Finally Dean Ambrose speaks out against Bray Wyatt. And he talks about the recent events with the infamous rocking chair. Then Rusev refuses to compete against him. And Bray Wyatt really took it hard that Dean Ambrose destroyed his chair. Consequently Dean Ambrose had to die… again.
Dean Ambrose loves chairs with the exception of one Bray Wyatt chair
I’m not really sure if WWE did it on purpose. But before Dean Ambrose came out for his supposed match against Rusev, on the WWE app appeared this picture of Dean Ambrose that I used for this edit I did for the featured image of this very article. If you aren’t familiar with Dean Ambrose’s / Jon Moxley’s past, then it’s just a picture of him, hood of his hoodie on his head. But for me it was a little reminder on the time anno 2006 when he appeared as one of The Undertaker’s druids at the Royal Rumble that year (Jon Moxley is the one on Untertaker’s right). He did have this little period of time in WWE around January 2006 as Jon Moxley, and since we don’t see Dean Ambrose with the hood on his head very often in WWE shows, it was an instant connection inside of my mind. But I really doubt that this connection was indeed made on purpose by WWE because that would be slightly too much depth added to this storyline requiring a little too much memory about almost ten years back. But maybe it was done on purpose by Dean Ambrose, him thinking, since Bray Wyatt is that familiar with hell and its inhabitants, he maybe would remember and be afraid of him even more.
So, when Dean Ambrose finally made it inside of the ring, he addressed vicious attack to Bray Wyatt’s holy chair. Dean Ambrose still didn’t care about the furniture itself but he somehow noticed that it meant a lot to Bray Wyatt. He noticed that before – that’s why he destroyed the chair – but he noticed it even more after when he saw that Bray Wyatt was nearly crying about his loss. I’m sure you have already read Dean Ambrose’s promo in the caption above, so I don’t need to repeat it. It’s just another great promo to create even more hype about their match at TLC in which Bray Wyatt will hopefully step up his game a bit to make it a great match.
Dean Ambrose gives away the second of his nine lives
Since there was still a match scheduled, Rusev came out with Lana but she said that Rusev won’t be compete because he was apparently injured during the little brawl with Jack Swagger on Monday night. A bit of slaying America and praising Russia later, Dean Ambrose made it clear to both of them that he was there to fight, so he left the ring and began to walk slowly towards the ramp when Bray Wyatt appeared and attacked him from behind. Well, it was quite foreseeable to be honest, since there is this back and forth attack between these two for weeks now. Dean Ambrose attacks Bray Wyatt on a Monday; Bray Wyatt attacks Dean Ambrose on a Friday. But this time, WWE has added something. Because Dean Ambrose destroying Bray Wyatt’s rocking chair was indeed a symbol. It was right with Bray Wyatt from the beginning of The Wyatt Family in WWE. It was Bray Wyatt’s connection with Sister Abigail and he told Dean Ambrose that this chair belonged to her, when he was pressing him against the barricades. Just a mere seconds before he brought a chair to Dean Ambrose’s neck to smash this chair right into Dean Ambrose’s neck, so the attacked one gasped for oxygen quite a while until doctors and officials arrived at the scene to help.
Storyline-wise Dean Ambrose was first diagnosed with “crushed trachea with inflammation or a tracheal contusion” but in an update it’s just a swelling and he is monitored to make sure his breathing works. Of course, the man himself is okay and you can always tell so because WWE only came out with these reports on Friday despite SmackDown is taped on the Tuesday before. If it was a real injury, reports would have certainly come out on Tuesday night. So, if you were still unsure: don’t be afraid. This angle is just used to make Dean Ambrose stronger and angrier for his match against Bray Wyatt at TLC.
PS. On coming Wednesday and Friday, Dean Ambrose will be the guest of Chris Jericho’s podcast “Talk Is Jericho” for a two-part interview.
