Seems like Dean’s reached the end of his rope with The Miz, as Miz continues to press buttons by hosting a ‘Mizzies’ awards in which he presents awards to himself and his ‘Miztourage’, Dean crashes the party unafraid of the 4 on 1 advantage and gets himself into a spot of bother. Help comes from an unexpected place, in the form of Seth Rollins who Miz had also insulted during his acceptance speech. Miz and his Miztourage are chased away with the combined efforts of Ambrose and Rollins, but Dean seems less than happy to have the help.

Backstage Dean confronts Seth, demanding to know why he came out to help him. Seth says he wont listen to anybody trash talk him, to which Dean laughs. Yeah, cause Seth is such an upstanding citizen, right? Dean tells Seth to fight his own battles and stay out of his, he doesn’t trust him because he knows him. Looks like Seth is not yet forgiven.

Later on in the night the Miztourage attack Seth after his Main Event match, and this time Dean comes to his rescue. But after he brutally attacks Miz with a chair and pays no attention to Seth, you have to wonder if the virtue of rescue was really what Dean had in mind. Heres what had to say.

The Miz managed to hold off Dean Ambrose and retain his Intercontinental Title at WWE Great Balls of Fire (with assists from Maryse and The Miztourage, of course), so he came to Raw with one thing in mind: to give himself and his people some awards. In fact, The first-ever “Mizzies” were little more than an excuse for Miz to present trophies to his team: Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel co-won Best Supporting Actor, Maryse won Most Beautiful, Gorgeous, Sexy Leading Lady and Miz himself won Greatest Man in WWE. And during his “acceptance speech,” The A-Lister came out of left field to label The Hardys, Akira Tozawa and Seth Rollins as “frauds.”

But The Lunatic Fringe was ready to play spoiler, crashing The Mizzies and taking the fight back to the Intercontinental Champion. Much like WWE Great Balls of Fire, Ambrose found himself outnumbered, at least until he cleared the ring with a clutch assist from one of the very same men Miz called a fraud: Seth Freakin’ Rollins. Despite the brief reunion, however, Ambrose wasn’t exactly raring to re-team with his old running mate in a pointed backstage confrontation.

When Wyatt vanished after claiming the victory, The Miz and The Miztourage reappeared to pick the bones, and Dean Ambrose came to his former brother’s rescue with a chair, an eye-opening change of tune given his fight-our-own-battles speech to Rollins earlier in the night.

If The Miz wanted to prove he can’t do anything without help then Great Balls of Fire was his night. Dean came down to the ring alone, in the face of Miz and his ‘entourage’ of three other people. The numbers game was against Dean from the get go and even though he got the jump on Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, he just couldn’t stay ahead of the 4 on 1 advantage and with people coming at him from all angles, he was eventually defeated, the Intercontinental Championship slipping from his fingers. But his pride completely in tact.

It’s good to be The Miz: A beautiful wife, a devoted Miztourage, and, still, the Intercontinental Championship following a successful title defense against Dean Ambrose at WWE Great Balls of Fire.

Granted, Miz owes a great deal of debt to that same Miztourage, who commanded Ambrose’s attention from the jump. The Lunatic Fringe faced, essentially, a 3-on-1 disadvantage and seemed to be handling it well at first, taking out Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas after putting Miz in an early hole. But The Axe Man’s presence distracted Ambrose enough for Miz to reclaim the advantage, and The A-Lister held that lead for minutes on end before The Lunatic Fringe mustered up the energy to respond.

The Awesome One quickly answered back, busting Ambrose’s mouth open before battering his knee in the Tree of Woe in order to soften up the No. 1 contender for the Figure-Four Leglock. The Lunatic Fringe not only broke the hold but quickly willed himself into a second wind, goading The Miz into an uncharacteristically aggressive charge that landed the champion square in the path of an elbow drop.

Maryse and The Miztourage immediately entered the fray, with the former distracting the ref while the latter pulled The Lunatic Fringe out of the ring. Ambrose rallied to take out Miz and Miztourage with an elbow drop and land Dirty Deeds, but Maryse placed her husband’s foot on the ropes to break up the pinfall. Ambrose instantly followed up with a suicide dive, and The Miztourage again interjected when Axel climbed onto the apron and was instantly tossed aside by Ambrose. This distracted the ref, however, which allowed Dallas to hammer Dean in the back of the head, staggering The Lunatic Fringe into a match-ending Skull-Crushing Finale.

So, The Miz remains champion, but like any star worth his salt, it’s fair to say he’s only as good as his team. And if this match is that indication, that makes him very, very good.

