Anticipation loomed in this WWE Championship Triple Threat Match, both to see who would prevail victorious and to find out who would go on to defend the title against John Cena at the Royal Rumble.
AJ Styles, Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin were all very much game for the task at hand, delivering an incredibly compelling contest to cap off the Wild Card Finals. Both Ziggler and Corbin made the most of their opportunity, giving it all they had in the process. Tables were smashed, incredible counters were made and all three Superstars proved to be warriors. However, ultimately, Styles proved why he continues to remain at the peak of the Team Blue mountaintop, defeating The Showoff after striking The Lone Wolf with the Phenomenal Forearm and then capitalizing on the End of Days Corbin struck Ziggler with seconds earlier for the win.
Cena arrived as Styles began to celebrate after the contest was over. The two rivals stared each other down before the Cenation leader, somewhat surprisingly, extended his hand for a handshake. The Phenomenal One, skeptically, returned the gesture, now with their Royal Rumble clash looming on The Road to WrestleMania.
