What’s a guy gotta do to get through a talk show around here? Chris Jericho’s planned “Highlight Reel” discussion of his United States Title rematch with Kevin Owens — a match that will send him to SmackDown LIVE if he wins, for what it’s worth — was interrupted not once, but twice, by Superstars looking to take over the proceedings.
First, The Miz swooped in and immediately transformed “The Highlight Reel” into “Miz TV” so he could interview Jericho, but Dean Ambrose was hot on his heels to flip “Miz TV” into “The Ambrose Asylum.” And, to his credit, Ambrose remembered he owed Jericho a jacket, so he brought the G.O.A.T. a peace offering of a homemade, Christmas light-spangled replacement. (The destruction of Mitch the Plant and Ambrose’s lingering $15,000 debt to Jericho apparently cancelled each other out.)
When Miz tried (unsuccessfully) to stop Jericho from trying it on, maaaannnnnn, and started bemoaning Dean’s supposed sullying of the Intercontinental Title and complaining that he didn’t get a gift, Ambrose hit him with Dirty Deeds and Jericho put Maryse on The List for being married to The Miz. Harsh.
The bad news for The Miz is that he’s already alienated everyone on Raw to such a degree that only one person wanted to be his tag team partner against talk-show foes Dean Ambrose & Chris Jericho in a Kurt Angle-organized main event. The good news is that that one man was … Elias Samson? Nah, Miz doesn’t even know him, despite a brief backstage interaction. It was, apparently, Bray Wyatt.
Granted, The Reaper of Souls waited until about halfway into the match to actually show up, leaving Miz to suffer a 2-on-1 mugging for more time than he probably would have preferred. But the former WWE Champion more than made up for the delay, saving Miz from a trip through the commentary table, Sister Abigail’ing Ambrose into the LED board and leading a 2-on-1 beatdown of Chris Jericho that ended the match without an official announcement.
Once Jericho had been hauled into the ring, Wyatt feasted upon his foe with Sister Abigail, but he wasn’t interested in sharing the glory: When Miz tried to mug with The Eater of Worlds after the match, Wyatt turned on The A-Lister and subjected him to a Sister Abigail of his own. Miz did say his partner had a flair for the dramatic. Maybe it was Wyatt after all.
So it’s back to the Monday Night RAW grind for Dean, and back into a battle of words with an old antagonist, the Miz. It seems as though the Miz is still a little salty about Dean taking the Intercontinental Championship from him over 100 days ago, and would like another shot at getting it back. So Miz does what he does best and rambles until Dean interrupts to bring the fight to him – but first he takes a moment to play to his home state crowd of Ohio. Once that’s done, Dean answers Miz’s accusations with a declaration that he doesn’t care about what people say or what they think of him, he doesn’t care for fancy suits and being a ‘brand’.. he just loves to do what he does. The blood sweat and tears, the miles on the road and the hours on the clock. Unlike The Miz, he isn’t trying to be ‘hollywood’, he’s just Dean Ambrose. At this point Maryse steps in to protect her husband from the scourge of Dean’s words and he puts her in her place too. eventually shedding his jacket, Dean takes down The Miz and only with distraction from Maryse, does Miz escape with all of his teeth still in his head.
This is one feud that didn’t end on the blue brand. Here’s what WWE.com had to say!
The Miz is back on Raw, which means “Miz TV” has come with him. And for his first guest, The A-Lister hosted fellow Superstar Shake-up ship-jumper Dean Ambrose, who welcomed Miz to Raw last week by planting him with Dirty Deeds.
The Lunatic Fringe wasn’t flustered by Miz’s various insults, including but not limited to The Awesome One’s claim that Ambrose was too lazy to shatter the glass ceiling, retorting simply that his record and reputation speak for themselves.
But then, Maryse made the mistake of insinuating that Ambrose was too much of a “boy” to take the Intercontinental Championship to the same heights Miz himself had before The Lunatic Fringe defeated him for it. So, Ambrose tackled Miz to the ground and mauled him relentlessly; The A-Lister only got away when Maryse whacked Ambrose on the back with a microphone and gave Miz a moment to escape.
The very first of the Superstar Shakeup Shockers involved our own Dean Ambrose, as he was traded to RAW alongside The Miz and Maryse to open the show. Despite Dean mistaking them for John Cena and Nikki Bella, he soon found out who he was really talking to and once he knew it was The Miz, he nailed him with a Dirty Deeds. Ooops. Later on in the night, Dean faced old enemy Kevin Owens and defeated him to make his comeback to the red brand a success. More trades tomorrow, who will Dean be mingling with on Team RAW? Here’s what WWE.com had to say.
