In an explosive SmackDown LIVE main event, AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose battled it out with John Cena looking on from commentary.
Styles and Ambrose held nothing back in their attempts to obtain the most prestigious prize in all of WWE, bringing their absolute best to the Team Blue battlefield. The two went back and forth with several near falls. But when the action moved outside the ring in what would be the final moments of the match, The Phenomenal One opted to engage Cena, decking him on the outside. But, when the visibly frustrated leader of the Cenation climbed up on the ring apron, the referee became distracted. From there chaos reigned with Styles being able to ultimately seize the moment, grab The Lunatic Fringe’s tights and roll him up to retain the championship.
However, the action was far from over after the match, with Cena laying out both Ambrose and Styes out with Attitude Adjustments, clearly making a statement toward claiming his 16th World Championship at No Mercy.
