MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Dean Ambrose will have to wait to see his face up on WWE World Headquarters’ wall of champions, but he was able to walk out of WWE Fastlane with the Intercontinental Title. The Lunatic Fringe may have lost his match against Bad News Barrett by disqualification, but when the unstable Ambrose wants something, you better believe he is going to take it, whether or not it’s rightfully his.

The bout contained no shortage of action as both the British brawler and his unstable challenger traded heavyweight strikes. The contest moved inside and outside the ring with both men showing a remarkable ability to bounce back from damaging blows. However, the title holder seemed to grow tired of facing his opponent’s relentless attack, at one point even trying to walk off with his championship.

Barrett would go a step further when he tried to escape into the WWE Universe before Ambrose grabbed his adversary and pulled him back into action. Unfortunately for The Lunatic Fringe, his unrelenting  assault would have its consequences as the referee disqualified the challenger after he refused to stop his attack on Barrett in the corner.

Although the Intercontinental Champion would retain his title with the disqualification victory, Ambrose would get the last laugh. The wild Superstar enlisted a post-match attack on Barrett, hitting the British Superstar with Dirty Deeds before walking off with the Intercontinental Title.

Watch: The lunatic champion?

Barrett technically came away with the Intercontinental Championship, but it doesn’t look like he will be able to wear it around his waist  any time soon. With Ambrose walking out of Memphis with the Intercontinental Title in tow, what is next for these growing rivals? And how will Bad News Barrett react after having his coveted title taken from him?