On day one, minute one of the much-ballyhooed Superstar Shake-up, Monday Night Raw kicked things off by debuting a major acquisition from SmackDown LIVE… AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CE — oh, wait, it’s The Miz.
Reprising his Cena impression from the last few weeks of SmackDown LIVE, The Awesome One came to Raw with Maryse-as-Nikki Bella in tow and delivered some A-list roasting of The Cenation Leader until another Raw signee, Dean Ambrose, came down to talk some trash of his own.
The reigning Intercontinental Champion seemed fooled by Miz’s impression at first, talking to The A-Lister as if he actually was Cena and even offering his congratulations for defeating Miz & Maryse (“Those two are the worst”) at WrestleMania. But once Miz removed all his Cena garb and screamed that he was, in fact, The Miz, Ambrose hit him with Dirty Deeds. Like you thought that would end any other way.
Superstar Shake-up or not, Monday Night Raw is still The Kevin Owens Show, and the U.S. Champion will not take a backseat to the arrival of a new star like Dean Ambrose. Unfortunately, however, he might end up having to make do. The non-title Champion vs. Champion bout pitting “The Face of America” against The Lunatic Fringe ended with the curtain falling on KO’s head.
All of this was fairly unexpected because Owens was having his way with the Intercontinental Champion and showed no signs of stopping early in the bout. A trip to Chinlock City and a straight-up heave-ho, ribs-first into the turnbuckle left Ambrose gasping for air and Owens with a perfect target that he did not skimp on punishing.
Ambrose managed to maneuver his way into planting Owens with Dirty Deeds to seal the match, but The Prizefighter’s night was far from over.
Chris Jericho made his presence known, blasting Owens with a Codebreaker as some retribution for getting put through a table last week. It wasn’t capital-P Payback just yet (that’s in a few weeks), but it was definitely a start. Shane, Daniel? You’re up.
Yes, you read that right. Dean’s back on RAW for one night only as Team Blue arrive to defend their GM’s on RAW’s turf. Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, AJ Styles and Randy Orton (along with James Ellsworth) arriving by surprise after Stephanie McMahon sets Team RAW on Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan. It led to a verbal showdown between the two brands teams, that ended when Dean decided less talk and more action was the way to go – attacking Chris Jericho. The two sides brawled until eventually team Smackdown had to retreat, but they got their message across and rescued their bosses from a beatdown, so I’d call it a successful night.
Last week Dean threw down the gauntlet to the ever mouthy Seth Rollins and this week he heads in to battle with his arch nemesis for the WWE Championship. The whole landscape of the WWE is due to change with the upcoming draft, and Dean’s hell bent on being Champion heading in to it. While Rollins cuts a lengthy promo roaming around an empty arena and asserting once again his ‘right’ to the WWE Championship (psh, wrestling owes you nothing, Seth) .. Dean takes it back to the beginning. Addressing the WWE Universe from a dingy basement via handheld camera in a throwback to the Shield. He said then that they’d arrived to take over the business, and here they are, fighting over the WWE Championship years later. No matter the outcome, they’ve lived up to their promises.
The main event rolls around and it’s everything we’ve come to expect from an Ambrose Vs Rollins matchup. The boiling tension between the two as always spilling over and knowing one anothers playbooks inside out leading to some intense back and forth. So much so, that an eventual suplex off of the top turnbuckles leads to both men with their shoulders down and a three count with no clear winner. That being the case, the match is declared a draw. Dean retains the Championship as we head in to the draft. But we know he’d rather have had the decisive victory. Either way, the gold stays his.
The good news first, if you’re a Dean Ambrose fan: The Lunatic Fringe is still WWE Champion. The good news second, if you’re a Seth Rollins fan: The Architect fought like hell to wrest the supreme championship from his former Shield ally. Rollins took Ambrose to both the physical limit and the time limit in a match that spilled into a WWE Network overrun after a disputed pinfall left the match with an unclear victor.
Things ended far more decisively in the extra innings, so to speak, when the referee went to the tape and ruled the match a double-pin draw. Ambrose ultimately got the better of Rollins when The Architect attempted to ambush him with the title, meaning he’ll walk into WWE Battleground as champion. And lastly, the good news if you’re a Roman Reigns fan: He’s back Sunday. And that could be very, very bad news for the other two.
