So here are the results from this week’s episode:
We begin with AJ Styles in the ring. A flashback to Last Tuesday's Smackdown is shown where AJ Styles got distracted by the No Chin wonder James Ellsworth and ended up losing his match to Dean Ambrose. AJ Styles is in the middle of the ring now and begins to talk to the crowd. AJ Styles accuses Dean Ambrose of cheating and refers to James Ellsworth as a 'mutant turtle' as well as an embarrassment to humanity.
He further goes on to add that he didn't need Dean Ambrose on his team to win against Raw. He then begins to introduce Team Smackdown, but Baron Corbin's music cuts him off as Corbin makes his entrance. Baron Corbin tells AJ Styles that he wouldn't fight for AJ Styles' team.

Dean Ambrose tells AJ Styles that if he had a problem with James Ellsworth he was gonna have to go through Dean first. AJ Styles brings Dean's attention to the rest of the superstars in the ring and tells him that he's outnumbered.
Baron Corbin makes his exit much to the dismay of AJ Styles. Shane McMahon's music hits and he makes his way into the ring. Shane McMahon encourages all members of team Blue to put their differences aside and co-operate with each other.
He also insists that the team gets inspiration from James Ellsworth's passion. He then makes James Ellsworth the official mascot for Team Smackdown, acting on Ellsworth's suggestion.
