After James Ellsworth talked himself into a pickle with former friend Dean Ambrose – thanks to urging from his “boo thing” Carmella – Daniel Bryan approved a match between the Intercontinental Champion and the Chinless Superstar.
Though Ellsworth should get credit just for showing up and introducing Carmella to the WWE Universe so nicely, the contest never got underway. Ambrose was seemingly attacked by Baron Corbin backstage and The Lone Wolf dragged him out to the ramp. Ambrose tried to fight back, but Corbin’s strength was too much, ultimately hitting him with the Deep Six through electrical equipment, sending sparks flying. It was Corbin’s second attack of retribution this week for Ambrose eliminating him from Sunday’s Elimination Chamber Match.
When SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan returned to his home state faithful in Washington for the first time since announcing his in-ring retirement, he brought the WWE Universe into a frenzy … until The Miz interrupted.
However, before The Miz and Bryan could get knee deep into one of their usual heated exchanges, Baron Corbin cut them both off, which led to he and A-Lister exchanging words after their run-in last week. While Corbin wanted to talk about the past, though, Miz instead looked to get The Lone Wolf on his side in advance of their participation in the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match this Sunday.
Corbin did not seem interested though and before the matter could be settled, fellow Chamber competitors Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles each decided to join the party. As the situation grew more intense, Bryan, decided to create an impromptu Fatal 4-Way Match for them!
At the order of SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan, Elimination Chamber participants Dean Ambrose, The Miz, AJ Styles and Baron Corbin laid it all on the line in a Fatal 4-Way Match in the first match of the show. The action was nonstop with all four Superstars looking like they had victory sewed up at points. However, in the end it was The Lone Wolf who was able to gain some momentum heading into Sunday’s Elimination Chamber, defeating AJ Styles with the End of Days for the major win.
To start out this weeks Smackdown, Dean was officially announced as a participant in the upcoming Elimination Chamber for the WWE Championship, meaning in two weeks time Dean could very well become a double champion! But for tonight, he has some unfinished business with AJ Styles. The pair collide in a non title match and both seem to have something to prove to the other as they tear in to one another. Dean even cracks open his indie box of tricks and brings back a move many of his fans haven’t seen in a long while, one that stuns AJ and almost wins him the match. However interference from Baron Corbin and The Miz is enough to distract Dean and cost him the win.. Miz and Corbin then use him as finisher practice. Ouch. But is it really wise to tick off a Lunatic? Heres what WWE.com had to say!
The Miz joined commentary for SmackDown LIVE’s main event as his fellow Elimination Chamber Match participants Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles prepared to rekindle their longstanding rivalry inside the ring.
From the start, The A-Lister openly criticized another Elimination Chamber competitor, Baron Corbin, for getting involved in his match with Ambrose last week, as The Lunatic Fringe and The Phenomenal One both looked to make a statement on The Road to WrestleMania.
Eventually, though, Miz’s bashing of Corbin backfired as The Lone Wolf joined him at the commentary desk. And as match’s intensity began to reach epic proportions, so did Miz and Corbin’s war of words. And in the final moments, their escalation led to them getting physical at ringside and becoming a distraction for Ambrose, who took both of them out, which led to Styles capitalize by hitting a Styles Clash on The Lunatic Fringe for the win.
After the contest, Miz and Corbin both got their licks in, first with Miz hitting the Skull-Crushing Finale on Ambrose and then Corbin taking out both Miz and Ambrose with End of Days as Corbin stood tall and jaw jacked with The Phenomenal One who continued to celebrate on the ramp.
It’s been quite a start to 2017 for Dean and he continues his streak on this weeks Smackdown, retaining his Intercontinental Championship against The Miz, in a Lumberjack match. Despite Maryse trying to get involved, Dean was one step ahead of her shenanigans and those of the men surrounding the ring. Hitting Dirty Deeds to keep the gold. Now he’s got the Royal Rumble in his sights this sunday, can his amazing start to 2017 continue?
