“The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose returned to action with a new look on tonight’s SummerSlam go-home RAW from Greensboro in the main event segment, joining Seth Rollins to deliver a beatdown to Drew McIntyre and WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler. Ambrose had been out of action since December 2017 with an ACL injury.
The storyline is that the SummerSlam contract for Rollins vs. Ziggler has a clause in it that allows Rollins to have someone in his corner to even the odds as McIntyre will be in Ziggler’s corner. Rollins revealed at the end of tonight’s show that his former partner in The Shield will be there with him in Brooklyn on Sunday.
The dark main event after this week’s SummerSlam go-home RAW in Greensboro, NC saw Dean Ambrose return to the ring. Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor and Braun Strowman defeated Kevin Owens, Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre and WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler in eight-man action. The finish saw Strowman, Rollins and Balor hit finishers on their SummerSlam opponents while Ambrose hit Corbin with Dirty Deeds for the pin.
