They have a TON of time left and we are up to the main event.

WWE World champion Dean Ambrose vs. AJ Styles

Styles demanded to be announced as "The Face That Runs the Place."  Styles tried to steal a win with a rollup and a small package but Ambrose kicked up.  Dean offered his jaw for Styles to hit.  They locked up and Styles took him to the ropes and told Dean that he owns him.  Dean hit him with a right and began whipping out slams and suplexes.  Styles went to the floor and Dean followed  Styles nailed him with a double axehandle as the champ returned to the ring.

Ambrose was worked over but executed a sunset flip for a two count.  Styles escaped and nailed a forearm.   Styles drilled him into the corner.  Dueling chants for each man.  Ambrose nailed a big backdrop.    Styles went to the floor.  Dean teased a dive but Styles slid in and caught him with a drop toehold as Ambrose raced across the ring.

Styles nailed a hangman's neckbreaker for a two count.  Styles picked up Dean and dropped him across the top rope.  Dean fought back but was nailed with a beautiful dropkick and covered for a two count.    Styles continued to work over Dean, telling him he can do this all night.  Styles wailed away on Dean in the corner.  Dean tossed him in the corner and stomped the hell out of Styles in the corner.  He charged Styles and nailed the ringpost shoulder-first.  Styles and Ambrose continued to battle.  Styles missed a splash in the corner.

They battled to the top where Ambrose nailed a brutal looking back suplex off the top into the ring.  Both men were down and were almost counted out.  Styles went to the floor.  Ambrose came off the top to the floor with an elbow.    Back in the ring, Ambrose missed a charge but caught Styles with a sit-out wheelbarrow facebuster for a close two count.

The battle continued until Styles caught Dean and drilled his knee down to the mat with all of Styles' weight behind it.  Dean began grabbing and screaming at the leg and the announcers pointed out that Styles had him set up for the Calf Crusher.  Styles began working on Dean's leg to worsen it's condition.   Styles locked in the Calf Crusher.  He tried to force a submission but Dean grabbed him and began beating his head into the mat, forcing a break.

Styles went for the Styles Clash but Dean grabbed the ropes.  Styles dumped him over it to the apron and nailed a step up enziguiri. Styles attempted to do it on the apron but Dean slipped out and catapulted Styles into the ringpost.  That was a pretty sweet exchange.  Ambrose nailed a bulldog but Styles kicked up.   Styles nailed a Fireman's Carry into a neckbreaker for a two count.

Styles nailed a backbreaker into a whirly bird for a two count.   Styles nailed a springboard 450 splash for a two count.   Ambrose caught him with a neckbreaker for a two count.  He unloaded with punches and strikes and nailed a sick dropkick that sent Styles rudely to the floor.  Styles was sent crashing over the announcing table following a tope suicida.  Styles was dumped over the barricade into the first row.  Ambrose charged across the tables and jumped off the barricade, coming off with a double axehandle.

Ambrose brought him back into the ring but was nailed with the Pele Kick.  Ambrose hit the rebound clothesline and went for Dirty Deeds but Styles shoved him backwards into the referee.  Styles kicked Dean low and nailed the Styles Clash and scored the pin.

Your winner and new WWE World champion!

Great back and forth match.  Styles has ascended and has become the first man since Kurt Angle to hold the WWE, NWA, TNA and IWGP championships.
