Amazon will ship worldwide but if you’re a US resident and order from the UK Amazon you will need to sign up again and you can expect shipping to be a little costly.

On tonights Smackdown Live, Dean finally gets his one on one rematch against AJ Styles, but unsurprisingly AJ uses less than ‘fair’ tactics to pick up his win. Taking advantage of distraction by Cena, AJ grabs a handful of Dean’s belt and jeans to keep him down for the 1, 2, 3. Dean’s enraged at the title (and revenge) slipping out of his grasp once again, and he places the blame squarely on John Cena’s shoulders. However after a shoving match and an attempt to Dirty Deeds the 15 time Champion, John Cena turns the tables and delivers an AA to both Dean and AJ Styles. The chessboard is most definitely set for No Mercy.
In an explosive SmackDown LIVE main event, AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose battled it out with John Cena looking on from commentary.
Styles and Ambrose held nothing back in their attempts to obtain the most prestigious prize in all of WWE, bringing their absolute best to the Team Blue battlefield. The two went back and forth with several near falls. But when the action moved outside the ring in what would be the final moments of the match, The Phenomenal One opted to engage Cena, decking him on the outside. But, when the visibly frustrated leader of the Cenation climbed up on the ring apron, the referee became distracted. From there chaos reigned with Styles being able to ultimately seize the moment, grab The Lunatic Fringe’s tights and roll him up to retain the championship.
However, the action was far from over after the match, with Cena laying out both Ambrose and Styles out with Attitude Adjustments, clearly making a statement toward claiming his 16th World Championship at No Mercy.
During the Richmond Wizard World event last weekend, Dean took part in an audience Q&A. We already posted video from the event however, for crystal clear audio, you can give a listen to the file below. Courtesy of WrestlingAudio.com
Dean Ambrose Def. John Cena
After the harsh insults they exchanged and the Dirty Deeds that Dean Ambrose struck John Cena with last week, the two held nothing back in trying to push their ascent toward the WWE World Championship this week. The two went back and forth, sweeping the WWE Universe up and pushing themselves to their limits in the process until, finally, The Lunatic Fringe caught Cena sleeping with a rollup for a huge pinfall victory.
After the match, AJ Styles, seeing an opportunity, dashed to ringside and got shots in on both Cena and Ambrose before immediately beginning to celebrate his “accomplishment.”
His celebration would not last long though, as SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan announced that Ambrose still was owed his promised one-on-one rematch for the WWE World Championship and he would get that next week on SmackDown LIVE!
Styles then got a taste of next week when he was met with a surprise Dirty Deeds from Ambrose, setting the stage for the colossal championship match.
Hell hath no fury like Dean Ambrose cheated out of a Championship. As he informs AJ on Smackdown, titles come and go and wins and losses happen, but when you cheat to win and kick him in the family jewels to take his prize away from him, you become his enemy. That’s something he isn’t about to forgive and he’s now cursing AJ with the same hex he put on Seth Rollins. And ask Rollins, Ambrose on your tail isn’t a fun hell hound to have as a shadow. However, John Cena for some reason takes exception to this and chooses to butt in and tell Dean he cheated too back on Smackdown when he hung AJ by his groin off the ropes (that wasn’t a championship match, John. AJ wasn’t even in the match, John… I digress) and further insults Dean by telling him he doesn’t have the balls to step up. Dean laughs in his face and lets him know what he thinks of him.. that he doesn’t care what he has to say, the opinion of a washed up part timer doesn’t mean much. Thems fighting words, and as it seems like they might come to blows. Shane McMahon intervenes. Telling them there’ll be a triple threat at No Mercy (Cena gets a title shot for what reason? Its a mystery!) and Dean will get a one on one shot later on down the line if he’s not victorious. Well, I guess it’ll have to do. Leaving Smackdowns main event a tag match with Dean and John having to co-exist.
Co-exist they do, quite well actually. Picking up the win against AJ and The Miz, John Cena is all smiles and seemingly forgetting that he insulted Dean at the start of the show and their beef isn’t over. Dean takes Cena by surprise and drives his face in to the mat with an out of nowhere Dirty Deeds. Plenty more where that came from. Dean might no longer be the ‘face that runs the place’.. but he’s definitely the face ready to tear the place apart. Ooh, we like it. Here’s what WWE.com had to say!
