Dean Ambrose vs. AJ Styles ( If Dean wins, he becomes no.1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship) 


We're back from the break and Ambrose is on top of Styles. Topa Suicida from Ambrose on the outside and the onslaught continues as he rams his head on the barricade and announcer's table.

Ambrose rolls him back into the ring and unleashes a flurry of chops. Styles and Ambrose exchange a series of unsuccessful roll-ups. Ambrose then takes Styles down and turns him into the Cloverleaf. Styles reaches for the ropes and breaks up the hold. He takes Styles to the top and delivers the Avalanche Butterfly Suplex. 1...2...kickout!

Styles gets back up and surprises Ambrose with a transitioned calf crusher. Ambrose breaks it up and the action spills to the outside again as the Lunatic Fringe rams Styles's head into the steel steps. Ambrose has deployed a frantic pace here and looks to get things done quickly.

Ambrose gets Style back into the ring and goes for the blockbuster from the second rope, but Styles moves out of the way. Ambrose lands on his knee and looks to be in visible discomfort as we go into a break.

We're back from the break and Styles is seen wearing down Ambrose with a host of strikes. Styles goes for the Phenomenal forearm but falls outside due to an Ambrose dropkick. Ambrose goes up top and lands the elbow on Ambrose to the outside.

Styles gets back in the ring and Ambrose goes for the Dirty Deeds, but Styles counters with an attempted Calf crusher. Ambrose fights out of it and goes for the suplex, but AJ blocks and in turn, suplexes Ambrose into the turnbuckle.

Ambrose plants Syles with a facebuster. Pinfall, 1...2...kickout!  Both men jockey for position and the sequence ends up in both men down with the double clothesline.

Wait a minute...guess who's here! James Ellsworth appears through the crowd to pump Ambrose up. Ambrose, though tells him to go and Style smells blood and rolls up Styles. 1...2.... Ambrose powers out at two-and-a-half. The security intervenes and Ellsworth runs into the crowd while the match continues.

The two men cancel each other out in an epic sequence as both men looked to go for an inverted DDT which eventually ended in a Calf Crusher. Will Ambrose tap? Nope!  he reaches for the ropes and breaks it up. The crowd is going buts at this moment!

Meanwhile, Ellsworth is seen running around the ring and Styles looks distracted. Styles shoulder tackles Ellsworth sending him into crashing across the announce table. Styles gets up the apron and looks to finish things off with the Phenomenal forearm, but Ambrose moves out, kicks him in the guts and delivers the Dirty Deeds. Pinfall, 1-2-3!

Ambrose is the new no.1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight title. A satisfied Ellsworth is heckled by the security personnel on the ramp and Ambrose shows his gratitude towards Ellsworth. The man with no chin has redeemed himself!

Result: Dean Ambrose def. AJ Styles via pinfall to become the no.1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Stay tuned as Dean Ambrose vs. AJ Styles is on the other side of the break 

...
...
...

Before the main event between AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles is asked about his thoughts backstage. Styles looks pissed over the stupid questions he came across while he makes his way to the ring.  

On the other side, Ambrose escorts Ellsworth out of the building to bar him from coming by ringside and tells him that any man with two hands can call an Uber and get a ride back home.

A backstage vingnette featuring Randy OPrton and Bray Wyatt airs. Orton syas he's stopped making deals with the devil and it seems he has completely given into the Buzzard way of life by the looks of it.

The Usos vs The Headbangers (Qualifying match for a spot in the Survivor Series elimination match)

Former Tag team champions The Headbangers return to basically out over Usos as the fourth team in the tag team match for Survivor Series. The Usos attack the Headbangers even before the bell rings  and get a headstart on the veterans.

The short and relatively uneventful match ends with a roll-up win for the Usos. The heels pick up the win and join The American Alpha, Heath Slater and Rhyno and The Hype Bros in SmackDown's team for the Survivor Series tag team elimination match.

Result: The Usos def. The Headbangers

Dolph Ziggler vs. Curt Hawkins

Hawkins came out and said that an Intercontinental Championship match is the perfect opportunity for him to make his much-anticipated in-ring return. It's time to finally face the facts with Hawkins ready to give Ziggler a fact check.

The bell rings, Hawkins turns and runs into Ziggler superkick. Pinfall, 1-2-3! Ziggler dispatches Hawkins in under 5 seconds. What a way to destroy all the hype. This goes on to show Hawkins is just a glorified jobber and his job is to look stupid in defeat.

