The STAPLES Center will have a hard time containing the action when WWE’s most furious rivalry rages on at SummerSlam, where Dean Ambrose will finally lock up with Seth Rollins in singles competition.
The two bitter enemies have been at each other’s throats since Rollins betrayed Ambrose and dismantled The Shield. Rollins and Ambrose were originally scheduled to last month at WWE Battleground, but WWE COO Triple H ejected The Lunatic Fringe from the building minutes before the match got under way. Despite the setback, Ambrose made sure Rollins’ night was a rough one nonetheless, repeatedly ambushing The Architect, going so far as to pounce on him in the parking garage.
For The Authority and Rollins in particular, Ambrose has been nothing short of a pariah, constantly derailing Rollins’ efforts to cash in his Money in the Bank Contract. The Lunatic Fringe’s persistence has even caused some in the WWE Universe to speculate The Authority sent him on a recent press tour for the sole purpose of giving Triple H’s anointed one, The Architect, a respite.
Ambrose may have the upperhand at The Biggest Party of the Summer, though, as he won a Beat the Clock Challenge on the Aug. 4 edition of Raw to earn the chance to name the stipulation for his SummerSlam match against Rollins. Ambrose will name the stipulation on Friday’s SmackDown.
Come SummerSlam on Aug. 17, however, the time for sneak attacks and behind-the-scenes machinations will be over, as two of WWE’s brightest young Superstars will clash in a hostile showdown. After months of craving retribution, will Ambrose finally make Rollins pay for selling out to The Authority? Or can The Game’s hand-picked legend-in-the-making fend off Ambrose’s gritty and relentless offensive?
To watch the hotly anticipated battle live, don’t miss SummerSlam when it airs on WWE Network on Sunday, Aug. 17, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!
Somebody needs to call Seths parents because I think something ate his homework. Something in a gray leather jacket answering to the name of Dean Ambrose. After being left off of RAW last week in a feeble attempt by the Authority to keep their little pet Rollins safe, Ambrose is back and he’s got a few games of his own.
Early in the night The Authority announce two matches in a ‘Beat the clock Challenge’ in which Dean and Seth will have a match each and whoever wins in the fastest time gets to pick the stipulations for their newly announced match at Summerslam. Dean is given a rematch against Alberto Del Rio, while Seth is pitted against Rob Van Dam. Dean’s match is first up and it’s oh so surprising the Authority would give a man with a wounded shoulder an opponent who’s specialty move is a Cross Arm-Breaker. Dean starts out looking to get a quick win but Del Rio is a bit too seasoned of a veteran to go down easily. He soon sets to Dean’s shoulder and keeps him grounded for much of the match. However Dean’s a veteran at absorbing punishment and bouncing back from it and that’s exactly what he does, the match boiling down to a trade of heavy hitting moves and pin attempts. It’s Dean’s pure will to survive that leads him to an out of nowhere ‘Dirty Deeds’ on Del Rio. Scoring himself the win – but the time? 15.42. Not a totally lofty goal for Rollins to achieve.
But Dean has some ideas up his sleeves.
As Rollins’ match rolls around The Authority pulls out another wildcard, exchanging his opponent from Rob Van Dam to Heath Slater. Rollins finds this amusing and it looks to be a quick and easy win for him. That is until Ambrose shows up at ringside. Hey, he’s just there to watch. Rollins tells him he’ll win whatever happens and gets back to his match, so Dean ups the ante. He snatches Seths beloved briefcase from the apron and wanders off with it. Taking it to the announce table it doesn’t take long for him to figure out how to open it, inside, he finds Seths shiny little Money in the Bank contract. Unfortunately for Seth, Deans the clumsy sort and as he looks it over he accidentally rips it in half. OOPS. Then as he guiltily looks to an angered Rollins in the ring, he accidentally rips it in half again. These things happen, fingers slip, all that.
Dean takes a bite of the contract and then tosses it aside, but Rollins blows it off as just a piece of paper and goes back to his match. With time ticking down, Dean has to find new ways to be a nuisance. He plucks a soda out of a fans hand and wouldn’t you know it? Dean accidentally pours it in to the briefcase. He puts it aside and goes in search of a snack, taking popcorn from another fan and offering Seth some encouragement because times ticking down. He then upturns the popcorn in to the briefcase along with the soda – you guessed it, total accident. With his snacks ruined, Dean goes in search of something else and finds himself JBL’s cowboy hat. Putting that on for a little dance around the announce table, Dean eventually crushes it in to the briefcase along with the soda and popcorn, gets up on the table and swings it around, splashing everyone with soda!
Rollins is furious, and Heath Slater rolls him up for the pinfall. Seth didn’t beat the time. Dean gets to choose the Summerslam match stipulations. He’ll do so on Friday on Smackdown!
Oh this should be good. Now run and tell your Daddy, Rollins.
With thanks to Lilianne we have new layouts over in the Media Vault and the Gallery (still love the Archive layout too much to change it just yet!) that we hope you’ll all enjoy, make sure you check them out!
Another turbulent week for Dean but it pays off in the Power Rankings as he reaches his highest ranking yet, clawing his way to the #2 spot with a bullet. He’s successfully fended off attacks from Rollins and laid waste to his opponents all week, a good week for the Lunatic Fringe!

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.
