AJ Styles Promo
AJ Styles came out and he looked pretty focused after 371 days as WWE Champion. Styles said it’s been 14 days since he lost the WWE Title and that seems longer than the time when he was champion.
Styles said he hates losing, but it was the way that he lost that he really hates. Then they played a clip of him losing the title via a low blow from The New Daniel Bryan.
Styles said he knew he would have a target “but who’da thunk it would have moved to somewhere else,” he said while referencing his crotch… then he said he wasn’t medically cleared to be at Survivor Series or SmackDown Live last week.
Then they played a clip of Daniel Bryan’s explanation from last week. AJ said Daniel’s explanation sounded like BS and he said they didn’t have to wait until TLC because they can do this right then and there. But Daniel Bryan isn’t there.
Styles said Bryan wasn’t even at the live events this weekend including Starrcade and then he made a crack about how maybe Daniel’s been watching Raw and he ha an idea how they do things over there.
AJ told Daniel to rest up in his hyperbaric chamber and get ready for TLC and don’t forget the WWE Championship at TLC because he’s taking it back home.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs Rusev
Rusev had no Lana with him this week.
As soon as Rusev got in the ring, Nakamura jumped him from behind with a knee and then he hit a Kinsasha that sent Rusev out of the ring.
Referees came down and ran Shinsuke off… but he still hit another Kinsasha on Rusev before leaving. Nakamura never even took off his entrance jacket. That was a shame for Rusev.
Winner: Nobody, Including The Audience
