Update on plans for the WWE Championship at Summerslam

Aj Styles

The WWE Championship has seen a long reign ever since AJ Styles captured it from Jinder Mahal. After his recent successful defence of the title against Rusev, there have been questions regarding the next challenger, which SmackDown Live General Manager Paige is set to reveal next week.

As per Cagesideseats, the current plan for AJ Styles is to continue his title reign after defeating the next opponent, Samoa Joe at Summerslam.

The Samoan Submission Machine has been on a warpath ever since his switch to the blue brand and has build momentum to establish himself as the next title contender.

AJ Styles’ total days with the belt reads at 253 days and is on the route to overtake JBL and John Cena.

    Worse than Brock’s reign.

  • Matthew Carter

    They can give him a reign that lasts two years or more, for all I care. Just the moment he loses it, put him on RAW, have him chase the universal championship, win it, and give him an equally long run with the belt. The man is a fighting champion day in & day out, and brings legitimacy, credibility and prestige to the titles.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    He is to better then John Cena that why Cena put him over when he first got to WWE.

    You realise AJ has been one of the best merch sellers since he joined WWE yeah?

  • CC

    Eh, what momentum has Joe built since joining SD? Is destroying a jobber like Dillinger considered building momentum?

  • BrokenBrayWyatt

    im a big styles fan but hes not better then cena on the mic n thats what sells merch

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    He certainly does. Which in turn makes him Cena version 2.

  • Mike the Ike

    Joe should win the title because unless you break up the Bar or have Miz go for it, there’s no other heel for AJ to feud with. Hundred Souls has no business wrestling for that title; he’s been up for less than 6 months, has had no feuds, and is a long way from being over.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    But AJ Styles has more skills then John Cena.

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    No, their turning him into the next John Cena.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I don’t have a problem with long run WWE Champion. AJ Styles is Smackdown best talent he is the that built Smackdown live.

  • Darrin Tyler

    So they are turning him into brock lesner but instead of hiding away and keeping the belt hostage AJ will be wrestling and defending it
