Dean Ambrose attacked Elias Samson
You can’t really blame Dean Ambrose for being a little raw (so to speak) about what went down at WWE Extreme Rules.
After Ambrose somehow managed to adhere to the stipulation that he could lose the Intercontinental Title to The Miz via disqualification at WWE Extreme Rules, a confrontation with the referee allowed The A-Lister to pin Dean the old-fashioned way, all of which is to say that The Lunatic Fringe wasn’t really in the mood for Elias Samson’s singing insults on Raw.
Ambrose ambushed Samson mid-ballad and threw him into the crowd, only stopping to demand his title rematch with The A-Lister. But Miz, having plenty of experience in avoiding people who want to beat him up, came prepared: The new Intercontinental Champion was ensconced in the safety of the backstage area, from which he revealed that Ambrose would not be getting a rematch, and Miz would instead kick off his “Intercontinental Championship Comeback Tour” with a celebration later in the evening.
And then, finally, Samson sprang back up and laid out Ambrose. Adding insult to injury (injuries?), Kurt Angle gave Ambrose the night off when the deposed former champion went hunting for The A-Lister backstage.
