Style beat Ambrose in controversial fashion at Smackdown's first solo PPV and since then has become the biggest name on the show.
It took a low blow for Styles to overcome Ambrose at Backlash but tonight's match was a different form of chaos entirely.
John Cena was at ringside on commentary for the main event tonight and his presence arguably cost Ambrose the title.
Ambrose and Styles put on a great back and forth match but in the end, it was the mere fact that Cena was sat close by that saw it's resolution commence.
Styles attacked Cena out of the blue and when he tried to go after the Phenomenal one, he caught the attention of the referee.
After Cena got off the ring apron, Ambrose already had Styles in a pinning predicament but by the time the referee started counting, he only made it to two.
This prompted Ambrose to also attack Cena and cause his concentration to dip giving Styles the opportunity he needed.
Styles would pin Ambrose after pulling on his trousers to ensure his victory and guarantee that he will enter the No Mercy triple threat match as the champion.
In the aftermath, Cena would deliver the AA to both Ambrose and Styles to ensure that he left Smackdown on top.
