Report by: Dustin Holland
WWE: Then. Now. Forever.
Jerry Lawler, Byron Saxton and Tom Phillips on commentary, building up hype for Money in the Bank on June 14th. Just 10 days away.
We start out with scenes from Elimination Chamber showing how Rollins pushed the referee under a flying Dean Ambrose during the match. With the referee down, Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds and gets the pinfall and the win after another referee comes down from the back. We are then shown the moment where the original referee declares Dean Ambrose the winner of the match but it is by DQ and Rollins retains the World Heavyweight Title. Ambrose takes the WWE championship belt and then leaves through the crowd with Roman Reigns leaving Seth Rollins shocked.
Seth Rollins’ music hits and he makes his way to the ring. He explains how he doesn’t need anybody to help him to win the Money in the Bank Ladder Match against Dean Ambrose, continuing with his feelings from Monday Night. Rollins claims that he is the Greatest WWE World Heavyweight Champion of all Time.
We then hear Dean Ambrose on the big screen interrupting Rollins. He says he can’t remember Rollins doing anything on his own even when they were Shield Mates. He tells us that he is walking in to Money in The Bank with the Championship Belt and is walking out with it after he wins the Ladder Match in two weeks.
Rollins is fuming in the ring as Dean Ambrose’s music hits.
