After the mayhem of Battleground Seth Rollins kicked off RAW by sulking to his daddy Triple H, saying that he deserved to be named number one contender for Summerslam. Triple H reminds him that’s pointless, he already has the MITB Briefcase and besides, he’s being hunted by Dean Ambrose – Muahaha. Seth insists he can take him out but Triple H seems less convinced, instead Cesaro makes an appearance and promises he can take out Ambrose permanently. Triple H makes the match for the Main Event.
Ambrose is more than happy to oblige. Looking at lot more pleased with himself than we saw on Smackdown, Ambrose arrives in the ring still with his shoulder taped, but the nice aftertaste of revenge still in his mouth. He and Cesaro barely wait for the bell before tearing in to each other and Ambrose is like a rabid dog on the attack, viciously assaulting Cesaro and tossing him out of the ring to the outside. Following him out by launching himself off of the apron on to Cesaro and beating him all around ringside. Dean throws Cesaro back in to the ring but as he gets in, Cesaro kicks him square in the shoulder. He follows that up by running Dean in to the ringpost. The dissection of his injured begins again. Cesaro picking him apart while backstage Orton, Rollins and Triple H watch on the monitors.
Cesaro gives Ambrose a taste of his own medicine, taking things to the outside with a brutal suplex then taking things back in. Cesaro twists his arm up in the center of the ring but Ambrose refuses to quit. You’d have to nuke him to get him to wave the white flag and even then he’d probably jab you in the eye with it instead. Dean absorbs the punishment and tries to make a comeback, knocking Cesaro out of the ring again, but as he tries to jump the ropes to attack, Cesaro hits him with that deadly European Uppercut in mid air. Things aren’t looking so good for Dean. During a commercial break Cesaro attacks the shoulder relentlessly, as we come back, Cesaro tries to suplex Dean off of the turnbuckles however he manages to take an advantage back, shoving Cesaro all the way down to the mat. Dean follows with his missile dropkick and despite his hurting shoulder, now it seems like Cesaro is hurting too! Adrenaline bites hard and Ambrose goes back on the attack. A suicide dive taking things back outside. They trade brutal clotheslines in the middle of the ring and Dean’s mental state begins to crumble, until eventually he’s had enough.
Outside, he grabs a chair and as Cesaro hands near the ringpost, Dean blatantly smashes him around the head and shoulders with it. Instantly earning himself a Disqualification. But does he care? Not at all. He grabs another chair and tosses it in to the ring, taking himself a casual seat as Cesaro bolts to the back, he gestures for the Authority to bring on more.
TAMPA, Florida — The WWE Universe might not have gotten the match they wanted between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins at WWE Battleground, but if you were expecting an all-out brawl between these two bitter rivals, it was impossible to be disappointed.
Early in the night, the always-unpredictable Ambrose ambushed Rollins during the Shield turncoat’s pre-match interview. The sudden attack — halted by a small army of referees, officials and security personnel — prompted Triple H to eject The Lunatic Fringe from the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Because Ambrose was barred from the building before his scheduled bout with Rollins, the vindictive Mr. Money in the Bank demanded that he be announced the winner of the match by forfeit and have his hand raised in victory.
However, Rollins had little opportunity to savor his “victory.” As he strode up the entrance ramp, Ambrose appeared out of nowhere and assaulted his one-time ally again, repeatedly throwing Rollins into the barricade and taking the fight into the crowd. After Ambrose grabbed Rollins by the hair and hurled him onto the Spanish announce table, a host of security personnel, WWE officials and even The Game himself intervened and pried apart the embattled former Shield brethren. Ambrose was dragged kicking and screaming from the arena a second time, while Rollins was taken to the locker room area by the incensed WWE COO.
Moments later, as Rollins attempted to flee the arena in his car, Ambrose —in true slasher movie fashion— emerged from Mr. Money in the Bank’s trunk and continued the pummeling. Rollins ultimately escaped the onslaught, but only barely.
Even though Rollins technically emerged victorious from WWE Battleground, The Authority’s “Plan B” hardly looked like a winner as he fled into the night. As for Ambrose, the unhinged Lunatic Fringe was left unsatisfied, and will no doubt continue his ongoing mission to prevent his former “brother” from cashing in his coveted Money in the Bank contract — or from being safe from him anywhere ever again.