With one week to go before Great Balls of Fire, Dean’s pretty tired of waiting around for the Miz to finish talking and heads out to once again interrupt Miz TV and demand his rematch for the Intercontinental Championship. But before Dean can finish his challenge and get to the ring he’s interrupted by – of all people – Heath Slater. Heath has kids so he thinks he deserves a shot at the title. Well Dean’s got a dog so whats your point Heath? At any rate, Dean’s a sporting man and while he agrees Heath should get a shot, he insists he’s at the front of the line. Miz says Dean’ll get his rematch when HE says so.. which General Manager Kurt Angle takes exception to, coming out to tell Miz that Dean will get his rematch at Great balls of Fire and not only that, Heath Slater will get a shot tonight!

With that in mind, Dean heads up to join the commentary team while Heath takes on Miz for the Intercontinental Championship. Eager to find out who his opponent might end up being at Great balls of Fire. He also takes the opportunity to address a few of the things The Miz said about him and his career. Stating that he’s pretty proud of his accomplishments in WWE, he’s held the most prestigious titles, racked up some great accolades.. but even so he doesn’t even view success in terms of material things. He’s just happy to be doing what he’s doing. That said, The Miz wins his match thanks to interference from his entourage of Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, who go on to attack Rhyno and Slater. Dean intervenes but ends up with the numbers working against him once again. Miz has the last laugh tonight, but he wont on Sunday. Here’s what had to say.

Remember a couple weeks ago when Heath Slater dangled the idea of challenging The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship and then pinned him in a tag team match? Well, Heath Slater remembers. And while Raw General Manager Kurt Angle was happy to grant Dean Ambrose a title rematch at the first-ever WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view following a confrontation between Miz, Ambrose and Slater on “Miz TV,” he also ruled that The A-Lister would first defend his title against The One-Man Band to determine who, exactly, The Lunatic Fringe would face.

A thoroughly unprepared Miz had to compete in his suit pants and shirt, and Slater was a house on fire for the entire bout, but The A-Lister made it out with his title intact. It took a distraction from The Miztourage to divert the ref’s attention and a battle with Rhyno at ringside to divert Heath’s, but the result of those two interferences was Miz planting his opponent with a devastating Skull-Crushing Finale for the win.

Ambrose, who spent the match on commentary, attempted to save Slater from further punishment, but The Lunatic Fringe succumbed to the numbers game and found himself on the receiving end of another Skull-Crushing Finale. The worst part for Ambrose isn’t he beating, necessarily: It’s that he now facees the daunting challenge of outwitting The A-Lister and his cohorts if he hopes to leave Sunday with the Intercontinental Title back in his possession.

The Ambrose Asylum may yet get its crown jewel back, as Dean Ambrose prepares to once again battle The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship this Sunday at the first-ever WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view.

When Raw General Manager Kurt Angle made the match official, he put The Lunatic Fringe back in the running to relieve Miz of the title that The Awesome One captured in controversial fashion at WWE Extreme Rules. However, it remains to be seen whether Ambrose’s unpredictable nature will be enough to regain the coveted prize now that the odds have been stacked against him.

Though Ambrose has been able to get inside The A-Lister’s head in recent weeks and has even driven a wedge into the Intercontinental Champion’s marriage, the titleholder has struck back by acquiring Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel as members of his Miztourage. Together, the devious pair has helped increase Miz’s good fortune – both with a giant teddy bear sneak attack and then in Six-Man Tag Team action. After Miz defeated Heath Slater to retain his title, he orchestrated a 3-on-1 beatdown on The Lunatic Fringe, culminating in a Skull-Crushing Finale. Will this be Ambrose’s fate this Sunday?

Find out when the inaugural WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view streams live this Sunday, at 8 ET/5 PT, on the award-winning WWE Network.

As we head into Great Balls of Fire and Dean’s rematch for the Intercontinental Championship, it seems like it’s all about balls on RAW! Yes, I really just said that. Tonights guests on Miz TV are the Ball family, Los Angeles Lakers draft pick Lonzo Ball, his brother LaMelo and his father LaVar. Miz wants to become a business partner but they laugh him off, only for Dean to arrive wearing one of their Baller Brand T Shirts and announcing nobody has bigger balls than Dean Ambrose. Well then. On that thought, Dean takes the fight to Miz in a six man tag. Teaming up with Rhyno and Slater to take on Miz and his ‘entourage’ of Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel. Miz spends the match actively avoiding Dean and then taunting him when he gets the chance. Not the smartest move. Dean sticks within the rules and unfortunately his opponents do not. With the usual Miz shenanigans, he and his entourage secure the win with Dean just seconds away from breaking up the pin. A frustrating loss for him. Here’s what had to say.

