At Hell in a Cell last weekend, AJ Styles and Samoa Joe continued their long-running, highly personal feud. 

It's one that began back in July when SmackDown Live GM Paige announced that Joe would be AJ's SummerSlam opponent. 

CROSSING A LINE 

Since then, they've clashed almost every week and at two PPVs - but they're not done yet. 

The Phenomenal One was awarded a controversial pinfall victory at HIAC, despite appearing to tap out to The Destroyer's coquina clutch submission. 

Obviously, Joe isn't going to take that loss lying down - but luckily for him, another re-match was already scheduled well before the pair met on Sunday night. 

ONE MORE MATCH?

On October 6, the champion and the challenger will meet again at WWE's Super Show-Down event in Australia. 

It will be the third PPV in a row that they'll do battle - but according to the latest reports, their next meeting could be very different.

Mike Johnson of PW Insider has suggested that there will be an added stipulation to their match - and it's one that will likely set up Joe finally winning the WWE Championship.

LAST MAN STANDING 

"[It's a] great way to play into the idea that they are going to have a rematch at the Super Show-Down on October 6th in Australia," Johnson said, talking of their HIAC controversy.

"Joe is like 'there has to be a winner, there needs to be a winner. No DQ, no count out'. I’m guessing they are going to have a Last Man Standing match.

"Maybe that’s where Samoa Joe is going to win the title. If that does happen, I believe that’s the first time the WWE Championship changes hands in Australia."

There's a good chance the WWE Championship could change hands soon

Arguably, that's a pretty solid plan for seeing SmackDown's top prize change hands. After all, it would be a great way to get the promotion over in a new territory. 

A NEW CHAMP?

On top of that, it is about time that Styles dropped the belt. Yes, he is probably the most talented star on the roster, but it just seems his run has gone a little stale recently.

Samoa Joe is the perfect man to spice things up - and it could all go down on October 6.
