Dean Ambrose, John Cena & The Authority Kick Off RAW
This week’s show opens up with an elaborate video package highlighting the history of the John Cena, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins feud.
From there, Dean Ambrose’s theme hits and out he comes. He opens by saying there’s nothing he’d like more than to be locked inside Hell In A Cell with Seth Rollins. He talks about how he’d like to brutalize him.
He switches gears to explain that he’s got to get through John Cena before he can get to Rollins. He talks about the No Holds Barred contract-on-a-pole match. He reminds us that he told us he had no problem dropping Cena where he stands, and he did, but he reminds us that Cena did the same to him.
Ambrose throws the mic down, thinking he’s done, but Cena’s music hits. Ambrose picks the mic back up as Cena makes his way out to the top of the stage.
Cena makes his way to the ring to the usual mixed reaction. The boo’s grow in Atlanta as Cena’s music fades down. “So this is why they call it Hot-Lanta, huh?” opens Cena. He tells Ambrose he needs to relax. He says the match is made, but it’s two weeks from now at Hell In A Cell.
Cena tells Ambrose he’s got the biggest match of his life at Hell In A Cell, so he’s going to give him some veteran advice: “shut up.” Cena tells Ambrose to quit acting crazy and save his energy for Hell In A Cell.
Ambrose thanks Cena for his veteran advice, but says no thank you. He warns Cena not to talk to him like he’s some kind of chump. Cena again warns Ambrose to chill out. Ambrose drops the mic and is about to get physical, but The Authority comes out and stops them.
Triple H starts by telling both guys that they have two weeks until their fight. After a corny WWE Network “$9.99” plug, Steph talks about making a tag-team match with those two as partners tonight. Steph mocks their argument, HHH and her argue over whether or not Cena and Ambrose can be partners without killing each other.
Steph goes on to announce a match with Cena and Ambrose against The Usos and Goldust and Stardust. It’s a triple-threat tag-team match, as she calls it.
John Cena & Dean Ambrose vs. Goldust & Stardust vs. The Usos
With that said, the WWE Tag-Team Champions, Goldust and Stardust make their way out to the ring. Out next are the former champs, The Usos. Apparently this match is happening right now. We head to commercial during The Usos’ entrance.
When we return from commercial, Ambrose and Uso start things off in the ring. Ambrose establishes control and quickly tags in Cena. Cena picks up where Ambrose left off as the fans do the dueling “let’s go Cena” and “Cena sucks” chants. Cena tags Ambrose back in.
The story of the match early on seems to be the fact that Ambrose and Cena are able to co-exist. They keep dominating their opposition and tagging the other back in to continue where they left off. Uso finally establishes control over Cena and after a quick double-team spot, the other Uso tags in and remains in control as the fans jump on Cena’s case again with chants.
A random “we want Stardust” chant breaks out as Uso keeps Cena grounded and Stardust jumps up and down on the bottom rope from the apron, hoping for the tag. Instead, Cena finally makes the tag. Ambrose comes back in and takes back over control of the offense over Uso. This lasts until Stardust tags himself in, smacking Ambrose on the back. On that note, we head to a mid-match commercial break.
We’re back from the break and Stardust and Uso are still going at it in the ring. Stardust appears to be firmly in control, as he crotches Uso on the middle rope in the corner and tags Goldust in. Goldust picks up where Stardust left off, taking it to Uso. He goes for a pin attempt, but the other Uso breaks it up.
Finally, after all the guys take themselves out, Cena gets the tag and is left alone with Stardust in the ring. Cena fires up, including a big Five Knuckle Shuffle. Stardust avoids the A.A., which leads to a quick slam from Goldust and a super kick to Goldust from Uso. Both Usos hit the big dives over the top onto the Dust Brothers on the floor. Cena ends up climbing to the top and splashes all four team members on the floor as Ambrose says screw it, runs to the opposite top rope and hits a wicked flying elbow onto all guys on the floor.
Ambrose rolls Goldust and Cena back in the ring. Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds while Cena hits the A.A., both on the Dust Brothers. Cena makes the cover. 1-2-3. Cena and Ambrose win.
