Rassling Ragbag 15/03/31: There is only so much you can take

Not a long time ago I’ve said that I would stop writing these WWE reviews. Dean Ambrose’s promos for the Intercontinental Championship made me change my mind. But now I’m ending this for good. It was a slow process of being disappointed and then not caring anymore. So this is my final say on WWE and all around WrestleMania.

RAW 15/03/23: Dean Ambrose brings back the cocky referee -PLUS- Hallelujah! Brock Lesnar re-signed with WWE to (hopefully) spare us Roman Reigns as champion (for now)

On the last RAW before WrestleMania the last statements were set and WWE tried to make sure that predictions are still hard to make. But the best possible hype for the show was certainly created by Brock Lesnar one day after RAW because with that in mind I have to rethink my predictions.

"I need to be the special guest referee in this match tonight; the WWE Universe needs me to be the special guest referee in this match tonight between Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler. Officiating in WWE has been quite poor as of late. Men have been getting disqualified left and right for not following the rules to the T - technicalities are winning matches. It's not the true spirit of competition, is it? The Intercontinental Championship, the men that held the Intercontinental Championship believed in the spirit of competition. Winning that match in between those ropes with your wits and with your fists tonight. If I am voted the special guest referee in this match, I will uphold the spirit of competition." --DEAN AMBROSE.

SmackDown 15/03/19: Dean Ambrose cheats, steals and finally falls because of his left shoulder – again

I’m late again with my SmackDown review. But that gave me time to make my mind up about WrestleMania, so there are already my predictions. And possibilities. Together with some hopes that are far from going to happen. Enjoy reading!

RAW 15/03/16: Dean Ambrose gets the win for his team but still has the best moment of RAW after the show

I’m back again. Dean Ambrose is made strong again. And Wade Barrett is made strong again. But still Daniel Bryan will get the IC title at WrestleMania. And still WWE tries in quite desperate and ridiculous ways to make Roman Reigns popular. All of this you can read in my latest edition of RAW.

"That's two wins, two in a row for the team of Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler and Dean Ambrose. That's 'cause we're winners. So, when the bell rings, we're putting everything aside and doing what needs to be done to get done because we're all winners. That's the attitude we bring to the table. Seven guys in that ladder match with a winner's attitude. Seven guys are gonna be in that ladder match, hungry to become the Intercontinental Champion. Not just take away the title, walk away with the title, have the title... quite frankly, I'm getting a little sick of it! Now it's time for someone to become the Intercontinental Champion. It's funny, 'cause you know, after all this playing patty cake and playing hot potato, now... now everybody really wants to be the guy to make the Intercontinental Championship something... something bigger than it's ever been before. It's funny how that works, right? Seven guys in that ladder match and I've beaten them all at one point or another. But it doesn't mean anything. It's just like some strange, cruel Japanese game show, this ladder match – anything can happen. It's just a race of climbing ladders and stuff. So, you know, we got two weeks to prepare. But there's no preparation! Anything could happen! See, you just gotta be ready. And I can't speak for the other six guys of that in the ring tonight. Look at me right now – do I look ready to you? Yes, I'm ready! I'm ready to become the Intercontinental Champion – once and for all!" --DEAN AMBROSE.

The Wrestling Week That Was, no. 1: Dean Ambrose’s chances to get the IC title at WrestleMania are further shading

I seriously wasn’t really in the mood to write anything about WWE shows this week. But I have somehow watched the whole RAW episode – mainly because I’ve done a comparing survey with NXT of how much wrestling actually is in WWE shows – and this makes me write this summary of all past three WWE shows of this week. Plus, the very infamous subject that happened, too.

RAW 14/10/13: Dean Ambrose can’t stand all the praise he gets from John Cena -OR- Charles Robinson gets a heart attack from the Russian flag

It’s a crazy game / tell me who’s to blame, I’m kind of curious +++ I ain’t a betting man +++ I’ll just stand here quietly complaining +++ Speak my language +++ It’s love, brother love +++ Stamp your ticket, John +++ Here’s my gun for a barrel of fun +++ You have somebody else I think we imitate +++ I have missed you, Johnny, great to know you by my side

