Dean Ambrose sold Seth Rollins' stomp for so long at a WWE live event that the crew started to take the ring down around him.
On Raw this week, it looks as if the latest chapter of Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins' rivalry may have come to an end. Ever since The Lunatic turned on his former Shield-brother just moments after they won the Raw Tag Titles, the pair has been at each other's throats. Ambrose is even Intercontinental Champion, a title he won from Rollins.
On Monday night, Rollins had a chance to win that championship back in a falls count anywhere match. However, interference from Bobby Lashley prevented him from accomplishing that task. Those actions coupled with the brawl to start Raw would suggest that Rollins attention will now shift to Lashley, and someone else will come knocking for Ambrose's IC Title.
Ambrose will be hoping that's the case anyway. It will mean he doesn't have to lie on the mat for 15 minutes after a main event match. Okay, let us explain. On Sunday night in Fort Myers, Ambrose and Rollins headlined a WWE live event. Even though The Lunatic won the match, he did so by raking the eyes of his opponent. An irate Rollins then decided to deliver a stomp to the champ after the match.

Judging by what happened next, it might well have been the most powerful stomp Rollins has ever delivered. Ambrose remained face down in the ring for a full 15 minutes. So long, in fact, the ring crew was forced to start dismantling equipment around him as he led there motionless. As you can see above, most fans had left the arena and Ambrose was still lying there. All we know is he must have got up within 24 hours as he was on Raw the following night.
We are big fans of heel Ambrose, and equally as interested in his matches with Rollins. However, the two can't fight forever. As the road to WrestleMania nears, both men need to find who they will be having marquee matches with on the grandest stage of them all. Fingers crossed that Rollins path crosses Brock Lesnar's. As for Ambrose and the IC Title, a program with Finn Balor wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.
