AJ Styles interrupted James Ellsworth’s apology to Dean Ambrose
NEWARK, N.J. — Following his accidental disqualification of Dean Ambrose in The Lunatic Fringe’s high-stakes matchup with AJ Styles last week on SmackDown LIVE, a clearly distraught James Ellsworth came to the ring to make a public apology to Ambrose.
A perturbed, but sympathetic Ambrose listened to Ellsworth’s sincere request for forgiveness, and accepted, but also told Ellsworth to never get in his way again. Both were then interrupted by WWE World Champion AJ Styles, who was quick to disparage both Ellsworth’s WWE merit and his relationship with Ambrose.
This unnerved the unstable Ambrose, which led to him to get into a brawl with Styles, which Ellsworth nobly attempted to break up before being shoved by The Phenomenal One into Ambrose. Styles then took advantage of the staggered Ambrose by hitting him with the Phenomenal Forearm. Styles then promptly exited the ring, laughing at the comedy of errors that Ellsworth had just produced, while the underdog looked on, completely mortified.
