So That Happened: #RAW Recap (05/25/15)


RAW begins with a Memorial Day Tribute:

After a USA Chant, Eden Stiles asks the WWE Universe to have a moment of silence for those who sacrificed their lives for the United States Of America. WWE does a 10 Bell Salute.

After the RAW intro, The Authority comes down to the ring.

Seth Rollins says before we begin tonight’s festivities, let’s give a huge round of applause for Dean Ambrose. After the crowd cheers for Ambrose, Rollins calls Ambrose a common thug, who extorted and imitated his way into a WWE World Heavyweight Title Match.

After a “You Sold Out” chant, Seth Rollins tells the WWE Universe that this isn’t about him, it’s about Dean Ambrose. Rollins says Ambrose is a hero and a role model to the WWE Universe. Rollins tries to speak but gets cut off by a “We Want Ambrose” chant.

Seth Rollins says The Authority made that decision under duress, which is not how The Authority operates and is not Best For Business. Rollins reminds Stephanie McMahon that she said Dean Ambrose didn’t earn a title shot or deserve a title shot. Rollins thinks The Authority can take the title shot away from Ambrose right now. Rollins goes one step further and tells Triple H that if he wanted to, he could fire Dean Ambrose right now. Rollins says Triple H considered it until Rollins asked him not to.

After another “We Want Ambrose” chant, Seth Rollins says Dean Ambrose isn’t really a threat to Rollins. Rollins claims Ambrose is not on his level and that Ambrose rode his coattails in The Shield. Rollins tells Triple H that it was a no-brainer that Triple H picked Seth Rollins over Dean Ambrose to join The Authority. Triple H says it was an easy decision. Triple H tells Dean Ambrose that if he would like to receive his WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match against Seth Rollins at Elimination Chamber, he needs to come down to the ring right now and sign a contract.

Dean Ambrose’s theme plays and Ambrose comes out on the ramp.

Dean Ambrose says that The Authority might find this hard to believe, but there might be something wrong with him. The WWE Universe starts chanting “Ambrose” Goldberg style, which Ambrose enjoys.


Dean Ambrose says he can’t sleep well lately, but instead of counting sheep, he counts punching Seth Rollins in the face. Ambrose says by the time he gets to 200 punches, he sleeps like a baby. Ambrose says beating up Seth Rollins makes him happy. Ambrose says normally, he enjoys kicking the crap out of Seth Rollins for free. Ambrose tells The Authority that he realized next time he kicked the crap out of Seth Rollins, he wanted it to be for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Dean Ambrose tells Rollins that it’s actually gonna happen and all it took was a steel chair, cinder blocks and a little imagination. Ambrose hopes the WWE Universe enjoyed that and he knows The Authority did. Dean Ambrose says there’s a chance that The Authority’s precious boy, Seth Rollins gets replaced by a what the Authority calls a “Lunatic.” Ambrose says while The Authority may call him that, everyone else will be calling Dean Ambrose the New Face Of WWE.

Dean Ambrose says when that happens, he wants to make some changes. Ambrose tells J & J Security that they’ll be going barefoot like respectable hobbits. Ambrose tells Kane that he doesn’t have to wear a suit and can just wear a collar like the obedient lap dog he is. Ambrose tells Rollins that he can drunk dial Selena Gomez because he will always be the WWE’s Justin Bieber.

Seth Rollins tells Dean Ambrose to shut his mouth, but gets cut off by a Justin Bieber chant. Rollins addresses the chants saying he was proud of being a Sellout. Rollins brings up the Bieber chant, and defends himself saying Justin Bieber is rich, famous and has to beat girls off with a stick, and is the most successful artist of his generation. Rollins tells the WWE Universe that they wish they could be Justin Bieber just like Dean Ambrose wishes he could be Seth Rollins.

Seth Rollins tells Dean Ambrose that he will never be Rollins because he’s a cockroach and the thing about cockroaches is that they’re good at surviving, but they never thrive or win. Rollins tells Ambrose that he’s destined to be a loser his entire life. Rollins says he is sick of Dean Ambrose and chasing him away from WWE, and if Ambrose signs that contract, he will scrape Ambrose’s teeth off the bottom of his boot for the last time.

Dean Ambrose says he’d rather be a cockroach then the wrong end of The Authority’s human centipede. Ambrose tells Seth Rollins that this might be crazy and stupid, but it might be worth a shot. Ambrose makes his way down to the ring.

Before Dean Ambrose gets into the ring, Roman Reigns comes down to save him, which Ambrose enjoys.

Stephanie McMahon says everywhere she looks, The Shield boys are inseparable. Stephanie finds this cute and adorable.


Stephanie McMahon tells Ambrose that he has until the end of the night to sign the contract and make his WWE World Heavyweight Title Match official for Elimination Chamber. Stephanie decides to make a Main Event for right now: Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns vs. Kane and Seth Rollins.