Another week another dastardly scheme from Seth Rollins. But this week Dean ain’t playing anymore. Fun and games time is over and he’s done enjoying his victory, it’s time to get serious and if Seth Rollins thinks he’s only got to worry about Roman at Battleground he’s got another thing coming. The switch is flipped and it’s time for Rollins to remember just who he is dealing with. Seth knows what Dean’s capable of, the depths he’ll go to, the muck he’ll crawl through, the blood he’ll spill just to get his hands on the WWE Championship and be ‘the man’.. what exactly does he think is going to happen now Dean actually has the title in his grasp? He’s not going to let it out of his grasp, in fact he tells Rollins he’ll have to pry it from his cold dead fingers first. He means business, and he tells Seth exactly what he thinks of him and his cheating, weasly tactics. Rollins makes a hasty retreat, but takes Dean’s offer of a one on one Championship match on next weeks RAW. Ambrose has something to prove, and he’s got Rollins shaken. Here’s WWE.coms review.
Looks like one of the unspoken side goals of Seth Rollins’ “Redesign, Rebuild, Reclaim” mantra was “Get Your Own Talk Show,” because after some political maneuvering among the McMahons, The Architect debuted his very own variety program, “The Rollins Report,” on Raw. Seth’s selling point to Shane and Stephanie McMahon was an earthshaking exclusive from Roman Reigns, but “The Man’s” scoop turned out to be a bunch of doctored footage assembled to further tarnish the suspended Reigns.
Enter Dean Ambrose, who did what he does best and riled Rollins into a frenzy, only this time Seth turned it around, hurling insults that lathered The Lunatic Fringe into a frothing rage. Not only that, but Rollins got something even sweeter out of the exchange: When Ambrose snarled that he’d accept a one-on-one challenge at any point for his WWE Championship, Rollins laid one down for next week’s Raw.
Hot off the tail of the Japan tour, Dean graces the 4th of July RAW with his presence in a rematch against Intercontinental Champion Miz, who he bested already on Smackdown. As if The Miz thought anything might go any differently on RAW, he once again eats defeat at the hands of Dean and his Dirty Deeds, giving him a little more momentum heading in to Battleground. However as Dean goes to leave the ring, he’s interrupted by nemesis Seth Rollins. Dean passes him without incident, even giving him an unexpected pat on the back. But he can’t leave it at that. Running back to the ring, Dean swerves Seth and heads for the announce desk! Briefly showing off his Spanish skills with the Spanish announce team, before joining JBL and Cole to offer his insight on Seths match against Ziggler. He notes that Seths a very angry, tense person. He could use a better attitude.
Seth is victorious, and immediately takes to the announce tables to shout about it. Launching in to a tirade about Roman Reigns, Dean doesn’t listen for long. Getting up and stopping Seth in his tracks, with a beat down he wont forget for a while! All in all, a successful round of July 4th fireworks. Here’s what WWE.com had to say!
Dean Ambrose def. The Miz
You can now count egg among the many types of food on The Miz’s face this Fourth of July: Not only did the Intercontinental Champion get owned in the world’s largest food fight, but he was feasted upon by Dean Ambrose in a Champion vs. Champion Match that featured no shortage of July 4 fireworks. Riding a wave of hometown support, Ambrose started strong and finished even stronger, rallying from a banged-up knee and a late-game surge from The A-Lister to escape the Figure-Four Leglock and hit Dirty Deeds for the win.
Ambrose wasn’t out of the woods, however, as Seth Rollins arrived for his match while The Lunatic Fringe was celebrating. The Architect’s presence looked, at first, like it was going to incite Ambrose into a rage, but it turns out all The Lunatic Fringe wanted to do was stick around on commentary. The Spanish commentary, no less. Now that’s a swerve.
Seth Rollins Vs Dolph Ziggler – Dean Ambrose on Commentary
So Seth Rollins is not letting this whole Roman Reigns controversy go quietly. Nor, for that matter, is he about to let Dean Ambrose overshadow him in the lead-up to the winner-take-all Triple Threat Match at WWE Battleground: Moments after Ambrose dispatched The Miz in a Champion vs. Champion Match, Rollins scored a victory of his own over Dolph Ziggler with The Lunatic Fringe on commentary. He had to shake off a mighty impressive performance by The Showoff to do it, but do it he did, kicking out of a superkick and shaking off a Zig Zag to land the Pedigree.
Rollins saved his most savage attack, however, for the still-absent Reigns, demanding that the WWE Universe boo The Big Dog as payback for his recent suspension. His insults toward Ambrose were met with a little more resistance from their target, however; The Lunatic Fringe tossed his title in Rollins’ face and delivered Dirty Deeds atop the Spanish commentary table. Qué pena.
