Dean Ambrose kicked Thursday’s hottest show straight into high gear, reminiscing with the WWE Universe about his chaotic Monday night that included a trip to jail and then storming the gates to sign his World Title contract before the show went off the air. After a detailed account of his eventful evening, The Lunatic Fringe delivered a message to The Authority: This Sunday at Elimination Chamber, we will witness the beginning of the “age of Ambrose.”

The Lucha Dragons def. Tyson Kidd & Cesaro in a Tag Team Lumberjack Match

Cesaro & Tyson Kidd battle The Lucha Dragons as The New Day, The Prime Time Players, Los Matadores and The Ascension surround the ring.

With their WWE Tag Team Championship Elimination Chamber Match opponents playing the role of Lumberjacks at ringside, The Lucha Dragons picked up a hard-fought victory over Tyson Kidd & Cesaro. The two teams engaged in a furious battle, but it was a distraction from Xavier Woods that opened the door for Kalisto to hit Salida del Sol on the Hart Dungeon Graduate for the win.

R-Truth def. King Barrett

R-Truth vs. King Barrett: SmackDown, May 28, 2015

The rapping Superstar takes on WWE royalty, three days before WWE Elimination Chamber.

R-Truth wasn’t lying when he said he “puts the ‘D’ in danger.” The rapping Superstar hit the Lie Detector on King Barrett to win their battle of Intercontinental Championship Elimination Chamber Match competitors. R-Truth’s celebration was short-lived, however, as another Chamber Match foe, Sheamus, emerged to deliver a post-match Brogue Kick to both the winner and his royal opponent.

Will we see a similar outcome this Sunday at Elimination Chamber when R-Truth, King Barrett and Sheamus join Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Rusev inside 10 tons of steel?

Ryback def. Rusev by Disqualification

Ryback vs. Rusev: SmackDown, May 28, 2015

The Big Guy goes to war with an extremely frustrated Rusev, still reeling from his break up with Lana.

Lana stated that she is “no man’s property” in her interview with Renee Young, before stating that she, in fact, has no relationship with Dolph Ziggler. Before The Ravishing Russian could expound on The Showoff’s status for Elimination Chamber, however, Rusev interrupted and declared that his former manager dug her grave and now she will rot in it. 

Still fuming after his backstage interaction with Lana moments earlier, Rusev engaged in a hard-hitting battle with Ryback. Both heavyweights traded haymakers before The Super Athlete — who was feeling the effects of an injured ankle — sent The Big Guy head-first into the steel ring post. Still unsatisfied, The Bulgarian Brute channeled his frustration into a continued assault on The Human Wrecking Ball, throwing Ryback into the steel steps.

After their brutal showdown on SmackDown, will Rusev and Ryback be able to endure the punishment of the Elimination Chamber this Sunday?

Paige def. Naomi

Paige vs. Naomi: SmackDown, May 28, 2015

The explosive nature of the Divas division reaches a fever pitch as The Diva of Tomorrow takes on her fellow No. 1 contender to the Divas Title.

Paige finally got payback on Naomi for her Raw attack across the pond, delivering the Paige-Turner to pick up the victory over the former Funkadactyl. After the contest, The Bella Twins arrived on stage, stopping The Diva of Tomorrow from proceeding up the ramp. The British Diva will have her work cut out for her if she hopes to regain the Divas Championship this Sunday at Elimination Chamber in a Triple Threat Match against both the titleholder and Naomi.

The NXT Champion promises to break John Cena at WWE Elimination Chamber.

Kevin Owens likes to fight, but it also became clear that he doesn’t mind talking, as evidenced by his fondness for cutting off Michael Cole during their in-ring interview. The NXT Champion talked a big game, predicting that he will “break” John Cena this Sunday at Elimination Chamber.

Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose def. Seth Rollins & Kane by Disqualification

Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns vs. Kane & Seth Rollins: SmackDown, May 28, 2015

The Lunatic Fringe joins forces with his "brother" in arms Roman Reigns against Kane & WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins in a Raw rematch.

Roman Reigns looked to be on the verge of picking up the pinfall victory over Seth Rollins amid a frenzied tag team clash, but J&J Security were up to their old tricks, interrupting a potential three-count. Technically, The Big Dog & Dean Ambrose won the match by disqualification, but The Authority got the last laugh on this night.

Even with WWE’s Director of Operations Kane summoning backup from all three members of The New Day, Reigns & The Lunatic Fringe mounted an impressive post-match offensive comeback. But alas, the overwhelming odds were too much for the former Shield “brothers” to overcome, as The Architect put an exclamation point on the night by hitting a Pedigree on Ambrose. 

Will WWE’s unstable Superstar fall to Rollins’ Pedigree this Sunday at Elimination Chamber, or will we witness the dawn of a new age?
