The new slogan going around WWE should be “Fight, Champion, Fight.”
In the opening segment of “Raw,” Dean Ambrose announced that he wanted to have an altercation with Brock Lesnar that evening. However, Stephanie McMahon responded, instead ordering “The Lunatic Fringe” to defend his title in a Fatal 5-Way match against Kevin Owens, Stardust, Tyler Breeze and Dolph Ziggler.
Owens’ first championship reign came when he defeated Ryback at “Night of Champions” on September 20, 2015. He would hold the title for two months, before dropping it to Ambrose at the “TLC” pay-per-view on December 13.
In the backstage segment that followed the match, Ziggler challenged Owens’ to a title match at “Fast Lane.” Nothing has materialized about that to this point.
I have to admit that I fist pumped on my couch when this happened. It was completely unexpected, but completely necessary. If Ambrose is going to be in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture going forward, having the Intercontinental Championship is a complete waist of that title. Owens is one of the best wrestlers in the company, and deserves to be a champion. FIGHT OWENS FIGHT!!!