You know what they say: When the sports-entertainment gods close a door (or cash in a contract), they open a window. In this case, they handed a 30-day suspension to Roman Reigns, giving Seth Rollins the opportunity to capitalize on the controversy and try to get The Big Dog booted from the long-brewing Shield Triple Threat at WWE Battleground, thereby giving him a cleaner shot at Dean Ambrose’s WWE Championship.
Ambrose, of course, wasn’t about to let Rollins get his way, and things quickly got even more complicated when AJ Styles and John Cena threw their names in the proverbial hunt for the title. It fell to Stephanie McMahon to make the executive decision (and point out that Shane was again absent this week), and not only did she preserve Reigns’ spot in the match, she handed Cena and Styles “win-and-you’re-in” matches against Rollins and Ambrose, respectively, for later in the night. So much for an open window.
Dean Ambrose def. AJ Styles
Sure, the sports-entertainment gods may have closed that door and opened a window, but seems like Seth Rollins has decided he’ll take the door after all. With John Cena barred of the WWE Battleground main event, Rollins had no force but to throw his support behind Dean Ambrose’s efforts to keep AJ Styles from joining the marquee match himself.
Luckily, Rollins got his wish, and he ironically has John Cena to thank: When the rest of The Club showed up to thwart a surging Ambrose, Cena sprinted down the ramp to fight them off, allowing Ambrose to plant The Phenomenal One with Dirty Deeds. While The Club swarmed Cena and dropped him with a Magic Killer on the entrance ramp in retaliation, Rollins jumped Ambrose from behind with a pair of Pedigrees. Battleground is set. Consider the opening salvo fired.
What a difference a week makes. Last Monday, all three former members of The Shield shared the ring on “The Ambrose Asylum.” And Dean Ambrose suggested that he might, just might, win Money in the Bank and cash it in on whomever was left standing in Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins’ WWE World Heavyweight Title Match. Lo and behold, that’s exactly what happened, and Raw opened this week with Reigns and Rollins each approaching The Lunatic Fringe for first crack at his prize.
Reigns opted to lay down what amounted to a gentleman’s challenge to his brother from another mother, but a twitching-mad Rollins chose instead to demand that The Lunatic Fringe award him the first rematch. Reigns offered to fight for it. Rollins said no way (Jose). With Stephanie McMahon absent, Shane McMahon provided the solution, scheduling Rollins and Reigns in a No. 1 Contender’s Match for later in the night. And so begins the reign of WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose. Drink it in, man.
As any lunatic worth his salt is wont to do, Dean Ambrose kind of screwed everything up for Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins at Money in the Bank. So “The Man” and “The Guy” met again on Raw in a rematch, with the winner set to challenge The Lunatic Fringe for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Battleground.
The two picked up right where they left off, though Reigns secured an early advantage by virtue of a tremendous boot to the face and some earth-shaking rights to the face. Rollins found his own groove by going to the air, but Reigns hung tough until the battle spilled to the outside and a Spear to Rollins over the Spanish commentary table left them both unable to answer the referee’s 10-count. So Roman Reigns didn’t beat Seth Rollins. Seth Rollins didn’t beat Roman Reigns. What does that mean for WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose? Hell, he’s hardcore: He’ll take ’em both.
A busy night for Dean Ambrose as his show ‘Ambrose Asylum’ is re-instated by Shane McMahon and his first guests? His former brothers in arms, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. With Money in the Bank on the horizon, Rollins and Reigns are headed in to a big showdown and Dean has the burning questions everybody wants to know. Which man thinks he’s taking home the World Heavyweight Championship. Rollins who never lost it, Reigns who rightfully has it.. or Dean. Who could win the Money in the Bank briefcase and cash it in on the same night! Of course, all of this happens after a little reminiscing, the three of them recounting stories of better times before The Shield turned sour. It doesn’t last long though, as Rollins declares his favorite moment was when he smashed them both in the back and left them in the dust. Ouch. At the end of this segment, it’s Dean left standing tall after Roman takes Seth out with a superman punch, and Dean takes out Roman with Dirty Deeds. He’s going to get his hands on that briefcase or die trying.
Later on, Stephanie McMahon is less than pleased Dean had his show reinstated by Shane, and puts him in to the main event match against Jericho. With all the other MITB players at ringside on commentary, timekeeping and ring announcing. That just seems like a recipe for disaster, and it is. As soon as Dean wins the match, a brawl breaks out that ends with Jericho holding the briefcase. Will that happen on Sunday? Not if Dean has anything to do with it!
