Tonight's main event on Smackdown saw one of the most unlikely WWE Championship matches of all time go in the favour of the underdog.

James Ellsworth, the man who - with the help of Dean Ambrose - defeated the WWE Champion AJ Styles last week took on the champion again, but this time, the title was on the line.

Lost match, lost control

The match itself once again highlighted the vast difference between Styles and Ellsworth, but also shined a spotlight on Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose was a t ringside and was constantly doing anything he could to distract the champion.

It was likely down to the presence of Ambrose that Styles would go on to lose the match - but still regain his championship.

With Ambrose asking Styles if that was "the best you can do?", he began an assault on his opponent in the corner of the ring.

Ignoring the referee's five count would see Styles disqualified and Ellsworth named as the winner of the match.

No title for Ellsworth however as the title can't change hands on a disqualification.

Ellsworth now holds two victories over Styles  - both in questionable circumstances but victories none the less.

It would appear that Smackdown's Ellsworth experiment is not over yet and with him now having entrance music and graphics, who knows what they could have planned for him.
