With everything on the line, James Ellsworth took on WWE World Champion AJ Styles in a Ladder Match. If he could somehow win, he would be awarded a SmackDown LIVE contract and get a future WWE World Championship opportunity. However, if he lost, he would lose out on it all.
The Phenomenal One was in control for virtually the entire contest. Unfortunately for Ellsworth, an altercation between Styles and Dean Ambrose earlier in the night left The Lunatic Fringe barred from ringside and unable to help him.
Yet, just as the fairytale looked to be coming to an end, Styles was met with an unbelievable surprise when Ambrose, disguised as a hockey player, appeared and neutralized Styles.
This allowed Ellsworth to topple a discombobulated Styles off the ladder and hit him with a pinpoint superkick to climb the ladder to success (like, for real) and grab the contract, then celebrate his miracle of a victory along with Ambrose.