Following the controversial close to Backlash, which saw AJ Styles defeat Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Championship by sneaking in a low-blow, the new titleholder opened SmackDown LIVE with nothing but celebration on his mind … but then John Cena shockingly returned, claiming he only had one goal in mind — becoming a 16-time World Champion. Meanwhile, Dean Ambrose stormed out wanting retribution on Styles, but was also quickly met with a tongue lashing from Cena himself.
SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon soon completely halted “the champ that runs the camp’s” victory lap and called time on Ambrose and Cena’s personal war of words, stating that thanks to The Phenomenal One’s actions at Backlash, he would now defend his newly-won crown at SmackDown LIVE’s next exclusive event, No Mercy, against both Dean Ambrose and the returning John Cena!
Shane then also informed all three competitors that, in addition to the No Mercy main event, SmackDown LIVE’s main event would be Cena and Ambrose against Styles and a partner of his choosing! The SmackDown LIVE Universe instantly said “Yes, please” to No Mercy.
AJ Styles struggled to find a partner for this main event match against John Cena and Dean Ambrose all evening until finally Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan appointed him one – local competitor James Ellsworth.
The WWE World Champion looked as though he would have preferred no partner to the slender-framed Ellsworth. However, the champion’s problem would not remain a problem for long, as The Miz soon came from behind Ellsworth and attacked him, screaming out that he was the “main event” and signaling to Styles that he would take his place in the match. The WWE World Champion and Intercontinental Champion would now team together to take on Cena and Ambrose.
These four mega-Superstars did not hold back, all busting out with their best to put the other side down. The action in the match’s final moments was furious with Ambrose taking out Styles with a Suicide Dive and Cena finishing off Miz with an Attitude Adjustment for the win.
There would be no mutual respect shown between partners, however, as Ambrose did not hesitate to strike with Dirty Deeds on Cena after their victory.
AJ Styles talks a big game, but the new WWE World Champion may have talked himself into a major corner when he battles both Dean Ambrose and John Cena in a Triple Threat Match at WWE No Mercy.
On his first SmackDown LIVE after low-blowing Dean Ambrose out of the WWE World Title, The Phenomenal One proclaimed that, since he’d made good on his promise to become champion, his word was now infallible and that everything he says from here on out should be taken as fact. So, for instance, if he was to claim that he could beat The Lunatic Fringe and John Cena, whom he knocked off at SummerSlam, in the same match, the WWE Universe would just have to take his word for it.
Luckily, SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon was happy to arrange just such a test for Styles, putting Ambrose’s guaranteed one-on-one rematch on the shelf (he’ll get it at a later date, according to Shane) in favor of a Triple Threat Match between Styles, a frothing Ambrose and Cena, who returned for the first time since his defeat at SummerSlam to make a play for a potentially record-tying 16th World Championship.
Can AJ Styles cement his status as the new “Face That Runs the Place”? Or is his time up before it even began? Find out on WWE No Mercy, live Sunday, Oct. 9, at 8 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.
Backlash became a low blow to Dean Ambrose fans everywhere as AJ Styles used the illegal maneuver to take down the Champ at the end of a brutal bout, and pin Dean for the WWE Championship. Dean’s unlikely to let the title slip from his grasp without a further fight, and he’s certainly not going to let it finish on a kick to the family jewels. Here’s what WWE.com had to say:
AJ Styles def. Dean Ambrose to win the WWE World Championship
AJ Styles beat Dean Ambrose at Backlash to become WWE World Champion. There’s no question about that. It’s how Styles beat Ambrose, however, that will be questioned for a long time to come.
The two Superstars may have checked all the boxes of an instant classic in this heart-pounding title showdown. Styles couldn’t help but resort to a low-blow to put the champion down and take his title, though. Before that unfortunate ending, this wild melee saw Styles topple over both the announcer’s table and the barricade, and both men came literally less than a second away from snatching the victory. The Lunatic Fringe connected with Dirty Deeds and The Phenomenal One locked in the Calf Crusher, but neither was able to secure the win.
It was not until Styles snuck in a low-blow — while the referee was temporarily down — and then hit the Styles Clash that was he able to capture his first WWE World Championship.
As Styles celebrated with the championship — his first since arriving at Royal Rumble earlier this year — the feeling in the air seemed different than past champions’ crownings. Styles was as phenomenal as always and his spot atop the mountain was well-earned, but the manner in which he won the most prestigious championship in all of WWE certainly may prove to be, pardon the pun, a low-blow to his legacy.
