Swann has been out with a foot injury since the 30th January - which meant 205 Live had to hold a Fatal Fiveway number one contender's match to decide Neville's WWE Fastlane challenger.
WWE rumors have for weeks pointed to Bray Wyatt vs.
By the end of the match, it was Bray who was the champ! John Cena eventually came out and took issue with the fans chanting "You deserve it", because no one deserves anything, they earn what they get. AJ Styles is the first name confirmed for the battle royal.
Corbin challenging Ambrose for the Intercontinental title seems like the next step.
Worst Match of the Night: American Alpha def. Unless WWE goes a different route and has American Alphas feud with the Usos or Ascension heading into Wrestlemania, they have no option but to bring up Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder.
Who will rise out of the Turmoil to challenge American Alpha? Dean Ambrose worked like insane here, throwing himself all over the ring, and the match was non-stop action for 25:00 with the "big fight feel" that the announcers constantly tell us we should be feeling. Ambrose wanted to take out his frustrations on Ellsworth, but Corbin assaults Ambrose on the stage, and throws him through a table near some electrical equipment. There will be plenty of opportunities for Lynch to get wins back on SmackDown. Mickie gets frustrated and rolls to the outside. Becky throws Mickie over the top rope out to the apron, then kicks her off down to the floor at ringside. Becky follows her down to the floor and they brawl around ringside.
It was an attempt to cement Ziggler's heel status and while he's living up to his end of the bargain, the live crowd felt a little disinterested. John Cena lost his title in the Elimination Chamber, getting pinned by eventual champion Bray Wyatt, and Alexa Bliss lost her title to Naomi.
As the night went on, the lunatic fringe, Dean Ambrose was attacked by Baron Corbin at the backstage and The Lone Wolf dragged him out to the ramp.
Styles and Cena started off the bout and re-ignited their feud inside the steel structure as the other Superstars awaited their turn to enter the match. AJ Styles comes flying out of the ring with a forearm shot to Wyatt on the floor at ringside. Wyatt looked incredibly strong in victory, pinning both AJ and Cena.
Back in the ring Cena hit an AA on Styles but that was soon switched into Styles' calf crusher finisher and then reversed into Cena's STF. Ziggler says that was a wakeup call to the New Era and no one is going to replace him. Cena attempts an AA, but Bray gets out and attempts the Sister Abigail. That swindle. But Bray was still allowed to win this match without cheating, besting Styles with a clean and crisp Sister Abigail.
