Ellsworth offers explanation on Talking Smack
Ellsworth revealed his rationale behind costing Ambrose the WWE World Championship during Talking Smack minutes after the TLC main event.
“That was, like, the best strategy ever, right?” he asked SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan.
“I’ve defeated AJ Styles three times and now I get my guaranteed WWE world title match against AJ Styles. I have his number, so I’m going to win the WWE world title!”
Ellsworth dismissed the idea he’d only been able to beat Styles with Ambrose’s help. He also shied away from discussing the Styles Clash that left him in a neck-brace, leaving Bryan and Renee Young as dumbfounded as they had been at the start of Talking Smack.
However misguided Ellsworth may be, he’ll challenge AJ Styles for the WWE World Championship on SmackDown Live this Wednesday.
