That makes sense when you think that the last match between them neither were standing.
 
If the same situation is booked again, both can stay down a couple of minutes if they want and the ref can't stop it.
 
I hope the next time they face eachother is the last time, as we don't want to get sick of seeing them against eachother by it happening too often.

Yeah im not sure how this stipulation helps any, given as you said, in their last match the same outcome would have been entirely possible in a last man standing match.

They need to have the stipulation as no holds barred - there must be a winner or something written out as clearly so people know theres going to be a finish.

To be honest draws every now and then arent a bad thing it just so happens thst with this particular feud, people have been let down far too often already that it just didnt seem liek the right thing to do.

Couldn't agree more there. I'm fine with a draw, but 1: I really do not want to be surprised by the finish, and 2: I don't want it to occur during a match where it already seems like something like that just shouldn't happen, even if technically it can. 3: I also really wouldn't want to see it happen at a PPV except in very specific circumstances. Leave the draws for Raw/Smackdown.

So again, these 2 having a match to decide what kinda match they will have. This will be maybe the 4th or 5th in a row ? Well , why not I mean Brock and Roman will wrestle again why not these 2. Sad though, AJ is now only recognized as WWE champion , when before the joke of the Universal Title he was the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

It's overkill. Roman Reigns got robbed of the title at the Oil Rumble, but can't get another title shot. Nakamura is I think 0 and 5 in title matches since Summerslam and he's got a sixth shot at becoming champion.
 
Quote Renee Young interviewed AJ Styles on the interview set. She asked what stipulation he would choose if he beats Nakamura. Styles said it’s when not if he picks the stipulation match. He said it could be an inverted scaffold match or a pole on a pole match or bullrope, Hell in a Cell, inferno match. Young asked if that’s the one where the referees dress up as Elvis. Styles told her she’s being silly. He said no matter what he chooses the con artist Nakamura will be the only one who isn’t entertained. He said Nakamura may have forgotten how to speak English, but forearm to the face is universal…
 

Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles made their entrances for the main event… [C]

4. AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the right to choose the stipulation to their WWE Championship match at WWE Money in the Bank. Phillips noted that it was the first time Styles and Nakamura had met in a singles match on Smackdown. He also claimed the match headlined WrestleMania 34.

Styles connected with an early forearm over the top rope and onto Nakamura at ringside. Nakamura came back with a nice kick on the apron and followed up with a running knee. [C] Nakamura remained on the offensive coming out of the break. Styles started to fight back, but Nakamura put him down with a running kick to the face that led to a two count. There were dueling chants for the wrestlers. At 11:20, Styles connected with a Pele Kick that knocked Nakamura off the ropes.

Late in the match, Nakamura set up for his finisher, but Styles rolled him into a Styles Clash set up. Nakamura kicked free, but Styles hoisted up Nakamura and dropped him onto his knee and covered him for a two count. Nakamura connected with a Kinshasa and only got a two count. Nakamura acted shocked. Nakamura lined for another, but Styles caught him with a heel kick. Styles went for a Phenomenal Forearm, but Nakamura ducked it and Styles sopped short of hitting the referee. Nakamura acted like Styles hit him below the belt while the ref wasn’t looking. Styles disputed it and then Nakamura performed a reverse exploder and hit another Kinshasa for the win…

Shinsuke Nakamura defeated AJ Styles in 17:35 to earn the right to choose the stipulation for the WWE Championship match at WWE Money in the Bank.

The broadcast team questioned what stipulation Nakamura will choose as he was celebrating to close the show…

The heel picking the stipulation makes sense, as it's heelish.
 
Now if he doesn't win the title it's got to be the end of the fued.

Yeah I agree on both. It’s overkill and if Shinsuke doesn’t win its time to move on.

I liked his backstage interview on Smackdown this week but i am in agreement that we are getting a bit overkill - these 2 should have been kept apart until the PPV.

There were other ways to determine who picked the stipulation - such as beat the clock matches.

I kind of want Heel Nakamura as champion but then if he wins we will get yet another match between the 2 so im not sure how this one is going to go

I'm all for their match at money in the bank being the last one between them for a while.

How is it the best match they've had in WWE is on smackdown seriously this kind of effort should been on at WrestleMania.

Really hoping for either a street fight or a last man standing match to end this anything else would be a waste.

I also don't want to see Shinskue as champion I just don't think he'd be a good one for the WWE he still looks like he's going through the motions and I'm probably one of the only ones who's not a fan of his heel character.

Having Nakamura win on Smackdown clean makes it pretty certain that Styles will be retaining the title. 

Remember how mixed brand PPVs were supposed to stop repetitive match ups that go 50 50 and never actually go anywhere?

Roll on Styles vs Joe.

Especially as Nakamura laid out Styles just as the match stipulation needs to be done.
 
Quote Renee Young is in the ring and she introduces WWE Champion AJ Styles, and then she introduces Shinsuke Nakamura, who will face him at Money In The Bank. Renee tells Nakamura he's earned the right to pick the stipulation for their match, and AJ interrupts and demands that Nakamura names the stipulation now. Nakamura tells AJ to relex and remember why he gets the choose the stipulation, and he shows a replay on the big screen of him beating AJ last week. AJ tells him to enjoy it, because it'll never happen again. Nakamura tells AJ to be quiet, and says he won't just beat AJ, he will dishonor him, and AJ will never recover. Nakamura says the stipulation at Money In The Bank will be a "pillow fight." Nakamura laughs, and AJ tells Nakamura he must be the "king of soft style." Nakamura repeats that he's going to deliver the knee to AJ's face, and AJ says he doesn't care what the stipulation is, because Nakamura can't beat him without cheap shots. Nakamura goes to throw a right hand, but AJ blocks it and drops Nakamura with a right hand of his own. They brawl out to ringside and AJ throws Nakamura into the timekeeper's area. Nakamura swings a steel chair and misses, and AJ throws him into the crowd. AJ throws him back to ringside, and then leaps off the fan barricade, but Nakamura smacks him out of mid-air with the steel chair. Nakamura hits a knee to the body of AJ, and then he slams him onto the announce table. Nakamura hits hthe Kinshasa on AJ on the floor, and AJ is down. Nakamura counts to ten as AJ lays at ringside. Nakamura grabs a mic and says "last man standing."
 
The stipulation has been obvious for weeks, but I did laugh when Nakamura first picked a pillow fight LOL
 
If that had been legit I would have been strangely intrigued to see how two of the best wrestlers could make it work LOL

Nakamura picking Pillow Fight was very funny - he has been far far better in every way since the heel turn.

As expected its a Last Man Standing which i expect Style to retain