Intercontinental Champion The Miz & The Miztourage def. Dean Ambrose, Heath Slater & Rhyno
First, the bad news for The Miz: Despite landing one of the bigger coups in “Miz TV” history when he had Los Angeles Lakers draft pick Lonzo Ball, his brother LaMelo and his father LaVar as guests, LaVar passed up an opportunity to merge The Miz with Big Baller Brand in favor of Dean Ambrose, who wore a Big Baller Brand shirt to the ring as proof of the collaboration.

The good news, at least, is that the Intercontinental Champion and his Miztourage won the day nevertheless: Heath Slater & Rhyno joined Ambrose in a Six-Man Tag against the entire Miztourage, and despite a formidable effort by Slater & Rhyno, Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas came through for their new benefactor.

While Ambrose chased Miz around the ring and commanded the ref’s attention, Axel hit Rhyno with a cheap shot, and Bo rolled up The Man Beast for three.

Last week Dean burrowed his way further under The Miz’s skin, causing even more of a rift between he and his wife Maryse using nothing but a bear suit and good timing. This week, Miz invites Maryse to Miz TV to get on his knees and grovel.. well, buy her expensive champagne and gifts anyway. Mid apology, Dean crashes the party and his mere presence sends Miz spiralling into a panic, pulling Maryse in front of him as Dean enters the ring and causing Maryse to splash her champagne all over her face. Miz charges Dean and Dean ducks, sending Miz crashing into the Grandfather Clock he’d gotten repaired for Maryse. She’s had it, and shoves Miz away as she once again storms off. Dean attempts to strike Miz with Dirty Deeds, but settles for clotheslining him out of the ring instead.

Only this time Miz had backup, in the form of the apology bears in the ring. Apology bears that turn out to be Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas, newly recruited as Miz’s sidekicks. They assault Dean viciously, and Miz joins in to deliver a skull crushing finale, leaving Dean writhing in pain in the ring. Ouch.. here’s what had to say!

Dean Ambrose hasn’t just gotten inside The Miz’s head over the last couple of weeks, he’s managed to drive a wedge in the Intercontinental Champion’s marriage.

The Lunatic Fringe’s schemes have landed Miz so deep in the doghouse with Maryse that he had to stage a special apology edition of “Miz TV,” complete with a pair of giant apology bears, who were confirmed not to be Ambrose in disguise, and the inadvertently-destroyed grandfather clock The A-Lister repaired with his own two hands.

It all seemed to be going swimmingly until Ambrose’s music hit, at which point a panicked Miz spilled champagne on Maryse and accidentally demolished the clock again while attempting to bum-rush The Lunatic Fringe.

That fiasco led to Maryse storming off and Ambrose knocking Miz over the ropes, but staying in the ring with the bears proved to be Ambrose’s undoing. The bears attacked The Lunatic Fringe from behind while he was staring down Miz and unmasked themselves to reveal Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, whom The A-Lister had offered spots in his “entourage” earlier in the evening. Miz provided the exclamation point, booting Ambrose in the face while Dallas and Axel held him down and administering the Skull-Crushing Finale moments later.

So many puns, so little time. More shenanigans this week as the battle for the Intercontinental Championship and general bragging rights continues between Dean Ambrose and The Miz. Dean starts out his night facing Elias Samson again, looking to get a little payback for the past week. Dean has the match in hand and his opponent down, when the Miz interferes, distracting him and leading Dean on a wild chase around the outside of the ring. He narrowly misses being counted out, but when he gets back in the rin he’s instantly stomped on by Samson and dragged into his finisher. Another annoying loss for Dean.

Later on in the night The Miz demands from Kurt Angle that something be done about Dean, asking for him to be suspended. Angle refuses to do any such thing and tells Miz to handle it himself. Miz attempts to put together an ‘entourage’ but only ends up landing himself in a match against Heath Slater and Rhyno.. with a mystery partner. The mystery partner? The fuzzy bear from last weeks ill fated celebration! Of course.. Miz assumes the bear is Ambrose and is once again wrong as he attacks the hapless guy and finds ‘not Dean Ambrose’ underneath.