All the talk has been, understandably, about Roman Reigns’ long-brewing battle with Seth Rollins over the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Money in the Bank. But perhaps the real X-factor of the match is … Dean Ambrose? Yep, Dean Ambrose. In one “Ambrose Asylum,” The Lunatic Fringe went from genial middleman among the reunited Shield members to a potential dark horse in Reigns and Rollins’ title match.
He did so in the most Ambrose way possible, casually interrupting the champion and challenger’s talking points. Per Reigns, Rollins is a pretender to the throne and a sell-out; per Rollins, he never lost the title and Reigns is a paper champion. But Ambrose added the observation that he could win Money in the Bank and snatch the title from under both their noses. As if to punctuate his point, the ensuing brawl between the estranged Hounds of Justice ended with Ambrose standing tall after a Dirty Deeds to Reigns, signifying that the inmate may well run the asylum very, very soon.
Last Thursday on SmackDown, Chris Jericho finally got his win against Dean Ambrose … and, just like that, the honeymoon is over for “The Best in the World At What He Does.” The Lunatic Fringe knocked Jericho off in their rematch on Raw, but the presence of Cesaro as the ring announcer, Alberto Del Rio as the timekeeper and Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens on commentary made the bout a veritable pressure-cooker for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match participants.
Well whadaya know, that pressure did, in fact, boil over. Everyone was civil enough to wait until after Ambrose reversed the Codebreaker into Dirty Deeds, but then it was “go time” as soon as Owens rushed Ambrose and the rest followed, instigating a Pier Six brawl that ended with Jericho making the symbolic grab of the contract.
As you may have heard, a New Era is dawning, for Raw and especially SmackDown. And who better to usher in the latest chapter of the blue brand than … Teddy Long?
Teddy Long. The Mac Militant Playa, former SmackDown General Manager and eternal tag team match enthusiast interrupted a ladder-top showdown between the Money in the Bank Ladder Match contestants — Dean Ambrose, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Cesaro, Alberto Del Rio and Chris Jericho — to throw his name in the running for SmackDown’s new head honcho position. Although Stephanie McMahon (running the show solo with Shane on vacation) wasn’t about to hand him SmackDown on a big blue platter, she took a cue from his matchmaking days and sanction three singles matches between the Money in the Bank men: Zayn vs. Del Rio, Ambrose vs. Owens, and Cesaro vs. Jericho. The latter of which started immediately. Holla!
For a guy who’s declared himself the pre-emptive winner of the Money in the Bank contract, Kevin Owens sure is having a rough road to the make-or-break event. Following a pair of tag team losses this week — and swearing off partners as a result — Owens took another “L” on his own against Dean Ambrose on Raw.
It was an especially heartbreaking one, too, since Owens talked some serious trash before the bell and seemed to take the momentum with his sternum-smashing “Bullfrog Splash” off the apron. The Lunatic Fringe somehow fought through the effects to hit Dirty Deeds moments later and win, though Owens did get a silver lining — and the last word — by toppling Ambrose off the ladder he scaled in an attempt to mug with the briefcase.
Money in the Bank is a handful of weeks away and Dean’s secured his spot in the ladder match for the Championship shot. But this week, he has to team with men he’ll be fighting that night, to take on 3 other men he’ll be fighting that night. The potential for things to go wrong is sky high. But Dean’s got his eyes firmly set on that briefcase and RAW works like clockwork, taking out the team of Jericho, Owens and Del Rio with relative ease. Dean picks up the win with Dirty Deeds to Kevin Owens. Heres what WWE.com had to say!
So Dean Ambrose doesn’t trust Canadians. Who knew? That being said, he should be thankful that Sami Zayn was on his team in Raw’s main event, otherwise The Lunatic Fringe might have another loss to his name. In a match that pitted the six Money in the Bank competitors against each other, Ambrose, Zayn & Cesaro united against Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens & Alberto Del Rio, none of whom could get along to save their lives.
Or the match, as it turns out. After a long battle, Jericho finally had Ambrose where he wanted him when Owens stole a tag and stalled his trio in its tracks — thanks, Canada — instigating a Pier-Six brawl where Cesaro unleashed the Cesaro Swing on Jericho. That is, until Del Rio Backstabber’d him. At which point, Zayn hit him with the Helluva Kick, leading to a superkick from Owens and a Pop-up Powerbomb attempt that went awry. And that allowed Dean-O to pounce with Dirty Deeds for the win. Poutine for everybody!
