AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe confirmed for WWE Hell in a Cell


As expected, Samoa Joe will again be challenging for the WWE Championship at next month's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.

WWE has officially confirmed that Styles will be defending his title against Joe at the PPV. If it's going to take place inside Hell in a Cell, WWE has yet to announce that.

Joe defeated Styles by disqualification at SummerSlam, with Styles snapping and attacking him with a steel chair when Joe continued to taunt his family. Their storyline was furthered on SmackDown this week as Joe ambushed Styles during an interview and put him in the Coquina Clutch. Joe got on the microphone and told Styles' wife that Styles couldn't come home and tuck in the kids because Joe already put him to sleep.

The AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas will host Hell in a Cell on September 16. Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella vs. The Miz & Maryse in a mixed tag match has also already been announced for the PPV.
