I'd expect Samoa Joe to be Styles' next opponent. The lack of quality face competitors is why I don't see Nakamura winning.

I think it has to either be Joe, Miz, or Bryan. I'd be fine with any one of those.

It's a shame they don't get to main event a PPV but Reigns vs Mahal is much more important than the WWE title

Id expect Nakamura to move onto a mid card title feud but the question is who is next for AJ?

Its too early for Almas although the matches would be insane but im not sure who else theyd move?

I think it deserves to be Miz but he doesnt seem to be even suggesting anything like that at the minute

If joe wins MITB youd still expect someone to feud with AJ in the run up to the cash in attempt

Quote During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, reporter Bryan Alvarez discussed the Last Man Standing match between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura at the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view event.

According to Alvarez, the match may end in similar fashion to the one at the WWE Backlash pay-per-view event, with a double low-blow. However, AJ Styles would get up, revealing that he was wearing a cup, and beating Nakamura.

Of course, this is just speculation as of now and should be taken with a grain of salt.

I'm all for that finish. AJ goes down with Nakamura selling the low blow.
 
It gets to a 8 or 9 count and AJ flips from his back, back to his feet HBK style and starts pointing and laughing at Nakamura as if to say I tricked you.
 
AJ announced as the winner, Nakamura looking confused as to why AJ is OK whilst he's holding his groin, only for Styles to remove the protective cup and chuck it at him.

Yeah after the double count out at Backlash I literally tweeted "Have they announced the Last Man Standing match yet?"

Sometimes, like with this match or the Punjabi Prison match, anyone who watches wrestling can put the pieces together. Should be a good match.

Shinsuke has developed really well from this feud and even though he's going to fall down the pecking order of top heel for a while I'm very happy with how he's been used.

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

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

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.
