Dean Ambrose

How can you stare at people with a mask on? +++ Dean Ambrose has to deal with a lot of people +++ Paul Heyman isn’t amused +++ The Usos and Big E should have a manager +++ Roman Reigns has to deal with Randy Orton and his servant Kane

SmackDown 14/06/13: Puppet Suit Seth Rollins costs Dean Ambrose his spot in the MITB ladder match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Seth Rollins has got a new nickname +++ Super Reigns is back +++ Cesaro transforms back into being Swiss +++ Summer Rae transforms from chicken to chick +++ Big E isn’t a True American +++ WWE repeats the Dean Ambrose / Seth Rollins feud from FCW

I don't need to tell you what you already know. So, I don't need to tell you what The Authority is trying to do. It's as clear as the day. Triple H, do you think you hold all the cards? Do you think you've stacked the deck against us? Well, listen up, Ghetto, we're not gonna wait for you to deal, we're gonna flip that table right over. And we're coming for your throat. As for puppet suit Seth Rollins, my, uhh... I guess he's not my brother, my former business partner. I'm shutting down the Seth Rollins business for good. --DEAN AMBROSE.

Smackdown 14/05/30: It’s like Dean Ambrose had never held the United States title -OR- Paul Heyman is just an advocate

This is going to be one unusual review of Smackdown. It will be very short, it will include a short prediction for Payback and there will be just a huge rant. Well, the last one won’t be very surprising for every regular reader of this blog section. But sometimes I also tried to be funny. Since I haven’t got much time left, here are my predictions for the outcome of the matches at Payback (the winner is written in capitals / red are the actual results):

SmackDown 14/05/09: Dean Ambrose sells a waist injury while announcers refer to a non-existent left shoulder injury -OR- There is a bit too much twink / daddy love going on between Cesaro and Paul Heyman -OR- Rusev has lost his Alexandr

Dean Ambrose

[The Gif was brought to you by cherrypie-yeahh] || WWE announcers JBL and Michael Cole were clearly confused about all the injuries of the three Shield guys they had to sell on SmackDown. The first match was the re-match for the United States Championship between Sheamus and Dean Ambrose. And from the beginning Michael Cole was referring to a left shoulder injury Dean Ambrose had been supposedly suffered during The Shield’s humiliation by The Evolution on latest RAW. The only problem was that DA himself wasn’t selling this shoulder “injury” but his actual waist injury. It was only made visible when Sheamus pulled the shirt over Dean’s head for his Bodhran beats on Dean’s chest. And Michael Cole was like “Whoops, there might be probably an actual waist injury (damn shirt, so I couldn’t see this taping!)”.

SmackDown 14/05/02: Dean Ambrose retains his title for the 27th time -OR- Damien Sandow ridicules Magneto once again

The match itself was great. Because Dean Ambrose as the winner at the end and because he had to demonstrate strength and power as promotion for the match Shield vs. Evolution at Extreme Rules he had some great moments and fighting sequences. He had to look like the strong guy in this match, the one who was feared most – and he was.

Smackdown 14/04/25: Vendetta à la Shield

Since the episode “The Cycling Tour” in Monty Python’s Flying Circus I love shows with little episodes innit that quite repeat the punchline but present it slightly different every time. So, when Vickie Guerrero (yes, she’s still in WWE and not fired! My brain still hurts from her annoying voice) announced that The Shield would face eleven men at the end of Smackdown for the main event match, that was the initiation for the Shield Vendetta or like I call it The Monty Python Commemorative Tour:

Rassling Ragbag 14/04/19: On the United States Championship reign of Dean Ambrose, and NXT commentary of William Regal

Maybe you have noticed that I haven’t written about the latest two Smackdown episodes. I haven’t forgotten about it. And I certainly have had time to do that. I just refused to write anything about it because I didn’t really care. Not just because The Shield was hardly part of it; I have other wrestlers I enjoy to watch, most notably Cesaro, and Wade Barrett. But even these two weren’t enough for me to make these two Smackdown episodes a permanent memory for me in here.
