The saga of the Intercontinental Championship continues on Smackdown as Wade Barrett interrupts Daniel Bryan to do a little more complaining about the fact Ambrose ‘stole’ it from him. We think stole is a little harsh. We prefer ‘liberated from a mediocre Champion’.. it just sounds better. Of course, Dean isn’t one to stand around and be bad mouthed and quickly comes to the ring to confront Barrett too, a brawl breaking out that ends up with Bryan holding the title. Barrett confronts him and demands it back, Bryan lingers, then hands it over only for Wade to turn right in to a fist from Ambrose. Wade retreats, Ambrose has the belt and a glance between he and Bryan suggests yet another man may have his eye on this prize.
Dean goes on to face The Miz in a one on one match up and mid way through the match, Barrett appears and steals the belt! Deans distracted but not enough to lose, hitting Miz with Dirty Deeds and picking up another victory in his recent streak, but Barretts long gone with that belt.
Backstage, Barrett tells Renee Young that Deans nothing but a common thief and he’s never getting the belt back. Wade is put in to a one on one match up against Bryan and as that match happens, R Truth – on commentary at ringside – sneaks up and stuffs the belt in his jacket. Wades distraught as he loses to Bryan, his precious belt long gone.
Backstage, Dean confronts Truth and says he’ll be needing that title back. To his surprise, Truth simply hands it over! Well.. who would argue with a lunatic?
WWE have announced there will be a ‘Multiple Man’ Ladder Match at Wrestlemania for the Intercontinental Title – participants yet to be announced, but I think we can hazard a pretty good guess!
Dean Ambrose spoke to Asbury Park Press about returning back to New Jersey on March 2nd, 2015 and his path on the road to WrestleMania 31 in Santa Clara, CA.
Before World Wrestling Entertainment makes its way to Santa Clara, California’s Levi’s Stadium for WrestleMania 31 on March 29, it’s taking care of some business closer to home.
The globally watched, Connecticut-based company has long treated our area as its home turf; eight WrestleManias have taken place in New Jersey, New York or Pennsylvania to date. On Monday, March 2, WWE’s flagship broadcast, “Monday Night Raw,” airs live from Newark’s Prudential Center.
Among the stars expected to appear is fan-favorite anti-hero Dean Ambrose, a Cincinnati native formerly from Philadelphia who now calls Las Vegas home.
“It’s not a show you want to miss because all of the stars are going to be there, and it’s the time of year where surprises happen and twists and turns happen,” Ambrose said.
Ambrose, 29, worked his way through the independent wrestling scene before signing with WWE in 2011 and making his proper debut with the company the following year. He’s logged countless in-ring hours in our neck of the woods over the course of his career.
After losing his bout to Bad News Barrett for the Intercontinental Championship at WWE Fastlane, Dean Ambrose looked to “borrow” the championship belt from Barrett. On Monday Night RAW, Dolph Ziggler picked up a win against Barrett. Ambrose made an appearance, exchanging words with an injured Barrett. Ambrose bumped shoulders with Ziggler, and then took off, again with the championship belt. With Thursday Night SmackDown around the corner, what can we expect from our favorite Lunatic Fringe?

Dean’s on the media rounds again today in Atlanta, GA and stopped by Rock 100.5 radio. He discusses taking Wade Barrett’s title, Wrestlemania, the breakup of the shield and more! Full version of the interview below.
Ambrose is angry, after Barrett cost him the match last night at Fastlane by simply refusing to fight and causing Dean to get himself disqualified, he stole the Intercontinental Championship anyway and has declared himself the rightful – fighting – champion. He says Barretts a disgrace to the title and doesn’t deserve to hold it.
On RAW, Wade says Dean’s a thief and a cheat and he wants his belt back. But theres another man that says he has a claim to a title shot: R Truth. With Truth on commentary, Barrett takes on Ziggler one on one and it’s not a good night for Barrett as Ziggler beats him with the Zig Zag. Now Ziggler thinks he has a claim to the title too. Enter Ambrose, who stalks down to the ring with the title in hand and gets in Barretts face – and Zigglers. They want it? They’ll have to pry it from him with a crowbar. With that, Dean shoves Ziggler out of the way and leaves.
4 men fighting over the gold? Dean’s already doing when he promised he would. Making the Intercontinental Championship important again.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Dean Ambrose will have to wait to see his face up on WWE World Headquarters’ wall of champions, but he was able to walk out of WWE Fastlane with the Intercontinental Title. The Lunatic Fringe may have lost his match against Bad News Barrett by disqualification, but when the unstable Ambrose wants something, you better believe he is going to take it, whether or not it’s rightfully his.
The bout contained no shortage of action as both the British brawler and his unstable challenger traded heavyweight strikes. The contest moved inside and outside the ring with both men showing a remarkable ability to bounce back from damaging blows. However, the title holder seemed to grow tired of facing his opponent’s relentless attack, at one point even trying to walk off with his championship.
Barrett would go a step further when he tried to escape into the WWE Universe before Ambrose grabbed his adversary and pulled him back into action. Unfortunately for The Lunatic Fringe, his unrelenting assault would have its consequences as the referee disqualified the challenger after he refused to stop his attack on Barrett in the corner.
Although the Intercontinental Champion would retain his title with the disqualification victory, Ambrose would get the last laugh. The wild Superstar enlisted a post-match attack on Barrett, hitting the British Superstar with Dirty Deeds before walking off with the Intercontinental Title.
Barrett technically came away with the Intercontinental Championship, but it doesn’t look like he will be able to wear it around his waist any time soon. With Ambrose walking out of Memphis with the Intercontinental Title in tow, what is next for these growing rivals? And how will Bad News Barrett react after having his coveted title taken from him?
