After the frustrating events of Hell in a Cell Dean Ambrose is in no mood to play. Despite being put in to a match against Cesaro he has other things on his mind. Not just suffering another loss to the traitor Seth Rollins, but the man behind that loss. Bray Wyatt. Dean wants answers and he wants them now. Storming to the ring he jumps on to the announce table and says that last night he went to hell and he loved every second of it, he loved beating Seth Rollins to a pulp and he came so close to that victory. Bray Wyatt? He doesn’t know why Bray interjected himself but he does know it was a bad move to make. Doesn’t Bray know the laws of the jungle? Never tangle with a beast that has sharper claws than yours.
With that said, Dean rips off his hoodie and tears in to Cesaro, beating him senseless with his microphone. Cesaro scrambles to escape the rabid Ambroses vicious assault but eventually he backs off himself, grabbing the mic again and returning to the ring he says he doesn’t believe in Hocus Pocus and magic tricks. Bray just needs to get his ass out there immediately, and get it kicked. Bray doesn’t disappoint. Although he doesn’t come out to face him. More mind games as he appears on the Titantron and at least offers explanation. He sees a lot of his own insanity in Dean Ambrose. They’re both men that have been tortured by the system, that have been made in to the animals they are today by the situations they grew up in. They both thrive off of the darker, seedier side of life.
Maybe this is fascinating to Bray, he quickly states he’s not Deans friend or brother. Maybe this town just ain’t big enough for the two of them. For whatever reason, Bray wants to destroy Dean Ambrose. Leaving things on these chilling words: “I’m going to dismantle your mind, and feast on the spoils.”
Tonight Dean finally got his hands on Seth Rollins in the match we’ve all been waiting for and in typical Lunatic style he got things off to a hectic start after filling the ring with weapons. Climbing to the top of the Cell to beckon Rollins down and taunt him in to starting the match up there. Not something Rollins want’s any part of! Instead he sends up his two cronies Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury while Dean waits and brandishes the kendo stick he brought with him. Once the two suits reach the top, the beatings begin. Dean laying in to both of them viciously until Rollins finally shows his face, scaling the Cell and rushing Dean from behind. The two immediately launch in to a brawl but the numbers game catches up to Dean and soon Mercury and Noble have him pinned on the Cell while Seth taunts him, threatening to throw him off. Dean fights his way out and after dispatching Noble and Mercury, sets his sights on Rollins. Seth immediately retreats, climbing over the edge of the cage only for Dean to follow. Dean catches him on his way down and the two battle precariously on the side of the Cell, until they both lose their footing and in the first ‘Holy Shit’ moment of the match, crash through the announce tables with shades of Mick Foley echoing behind them.
The match seems to come to a halt as medics are called to ringside and both men are loaded on to stretchers. However as Rollins is wheeled away, Ambrose comes to and fights his way out of the restraints, bolting after Rollins who isn’t escaping his clutches again. Dean tears him from the gurney and hurls him back inside the Cell, slamming the door after them and demanding it be locked. Once sealed inside the Cell with Rollins, it’s game on.
Dean dips in to his bag of tricks and pulls out duct tape and screwdrivers before deciding a chairs more his speed right now. Sitting down on one and taunting Rollins, he says this is what you get for stabbing him in the back. He proceeds to batter Rollins with the chair, the other man wailing in pain. Music to our ears. Dean lays on the torture thick and it isn’t until – after crashing through a table together on the outside – Kane sprays Dean in the face with a fire extinguisher, that the momentum turns in Rollins favor. The sneaky two toned traitor taking advantage of the opportunity given to him he puts Dean through another table and curb stomps him inside the ring. But Dean’s not going out easy, kicking out of the curb stomp and fighting back. Turnabouts fair play and Dean finds himself some cinderblocks on the outside. Setting them up in the ring and setting Rollins head upon them, he’s about to deal Rollins the same blow he was dealt, when the lights go out and a mysterious chant begins.
