AJ Styles is to have his first televised match in three months against Solo Sikoa on Friday’s edition of SmackDown.

Styles returned to WWE last week, attacking both The Bloodline and LA Knight during the main event.

The match with Sikoa is Styles’ first since September 15th, when he lost to Finn Balor.

Styles was written off television on the September 22nd episode of SmackDown in a backstage attack by Sikoa and Jimmy Uso.
