Flair for the Gold?
Twelve nights before No Mercy, the 893rd edition of WWE SmackDown Live came to you, live, from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, OH. While the Triple Threat Match for the WWE World Championship is set for No Mercy in just under two weeks, who will walk into the SmackDown-exclusive pay-per-view is still undetermined as, after AJ Styles used a low blow out of sight of the referee to aid him in beating Dean Ambrose to win the WWE World Title at Backlash, the rematch would take place on SmackDown Live as, in a rare WWE World Title match on SmackDown Live, AJ Styles would make his first defense of the WWE World Championship against the man he beat under dubious circumstances at Backlash to win the title, Dean Ambrose! Can AJ Styles walk into No Mercy as the defending WWE World Champion or will Dean Ambrose regain the most prestigious title in WWE twelve nights before the Triple Threat Match? Speaking of the Triple Threat Match, will we see an appearance from the third man in the equation come No Mercy, John Cena?
