James Ellsworth accidentally helps Dean Ambrose become number one contender

USA Network

Ol’ chinless, at it again.

The central story of tonight’s (Nov. 1, 2016) episode of SmackDown Live in Newark, New Jersey was Dean Ambrose getting another match with AJ Styles for the right to become number one contender to the WWE world championship. James Ellsworth, who cost him that much last week, was banned from ringside.

Throughout the night, he pleaded with Ambrose for Dean to allow him to come ringside for the match. Possessing a functioning brain, Ambrose told him no and did everything he could to get rid of him.

When the match came, Ellsworth ran down and once again very nearly cost Dean the match. That was until security ran out to run him out of the building, which would have worked just fine if they could have caught him to do so. When they finally did, he was already ringside again after hauling ass through the crowd. This time, Styles decided he would deal with the human noodle himself and laid him out.

When he went to jump back into the ring with the Phenomenal Forearm, Ambrose was ready with a kick to the gut and Dirty Deeds to win the match and become number one contender once again.

Ellsworth was dragged out by security with a smile on his face, having successfully paid his debt to Ambrose.