Ambrose Promo no.1:
“There is nothing that I’d like more in this world than to be locked inside ‘Hell In A Cell’ with Seth Rollins, locked inside the devil’s playground. All that steel, all that danger, nowhere to run – just Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins inside that cell. So I can brutalize him, pummel him so bad that he wishes he never even met me. Seth Rollins wishes that he never even heard the name ‘Dean Ambrose’. But before I get there, I get a little someone standing in my way and it’s really, really stressing me out. It’s really pissing me off, this little matter to deal with of a fifteen time WWE champion, a little matter to deal with off of the face of the WWE. I’ve got to go through John Cena first in a ‘No holds barred, contract on a pole’ match. ‘No’, I told John Cena, ‘no, I’ve no problem dropping you where you stand last week here on Raw’, and I did. Cena felt the same way on SmackDown; he did the same to me. So, it’s quite clear what The Authority is trying to do. They want me and John Cena to tear each other apart, so there’s nothing left of either of us. It’s all about protecting, protecting Golden Boy Seth Rollins. And you know what? It’s… you know, it’s fine… I decided there’s only one way to do this. I’m gonna go to ‘Hell In A Cell’. I’m gonna grab that contract off that pole. I’m gonna rib that pole down. And I’m gonna beat John Cena senseless with it. Then I’m gonna go in that cell. I’m gonna bounce Seth Rollins’ head all over that cell like it’s a basketball. And there’s nothing The Authority and there is nothing John Cena can do about it.”
–[Cena comes out, gives veteran advice to shut up and be ready]
“Thanks for the ‘veteran advice’, big brother. But I’ve got news for you: I am ready. I was born ready. I’ve been ready to whop your ass for years. Don’t talk to me like I’m some kind of jump and don’t come out here and act like you care about me. Don’t act like you give a damn about me. And don’t act like I should trust you for one second.”
Ambrose Promo no.2:
“Well, let me tell you what not to expect. Don’t expect me to go out there and be a nice guy. Don’t expect me to go out there to be nice to John Cena cause I’m not a nice guy. Triple H knows that. Triple H is knowing me for a long time. So, he should know by now when I say any time, anywhere, I mean it. If you’re big star bound, it’s a long hard ride. You know, how I see it? I get to the next stop two weeks early. I gonna put John Cena in his place two weeks early. At the ‘Hell In A Cell’ pay-per-view I’m sending Seth Rollins straight to hell. And Cena: stamp your ticket! He’ll sit right next to him. Cena and Rollins both are on the highway to hell!” –DEAN AMBROSE.

RAW 14/10/06: Dean Ambrose doesn’t trust anybody when it comes to hotdogs

Dean Ambrose is still good at hide & seek without even trying +++ That happens when you are too dominant +++ Riding the Cyclone is more fun than teaming with John Cena +++ Kane smiling is like watching Schwarzenegger trying the same in Terminator II +++ Rusev gets a new opponent +++ The stunt double is more popular than the actor +++ Finally

"Yeah, I couldn't sit back there any longer. I've been kicking something around in my head for the last hour or so and something's really, really bothering me. See, lately John Cena --[crowd boos]-- yeah, John Cena lately he's been kinda up in my space and I don't think I like it. John Cena is my partner tonight just like he supposed to be my partner last week on SmackDown, I thought. And then, uh, this happened."--[replay of Cena leaving DA on SmackDown; 'Cena Sucks' chants]"I told John Cena 'don't give me a reason not to like you'. And I'm trying, John, I'm trying real hard. But before we go to the battle together tonight, why don't you just come out here right now? And why don't we just settle this issue face to face right now. Let's hash it out. Please, John, indulge me with your presence."--[Cena comes out, tells DA that he doesn't understand him and that they are clear; Cena leaves ring again]"Yeah, we're clear. You're right. I was about to say the same thing to you. Cause I don't give a crap about you. And you don't give a crap about me. But there's one thing we have in common, John, we don't care what other people think of us. I don't like you and you don't like me. Now, that that's all out in the open, maybe we can co-exist for one night. But if not that's fine. I don't care because I have no problem dropping you where you stand right now and taking on The Authority by myself."--[Cena comes back inside ring, calls DA Einstein and admits that he has guts, he also likes to drop him and tells him 'don't give me a reason not to like you'; 'Cena Sucks' chants from the crowd]"I'm kinda hungry. I think I need to get out of here. I'm gonna hop in the Q-Train heading towards Coney Island. Maybe I'm taking a ride on the Cyclone. Maybe I'm gonna get a hot dog, check out the Wonder Wheel. Hu? Good luck tonight." --DEAN AMBROSE.
