WWE SmackDown LIVE Results: December 20, 2016

Triple Threatened.

The 905th edition of WWE SmackDown LIVE came to you, live, from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, MI. After coming up short, thanks to The Miz, in a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match last week to determine a new #1 Contender for the WWE Championship, Dean Ambrose would likely not be in a great mood on SmackDown LIVE and his mood may go from bad to worse when “The Lunatic Fringe” goes one-on-one with SmackDown Tag Team Champion and Wyatt Family member Luke Harper. With fellow Wyatt Family members Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton likely not far behind, will Dean Ambrose be able to contend with all three members of The Wyatt Family? How will Dean Ambrose react to being cost a shot at the WWE Championship by The Miz?
