WWE has announced that Dean Ambrose will be opening RAW tonight. Tonight’s show is live from Nashville, Tennessee, and it appears that The Lunatic Fringe has some things to get off his chest. The move is curious timing as Ambrose’s real-life wife Renee Young recently had two of her shows canceled (Talking Smack and Unfiltered), leading some to speculate her romance with the former Shield member may have been a cause for her shows being taken off WWE Network. Could the WWE be trying to get fans to tune in to see if Ambrose will comment upon his wife’s demotion back to “welcoming her guest at this time”?
Really disappointed about #TalkingSmack. We tried to make that show great. Guess I'll go back to welcoming my guest at this time.

Regardless of whether or not Dean Ambrose addresses Renee Young’s situation, this should be an important segment in moving along the Seth Rollins storyline. After last week’s run-in with his former Shield brother-in-arms, will Ambrose continue to put distance between himself and the Kingslayer, or will he have a change of heart? Will the two mend fences and join up against a common enemy (The Miz and his Miztourage) or will we see a renewed Ambrose/Rollins rivalry, only with a flipped heel/face alignment?
Tune into RAW tonight to find out.
