Styles-Joe contract signing segment set for WWE SmackDown


The build to AJ Styles and Samoa Joe's next WWE Championship match will continue with a contract signing on Tuesday's SmackDown.

WWE had Paige announce the segment last night. The contract signing will be for their title match at Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia on October 6. The stipulation is that it's a no disqualification, no countout match where there must be a winner.

Styles retained against Joe at Hell in a Cell earlier this month. Styles got the pin while Joe had him in the Coquina Clutch, but the storyline was that Joe should have won due to Styles submitting while the referee was counting and couldn't see it.

Their match at SummerSlam ended in a disqualification when Styles snapped and hit Joe with a chair after Joe taunted his family.

Raw and SmackDown are both being held at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado this week. Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre defending their Tag Team titles against The Revival, Brie Bella vs. Ruby Riott, and Bobby Lashley vs. Elias have been announced for Raw.
