Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins make Lumberjack match entertaining

Published Add your comment

Over the years, Lumberjack matches have often been criticised for not being as entertaining as matches with other stipulations, the one which Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins faced each other at SummerSlam on Sunday night however, proved very differently.

It was by far one of the best Lumberjack matches there has been in recent years, with the wrestlers on the WWE roster who surrounded the ring having their work cut out.

With this stipulation, the matches tend to be very repetitive, but whether it was the two former members of The Shield or the hype of the occasion, this one was extremely entertaining.

What happened?

The match could have gone on a lot longer, and began with the usual process of superstars lining the edge of the ring to throw Ambrose or Rollins back in when necessary.

This match up however, got a little more out of hand than the regular Lumberjack scenario which sees both wrestlers have a limited amount of space to use.

After brawling back and forth, Ambrose performed a suicide dive onto several of the Lumberjacks and proceeded to jump onto the announce table, over the barrier and onto Rollins who was in the crowd.

Those who were in attendance close by at the Staples Center in Los Angeles definitely got their money's worth as they two emerging stars fought there way through the crowd for a good segment of the match.

The Lumberjacks at this point looked on a bit hopeless from ringside. But when Rollins attempted to return to the ring, several of them picked him up in an Adam Rose-esque manner and carried him back towards it, only to be knocked down by Ambrose who was waiting on the top rope.

Fight breaks out

Add to this match an interruption made by Kane and a huge brawl breaking out between the Lumberjacks and you can see why this was an enthralling encounter.

Eventually left in the ring was Ambrose, Erik Rowan and Luke Harper of the Wyatt family. Ambrose went to send them out but then faced Rollins who used his Money in the Bank briefcase to hit Ambrose with a shot to the face and eventually pin him to win.
