With the stage set for Summerslam and the Lumberjack Match between Rollins and Ambrose, all that’s left is the mind games and it definitely seems like Dean’s gotten under Seth’s skin. Rollins takes on Rob Van Dam in a singles match on RAW and while Seth picks up the win, he’s afraid of his own shadow as he leaves the ring and rightly so. With the top of the ramp loaded with presents for Hulk Hogans birthday celebration, Seth feels a little like he’s being watched when he spots the largest of the gifts. It couldn’t be, right?
He edges closer to the large box, nudges it, even tries to push it over before he decides he’s just being stupid and paranoid. Laughing to himself Rollins goes to leave but he should have trusted his instincts, as soon as his back’s turned the presents torn open and Ambrose leaps out of it! Jumping Seth from behind he viciously beats him all the way down to the ring where Seth somehow manages to slip free and escape his grasp, running out through the crowd and as far from Dean as he can manage. Dean grabs a mic and gets back in to the ring, taunting him and telling him to run while he still can. On Sunday he won’t be going anywhere.
And all for the bargain price of.. wait for it.. $9.99.
Later on in the night Dean was spotted pacing and generally fidgeting alongside Cesaro as the entire roster celebrated Hulk Hogans Birthday, spot him in the video if you can!
After another eventful week in the world of revenge and Dean Ambrose, he sticks to his guns on the Power Rankings as well. Holding his #2 spot despite the vicious beatdown from Rollins on Smackdown. His RAW antics more than earned him his placement, despite the one hiccup, another good week for Ambrose.
After a successful campaign on Monday Night RAW, Dean arrives on Smackdown with a Ace up his sleeve. He gets to pick the stipulation for his match against Rollins at Summerslam. After a replay of RAW’s shenanigans Dean says the Authority thought they had a foolproof plan on RAW but the problem is you just can’t ‘Plan’ for someone like Dean Ambrose. Now he’s had a whole week to think up some options for the stipulation and he takes a moment to read out a scribbled few. He offers out a ‘JBLs cowboy hat on a pole’ match to a rather frosty reception from the commentator. He’d looked in to getting some alligators to surround the ring but that was just going to be a logistical nightmare. A sumo wrestling match, boxing match.. they could just fight in the parking lot but they already did that. Then suggestion of the night! “Loser cleans Triple H’s Car” match – but then Seth already seems to have that job in hand.
That seems to strike a nerve and Rollins shows his face, coming out on to the ramp to interrupt and tell Dean to get on with it, that his tactics on RAW might have deserved a little credit but it’s time to get serious. Seth demands to know the stipulation and Dean’s glad to oblige. During their time in The Shield they made a lot of enemies and Dean’s sick of watching Rollins hightail it away from him whenever they get in the ring together. So to avoid a repeat of Battleground he’s going to surround the ring with a ‘Wall of Bodies’ – people they’ve wronged over the past year, and those people are going to ensure they tear each other apart inside that ring.
Dean firmly states that Summerslam, August 17th will be the day Mister Money in the Bank goes Broke. Seth counters, saying the Authority have given him the power to choose Dean’s opponent for Smackdown tonight and he picks the Viper, Randy Orton. Someone Dean would be more than happy to settle a score with after what was done to Roman Reigns. He welcomes the challenge.
The Main Event rolls around and Dean barely waits for the bell before he assaults Orton, leaping on him and gaining the quick advantage with his usual frantic style. However the calculated Orton picks his moment to strike and goes for Dean’s shoulder, once again hitting the bullseye on him and torturing him for much of the match. But Dean’s an expert at soaking up punishment, taunting Orton with laughter and goading him to try and hurt him more. As Dean swings momentum back in his favor and looks to be headed toward victory, Rollins interrupts. Tugging Dean from the ring and sending him smashing repeatedly in to steel stairs, Dean fights back and slams Rollins in to the barrier, their brawl spilling back in to the ring where the Viper strikes. Orton laying Dean out with an RKO. Rollins picks himself up and beats down on Dean for a little longer, then takes a little revenge. Plucking a Coke from the hand of a fan, he takes it back in to the ring and pours it over Deans head, then turns him on to his back and tries to pour it down his throat. Dean reels away from that and Rollins grabs his face, telling him at Summerslam this ends.
Seth puts the exclamation point on that as he delivers a curb stomp to the back of Deans head, closing out the show. Revenge tastes a little like artificial sweeteners and coloring.
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.

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.
