Everyone was a part of that and that is why he became World Champion. That is why he cannot walk away.
Dolph says he came to a crossroads and he had to put his career on the line because if he cannot deliver, he does not belong here. There is something that tells him he can deliver and that he can beat Miz and will become the Intercontinental Title on Sunday. He tells Miz that Miz is not taking his career from him. From the highs and lows, he is not done yet.

In the Arena:
WWE World Champion AJ Styles is out first. “San Diego…the champ is here!” Styles talks about Smackdown Live being the land of opportunity and agreeing with that. He talks about having the opportunity to beat John Cena at SummerSlam to become the “face that runs the place…and I did.” Styles said he had the opportunity at Backlash to beat Dean Ambrose to become the WWE World Champion “and obviously I did that too.” He brings up his next opportunity to beat both Cena and Ambrose at No Mercy.
Dean Ambrose is out next to interrupt.
Ambrose grabs a mic calling Styles “the clown that runs the town.” He talks about Styles finally making it to the big leagues and taking the low road at Backlash. “You threw that away. Congratulations, good for you,” adds Ambrose. Ambrose said he is mad because he had Styles beat last week when John Cena just had to interfere. He said Cena couldn’t stand the fact that he beat him and showed his true colors. Ambrose said Cena should thank him for even bringing that title to this show.
John Cena’s music hits to interrupt as he heads to the ring.
J tells John to shut up before he speaks. He says we already know what John is going to say so he tells him to shut up. AJ says John will talk about chasing history and becoming a sixteen time champion. How dare you compare yourself to an icon and legend like Ric Flair. AJ says he does not care how many championship John has won, Cena will never be in the same conversation as Ric Flair. Styles says he would not be worrying about Ric Flair's legacy, he should be worried about AJ Styles. It will be a long road if you chase history because AJ says he makes history. AJ tells John to give one of his rah rah speeches, but he will watch John make a fool of himself like he did at SummerSlam.
Dean tells John to stop and he says he will save John the trouble. John will say that Dean screwed himself last week and that he is his own worst enemy. You are going to spin it where the guy who got screwed over twice is the jerk. He calls Cena a political guy because of the way he spins things. You cut the legs out of people who try to top him. Dean says John cannot outhustle him. Dean mentions John's loyalty. Dean mentions zero sick days and zero days on the injured list. He has had more matches in the last two years. You have zero respect for him because he does not kick John's ass and ask him for advise and play his games. Dean says he has not played by John's rules.
If being a fake, plastic, suck ass behind the scenes to be a star, he will not be that. He talks about what John is playing.
