Ellsworth to challenge AJ Styles for the WWE World Title tonight
James Ellsworth stunned the WWE Universe at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs when he emerged from nowhere to betray his friend, Dean Ambrose, and pave the way for AJ Styles to retain his title in an absolutely brutal TLC Match on the award-winning WWE Network.
Explaining his actions on WWE Talking Smack afterward, Ellsworth went a step further by announcing that he will redeem his earned WWE World Title Match against “The Face That Runs the Place” tonight on SmackDown LIVE.
Though Ellsworth does technically hold three victories over Styles, it’s safe to say that Ambrose won’t be helping him this time around. In fact, considering that The Phenomenal One hates him and The Lunatic Fringe will be out for retribution, the chinless No. 1 contender’s best strategy for the imminent title showdown had better include a lot of running.
