The feud between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose is on the brink of fizzling out.
To the surprise of many Ambrose did not show up at Survivor Series on Sunday night to mess with Rollins. This week on Raw, Rollins came down to the ring and was almost offended by his former friend's inaction.
Rollins came to the Staples Center looking for the fight and instead got dissed again by Ambrose.

The call-out from Rollins only got him another cryptic video message. Recording live from somewhere in the Staples Center, Ambrose poked at Rollins, brought up Roman Reigns in a weird way and then poked at his former Shield teammate again.
Rollins was so bent out of shape, he beat-up a random security guy while on the hunt for Ambrose.
A few segments later, Ambrose popped up on video screen of Charly Caruso and things just kept flying off the rails.

Ambrose told Rollins to meet him at the location where The Shield used to hang out at the Staples Center.
What did Rollins find when he went to Ambrose’s secret hideout?

Yup, his own catchphrase painted on the doors.
There is a school of thought, that Rollins and Ambrose should be kept apart until their scheduled match next month at TLC. Right now whatever Rollins, Ambrose and WWE are doing, this feud is simply not working.
The Rollins-Ambrose/ Shield break-up storyline is getting dangerously close to jumping the shark.
How can WWE save the feud between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose?
Update: Rollins finally found Ambrose after the Kingslayer said he was leaving for a flight and then attacked The Lunatic Fringe during the main event of segment of Raw. The IC champion briefly got his TLC opponent before Ambrose hit Rollins with a low blow and ended the night standing tall.

With a little under a month to go until they meet at TLC, I want to like this Rollins vs. Ambrose feud more than I currently do. Maybe the main event segment of Raw is where WWE rights the ship?
