A.J. Styles is still WWE World Hvt. champion following his first title defense on Tuesday night’s Smackdown.

Styles topped Dean Ambrose in a re-match from the No Mercy PPV after John Cena inadvertently cost Ambrose the match from the commentary position.

The finish was Styles rolled Ambrose back into the ring, punched Cena in the face, Cena tried to get into the ring, Ambrose rolled up Styles for a visual three count, Ambrose argued with Cena, and Styles rolled up Ambrose from behind to win the match and retain the title.

Afterward, Ambrose and Cena got into it, leading to Cena delivering an AA to Ambrose. Styles then tried the Clash on Cena, but Cena reversed into the AA.

Cena was the last man standing over Styles and Ambrose leading into their triple threat WWE World Title match at No Mercy.

The match includes Cena’s chase for his 16th Hvt. Title in WWE, which would match Ric Flair’s marketed record.
