Even though Omos wrestled against AJ Styles during Sunday night’s live event at Madison Square Garden, he did not face Styles on RAW in Detroit, MI as scheduled. Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com wrote that Omos had travled to Detroit but “multiple sources have confirmed he left Detroit and flew home before the taping.”
As seen during the show, Commander Azeez issued a challenge to AJ Styles which was accepted but then Styles faced Apollo Crews instead after the commercial break. During the break, Crews told the live crowd that he was giving Azeez the night off. Just prior to RAW airing, Fightful.com reported that Crews was listed as the replacement opponent for Styles.
