A host of matches were announced last week for this Tuesday night’s show, Alexa Bliss would have a rematch against Naomi after losing to her at No Mercy and Baron Corbin would again square off against Jack Swagger.
Most notably, however, after last week’s shock win, this week’s Smackdown Live was headlined by AJ Styles vs James Ellsworth for the WWE World Championship. Could James Ellsworth do the impossible and actually walk away with the gold? Surely not…
#1 Ellsworth gets merchandise
This week’s show began backstage with James Ellsworth being shown his first ever piece of WWE merchandise by Dean Ambrose. That’s right, James Ellsworth now has a t-shirt on wweshop.com.
It’s a fairly basic t-shirt that just has Ellsworth’s chinless face on it but nonetheless is a sign of just how far this jobber has come in a short time.
