Shane McMahon announced in the opening segment of tonight’s SmackDown Live that AJ Styles would defend his WWE World Title against John Cena and Dean Ambrose at WWE No Mercy.
This is the first match announced for the event. WWE Backlash takes place on October 9, 2016, at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California
People should note that it’s unlikely John Cena will be winning because he is taking some time away from the ring after No Mercy for personal projects outside of the WWE. Aj Styles will be ending his feud with Ambrose and is scheduled to face a new foe after No Mercy.