Result: Dolph Ziggler def. Curt Hawkins to retain the Intercontinental title via pinfall

After the match, Ziggler sent out a strong statement and challenged any RAW superstar who wishes to become the Ic title to step up and take a shot. Ziggler ended the segment by saying that he doesn't care who he faces because he's too damn good.

...

Miz TV with Daniel Bryan

This should be an interesting segment no doubt, considering the history between the two. Maryse introduces the most handsome man in the whole world, (sigh), The Miz, who introduces his guest, the leader of the Yes Movement, Daniel Bryan.

Bryan comes out to a rousing reception. This place is electric as Daniel Bryan chants echo around the arena, so much so that Miz requests the fans to let him continue his show. Naturally, they chant no in unison.

Miz says he's running a tight ship here and it's a stark contrast to what Daniel Bryan and his camp do with Talking Smack. Bryan says that if Miz continues to be passive-aggressive, he has no qualms about cancelling Miz Tv. You guess right; the fans mercilessly chanted yes. Miz cuts him off and comes straight to the burning question about Survivor Series.

He asks Bryan about Survivor Series and the way the teams are shaping up. Bryan talks about the tag team match, but Miz is obviously more inclined towards the men' match. Bryan states that Orton, Ambrose, Styles, Corbin make the team and points out to the Miz. Bryan then goes on to troll Miz and names Wyatt as the fifth member. Epic! 

Miz loses it that his name wasn't even considered and goes on to trash Bryan. Miz states that he could have been the captain the blue brand needed. Bryan says that Miz was not added to avoid combustible elements in the match. Miz loses it again and says that Bryan is a good-for-nothing chump who can just clean John Cena's toilet in Total Bellas. Burn! 

Bryan lost his wits too after this and threw his chair in sheer anger. He said that Miz was a coward as he rejected Ziggler's offer of an IC title match last week and made a major announcement soon after.

Bryan said that Ziggler would be defending the Intercontinental title up next in an open challenge to anyone from the talented roster open to step up.

The champion makes his way to ring for his match and guess who answers the challenge. Curt Hawkins. It's time to face the facts!

American Alpha vs The Spirit Squad (For a spot in the Survivor Series team)

The qualification match for the Survivor Series elimination tag team match is up next. Spirit Squad is already in the screaming their guts out. The American Alpha thankfully cuts them off and the match begins.

Chad Gable begins the match against Mikey. The squad looks good early on as they take Gable down with a standing moon sault. The momentum didn't last long as Jordon gets tagged in and shows why he's so highly rated among his peers.

He rag dolls the Squad with some neat german suplexes. Gable, meanwhile, tags himself in from the apron and they deliver the Grand amplitude. Pinfall, 1-2-3!

Result: The American Alpha def. The Spirit Squad

And just like that American Alpha have guaranteed themselves a spot in the Survivor Series team of SmackDown.

Nikki Bella and Becky Lynch vs. Carmella and Alexa Bliss

The women of the blue brand are up in action next in a tag team match with Nikki and SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch teaming up to take on their respective rivals, Carmella and Alexa Bliss.

The entrances are done and the match kicks off with Nikki and Carmella. Alexa isn't patient enough to wait on the apron and tags herself into bum rush Nikki, who easily takes Bliss down. Nikki tags Becky in, who sends Alexa flying out of the ring with a couple of strikes. Lynch riles up the crowd as SmackDown goes into a commercial break.

Back from the break, Becky is seen going on a rampage on Carmella. She gets Carmella down with a springboard sidekick for the pinfall broken up by Alexa Bliss.

Bliss gets tagged in and takes advantage of Carmella's interference on the apron by jumping onto Becky's back, racking her in the eyes and slamming her face into the canvas with the DDT. Pinfall, 1-2-3! The heels pick up the win in another short match.

Result: Alexa Bliss and Carmella def. Nikki Bella and Becky Lynch

Alexa Bliss and Carmella cut a promo after the match addressing Survivor Series. Carmella sends out a warning to Bayley, Charlotte -- the over-hyped daddy's girl, and everyone from RAW that the Princess from Staten Island means business.

Alexa ends the promo by hyping up her Women's title match on next week's SmackDown. She says that Becky's pathetic title run ends next week in Glasgow.

It should be a great match to watch indeed!
