Rob Van Dam won a Battle Royal to become No. 1 contender to the U.S. Title

Looks like Dean Ambrose has a one-of-a-kind challenge on his hands at SummerSlam Kickoff. With 20 Superstars in contention to become No. 1 contender for Ambrose’s stars-and-stripes title, it was Rob Van Dam who beat the odds and outlasted the rest of the WWE roster to claim the coveted spot.

The first part of the Battle Royal was all Ryback, all day: The “Human Wrecking Ball” ran roughshod over everyone in his path. As the herd slowly thinned out, the playing field narrowed down to Mark Henry and RVD, who worked in tandem to toss Ryback. It was Henry’s power that ultimately doomed him when RVD dodged a freight-train charge and sent the former World Champion tumbling over the rope to win the melee.

A gentlemanly handshake between the two was cut short by the arrival of The Shield, but the 3-on-2 odds were soon evened by the sudden return of Big Show, whose presence effectively forced the “Hounds of Justice” into retreat. Can’t really blame them, can you?
