For the second time in as many weeks, Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose for the WWE world heavyweight championship headlined a major WWE show. The first was Elimination Chamber, where Dean won by disqualification, which meant Seth kept his title. Tonight, they squared off at Money in the Bank pay-per-view (PPV) at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
This time it was a ladder match.
As such, they used many a foreign object without fear of repercussion. The focus of the majority of the match, however, was Ambrose suffering an early injury to his knee and Rollins targeting it the rest of the way. The idea, of course, is that it would be that much more difficult for Ambrose to climb a ladder to take the title with a bum knee.
Late, Rollins took a huge back body drop through a ladder bridged from the ring to the announce desk. That left Ambrose to pull himself up the ladder but, again, his knee was faulty and it gave an actual reason for his slowed pace. That meant Rollins caught him and the battle continued back out to the Spanish announce desk, where Rollins took a Dirty Deeds.
And the table didn't break!
That again left Ambrose to climb the ladder and again he was too slow, this time taking a shot in the bad knee with a monitor when Rollins rushed in to save his title. He hit a Pedigree to finally give himself a chance, but Ambrose just would not quit.
Until, of course, there was no choice after Rollins viciously launched him into the barricade multiple times. This after throwing his head against a ladder and the aforementioned Pedigree. Then, to put an exclamation point on it, Rollins hit a sit out powerbomb onto a number of chairs set up on top of a ladder. Then he buried Ambrose underneath it all to keep him down.
As Rollins climbed to grab the title, Ambrose climbed with him. They both reached it at the same time and had their hands on it as it was unlatched. When they hit the mat, Rollins ripped it away for himself and was declared the winner.
