Backstage Segment: Seth Rollins, Triple H and Cesaro
Triple H is backstage talking to Seth Rollins about why he shouldn’t face John Cena at Summerslam. Triple H says he has the Money in the Bank contract and you can’t put your cards on the table like that. Rollins asks what the point is. Every time he tries to make a play, Dean Ambrose interferes. Cesaro walks up, and he says he should face Cena at Summerslam. He’s a walking Money in the Bank contract. Anytime you put him in a championship match, he’ll get the job done. Triple H is all about what’s best for business. He made a business decision. As of right now, he is no longer a “Heyman Guy.” He wants to be Triple H’s guy. Rollins says that Triple H already has a guy. Triple H says this is uncomfortable. Triple H says there is some unfinished business around here. If Cesaro can finish that business against Dean Ambrose tonight, that would impress him. Cesaro shakes hands with him and tells him to consider it done. Cesaro walks off. Rollins asks what that was about. Triple H says he doesn’t know but they’ll see what he’s got.
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 Money in the Bank contract — or from being safe from him anywhere ever again.
After suffering a vicious ambush at the hands of Seth Rollins, Randy Orton and Kane on Raw, Dean Ambrose kicked off SmackDown by asking his attackers if that was all they had – calling them out in the process. Instead, Rollins appeared on the TitanTron, informing his former “business associate” that while he had tweaked his knee and was not medically cleared to engage him on Friday night, COO Triple H had put The Lunatic Fringe into a match against The Devil’s Favorite Demon.
Dean Ambrose vs Kane
In the height of SmackDown’s main event, just after Dean Ambrose had countered Kane’s attempt to blast him with the Tombstone onto the steel ring steps, Seth Rollins emerged and hit his one-time business associate with the Money in the Bank briefcase. He then executed a Curb Stomp to Ambrose onto the unforgiving steps, pounding a message into The Lunatic Fringe, just two days before their highly anticipated showdown at WWE Battleground.
@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
SETH ROLLINS: I learned about Kenta in 2004 or 2005 when I first started breaking into the wrestling business. I caught some tapes of him in Japan wrestling for Noah against Marufuji and thought to myself, “That guy kicks harder than any human being I’ve ever seen in my life and I don’t know how anyone is getting up.”
WWE.COM: What are some of your favorite Kenta matches?
ROLLINS: Any match against Marufuji. They had an extended rivalry. Also, Kenta vs. Daniel Bryan in Ring of Honor [at Glory by Honor V in 2006] is one of my favorite matches of all time.
WWE.COM: What was the first time you met him, and what was it like to meet him?
ROLLINS: I met him at a Ring of Honor show we were both on. Very intimidating, but in the end, just a quiet, soft-spoken, very humble Japanese fellow.
WWE.COM: What does the signing of Kenta mean for the landscape of WWE and the roster in general to have an established Japanese star?
ROLLINS: It’s been quite some time since WWE has really went out of its way to sign an established Japanese star. If you look at his resume, not just in Japan, but worldwide, it’s a coup for the company. He’s a legitimate, bona fide global wrestling phenomenon, and I’m looking forward to having him on the roster.
WWE.COM: Who would you like to see Kenta wrestle in WWE?
ROLLINS: I wouldn’t mind locking horns with him one more time. I would love to see him get in the ring with Cesaro. I think he would have a really interesting match with Sheamus. I would love to see how someone like Randy Orton might combat him. I think it’ll be really interesting just to see how he gels with the locker room.
WWE.COM: Do you think he’ll need to adapt his style in WWE?
ROLLINS: Anybody that’s ever come here has had to adapt their style in some way, shape or form. You’ve gotta find a medium between what brought you to the dance and what’s gonna get you to the top. I hope Kenta is able to — and I’m sure he will be able to — find that in-between. Overall, I hope he doesn’t change too much. He’s super talented, and I just want to see him succeed and do well.
WWE.COM: What is Kenta’s potential to succeed here?
ROLLINS: The sky’s the limit for him. He’s got unlimited potential based on his skill set. He’s not the prototypical WWE Superstar. He’s not Hulk Hogan and he’s not John Cena, but he has a certain charisma about him that’s completely different than what anybody else has in the company right now. He’s got an opportunity to bring a different style to the game in an era when MMA is very prominent. Guys his size who hit as hard as he does are very popular and can connect with an audience.
WWE.COM: You teamed with him in a match in 2009. What was that like?
ROLLINS: Teaming with Kenta was awesome, just because that meant I didn’t have to get kicked by him. He had a rivalry with [Katsuhiko] Nakajima and I had a rivalry with Austin Aries, so we were paired together by circumstance. We gelled very well as a tag team and won that match, due in no small part to how awesome he was and how willing he was to incorporate my style into his. We had a really good time.
WWE.COM: What was it like to wrestle him later that year in Chicago?
ROLLINS: There was no rivalry going into that match. It was just one of those dream matches that Ring of Honor was very famous for putting on. His style was completely unlike anything I was used to. His speed and ferocity were unmatched at that point in his career. I just wanted to do my best to survive and I came out of it relatively unscathed. I had lots of bumps and bruises, had the wind knocked out of me on multiple occasions, but I survived, and I thought we had a pretty good match. I had a helluva time, but it was one of those deals where when you’re in the ring with him, it’s more about survival than it is about winning.
WWE.COM: Do you prefer teaming with him or competing against him?
ROLLINS: I’m a glutton for punishment. I liked wrestling against him rather than teaming with him. I like anybody that can bring out the best in me or showcase a side of me that I’m unfamiliar with, and he definitely did that. He took me to a place mentally and physically where I had never been before. I had to take a lot of blows. Not that I’m not used to that, but I’m telling you, his kicks are lethal. I enjoyed wrestling him before and I’m hoping to do it again.
