The Ambrose Asylum may yet get its crown jewel back, as Dean Ambrose prepares to once again battle The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship tonight at the first-ever WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view.
When Raw General Manager Kurt Angle made the match official, he put The Lunatic Fringe back in the running to relieve Miz of the title that The Awesome One captured in controversial fashion at WWE Extreme Rules. However, it remains to be seen whether Ambrose’s unpredictable nature will be enough to regain the coveted prize now that the odds have been stacked against him.
Though Ambrose has been able to get inside The A-Lister’s head in recent weeks and has even driven a wedge into the Intercontinental Champion’s marriage, the titleholder has struck back by acquiring Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel as members of his Miztourage. Together, the devious pair has helped increase Miz’s good fortune – both with a giant teddy bear sneak attack and then in Six-Man Tag Team action. After Miz defeated Heath Slater to retain his title, he orchestrated a 3-on-1 beatdown on The Lunatic Fringe, culminating in a Skull-Crushing Finale. Will this be Ambrose’s fate this Sunday?
Prediction: The Miz
