AJ Styles retained the WWE World Championship with the aid of James Ellsworth in the main event of last night’s TLC event. Styles & Ambrose pulled out all the stops including an insane 450 splash from the ring to a table at ringside by AJ and an Ambrose elbow from the top of a ladder mounted on one announce table through the other announce table.

Eagle-eyed viewers of the teaser on Wednesday may have figured it out, but last night on Impact Wrestling, TNA confirmed that Cody Rhodes will be debuting for the company at October 2nd’s Bound For Glory.
In a vignette which aired on last night’s show, Rhodes announced his participation in TNA’s marquee event.
“You don’t know a man until you walk a mile in his shoes. I learn more about me every day, with every mile. My past is just that. My story is being written one step at a time. My future is decided by the roads that I take. I am bound for a new adventure. Where I’m going there is gold, there is glory, because for me, all roads lead to Bound for Glory.”
Rhodes is currently being billed strictly as “Cody” by TNA. In addition to working with TNA, Rhodes is also still scheduled for Ring Of Honor’s year-end event Final Battle in New York City on December 2nd, as well as a packed calendar of independent wrestling shows. Earlier this week, TNA also signed Cody’s wife Brandi Rhodes to a Knockouts contract.
