The contract signing before they meet once again.
On the May 15th edition of SmackDown Live AJ Styles & Shinsuke Nakamura met in the squared circle for the fourth time in WWE but this time around there was a power move on the line other than the WWE Title itself and the power move entailed that the winner of their match would be given the power to select the stipulation for their forthcoming WWE Championship match at 'Money In The Bank' on June 17th. Nakamura and AJ took one another to the limit but it was the sly tactics of Nakamura that earned him the victory and the power to choose the stipulation for his fourth WWE Championship match in 2018.
"The King Of Strong Style" teased revealing the stipulation for two weeks until he came to the decision of what the match type would be.The revelation did not come without an attack by Shinsuke as he laid out AJ Styles on the outside. Shinsuke then picked up a microphone and began a count of 10 which quickly became an obvious hint at the stipulation that will be hovering over he and AJ Styles' match in two weeks. Come June 17th, AJ Styles will be defending the WWE Championship at 'Money In The Bank' against Shinsuke Nakamura in a Last Man Standing match.
The two competitors will meet face-to-face next week as the current SmackDown Live GM Paige announced via social media that there will be a contract signing for the title match on next week's show which will be live from Corpus Christi, Texas.
