The 1114th edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL. Ever since making his surprise return at Night of Champions, Dean Ambrose has not given The Authority a moment of rest as every person on the side of The Authority has been scrambling to contain “The Lunatic Fringe”, but after Ambrose made off with Seth Rollins’ Money-in-the-Bank briefcase on SmackDown, “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” is more determined than ever to destroy his former Shield brethren once and for all. After a Curb Stomp through a stack of cinder blocks was not enough to get rid of Dean Ambrose, what new lows will The Authority stoop to in order to bring the unpredictable Dean Ambrose down and get Seth Rollins’ Money-in-the-Bank briefcase back?
In the last week, Seth Rollins has certainly been making things very difficult on himself as “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” has not only had ongoing problems with Dean Ambrose, but Rollins’ interference in the rematch between Brock Lesnar and John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions has put Seth Rollins in the crosshairs of John Cena, as well. With “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” always on the run from both John Cena and Dean Ambrose, The Authority’s Director of Operations Kane and “The Viper” Randy Orton have reluctantly been enlisted to fight Seth Rollins’ battles for him, but after Orton told Triple H last week that Seth Rollins needs to stop “setting fires” that Orton and Kane have to “put out”, how long will Randy Orton and the rest of The Authority put up with Seth Rollins seemingly picking fights with everyone on the roster?
Last week was certainly an interesting week, to say the least, for Dolph Ziggler and the Intercontinental Championship as, at Night of Champions, The Miz would use a handful of tights to defeat “The Show-Off” for the Intercontinental Title, but, one night later, Dolph would use the exact same tactics to win the Intercontinental Title back from “The A-Lister” on RAW. Then, on SmackDown, Cesaro would win a battle royal to become the #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Title and, later that same night, Cesaro would get his title shot. However, the title match would end in controversy as Dolph Ziggler would roll Cesaro up, but the referee would fail to see Cesaro’s grip on the bottom rope and the official would make the three-count. Now, with The Miz owed a guaranteed rematch for the title and Cesaro entitled to a rematch following the controversy on SmackDown, Dolph Ziggler’s week will certainly get off to another rough start as “The Show-Off” will defend the Intercontinental Championship against both The Miz and Cesaro in a Triple Threat Match on RAW!
