8. WWE World Championship Match Set For Next Week’s Episode of SmackDown Live
On this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, Dean Ambrose faced John Cena in the main event of the episode. During the ending moments of the match, Ambrose countered Cena’s AA and pinned the 15 time WWE World Champion.
WWE World Champion AJ Styles came out after the match and attacked both of his No Mercy 2016 opponents. This led to SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan coming out and he reminded Styles that Shane Mcmahon announced last week that Ambrose will get his one-on-one rematch with Styles for the WWE World Championship. Bryan then announced that Ambrose will get his shot at the WWE World Championship next week in the main event of SmackDown Live.
Also during this week’s episode, The Usos defeated American Alpha in a #1 contenders tag team bout and will now face Rhyno & Heath Slater for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles at No Mercy 2016.
Chad Gable was “cleared” by WWE to return to action on tonight’s episode (Gable suffered a storyline knee injury which resulted in American Alpha being pulled from Backlash 2016). The Usos worked on Gable’s knee the whole match and this resulted in him failing to help his partner, Jason Jordan, in the end. Jordan ended up eating a double superkick from the former Tag Team Champions and then a splash for the pinfall.
Below is what the match-card for No Mercy 2016 looks like at the moment:
– WWE World Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. John Cena vs. Dean Ambrose
– SmackDown Women’s Championship Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Alexa Bliss
– SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: Rhyno & Heath Slater (c) vs. The Usos
