Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns confronted WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose
PHOENIX — 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.
