Carmella cut an in-ring promo where she promised to humiliate Nikki Bella while John Cena watched from home. Nikki ran in and brawled with Carmella, who eventually escaped and ran away.
The Ambrose Asylum was in a congratulatory mood, as Ambrose celebrated James Ellsworth getting a Smackdown contract. The show was interrupted by AJ Styles, who was mocked by Ambrose for losing to Ellsworth three times. Styles demanded respect, but Ambrose claimed he was already in AJ’s head. Another brawl broke out in a night full of them, and Styles got the upper hand, sending Ambrose into the steps, beating up Ellsworth with a ladder, and hitting him with a Styles Clash off the steps onto the floor, which is just as brutal as it sounds. Ellsworth was attended to by medical personnel, and taken away on a stretcher.
