The two would clash twice more on the show before Smackdown general manager finally decided to get involved.
Bryan made a match between the two that would have huge ramifications for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and for Backlash.
An interesting twist thrown on the match as Styles was named as the number one contender then and there.
His match with Ziggler would decide what match we will see at Backlash, a win for Ziggler would include him in the title picture and make it a triple threat at Backlash.
Ziggler couldn't overcome Styles though - hard as he tried and he suffered his second loss of the week despite another good performance.
It is unclear where Ziggler goes here as he will surely try to work his way back to the top, but the question has to be asked, has he had his final chance?
