Tonight saw WWE Champion AJ Styles lose for the second week in a row to James Ellsworth - all thanks to Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose was the special guest referee last week in his match with Ellsworth and had a huge hand in dolling out a loss to the champion.

A date with destiny

Tonight Ambrose was just at ringside but he distracted Styles that much, he violated the referee's count of five and lost the match - despite regaining his title.

This has done nothing more than angered the WWE Champion who took matters into his own hands once Smackdown ended.

On the weekly instalment of 'Talkin' Smack', Styles would make an appearance and confront Smackdown Live general manager Daniel Bryan.

He would demand that Bryan make a match between himself and Dean Ambrose on Smackdown next week.

In a Backlash rematch, the two will go one on one for the third time since the WWE draft.

The added stipulation on the match is that a win for Ambrose will name him as the number one contender for the WWE Championship.

Ambrose has been the only man set to challenge Styles - except John Cena, since he claimed the title at Backlash and he could get another opportunity next week.

The only question mark is surrounding when Ambrose could get his title match with the upcoming Survivor Series PPV seemingly unlikely to host a WWE Title match.

Survivor Series will feature a host of matches pitting RAW superstars against Smackdown superstars in five on five traditional Survivor Series matches.

Styles is currently expected to be representing team Smackdown that night, so will we have to wait until TLC in December for Ambrose to get his shot - provided he beat Styles next week.
