WWE SMACKDOWN RESULTS - NOV. 8, 2016
AJ Styles makes his way to the ring since he is part of the Smackdown men's team for The Survivor Series.
AJ tells everyone to give him a break. He is in no mood for your cheers or your boos. He does not want to see your tweets. AJ tells everyone to put down their phones, have a seat, and be quiet. AJ says he is interested in the travesty that happened last week. Dean Ambrose cheated. He cheated and now he has a shot at his WWE Title at TLC? Dean does not belong in the same ring as him. If he cared so much about this championship, he never would have lost it. If that mutant turtle James Ellsworth did not get involved. Ellsworth is an embarrassment to sports entertainment and humanity.
AJ says that if Ellsworth and Dean were here, he would kick the ugly off both of them. They would never fly Ellsworth here. AJ says he was told not to have any physical contact with Dean Ambrose because of Survivor Series. He does not need Dean's help to beat Raw, but he is a part of the team and he wants to kick Raw's ass. As the de facto captain of Smackdown, it is up to him to get his team on the same page and beat the crap out of Raw.
Baron Corbin's music plays and interrupts AJ and he makes his way to the ring. AJ tells Baron he can do whatever he wants as long as he delivers at Survivor Series. Baron says he will deliver but not for AJ's team.
The lights go out and back on and Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, and Luke Harper are now at ringside and they get on the apron. AJ welcomes the Wyatts to Team Styles.
Dean Ambrose's music plays and he makes his way to the ring but he goes back to the top of the ramp to bring out James Ellsworth. Dean tells AJ to calm down. He says James is his guest and he has never been to Scotland before. Dean asks James if he has had a fun time and he asks how can you say no to this face. AJ wants Ellsworth out of his ring and nowhere near him at Survivor Series. Dean says if you have a problem with James Ellsworth, you have a problem with Glasgow and you have to go through him. AJ says they may be on the same team at Survivor Series, but right now you are out numbered. Baron leaves the ring and walks away.
The Wyatts make their way into the ring and... Shane McMahon's music plays and he Shane-O Shuffles on his way to the ring.
Shane says he wants to talk to Team Blue. He asks them if they want to prove they are the best in the business? In order to prove that, you have to defeat your adversaries on Raw. You need to be on a united front and the same page. You need to put all of these personal differences to the side. The big picture is that Team Blue will be victorious at Survivor Series. Shane says if you can harness the energy and passion of James Ellsworth with your talent, they will not only beat Raw, but it will be a clean sweep. Shane says that James suggested something and James says he will be the official mascot for Team Smackdown at Survivor Series. Shane says they are going to get some of these issues out of the way. Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, and Randy Orton will face Dean Ambrose, Baron Corbin, and James Ellsworth tonight.

Shane says that Baron Corbin can be in a match against Kalisto now.