WWE.com have the staff predictions up on the outcome of Sundays match, personally I have to say I’m with Joey Styles, I think this is going to get ugly – fast. What do you think? Share your thoughts on our Twitter or in Comments!
@JoeyStyles: There is just too much mutual animosity between these former Shield teammates for this match not to end in a double count-out, double disqualification or even a no-contest if they get their hands on each other before the opening bell rings. Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose is a very personal issue that needs to see these two locked in a steel cage so they can unleash their animalistic attacks in unfettered fashion. Until such time, no clear cut winner will emerge victorious. Winner: n/a
@HowardFinkel: I’m looking forward to seeing this match. These two know each other very well — perhaps too well. Yet, for me, I will give the nod to Ambrose, strictly because I truly believe that he wants Rollins more than Seth wants him. It’s that simple. WINNER: Dean Ambrose
Ryan Murphy: Is it strange that I’m concerned for Seth Rollins’ wellbeing? Sure, he’s sleazy, but he’s young and über talented and I hate the thought that Dean Ambrose is going to take five years off his career with the beating he gives him at WWE Battleground. That being said, Rollins asked for this. And if you poke a pit bull with a stick, you better be ready to get bit. WINNER: Dean Ambrose
James Wortman: Oh, man. How good is this going to be? This confrontation won’t be for the faint of heart, with The Lunatic Fringe embracing his more hardcore tendencies since ditching his tactical gear. Even though Ambrose suffered a debilitating backstage attack on Raw, the brawler seems to use his pain as a power source. Dirty Deeds await Rollins, who, despite his alignment with The Authority, won’t be able to match the ferocity of his former brother. WINNER: Dean Ambrose
John Clapp: In this likely “Match of the Night” contender, I fully anticipate an unhinged Ambrose, injured or not, redlining his engine and throwing caution to the wind from the word “go.” It’d be impossible for Rollins to not get flustered, but he’s called The Architect for a reason. The man’s a strategist, and by hook or by crook, he’s walking away with the win. WINNER: Seth Rollins
It’s been a disastrous week for Ambrose after taking a beating on RAW and being sent to the hospital, and then swearing revenge only to be attacked from behind by Rollins and curb stomped on to steel steps on Smackdown. Dean slips another spot on the rankings, but we’re pretty sure he’ll be clawing his way back up again soon.
WWE Battleground happens this Sunday, July 20 on the WWE Network, and Mike & Billy previewed the action with WWE’s own Dean Ambrose, formerly of The Shield.
Ambrose finally set the record straight with the guys on a certain nickname he’d “earned” recently. A trend emerged on Reddit while Ambrose was still in The Shield, when a fan held a sign referring to the superstar as the “Ti**y Master”. The moniker grew to become Ambrose’s unofficial nickname on the internet, but he quickly shot it down, claiming he’d never even heard that before.
“That’s why I don’t do the internet very much,” joked Ambrose, who has tweeted just three times since joining Twitter in 2012.
Ambrose faces former Shield partner Seth Rollins at Sunday’s pay-per-view. The two came up through the ranks together, but since Rollins betrayed the Shield the animosity has only grown. Ambrose promises this is only the beginning of an epic rivalry.
“I don’t think this is going to be the end,” he said. “I think me and him are going to be at each other’s throats and tearing it up and having spectacular matches for years and years down the line, but you’re going to get to see the first ones this Sunday.”
Ambrose made it clear that not only is he not taking Rollins’ betrayal lightly, he may even end up going TOO far in his vengeance.
“If I’m wronged, it gets ugly,” he said. “I hold grudges…I’m going to take it way too far. If you steal my mail, I will slash all four of your tires, throw a brick through your front window, and kidnap your dog.”
Ambrose has earned the reputation of a loose cannon, and he prefers it that way. He likened his in-match strategy to floating down a river, never knowing exactly where it’s going to go, and his lifestyle to “living on the edge of a lightning bolt.”
While he craves danger and enjoys unpredictability, Ambrose would not recommend his style to anyone else. Warning: Language is slightly NSFW.
