1) Number one contender for the WWE Championship

The main event was the show-off Dolph Ziggler against Baron Corbin with the opportunity to become #1 contender for the WWE Championship. AJ Styles was on commentary. This match had non-stop momentum going back and forth and it was an unbelievable performance by Corbin. This performance proved that he deserves to be in the main event eventually.

Unfortunately, this match ended in a count out as Corbin threw Ziggler on top of Styles. Styles suddenly snapped and he took out both Ziggler and Corbin with a steel chair. SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan came out and announced next week on SmackDown LIVE’s Wild Card Finals, Styles will defend his WWE Championship against both Ziggler and Corbin in a triple threat match.

Natalya came out to explain that she did not attack Nikki Bella. However, Carmella came out and decided to snitch on Natalya stated that she told her that the Bella were not good as singles competitors that’s why the WWE paired them up as a team. Natalya snapped and threw Carmella through the Christmas stage. Natalya made the confession that she did indeed attack Nikki Bella at Survivor Series because it’s her time and Nikki has had her time.
