The ring was filled with wrestlers after the break. They showed the tail end of No Way Jose’s entrance and Baron Corbin was the last to enter. They cut backstage to Dean Ambrose reacting to various moves in the match. He also chose to stand oddly sideways and turning his head sharply to look at the screen peripherally. The Lucha House Party eliminated Titus O’Neal. They cut to a break.
Lince Dorado eliminated Kalisto and then Balor eliminated Since. Other in the match were Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, Tyler Breeze, Konnor Viktor, Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins, and Mojo Rawley. Crews eliminated several wrestlers one after another including tossing Breeze onto six wrestlers at ringside. Corbin chokeslammed Crews. Cole declared Crews’s run “just about over,” meaning in Vince McMahon’s World of Heavy-handed Reverse Psychology, Crews was going to win. Corbin eliminated Balor. Boos. It came down to Ryder, Hawkins, Corbin, and Crews. Corbin laughed at Hawkins. He tossed him over the top rope, but Hawkins landed on the ring apron. He then yanked Corbin over the top rope by his neck, but Corbin held on and dropped Hawkins to the floor. Crews leaped off the top rope, but Corbin ducked and went for a chokeslam, but Crews avoided it and then he knocked Corbin out of the ring with an enzuigiri.
WINNER: Crews in 12:00 to earn an IC Title shot.
-Charlie Caruso interviewed Crews afterward in the ring. He said he has been asking for and begging for a fresh start like this. He said he can’t think of any better way to spend his last day of 2018 than becoming the new Intercontinental Champion.
(5) DEAN AMBROSE vs. APOLLO CREWS – Intercontinental Championship match
Grave asked Renee what Dean’s resolutions were. Renee said that’s not what married couples do. Cole said he and his wife do. Renee sarcastically said she sits with Dean at him “with a dream board.” Graves laughed at striking a nerve with her. They replayed what Triple H and Shane McMahon said to Dean earlier. As Crews came to the ring, Cole said IC Title wins can be a launching point to greatness, noting Steve Austin, The Rock, and Triple H. Graves said Crews grew up in a military family and WWE was his escape and he idolized Ricky Steamboat and Randy Savage. They did formal ring introductions. Crews attacked Dean before the bells, and the referee ridiculously rewarded it by calling for the bell after Crews got the unfair advantage. #Ruthless Aggression. Cole said Crews recognizes what an opportunity this match is Crews did a lightning fast backflip after some early offense against Ambrose. Ambrose retreated to ringside two minutes in and they cut to a break. [c]
Ambrose was in control after the break. Crews ducked a charging Ambrose, who tumbled to the floor. They collided mid-ring with simultaneous clotheslines. Crews rallied and kipped up. He let out a big roar. The post-production crowd noise editing didn’t make Crews seem super-over. Ambrose raked Crews’s eyes. Cole said the ref didn’t see it. (What if the ref did, though? Ambrose would have been given an empty warning, that’s all.) Ambrose set up a Dirty Deeds, but Crews escaped with an enzuigiri and then landed a sitout powerbomb for a near fall. Crew flip dove onto Ambrose on the floor, then threw him back into the ring. Crews climbed to the top rope and went for a frog splash, but Dean moved. Ambrose landed a Dirty Deeds for the win.
WINNER: Ambrose in 9:00 to retain the Intercontinental Title.
Despite the clean win I expect them to have a fued and for this not to be a one off thing.
Crews has a genuine gripe that he had to wrestle two matches in the same night, whilst the champ was rested.
It was odd and strange to book a babyface in that situation instead of waiting for the following week for the match to take place.

It wouldn't make sense for crews to have a rematch when there is already no more automatic rematch.

This was a one off and I see Dean maybe having a triple threat at the royal rumble with Crews if it ends up that way.

Nothing more than a short term feud I would think, I don't see WWE having any major plans in the works for Crewes right now which is a shame but it's hard to see him escaping jobber hell anytime soon.