Following a tense exchange between The Miz, Maryse and SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan earlier in the night, The A-Lister was granted his rematch for the Intercontinental Championship against Dean Ambrose, but because of Maryse’s constant interference, it was in a Lumberjack Match.
The bitter rivals had a thrilling contest, with both Superstars battling through being thrown into the Lumberjacks on the outside and each looking like they could have secured victory at several different points.
At one point, bedlam broke out and the Lumberjacks filled the ring as chaos erupted. In the end though, it was The Lunatic Fringe who was able to break through, defeating Miz with an incredible counter into Dirty Deeds for the win.
After requesting a match with The Viper earlier in the evening, Dean Ambrose took on Randy Orton. The two tough-as-nails Superstars fought vigorously and the action was furiously competitive, until Luke Harper (who had just eaten an inadvertent dive from Ambrose moments earlier) abruptly entered the ring just as it seemed Orton was gearing up for an RKO. The distraction proved costly, however, with Ambrose being able to capitalize as The Apex Predator attempted to usher Harper out of the ring, rolling up Orton for the win.
After the contest, Harper and The Viper began exchanging blows before Bray Wyatt separated them and then struck Harper, as well exchanging tense words with Orton before Harper promptly exited.
After taking a moment to officially declare himself as a participant in the Royal Rumble Match, Dean Ambrose welcomed the Superstar he defeated for the Intercontinental Title last week to “The Ambrose Asylum.”
The Miz wasted no time claiming that he, too, has declared himself as a participant in the Royal Rumble Match. He then went on to suggest that Ambrose should hand over the Intercontinental Championship after the controversial ending of their title contest last week. The Lunatic Fringe did not bite on that bait, but offered an olive branch of sorts by re-gifting “The Miz Participation Award” back to the A-Lister.
From there, Miz and Ambrose got into it, with Ambrose ultimately getting the upper hand after he ducked a Maryse slap that wound up connecting with Miz square in the jaw. He then handed Maryse the award as a parting gift.
What a way to ring in the new year! After a couple of weeks of run ins with The Miz and his meddling wife Maryse, the devious duo took things a little too far as first Maryse slapped Dean in the ring, and then she hunted down Renee Young backstage and slapped her teeth out too! Uncalled for, and it was enough to send Dean in to a suitable enough rage to manhandle The Miz all over the ring, beat him up, and take his stuff. Yep, we’re celebrating the new year with an Intercontinental Championship win! We’re sure The Miz wont let this rest and more shenanigans are in store, but for now we bask in the glory of his win. Congratulations, Champ! Here’s what WWE.com had to say!
Following their confrontation in the ring earlier in the evening and then Maryse slapping Renee Young backstage, the stakes were raised even higher for The Miz and Dean Ambrose’s Intercontinental Championship Match.
Ambrose was a house of fire right out of the gate, bringing furious flurries of offense to Miz both in and outside of the ring. The A-Lister was able to gain control, however, when Maryse was able to distract The Lunatic Fringe.
From there, the two Superstars put forth a thrilling and brutal contest that kept the WWE Universe on its toes. Maryse tried to pull a fast one by slapping Ambrose, clearly looking for a disqualification, but instead Ambrose pleaded with the referee to simply eject Maryse, which is ultimately what occurred. From there, The Lunatic Fringe survived an assault with the Intercontinental Championship behind the referee’s back, then reversed a Skull-Crushing Finale into Dirty Deeds to defeat Miz for the Intercontinental Championship.
After last weeks vicious attack by The Miz, Dean Ambrose is out for a little payback. The opportunity presents itself perfectly when The Miz demands an interview with the woman that slapped him last week, Renee Young. As Renee interviews Miz and asks him about the upcoming year, Ambrose sneaks up behind him stealthily dressed as security, much to the amusement of his lady. Renee backs off as Miz realizes his predicament, but its a moment too late as Dean attacks. Beating Miz into a pulp and serving the security their own backsides too, before calmly taking a walkie talkie and reporting back that everythings ‘All clear’. Well, for now.