Miz returns to the match, momentarily conversing with his wife. While he does so, another bear gets into the ring. Heath Slater aids the bear back to his feet, but suddenly, the bear hits Slater with Dirty Deeds. Maryse tries to warn her husband but he doesn’t listen and ends up knocking her onto her butt! She storms off angry, while Miz turns to meet his fate: Dean Ambrose in a bear costume. There’s so many one liners I can’t even begin. Dean nails Miz with Dirty Deeds, and puts the bear head over his face. Vast improvement if you ask us. Here’s what had to say!

Dean Ambrose is still willing to walk with Elias Samson — but thanks to The Miz, the former Intercontinental Champion can’t quite seem to beat him.

Despite suffering a clothesline that nearly knocked him out of his boots, The Lunatic Fringe fought back from the brink to put the burly balladeer on his heels during the latest installment of their rivalry.

The A-Lister made his presence known at the moment of truth, and while the Intercontinental Champion crucially refrained from laying hands on Ambrose, his presence was enough to seal The Lunatic Fringe’s fate. Ambrose chased Miz around the ring, dove back into the squared circle when he realized he was about to be counted out and immediately ate a knee to the back from Samson. The sinister serenader followed up with the rolling neckbreaker for the win.

Bear with us here, because this gets a little complicated.

First, after Raw General Manager Kurt Angle told Miz he was on his own against Dean Ambrose, The Awesome One attempted to poach Heath Slater to his side as an ally, which led The One-Man Band’s tag partner, Rhyno, to challenge The A-Lister to a tag match — provided, of course, he could find a partner of his own. That turned out to be a giant bear, much like the one Miz suspected was Ambrose in disguise during last week’s catastrophic Intercontinental Championship coronation.

Suspicious of his ursine ally from the get-go, Miz attacked the bear and removed its giant head, only to reveal, once again, that it wasn’t Ambrose, at which point he threw the bear out of the ring in frustration.

The bear seemingly recovered in time to re-enter the fray, but when he hit Dirty Deeds on Slater, the WWE Universe realized a switcheroo had been pulled and Ambrose had finagled his way into the match. Miz was too banged-up to notice, and a panicked Maryse couldn’t get her husband’s attention to warn him.

But when The Lunatic Fringe revealed himself, Miz freaked and accidentally bumped Maryse off the ring apron in his attempt to flee, leading to Ambrose planting his rival with a Dirty Deeds. Ambrose then placed The One-Man Band atop Miz for the win and covered Miz’s head with his mask, leaving WWE’s self-dubbed “It” couple to suffer more humiliation than anyone can possibly bear.

It’s not paranoia if Dean Ambrose is really out to get you. A lesson The Miz learned tonight on RAW in the aftermath of Extreme Rules. Early in the show Dean came to the ring and quickly dispatched Elias Samson, then called out The Miz demanding his rematch. Miz showed up, but only via video screen and told Dean he wasn’t getting his rematch tonight. While Dean’s attention was focused on the screen, Samson returned to the ring and attacked Dean from behind – well, he’s just racking up the bad book points.

Later on in the night Dean hunts down Kurt Angle and demands to know where Miz is, Angle instead deflects Dean’s demands and tells him to take the night off, his rematch isn’t happening tonight, but Miz’s celebration is. Reluctantly, Dean agrees to leave the building and take the night off.. only, not. He returns a while later, sneaking back in behind Kurt Angles back.

Forward to The Miz’s championship celebration and a mystery man in a bear costume confuses both Miz and his wife, neither of them having ordered ‘the bear’. Miz assumes its Dean and lays the bear out with the skull crushing finale, then tears the head off to reveal… NOT Dean Ambrose. Paranoia well and truly setting in, a gift brought down to ringside is immediately attacked by Miz with a chair, upsetting his wife! Once he’s beaten the gift to a pulp, it turns out it really was just a gift from Maryse. Miz is in for a long night, with his wife so mad at him she leaves! Miz gets back in the ring and demands to know where Dean is. Well, Miz, right behind you! He never suspected the camera man! Dean drops the camera equipment and nails Miz with Dirty Deeds, then steals his champagne to go celebrate revenge. Here’s what had to say!

You can’t really blame Dean Ambrose for being a little raw (so to speak) about what went down at WWE Extreme Rules. After Ambrose somehow managed to adhere to the stipulation that he could lose the Intercontinental Title to The Miz via disqualification at WWE Extreme Rules, a confrontation with the referee allowed The A-Lister to pin Dean the old-fashioned way, all of which is to say that The Lunatic Fringe wasn’t really in the mood for Elias Samson’s singing insults on Raw.

