James Ellsworth shocked the world again. This time though, it wasn’t necessarily so joyous.
Ellsworth accompanied Dean Ambrose to the ring in a major SmackDown LIVE main event. Though WWE World Champion AJ Styles was out for retribution after Ambrose’s involvement in his match with Ellsworth last week, if The Lunatic Fringe could defeat The Phenomenal One, he would then subsequently be named No. 1 contender for the illustrious championship.
Both Superstars went hard in the paint in efforts to triumph over the other. After a thrilling series of exchanges, it appeared that Ambrose was on the verge of victory … but then James Ellsworth happened.
Ellsworth accidently cost Ambrose the match when, after Styles viciously dropkicked Ellsworth, the No Chinned Wonder later got his revenge by Superkicking the champion on the outside. However, the sweet feeling of retribution would be short-lived when Ambrose was disqualified because of Ellsworth’s hasty actions, awarding Styles the victory and eliminating Ambrose’s chance at becoming No. 1 Contender.