Looking for payback on Dean Ambrose for pinning him in the Fatal 4-Way Elimination No. 1 Contenders’ Match last week, Luke Harper battled The Lunatic Fringe one-on-one.
During the contest, Ambrose struck Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton on the outside and a few minutes later was able to secure the victory with a cradle.
After the contest, The Wyatts brutally beat down Ambrose, leaving him lying in the ring. This prompted the return of The Miz and Maryse. Miz waited until Ambrose rose to his feet, then Miz savagely attacked him yet again, laying him out with the Skull-Crushing Finale in a bit of clear retribution for Renee Young’s slap earlier in the evening.
With it being announced moments prior that James Ellsworth’s WWE Championship opportunity had been suspended due to him coming down ill on SmackDown LIVE, the show-opening “Miz TV” became the hot stove for all things title talk.
WWE Champion AJ Styles was the initial guest of Intercontinental Champion The Miz and it didn’t take long for The A-Lister to more than subtly suggest that he should be the new No. 1 contender for Styles’ title. However, the two were quickly interrupted by Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler, both of whom seemed ready to fight.
Ziggler and Miz, naturally, got into it, leading to Miz hitting Ziggler with a Skull-Crushing Finale and Ambrose striking both Miz and Ziggler with Dirty Deeds while Styles got out of dodge. Things only became more layered when Luke Harper suddenly appeared in the ring behind The Lunatic Fringe, with him laying out Ambrose.
After the chaotic “Miz TV” earlier in the evening, it was announced that a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match would be had to determine the new No. 1 Contender for the WWE Championship.
AJ Styles sat on commentary as these four Superstars battled for the right to take him on for the most coveted prize in all of WWE. The Miz was ousted first when Dean Ambrose caught him in a rollup for three. The A-Lister’s elimination was followed by Luke Harper, who was taken out by a combo of a Dolph Ziggler Superkick and an Ambrose Dirty Deeds.
The thrilling contest came down to a SummerSlam rematch between Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler. Ambrose and Ziggler went back and forth in a series of thrilling exchanges, until Ziggler, thanks to some involvement from The Miz (who was seemingly out there just to cause a ruckus), was able to catch Ambrose with a Superkick for the victory and the opportunity to capture SmackDown LIVE’s top prize.
Dean Ambrose is not an angry man, they might call him crazy but it takes a whole lot of self control to keep from exploding when someone you thought was a friend has wronged you. Dean displays this self control magnificently at the start of Smackdown, when he interrupts Ellsworth and AJ Styles to simply nail James’ head to the mat and calmly leave. Like making him a human exclamation point that punctuates the statement “You messed up, kid” pretty darn well.
Dean keeps things simmering in to Miz TV, where the obnoxious A Lister (in his own mind) sets out to prod the dormant lunatic in to a reaction. Dean’s amused by this, saying we haven’t seen him truly angry and he’s always surprised by people that attempt to make him so. The Miz arrogantly produces a ‘Participation Award’ for Dean, a consolation prize for the WWE Championship slipping through his fingers thanks to Ellsworth. Dean politely suggests they attempt shoving the entire plaque down The Miz’s throat. Something Daniel Bryan steps in to keep from happening – I’m not sure medical insurance covers plaque insertions – however, Bryan does announce a main event match. Dean Ambrose Vs The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship! Much better.
The main event rolls around and despite a hard fought match, Maryse is up to her usual shenanigans and shoves Dean from the top turnbuckle as he seems to have the match won. This gives The Miz the chance to try and wrap things up, but Dean kicks out. At this point, Ellsworth hurries down to the ring to tell the referee Maryse pushed Dean. Unfortunately for James, he distracts the referee and keeps Dean from getting a three count pin on Miz. Dean notices who caused the distraction and is furious.. and distracted himself enough for Miz to hit him with the skull crushing finale, and end the match.
