• John Cena Picks Up Big Win On SmackDown Live, Earns WWE Title Match On PPV

In the main event of tonight’s SmackDown Live, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena faced WWE Champion AJ Styles in a non-Title match with the stipulation being that Cena would get added to the WWE Title match at FastLane 2018 if he wins.

Cena ended up winning the match after hitting the third Attitude Adjustment of the match and the WWE Title match at FastLane 2018 is now a 6 Pack Challenge.

After the match, Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn attacked Cena. Dolph Ziggler then came out to make the save and fought off the heels. Ziggler, Styles & Cena stood tall after this.

Ziggler then attacked Styles and this led to Cena hitting an AA on Ziggler to end SmackDown Live.
