With Dolph Ziggler’s WWE Championship opportunity hanging in the balance, he and Baron Corbin brought their absolute best to the SmackDown LIVE main event while AJ Styles sat in at ringside as a guest commentator.
The two went back and forth, with momentum shifting several times over, until Corbin threw Ziggler into Styles when the two were brawling on the outside. Ziggler arose and superkicked The Lone Wolf, but the two were subsequently counted out. Clearly feeling disrespected by both men, Styles inserted himself and began to assault both men with a steel chair.
All of this prompted SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan to enter the arena and declare that next week on SmackDown LIVE’s Wild Card Finals, Styles will defend his WWE Championship against both Ziggler and Corbin in a Triple Threat Match!