Ellsworth runs away. Smartest thing he’s ever done. Oy.
WWE World Champion AJ Styles kicked off the show to announce that he would be unable to compete tonight due to an injury suffered at WWE TLC against Dean Ambrose, and thus, his scheduled match with James Ellsworth tonight was cancelled.
Ellsworth arrived, claiming that he thought it was possible that Styles was not competing tonight because he was being “protected” by SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan in fear that Ellsworth would defeat him for the fourth time. However, before Ellsworth could go on too long of a diatribe, he was met by an incredibly disgruntled Ambrose. Still clearly incensed that he cost him the WWE World Title on Sunday, The Lunatic Fringe made a beeline for Ellsworth and dropped him immediately with Dirty Deeds before leaving as soon as he came in.
“Miz TV” with special guest Dean Ambrose
What we’ve learned: It’s probably best to not try and interview the unstable.
Clearly on edge and furious over James Ellsworth costing him the WWE World Title against AJ Styles at WWE TLC, Dean Ambrose was in no mood for Intercontinental Champion The Miz’s sly offhandness on “Miz TV.”
The A-Lister tried to prod Ambrose even further by awarding him the first “Miz Participation Award” for his valiant effort at WWE TLC. SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan arrived to announce that Ambrose and Miz would clash for the Intercontinental Title tonight in the main event!
Following their explosive session on “Miz TV” earlier in the evening, The Miz and Dean Ambrose laid it all out for the Intercontinental Championship in the SmackDown LIVE main event.
The two Superstars battled ferociously and it looked like Ambrose was gaining ground en route to the victory, but then Maryse interfered behind the referee’s back. Much like on Sunday night, James Ellsworth ran out to ringside, but this time it seemed like he was trying to help Ambrose by informing the referee of Maryse’s wrongdoing. All of this calamity led to The A-Lister striking with The Skull Crushing Finale from behind to retain the Intercontinental Championship.
The Lunatic Fringe was enraged after the contest, however, Ellsworth wisely got out of dodge … at least for tonight.
With TLC on Sunday, Dean’s got everything to play for and on this final Smackdown pitstop before the big event, he takes an opportunity to rejuvenate his ‘talk show’ The Ambrose Asylum. His special guest? James Ellsworth of course! I mean who else would he have on there right now? James has been an integral part of Dean’s recent battles with AJ and weather or not he ever meant for his pint sized pal to become such a big part of the plan is up for question. But like it or not, here he is with three victories over AJ and a title shot of his own.. which leads to one of Dean’s main questions. Who does James want to win at TLC and go on to face for the title? James says it’d be an honor to wrestle Dean, but he has three wins over AJ already, so maybe…
Hm, we’re with Dean when we say we think the fame might have gotten to his head a bit! At any rate, AJ interrupts the discussion to tell James once again he doesn’t belong in the WWE and Dean that he’s going to get respect beaten in to him at TLC. Dean counters this saying most battles are fought and won or lost in the mind, and AJ’s been so easy to crack he’s already lost. We tend to agree, AJ has let Dean get under his skin and into his head so much so, he’s starting to make foolhardy decisions like his match against Ellsworth last week. Does Dean have him mentally out of the game already?
I guess we’ll see. But Deans insinuation is enough to tip AJ off of the deep end and he lashes out, attacking Dean and knocking him out of the ring, then smashing him with steels steps before turning on Ellsworth, who he beats with a chair and then delivers the Styles Clash on the steel steps. Ellsworth is whisked away in an ambulance and Dean vows to make it right, swearing revenge. A revenge he takes in the closing moments of Smackdown as he assaults AJ backstage, delivering a beat down that no doubt continued after the cameras stopped rolling. You never want to make it too personal with Dean Ambrose. Big mistake, AJ. Related Links:
