AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe added to WWE Crown Jewel

Though AJ Styles vs. Daniel Bryan was moved to tonight's SmackDown, there will still be a WWE Championship match in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia this Friday.

It was announced on SmackDown that Styles will defend his WWE title against Samoa Joe at Crown Jewel. The match was set up in storyline with Styles asking PaigeĀ to face Joe at Crown Jewel after Joe attacked Styles and Bryan tonight.
