Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Commentators:  Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL

Tonight:  AJ Styles Vs James Ellsworth, for the WWE World Championship

Segment Number 1:  Randy Orton Promo

Orton gives credit where credit is due to Bray Wyatt.  The evil side goes deeper than he thought.  The harder you fight, the more you pull into the darkness, the more you suffocate.  Orton feels like he is losing the fight, but Bray has a bigger problem.  Randy is wrath, he is vengeance, and Randy is coming for Bray.  The light cut off, and we see Bray in a coffin.  Bray is coming after Orton, he is about to take him on a journey where he is grasping for his last breath.  And there is nothing he can do about it.  He’s here.

Match Number 1:  Randy Orton Vs Luke Harper

In the middle of the match, Bray Wyatt comes out, with the coffin.  Bray comes in the ring, to DQ Luke Harper.  The Wyatt Family attack Orton.  The casket opens, up, and Kane shows up.  Kane and Orton signal for a RKO/Chokeslam, but the lights go out, and the Wyatts are gone when the come back on.

Winner:  Randy Orton (Via DQ)

Segment Number 3:  AJ Styles Promo

Cathy Dennis has AJ Styles, tonight he is defending the WWE World Title.  AJ can’t believe what is happening tonight.  He is the face who runs this place.  He is the WWE World Champion, and he has to defend his title against the skinny, piece of turd.  And we know he is not in AJ’s league.  Dean Ambrose can do something to cost him the title.  It’s like WCW all over again, with David Arquette becoming WCW Champion.  And he has to face that “noodle”.  But if Dean Ambrose does something, he will find him.

Tonight:  World Championship Match, AJ Styles Vs James Ellsworth

Match Number 2:  Alexa Bliss Vs Naomi

Alexa got the revenge she needed after losing to Naomi a few weeks ago.  Alexa picks up the win with Twisted Bliss.  They can easily set Naomi up to be the next challenger, since she pinned the Number One Contender.  Alexa has a title shot on November 8th, live on Smackdown against Becky Lynch.  Renee Young interviews Alexa after her match, and she said the “Cinderella Dream” ends in 3 weeks, and the wicked witch will be done.  There will be a new princess, and that will be Alexa Bliss.

Tonight:  AJ Styles Vs James Ellsworth for WWE World Title.

Next:  Carmella

Segment Number 6:  Carmella Promo

Two months ago in Brooklyn, New York she was basking in her first PPV match, and who’s music did she hear?  Nikki Freaking Bella, and she doesn’t get why the fans love her.  But Carmella is about to spill the tea on Nikki Bella.  Here comes Nikki.  Nikki is curious to hear what Carmella has to say, so instead of attacking from her behind, she can say it to her face.  Once again, Nikki is stealing her spotlight, but then again she is not surprised since her boyfriend is John Cena.  And she got her spot because she gets to go home to “Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect”.  Nikki is not surprised by this, and Carmella thinks she is hiding it.  But they have two shows together.  Everyone knows, but she chooses not to talk about it in WWE.  Nikki calls Carmella a bully, just like the internet bullies.  Carmella calls John a gold digger.  And we see some edited clips of “Total Bellas” to prove that point.  Carmella can edit, but what she doesn’t know is Nikki paved her own road, she pays her own bills, and wears the pants in her relationship.  You don’t believe her, when they didn’t believe in her, Nikki trained hard to prove them wrong, and when she did get that respect, her world shattered when she hurt her neck.  And she worked hard to get back to where she is at, and she won’t let a princess from Staten Island to hurt her.  Carmella tells Nikki she is a marketing campaign, with her “Fearless” T-shirt.  But she used her looks to get into the company.  She used her sister to get in the ring, and she is using her man to get in this spot.

Segment Number 7:  Interview with James Ellsworth

Renee Young is backstage with James.  James is nervous about tonight’s match, and he knows he’s not in the league of the Champ who runs this camp.  But he is going to be okay, win or lose.  Because he can tell his Grandchildren that for one night, he main evented Smackdown Live with AJ Styles.

Next:  6-Man Tag Match

Match Number 4:  Dolph Ziggler and Beauty and Man-Beast (WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions) Vs The Miz and Spirit Squad.

With some help from The Miz, decking Heath Slater, Kenny pins Slater, with a roll up and wins the match.

Winners:  The Miz and Spirit Squad.

Segment Number 9:  Daniel Bryan and Natalya

Nattie wants to be the first person to volunteer in the Survivor Series challenge.  She quotes Whitney Houston, and wants show her cats Instagram.

Match Number 5:  Jack Swagger Vs Baron Corbin.

End of Days, in very quick fashion.  Probably shorter than the main event.

Winner:  Baron Corbin (By Pinfall)

Segment Number 10:  More Natalya and Daniel Bryan

More cat pictures, but Dean Ambrose come out, dressed in a ref shirt.  He is ready to serve as the special guest ref.  He will call it down the line.  Daniel says he can’t be the ref tonight.  He can do anything else he want, just not a ref for the World Title match.

Next:  WWE World Title match

Match Number 6:  AJ Styles (WWE World Champion) Vs James Ellsworth, for WWE World Title.

Dean Ambrose served as many roles in this match.  Special Ring Announcer, Special Bell Ringer, Promoting WWEShopzone.com.  He did everything, and he made AJ so mad that AJ kept punching James Ellsworth to the point that he made it past the 5 count, so is DQ;d, losing the match to James.  The challenger did lay a offenive move, with Sweet Chin Music.  Dean announcers AJ is the loser of this match, AJ charges the ring, and is hit by Dirty Deeds to end the show.

Winner:  James Ellsworth (By DQ)
