Follow The Lunatic Fringe from an arena in Seattle, Washington to a desert in Las Vegas, Nevada as he prepares himself mentally and physically for the Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match at WrestleMania 31.
One of the most unexpectedly compelling rivalries on the path to The Grandest Stage of Them All has been the seven-man scrum over the fate of the Intercontinental Championship. With Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler seemingly splintering off into a mini-rivalry of their own, four of the remaining contenders teamed up on Raw while reigning champion Bad News Barrett took up R-Truth’s now customary post at the commentary table.
Considering all four of the competitors are harboring some degree of mental instability, the contest was far more demented than your typical tag-team bout. Stardust & Harper didn’t take long to get on the same deranged page against their rowdy opponents. The two fiends took turns using Ambrose as their be-jeaned punching bag until Truth tagged in to even the odds, taking advantage of a brief brawl to catch Stardust with the Lie Detector for the victory.
Granted, It’s not WrestleMania, but Dolph Ziggler’s gentleman’s challenge to Daniel Bryan from a few months ago came true all the same in a Raw showdown that pitted The Showoff against Bryan with a special guest referee — Dean Ambrose — as determined by the WWE Universe via an App vote. Despite the two Superstars’ mutual respect for each other, sportsmanship broke down in quick fashion and Ambrose had no intention of stopping a fight from breaking out at a wrestling match, cackling his head off as the two started slapping each other across the face.
As the match ramped up, Ziggler planted Bryan with a top-rope facebuster, but The Beard once again attempted to pin The Showoff with a backslide. Again, Ziggler kicked out of the maneuver and, as Bryan attempted to tenderize him with running dropkicks, pounced with a superkick and Zig Zag for the win. The glory was short-lived, however, as the rest of the playing field for the Ladder Match stormed the ring for a bench-clearing brawl that left no stone unturned and nobody standing.
Another Interview from Dean’s radio rounds this week, promoting Wrestlemania 31 on Sunday. Dean called in to Live Audio Wrestling Radio and discussed the Shield, the Wrestlemania Ladder match and main eventing Hell In A Cell with Seth Rollins.
Dean spoke with Philly.com about his upcoming match at Wrestlemania and the path he’s taken to get there, a former Philly resident, he reflects upon how different his life is now compared to back then. Check it out!
Nothing is ever quite right in Dean Ambrose’s world. On television, Ambrose is seemingly constantly playing a balancing act on the thin line between sanity and madness. As a result, he’s been dubbed the “Lunatic Fringe,” which is a very eloquent way of saying he is quite unstable. And whatever is bothering him at that moment in time, he always seems to settle it with his fists.
In reality, however, not much is bothering him. In fact, life is pretty good for the Lunatic Fringe. Ambrose (real name Jonathan Good) is in his physical prime, he’s earning a good living doing what he loves and he’s getting ready to walk down the aisle for a marquee match at the biggest event of the year, WrestleMania, which emanates from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. March 29.
But there is one thing the former WWE United States Champion could complain about: his beloved Philadelphia Flyers. Despite being a native of Cincinnati, Ambrose fell in love with the Flyers during his time living in Manayunk prior to his years in the WWE. The Flyers’ rollercoaster season has irked Ambrose so much that he deleted the app that gave him Flyers updates from his phone, as it constantly bombarded him with bad news.
Every time the Flyers would fall behind early in games, Ambrose’s phone would go off. Every time the Flyers lost to a lesser team, Ambrose’s phone was there to remind him of it. Eventually, he grew tired of the app, but he still has love for the Flyers and for the City of Brotherly Love. “I always got a good vibe from Philly because it’s a hard-nose kind of town,” Ambrose said during an interview with philly.com. “Everybody wakes up and goes to work and has to deal with bad weather and traffic and whatever else.”
“There’s no B.S.,” he added. “Everybody’s got some business to do and it’s a hard-working, blue-collar feel to the town. I just like the vibe of it. I always enjoyed my time there. It fit my mood and my personality very well at the time; just working really hard and digging and scraping and trying to make a better name for myself or make a few nickels in this business. At the time, it was the perfect place for me. It was a reflection of where I was at mentally.” Read more
