This blog predates Jack Swagger's gimmick shift by a year. I named it after Hulk Hogan's entrance theme.

Real American Wrestleblog Live Reactions – Extreme Rules 2015 – Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper in a “Chicago Street Fight”

leave a comment »

A lot of cheap pops to start the night, the announce team putting over Chicago and Eden overemphasizing Chicago while announcing the stipulation.

Ambrose takes the fight to Harper out on the floor before they go back into the ring and get the match “officially” started.  Ambrose Suicide Dive out to the floor and then throws Harper into the stairs to take the early advantage.  Ambrose has a Kendo Stick and Harper has a chair. Somehow the kendo stick wins and Ambrose gets in several shots.  Ambrose sits in the chair and taunts Harper as he gets back up.  Harper ends up slamming Ambrose onto the chair with a Suplex and now Harper works Ambrose over with the Kendo Stick.  Hard hitting, slow deliberate pace to start the match and Harper jams the point of the kendo stick into Ambrose’s head.  I’m sure it hurts, but doesn’t look like much.  Harper does a modified Snake Eyes, ramming Ambrose like a dart into a chair propped up in the corner.  That one might leave a mark.  Harper gets in a few more shots with the kendo stick before Ambrose turns the tide and Scoop Slams Harper onto a chair.  Fight goes to the corner where Ambrose hits a textbook Tornado DDT with a very nice snap to it.  Trade punches and Ambrose bounces off the ropes and runs into a kick to the gut.  Ambrose quickly retakes the advantage though and hits the Flying Elbow Drop to a standing opponent for a near fall.  Harper reverses some of Ambrose’s signature moves and gets thrown outside.  Hugely awesome spot as Harper blocks a Suicide Dive from Ambrose from the ring to the floor and shoves him back against the ring apron and Ambrose bounces back and hits his signature Rebound Clothlesine, using the ring apron instead of the ropes.  Ambrose uses the Kendo Stick like a baseball bat and chases Harper to the back, hits him with some more foreign objects and Harper bails into somebody’s SUV.  Ambrose jumps in through the window and Harper peels out of the arena.

Is that the end of the match?  The crowd is upset.  There are some CM Punk chants.  I assume they’ll come back at some point, but it appears the show is going on without them.  In the back, HHH orders Kane to go find Ambrose and Harper and bring them back.  Rollins interrupts and the Kane vs. Rollins verbal jabbing continues.  Kane assures them that he will do what is best for business and goes to presumably track down Harper and Ambrose.