A light returns but its a single lamp in the middle of the ring, the chant continuing as what appears to be a ghost rises from the lamp. Dean looks utterly confused by this turn of events and as he tries to figure out just what the heck is going on, Bray Wyatt appears from nowhere and bulldozes in to him.
When the lights come back up, Bray stalks the fallen Ambrose like prey. Striking him again, he sits by as Rollins picks up the pin, another victory for the traitor. Boo. But Bray Wyatt isn’t done. As Rollins crawls away Bray lifts Dean and plants a kiss on his head before nailing him with his ‘Sister Abigail’ finisher. Spreading his arms wide over Deans fallen body and leaving us with one question: Why?
Ambrose opens up the final Smackdown before Hell in a Cell and it’s one last opportunity to address the crowd as well as Rollins – who as usual is lurking backstage in Uncle Kane’s office – Dean has a few reminders for everybody. The laws of physics don’t apply to him, you knock him down he just keeps coming right back up again. He mentions Mick Foley and the warnings he gave on Monday night at RAW, but theres one vital difference between Dean Ambrose and Mick Foley. Mick Foley was a nice guy, a family man. Ambrose? He has none of that holding him back. No family to worry about and nothing else to fight for other than revenge. He’s a man driven and with nothing to lose, theres nobody more dangerous.
Seth Rollins decides to speak up from the safety of his locked room somewhere backstage, he sticks the knife in a little harder and a little further, telling Dean The Shield was never about them, or a cause, or ‘Believing’. It was just about him and positioning himself in the best spot possible. Seths selfishness truly knows no bounds and infuriated by this, Dean’s last words before all hell breaks lose on Sunday are the following: “At Hell in a Cell we’ll burn together, but you’re going to perish alone.”
Later on in the night Rollins decides to call out Ambrose himself, with some security in the form of the Cruiserweight Division and a table of toys behind him. He lists all the things he’s going to do to Dean at Hell in a Cell – What, couldn’t come up with your own ideas, Seth? Didn’t Dean do this on Monday? Some Architect! – At any rate, Seth goes through his weapons including handcuffs and a steel pole, then calls Dean out, to no answer. Seth calls Ambrose a coward, says he might be smarter than he looks by not showing up. He calls for a replay of Monday night and when we come back from that, guess who’s appeared behind him?
Dean rushes the ring and launches a kendo stick attack on Rollins. His ‘security’ are quick to his defense, mauling Dean to the ground, but he fights them off. Seth escapes before any real damage can be done but Dean decides to make an example of Mercury and Noble. Setting them up on the tables, he drives an elbow through both men one at a time. Second thoughts, Rollins?
RollingStone.com have a new interview up with Dean discussing his path to Hell in a Cell and more! You can check out the full interview/article in the link below.
It’s an unusually warm mid-October afternoon in New York City, and WWE superstar Dean Ambrose (real name: Jonathan Good) has an uncharacteristic window of time off, which he’s choosing to spend at his girlfriend’s place in the Big Apple. Otherwise, the 28-year-old rising phenomenon currently calls Las Vegas home – he’s originally from a low-income section of Cincinnati’s east side – though most nights he’s traveling coast-to-coast, plying his trade at TV tapings and non-televised house shows.
The latter coliseum and county-center events are where Ambrose – who’s on a red-hot run as one of the company’s top faces, just months after his villainous faction the Shield disbanded – really experiments with the so-called “unstable” aspects of his in-ring persona. (“I’m the only normal person here,” he counters.) Without the added boundaries of a broadcast production, he might take a couple extra suicide dives through the ropes or elbow drops off the top turnbuckle, or maybe not enter the squared circle whatsoever.
“I’m trying all kinds of crazy stuff at house shows just for my own amusement and to see what the people are gonna do,” he says. “Ya know, start a match, jump me in the aisle, and I’ll just fight from underneath the whole time. I don’t need a shine. I don’t need to arm-drag you four times. They know who I am.”
