Could James Ellsworth become the next WWE World Champion?

AJ Styles must defend his WWE World Title against James Ellsworth: WWE Talking Smack, Oct. 11, 2016

Daniel Bryan announces that "The Champ that Runs the Camp" will battle James Ellsworth next Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE: Courtesy of the award-winning WWE Network.

Tonight, SmackDown LIVE features an extremely unusual WWE World Championship Match. As first announced last Tuesday on Talking Smack by General Manager Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles must defend his coveted title against … James Ellsworth? Yes, you read that right. Last week, with a little help from special guest referee Dean Ambrose and two Dirty Deeds, the virtually unknown competitor (who isn’t even signed to Team Blue) was able to pin the reigning titleholder. Now he finds himself the No. 1 contender to “The Champ that Runs the Camp.”

As an irate Styles has promised to take matters in his own hands, Ellsworth might consider running for Parts Unknown as fast as humanly possible. Then again, could The Lunatic Fringe be unhinged enough to involve himself again and help make Ellsworth the next WWE World Champion? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network.
