The current Champion, AJ Styles, is set to defend his title against Samoa Joe, while Daniel Bryan and The Miz are set to clash once again, this time, to name the new #1 contender to the WWE Title.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, sources in WWE are indicating the current plan in WWE is for Styles to retain the title in his match against Samoa Joe.

Meanwhile, AJ Styles Tweeted earlier on Friday night that he is heading into Australia not only to retain his title, but to ensure Samoa Joe gets proper payback for “messing with a man’s family”.
I’ve traveled the world as the @WWE Champion, defending it has been my life. I came to Australia to do just that… Joe tried to mess with a man’s family. Now I’m going to make sure he won’t be the same next time he sees his. #WWESSD #AndStill