Ambrose ambushed Samson mid-ballad and threw him into the crowd, only stopping to demand his title rematch with The A-Lister. But Miz, having plenty of experience in avoiding people who want to beat him up, came prepared: The new Intercontinental Champion was ensconced in the safety of the backstage area, from which he revealed that Ambrose would not be getting a rematch, and Miz would instead kick off his “Intercontinental Championship Comeback Tour” with a celebration later in the evening.

And then, finally, Samson sprang back up and laid out Ambrose. Adding insult to injury (injuries?), Kurt Angle gave Ambrose the night off when the deposed former champion went hunting for The A-Lister backstage.

In an ideal world for The Miz, he would have begun his Intercontinental Championship “Comeback Tour” with champagne, gifts and absolutely no interference of any kind from Dean Ambrose. He’ll have to settle for two out of three.

The so-called kickoff ceremony did indeed have all the trappings Miz expected, but having seen Seth Rollins do this dance a few years back, the champion was understandably paranoid that Ambrose was lying in wait and thus, had his head on a swivel from the word jump, despite the fact The Lunatic Fringe had been ostensibly given the night off by Raw GM Kurt Angle.

Miz became steadily more unhinged as the ceremony progressed, beating up a dancing bear whom he thought was Ambrose in disguise and dropping two tremendous elbows on a giant gift box before Ambrose could, presumably, jump out and attack. That turned out to be a gift of a “timeless” grandfather clock from Maryse, and its destruction led to The Awesome One’s lady love storming off in disgust.

He needn’t have looked so hard to find The Lunatic Fringe, though: With Kurt Angle distracted thanks to his own ongoing drama surrounding potentially-incriminating texts, Ambrose had snuck back into the building and hid himself in plain sight, filming Miz in the guise of a cameraman and waiting for the opportune moment to strike with Dirty Deeds. The Lunatic Fringe then took Miz’s champagne for good measure.

The most Extreme night of the year, and the most Extreme Superstar on the roster figuratively had his hands tied. No, it makes no sense to us either! Dean kicked off Extreme Rules defending his Intercontinental Championship against The Miz, who managed to get a stipulation put in place where if Dean got disqualified, he also lost the Championship. Normally a DQ means a title doesn’t change hands, so this stripped Dean of his ‘Champions advantage’.. it also put the advantage squarely in Miz’s corner as he had the ever present X Factor of Maryse on his side. An X factor that would come in to play as the stakes rose and the match rolled on, the Miz told his wife to slap him in a deliberate attempt to get Dean Disqualified. The referee saw through the ruse and had Maryse thrown out, but as Maryse argued with the referee, Miz once again attempted to get Dean DQ’d by shoving him deliberately into the ref. It looked like this time the referee might indeed disqualify Dean, but as Dean pleaded with him not to do it, Miz snuck up behind him and hit the skull crushing finale, ending Deans Intercontinental Championship reign.. sometimes the odds just aren’t in your favor. Here’s what had to say!

At WWE Extreme Rules, The Miz’s controversial tactics, combined with an accidental collision with the referee and the general commotion of an intense showdown, allowed The A-Lister to steal his seventh Intercontinental Championship.

Even before both Superstars journeyed to Raw as part of the Superstar Shake-up, The Miz made his opinion clear that Dean Ambrose is an unworthy Intercontinental Champion. And after their title match on Raw ended in a disqualification, The A-Lister convinced Raw General Manager Kurt Angle to take the championship advantage out of the equation for the rematch. At WWE Extreme Rules, if Ambrose were to get himself disqualified, he would lose his coveted title. From the beginning of his 92nd pay-per-view match, The Miz tried every trick in the book to get The Lunatic Fringe to snap or to make the referee believe that the titleholder had broken the rules. Though Miz was unsuccessful in causing Ambrose to get disqualified, the stipulation clearly took something out of his opponent’s game plan from start to finish, as The Awesome One maintained a decisive advantage throughout much of the contest.

With every minute, the battle grew more and more fierce, resulting in an injury to Ambrose’s knee and the exchange of Figure-Four Leglocks. During the height of the action, Miz once again tried to bring an end to the contest by having Maryse slap him. Rather than call for the bell, the referee kicked The Awesome One’s cunning wife out of the bout. As the official worked to get her away from ringside, the turmoil continued in the ring, and Ambrose was thrown into the referee when his back was turned. Thinking Ambrose smashed into him on purpose, the referee looked as if he was going to disqualify the titleholder. However, before he could, Miz engaged his opponent from behind and hit him with a Skull-Crushing Finale for the huge victory.
