WWE Champion AJ Styles and Samoa Joe’s personal conflict continues to boil over on SmackDown LIVE. However, the two will take their issues Down Under when they collide at WWE Super Show-Down in a showdown where there must be a winner.
Neither Superstar has cooled down their verbal and physical onslaughts since their raucous contest at SummerSlam that ultimately resolved nothing between the two rivals. And now, with so much more animosity entering into the equation, the two will go at it again, this time at the history-making event, WWE Super Show-Down.
Following a controversial ending to their WWE Championship Match at WWE Hell in a Cell, SmackDown General Manager Paige ruled that the next match between the two bitter enemies would be decisive. Although she deemed the referee’s decision final after a heated post-match confrontation with Samoa Joe in the backstage area, Paige decided that their next contest at WWE Super Show-Down would be “No Disqualification, no count-out, no excuses.” Though Paige didn’t explicitly sanction those terms, she agreed with Joe on one thing: There had to be a winner.
Will Styles be able to get the level of retaliation on The Samoan Submission Machine that he has been craving after all that Joe has said and done to his family? Or will The Phenomenal One’s anger prove to be pivotal, allowing Joe to strip away not only his composure, but the WWE Championship as well?
Find out when WWE Super Show-Down takes place on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 5 a.m. ET/2 a.m. PT, from the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Australia, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network.
