WWE Smackdown was hosted last night by the Canadian Tier center in Ottawa, Canada. Since this one was the first Smackdown post Survivor Series, we were bound to see some major dragged storylines from the PPV. Things on the blue brand have already been hyped up with TLC PPV just around the corner on December 4th.
Shane McMahon Kicked Things Off
Smackdown opened with Shane McMahon making his way to the ring. He addressed their victory at the men’s elimination match against team Raw. However, he was upset with Dean Ambrose, who allied with his former Shield brethren to turn on his own team member, AJ Styles. However, Shane seemed to be impressed with James Ellsworth. So, he was willing to give the mascot a permanent Smackdown contract. The confrontation set up a ladders match between Styles and Ellsworth. If the latter wins then he would earn a contract. Furthermore, Dean Ambrose was escorted out of the arena as punishment.
