Tables, Ladders, & Chairs Results – WWE

AJ Styles retained the WWE World Championship with the aid of James Ellsworth in the main event of last night’s TLC event.

No Mercy Results – WWE

Luke Harper returned to distract Randy Orton long enough for Bray Wyatt to nail him with Sister Abigail and score a victory over the Viper in the show-closing match of No Mercy.  Why didn’t I call it the main event you ask? Because WWE opened last night’s event with the match labeled “The Main Event”, as AJ Styles defeated John Cena & Dean Ambrose by pinning Cena after a chair shot. Earlier in the match, Styles tapped to a double submission by Ambrose and Cena, causing the referee to restart the match. And in the other standout match of the evening, Dolph Ziggler captured his 5th Intercontinental Championship, keeping his career going in the process, against The Miz. Another solid show all around for the blue brand.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins defeated Roman Reigns with The Pedigree

Money In The Bank Cash-In for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Dean Ambrose defeated Seth Rollins with Dirty Deeds

For the second time in seven months, a Money in the Bank cash-in has ended a new champion’s ever so brief reign.

Dean Ambrose cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase won earlier in the evening to become the NEW WWE World Heavyweight Champion after immediately after Seth Rollins defeated Roman Reigns in a 25+ minute match to re-capture the championship he didn’t lose.  While the crowd, predictably wasn’t into a match predominately controlled by “The Guy,” both Reigns and Rollins did great here, highlighted by a bonkers Spear-turned-Pedigree spot towards the end of the match. Rollins nailed a second pedigree for the title win.  Which then cued, Dean Ambrose making good on his threat to cash-in should he win the Money in the Bank contract.  Ambrose, echoing the chair shot which shattered the Shield, came in hit Rollins with the briefcase from behind to signal his cash-in.  One Dirty Deeds later, the Lunatic Fringe was champion.

Ambrose’s win comes a year after losing in a photo finish to Seth Rollins at last year’s Money in the Bank title match and marks all three members of the Shield holding the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, on the same night no less.
