Tonight's show starts off with a look back at what happened on Backlash.  We saw two titles awarded for the first time and we also saw AJ Styles become the WWE Champion.

We are in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and your announcers are Mauro Ranallo, John Layfield, and David Otunga.

AJ Styles makes his way to the ring.

AJ says the Champ is HERE.  He says he hates to tell you that he told you so, but he wants to yell it . . . I TOLD YOU SO!!  Everything he said he was going to do, he did.  He told you that he was going to beat John Cena.  At SummerSlam, he beat John Cena and he is the face that runs the place.  Then he told you that he was going to beat Dean Ambrose.  At Backlash, he beat Dean and became the new WWE World Champion.  If he told you he could beat John Cena and Dean Ambrose with one arm tied behind his back, it is the truth.  It is the gospel.  AJ says if he gave you the lottery numbers, you would be a millionaire.  If he tells you the sky is green, there is no need to look.  The sky will be green.

His lips do not lie.  He says that he is the Champ that runs the Camp.  AJ repeats himself.  He says it one more time.

John Cena's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

John says you can hear these people and they know what he knows.  You have something that belongs to him and he would like it back.

AJ says he will give it back and he gives John his wrist band since AJ has the World Championship.  

John says that AJ still has something that belongs to him and the bad news is that he would like to take it back.  He wants the World Championship.  The greatest champion has said that to be the man, you have to beat the man.  If he can hold that gold one more time, he is in the conversation with the man.  John says he couldn't think of a better person to make history off of than you.  You are the face that runs the place.  John says he is the man who doesn't quit.  His goal is to say the Sixteen Time Champ is here.

Dean Ambrose comes to the ring and he gets in AJ's face.  Dean says you made the biggest mistake of your life on Sunday, boy.  He says he can handle losing the title, but you kicked him in the jewels to steal the title from him.  You have made Dean your enemy.  Your life changes when you are his enemy.  Dean promises to make your life miserable.  He will take back his title and he will do it with interest.  He will bury you in the ground . . . 

John asks Dean about complaining about hanging AJ by his crotch and the complaining about a low blow.  Steve Austin was right and you have not shown that you have balls.

Dean says that John must be mistaking him for someone who gives a damn about you or what you say.  He has heard enough of your rah rah.  You are a lazy part-timer.  You are better off doing television shows, movies, and talk shows because you cannot hang with him.  WWE uses you for media appearances but you cannot get it done in the ring.  Dean says you couldn't get past this chump at SummerSlam, so how are you going to beat him.

Shane McMahon's music plays and he shuffles on the stage before making his way to the ring.

Shane says with the talent in the ring and the emotion, he had to come out.  He tells AJ that him and John Cena tore the house down at SummerSlam.  You defeated John Cena clean and that is a huge accomplishment.  Shane says he does not like AJ saying he is the face that runs this place.  He earned it by beating Cena.  He says Dean and AJ tore the house down at Backlash.  Shane says AJ took the easy way out to win the title.  Shane says that is not how he saw a new champion being crowned.  AJ is the WWE Champion.

Shane says Dean will get his one-on-one rematch, but not right now. 

At No Mercy, AJ Styles will defend the WWE Championship against John Cena. . . . and Dean Ambrose in a Triple Threat match.

Shane says emotions are going so bonkers so tonight John Cena and Dean Ambrose will be in a tag team match against AJ Styles and a partner of his choosing.  Shane says if AJ cannot get a tag team partner, the General Manager can find one for him.

Match Number One:  Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso versus Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley

Jey goes after Ryder's injured leg and he takes him down and tags in Jimmy who continues to work on the leg.  Jey tags in and he kicks Ryder.  Jey with a knee bar but Ryder kicks Jey and tags in Mojo.  Jimmy tags in and Mojo with a clothesline and a pounce.  Mojo with a Stinger Splash and Jey misses a splash on Mojo.  Mojo sends Jey into Jimmy and Mojo with a splash into Jimmy.  Jimmy with a super kick to Mojo and Jimmy tags in and hits a frog splash for the three count.

Winners:  Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso

Miz walks in the back with his wife Maryse as we go to commercial.

We are back and Curt Hawkins advises us of some facts.  He says it is time to face the facts.

Miz makes his way to the ring with his wife Maryse.

Miz says for weeks Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, and most of the WWE Universe has been calling him a coward.  Miz says you can call him a coward because he walked out of Backlash with his wife by his side and the Intercontinental Title on his shoulder.  He says he has held the title longer than Pat Patterson, Triple H, and Dolph Ziggler.  He has made it more prestigious than it ever was.

Dolph Ziggler interrupts and he says it is a funny thing that Miz is holding the title belt while trying to act like he is the champion.  You know deep down inside that no matter what you do, any Superstar in the back who has laughed, you know why.  The WWE Universe will never see you as a top guy.  You will never ever be a true main eventer.  They will always see through you Miz.

Miz says he is the main event on every show he is on.  If he lived and died based on the fans, put him six feet under, just like Dolph's career.

Dolph says he is at a crossroads in his career.  Miz is crushing it, but you will always have that asterisk by your name, just like your win at Backlash.  Do you really want to earn some respect?  He asks for one more match.  No gimmicks, no valets, no girlfriends, no wives, no Maryse, no stunt doubles . . . just you and me.

Maryse want to get Dolph to clarify what he is saying.  Maryse wants to make sure that she is hearing that Dolph wants another match.

Daniel Bryan's music plays and he makes his way onto the stage.  Daniel says he could not shut his mouth while Miz' wife was talking.  He says Maryse cheated and she is the only reason Miz is still the champion.  He says Dolph will get his rematch.

Miz says that Dolph did not earn the right to be the number one contender in the first place and he does not deserve a rematch.  Miz says he wants his title renegotiated and Daniel will not get what he wants until Miz gets what he wants.  Miz says the title will not be defended until he gets what he wants.  He will be calling his own shots and there is nothing that Daniel can do about it.

Miz leaves the ring with Maryse when Daniel enters the ring.

AJ Styles walks in the back and he sees Baron Corbin and Baron wants to know what AJ wants.

AJ says he knows that Baron has a match against Apollo Crews but why not be his partner tonight.

Baron says he would rather be AJ's opponent than partner and he walks away as we go to commercial.

Match Number Two:  Baron Corbin versus Apollo Crews

Corbin attacks Crews before the bell rings and he knocks Crews off the turnbuckles.  Crews is sent into the ringside barrier and then Corbin hits End of Days on the floor.

Jack Swagger's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Corbin leaves the ring.

Jack takes the mic and he says call him Jumpin' Jack Flash because as of 12:01 AM, Smackdown is his home.  He says you may think you know his abilities in the ring, but he promises you that you don't know Jack.  Forget everything you know about Jack.  He will be a big problem.  He says we will be a big problem.

Becky Lynch walks in the back as we go to commercial.
