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 lilke 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.
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.
AJ is still in the back looking for a partner and he sees Kane. He tells Kane the face that runs the place needs a tag team partner. The Phenomenal One and the Devil’s Favorite Demon . . . that has a good sound to it.

No Mercy Preview: WWE World Champion AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose vs. John Cena
Published By: Brittany | Filed in: Pay-Per-View Previews, WWE.Com
AJ Styles talks a big game, but the new WWE World Champion may have talked himself into a major corner when he battles both Dean Ambrose and John Cena in a Triple Threat Match at WWE No Mercy.
On his first SmackDown LIVE after low-blowing Dean Ambrose out of the WWE World Title, The Phenomenal One proclaimed that, since he’d made good on his promise to become champion, his word was now infallible and that everything he says from here on out should be taken as fact. So, for instance, if he was to claim that he could beat The Lunatic Fringe and John Cena, whom he knocked off at SummerSlam, in the same match, the WWE Universe would just have to take his word for it.
Luckily, SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon was happy to arrange just such a test for Styles, putting Ambrose’s guaranteed one-on-one rematch on the shelf (he’ll get it at a later date, according to Shane) in favor of a Triple Threat Match between Styles, a frothing Ambrose and Cena, who returned for the first time since his defeat at SummerSlam to make a play for a potentially record-tying 16th World Championship.
Can AJ Styles cement his status as the new “Face That Runs the Place”? Or is his time up before it even began? Find out on WWE No Mercy, live Sunday, Oct. 9, at 8 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.

Backlash Preview: WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose vs. AJ Styles
Published By: Lisa | Filed in: Pay-Per-View Previews, WWE.Com
AJ Styles has pinned “The Face that Runs the Place,” twice. Now, The Phenomenal One sets his sight on The Lunatic Fringe that runs the asylum.
Styles will challenge WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose at WWE Backlash Sunday, Sept. 11, live on WWE Network. If Styles’ recent win streak is any indication, The Lunatic Fringe may be facing his biggest threat yet.
The Phenomenal One ensured the title match would remain a one-on-one contest by defeating former World Champion Dolph Ziggler on the Aug. 23 edition of SmackDown Live. Yet, even before that, Styles had accumulated an impressive string of major victories including, most notably, going 2-0 against John Cena in singles competition this summer.
Though the involvement of Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson tainted Styles’ first win over the Cenation leader, Styles needed no outside assistance to defeat Cena in their all-time classic return match at SummerSlam.
Styles might have the wind at his back heading into SmackDown Live’s first brand-exclusive pay-per-view, but he also has an unpredictable and unrelenting Lunatic Fringe staring him in the face on Sept. 11. Ambrose’s devil-may-care attitude has benefited his title reign thus far; will his kinetic style of fisticuffs continue to pay dividends against the dynamic force that is AJ Styles?
