Ottawa, Nov 23: This was the first Smackdown after the Survivor Series PPV and hence we have expected some major fall-outs on the show.
The show was hosted at the Canadian Tier Center in Ottawa, Canada, and Shane McMahon kicked things off admitting that he is still battered by that wicked spear from Roman Reigns.
He thanked Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt for leading Smackdown to the victory. However, he was angry with Dean Ambrose and his actions of allying with his former Shield brethren. As a punishment, he gave Ambrose the night off and escorted him out of the building.
Furthermore, he wanted to give James Ellsworth a Smackdown contract and hence a ladders match was set up between Ellsworth and AJ Styles. If Ellsworth wins he would earn a Smackdown contract and future WWE World title shot.
This was the main event of the night as Styles took on the mascot of team Smackdown. Quite expectedly, Dean Ambrose showed up to help his buddy in the match.
However, Styles hit him with a Phenomenal Forearm and started climbing the ladder. But, Ellsworth shoved him off from it and connected with the No Chin Music. He grabbed the contract to officially become a WWE roster member.
The Miz was forced to defend his Intercontinental title in an impromptu matchup against Kalisto. The match was interrupted by Baron Corbin.
The distraction allowed Miz to hit the Skull Crushing Finale to retain his title. Dolph Ziggler appeared to put down Miz with a superkick.
This set up a final match between The Miz and Ziggler at the TLC PPV with no rematch after that.
Becky Lynch defeated Natalya in a nontitle match via submission. She will be defending her title against Alexa Bliss at TLC PPV.
Also, Nikki Bella declared that a No Disqualification match will take place at the TLC PPV between her and Carmella.
The American Alpha became the number one contender for the tag team title. But, next week they will face the team of Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt to determine the final contender.
Kane squared off Baron Corbin but Kalisto interfered to get his redemption on the Lone Wolf. Corbin got the win via DQ but Kan put him down with a chokeslam. Kalisto vowed his revenge with a steel chair on the Lone Wolf.
