed him. Owens says nobody wants to see Cena vs. AJ again. Cena says it's not that nobody wants to see him, it's that Owens can't see him. Cena says he's going to run through Owens, then he's going to run through AJ, but then out of nowhere Rusev runs in and spears Cena. AJ pulls Rusev off Cena, but then Owens runs in and takes out AJ.

Jinder immediately follows up with the Cobra Clutch slam for the win after a mostly one-sided match.

- After the match, Jinder gets on the mic and expresses his disgust that the American fans boo him while they cheer that snake Randy Orton. Jinder says they can boo him all they want, but the 1.3 billion people of India know he's the best Champion of all time. Jinder says Orton won't be making his life a living hell, it'll be Jinder bringing hell to Orton's life. Jinder says next week, he's bringing the Punjabi Prison to SmackDown.

- Xavier Woods def. Jey Uso: The New Day and Jimmy Uso are all at ringside. Xavier takes control early on with a big right hand, then chokes Jey over the middle rope.

- Sami Zayn finds Maria and Mike Kanellis backstage, and Maria demands and apology. Zayn says he already apologized and he's sick of apologizing, and it seems they should apologize since they're always in his way when he has something to do. Zayn points out that he actually wrestles matches on Smackown, and asks what Mike does here. Mike takes offense to this and slaps Zayn across the face, then smashes a vase full of roses over his face. Maria tells Zayn that's the power of love, and sometimes love hurts.

- Fandango and Tyler Breeze star in a Walker, Texas Ranger inspired edition of The Fashion Files. They approach Zack Ryder and fail at lassoing him. Mojo Rawley comes over and asks what he just walked into. Ryder and Mojo argue over Mojo eliminating Ryder from the Battle Royal last week. Mojo tells Ryder to get his head back to reality and leave the Fashion Police alone. Ryder says maybe Mojo is right, and maybe the Fashion Police should come back to reality too.