Dean spoke with Gordon Holmes of Xfinity and talked about Hell in a Cell, Brock Lesnar and more. Head on over to the website for the full interview and check out an excerpt below!
WWE’s Dean Ambrose on Hell in a Cell: ‘I’m Looking to Raise the Bar a Little Bit’
Vengeance has always been a prominent motivation in sports entertainment. Hulk Hogan spent his career battling turncoats like Paul Orndorff, Andre the Giant, and “Macho Man” Randy Savage. The Undertaker squared off against his evil half-brother Kane on several occasions. And, Shawn Michaels went toe-to-toe with his former Dudes with Attitude partner Kevin Nash.
So, when Seth Rollins betrayed his Shield brothers, it was only natural for Dean Ambrose to want to get back at him. The main difference? While Hogan, Taker, and Michaels used legdrops, chokeslams, and superkicks to gain a measure of revenge on their rivals, Ambrose has employed ketchup, mustard, and green slime.
To each his own.
I spoke with WWE’s “Lunatic Fringe” in the days before his Hell in a Cell brawl with Seth Rollins and had a chance to ask him about living up to the Cell’s legacy, his path to WWE stardom, and what it’s like to be cheered after growing up a bad guy…
Any questions? Drop me a line on Twitter: @gordonholmes
Gordon Holmes: This Sunday you’re entering Hell in a Cell with Seth Rollins. This match has a legacy of amazing, brutal bouts. How are you going to stand out? Dean Ambrose: Going into anything like this, you want to put your own stamp on it. You want to do something that’s never been done before. I hate a formula. I hate stepping in the footsteps of those that came before me. And Seth has the same mindset. Even though we’re enemies and opponents, and are going to be trying to rip each other’s heads off in the Cell. Holmes: You’ve got a straight-up comparison that night as John Cena and Randy Orton are going to be having their own Hell in a Cell match. Ambrose: The kind of guys that we are and you go back to the competitive chips we have on our shoulder. You go back to the attitude that we came into this company with? We’re going to blow anything they put up out of the water. You know what I mean? Holmes: I do, looking forward to it. Ambrose: (Laughs) If you know anything about me, you know that I don’t have any trepidation. I’m not going to walk into there shaking in my boots. It’ll be my first time and Seth Rollins’ first time. I’m not afraid to take a risk. And Seth Rollins isn’t afraid to take a risk. I don’t see anything that Seth Rollins can do to me, or the Authority, or the Cell is anything worse than anything I’ve been through. I’m looking to raise the bar a little bit. And it’s hard because the Cell is a lot higher than it used to be. Holmes: Yes, this isn’t the Cell Mick Foley was tossed off of. Ambrose: I don’t think people realize. It’s like 20-foot higher! Well, I don’t know the exact height. It’s significantly higher than the one (Mick) Foley fell off of. I think that was done to prevent anybody from trying to jump off of it again. Now, it’s quite literally impossible to jump off of. It’s hard to do anything new inside that thing now. But fortunately I’ve got a big toolbox of ideas, man. This ain’t my first time at the rodeo even though it’s my first time in the Cell. I’ve got a nice cache of little ditties that I can bust out. I’m determined to do something that nobody has ever seen before in the Hell in a Cell.

Show: Smackdown October 3rd, 2014 Match: Ambrose & Cena Vs Kane & Orton (No Contest) Summary: John Cena and Dean Ambrose remained obsessed with individually getting payback on Seth Rollins, but they turned their focus to battling Corporate Kane & Randy Orton in SmackDown’s main event. When Mr. Money in the Bank emerged in the height of the hard fought match, however, Cena abandoned his tag team partner and ignited a brawl with his foe that stretched all the way to the back. The actions of the 15-time World Champion left the war-torn Ambrose to face the combined aggression of his opponents alone, and the fact that their double-team brought an end to the match by disqualification couldn’t have mattered less. After Kane hit the chokeslam on the unstable Superstar, WWE's Apex Predator finished him off with the RKO. By the time Cena returned to the ring, the damage had already been done.
