AJ Styles made another successful defence of his WWE Championship at Hell in a Cell, but he will have to do battle with Samoa Joe once again in three weeks.

Footage showed that Styles tapped to the Coquina Clutch on Sunday, but the referee missed it and counted the pin for AJ to retain the strap, forcing General Manager Paige to sanction a 'no disqualification, no count-out' match at Super Show-Down on October 6.

Despite being a brilliant wrestler, some fans would say that Styles has underwhelmed somewhat since WrestleMania.

A feud with Shinsuke Nakamura was supposed to be much more than what it was, and aside from their bout at Money in the Bank, it wasn't a patch on their matches in New Japan Pro Wrestling.

But if there is one man on the WWE roster who is putting on consistently great matches despite not being victorious every week, it's Andrade 'Cien' Almas.

Styles and Almas squared-off on a previous episode of SmackDown in July, where after a back-and-forth bout, the former NXT Champion tapped out to the Calf Crusher.

But the two were pitted against each other once again last night, and the pair did not let the fans down with a hard-hitting contest.

The result was no different though - Styles got the win, and he pulled-out one of the smoothest reversals in recent memory to do so.

AJ Styles managed to hit a beautiful Styles Clash on Andrade Almas for a big win on SmackDown.

After hitting his double knee strike to Styles in the corner of the ring, Almas set the WWE Champion up for his patented Hammerlock DDT, only for the 'Phenomenal One' to reverse it into a jackknife pinning attempt.

But Styles reversed back on himself during the pin, transitioning seamlessly into a Styles Clash to pick up the win.

You can see the move in all its glory below.

The WWE Universe was full of praise for both competitors following the match, with one fan going as far to suggest he's not seen many counters like it.
