The fallout from Survivor Series begins along with the build toward TLC! Check the results from Survivor Series here.
PROMO (In-Ring): Shane McMahon is here, and he starts off with an apology for not being his regular self as he feels like he has been in a car accident after the 5 on 5 at Survivor Series. He gives props to Team Raw, and especially Roman who nearly split him in half with a spear. He then talks about Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt who were the soul survivors for Team SmackDown. He bring up the rest of the squad with Ambrose and Styles, and that brings out the Lunatic Fringe. Dean doesn't understand the sad, low energy boss, and Shane jumps on him for him joining his Raw Shield members in power bombing AJ through a table. He tells him to stop focusing on the negatives, and then brings out James Ellsworth who was responsible for elimination Strowman. Ellsworth comes out in a neck brace after Braun throws him through a table. Dean says that Shane has a surprise for James, and Shane was going to do it in private in the back.. But James Ellsworth is getting a SmackDown Live contract. Shane says with Dean being out of control as of late, he gives him the night off. Not only have the night off, but he needs to leave the building. As he's leaving, he's greeted by his TLC opponent and WWE Champion, AJ Styles. AJ says that Dean should be kicked off SmackDown Live not just out of the building. He doesn't deserve a title shot at TLC after what he did at Survivor Series, and he whole heartedly disagrees with James getting a contract. Shane says he deserves it, but again AJ disagrees. He says he didn't earn anything, and he is being given a contract. He says that if he wants to deserve a contract then he should face him tonight, and they should make it a ladder match for a warm up for TLC. If he climbs the ladder and grabs the contract, then he has earned it. But if AJ gets it first, he will rip it up in front of his face. James says he has no problem with that as he has already beaten AJ twice, but if he wins he doesn't want just a full time spot he wants a future title shot. He wants it all or nothing at all, and Shane makes it official. A ladder match between AJ and James Ellsworth for the contract of James Ellsworth.
PROMO (Backstage): Miz and Maryse are in the middle of a photoshoot, and Daniel Bryan says that they need to wrap it up. And Miz says it is "Mizgiving" and Daniel Bryan will have to thank him for keeping the title on SmackDown. Bryan says that he embarrassed SmackDown in the way he won. Since Kalisto would have won the Cruiserweight Title had Baron Corbin not interrupted it, Kalisto will get an Intercontinental Championship match right now.
PROMO (Backstage): Shane is walking Dean out the building making sure he leaves.
INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: The Miz (c) (w Maryse) vs. Kalisto

After the match, Corbin beats up Kalisto. And Dolph Ziggler hits Miz with a super kick on the stage.
PROMO (Backstage): Daniel tells Shane that he is going to take care of everything thats happened, and Alexa comes in. Alexa asks when she gets her rematch, and Becky Lynch comes in and says she'll get her rematch at TLC. Then Natty comes in and says she did her part as coach, and she blames the loss on Becky Lynch. To Becky's surprise, and Natty says that its because she is threatened by Alexis and that caused her to be a distraction. Shane is still upset about what happened to Nikki as he thinks that would be a different result. So he sets up a match between Natty and Becky tonight, and in comes Dean with a pizza saying he knew Shane was hungry. Shane takes a slice and tells Dean to leave. Again.
