The Tag Team Division Brawls

Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins’ unlikely reunion and Raw Tag Team Title run has held the rest of the division at bay for weeks, but in a confrontation between champions and challengers, Cesaro & Sheamus declared the “nostalgia ride” will only last until the two “brothers” remember they can’t stand each other. Add Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson into the mix and toss ‘em in a Triple Threat, and it turns out “The Bar” might be right to think the champs aren’t as bulletproof as they seem.
Granted, The Architect and The Lunatic Fringe don’t seem to hate each other anymore — the only thing that really sets Ambrose off is being called a nerd — but Ambrose & Rollins made their first significant mistake as a team all the same.

After suffering a Magic Killer and “The Bar’s” spin on a 3D, The Kingslayer finally reached Ambrose, and the champions took everyone out with a pair of synchronized suicide dives. But Sheamus sneakily tagged himself in right before The Lunatic Fringe hit Dirty Deeds on Anderson, tossed Ambrose from the ring and stole the pinfall. Score one for “The Bar,” but they’ll likely need a little more than opportune timing to regain the Raw Tag Team Championship come Sunday.

The Tag Team Division Brawls
It’s every tag team for themselves on Team Red. A week after Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson threw down against Cesaro & Sheamus, who are next in line for Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins’ Raw Tag Team Titles, a match was sanctioned between “The Bar” and the good brothers, only it never quite got off the ground after Cesaro & Sheamus got into it with the champs at the commentary table. Gallows & Anderson were quick to join the scuffle, which led to a massive three-way brawl among the teams.

Ambrose & Rollins were game for a match against both tandems, but Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, looking to keep his champions in one piece as WWE No Mercy approaches, offered a compromise instead: Find another team to join them, and they would get to tee off on Cesaro, Sheamus, Gallows and Anderson all they wanted in an Eight-Man Tag Team Match.

Seth Rollins/Dean Ambrose & The Hardys def. Cesaro/Sheamus & Gallows/Anderson
Cesaro & Sheamus predicted that, when it came down to it, Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins would turn on each other and cost themselves the Raw Tag Team Titles, but that day didn’t come on Raw. In fact, “The Bar” ironically couldn’t keep their own impromptu alliance together for Team Red’s main-event, an Eight-Man Tag that teamed them, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson against Ambrose, Rollins & The Hardy Boyz.

True, the former champs were initially a well-oiled machine alongside the good brothers, despite fighting them for two straight weeks. They even managed to cut Ambrose off from his allies for almost the entire match. But once Seth Rollins tagged in, all bets were off: The Kingslayer singlehandedly took the fight to both Gallows & Anderson, and a pair of Twists of Fate to The Suntan Biker Man were enough to prompt “The Bar” to call it a day and make their exit. With Anderson left alone in the ring, a unified one-two of Rollins’ ripcord knee and Ambrose’s Dirty Deeds spelled the end of the match, a display of perfect teamwork that nonetheless didn’t seem to shake “The Bar’s” confidence as their title match nears… at least, not yet.

Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose on Commentary
While Sheamus & Cesaro prepared to take on Heath Slater and Rhyno, Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose happily took a spot at the commentary table to survey the ongoing match and discuss their newfound unity. Seth confidently declared that he has no doubts, or uneasy feelings towards the partnership. Ambrose states that he has no ill feelings towards Seth for his past betrayal by simply noting “these things happen.” Seth chuckles and says his partner is a forgiving guy. The two agree that though they have been “at war” in the past, they are stronger and the best when they are together. They note that Sheamus and Cesaro took some time to get along and only became the 2nd or third best tag team out there.

Ambrose confidently proclaims, “the moment we signed on the doted line, those guys were screwed.” The two finally say “this is the bar now.” As Seth stands up and holds his title proudly in the air and their taunt their upcoming No Mercy opponents following the match.

Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose def. Anderson & Gallows
Cesaro & Sheamus showed they’re not slowing down anytime soon with their win over Heath Slater & Rhyno, but Raw Tag Team Champions Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins are right there with them. The champs defeated Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, a move that won’t exactly earn them good-brother status but definitely does wonders for their momentum as their showdown with “The Bar” looms large in the distance.

They might need it, too: Cesaro & Sheamus jaw-jacked with Gallows & Anderson before the match and lurked, stone-faced at ringside for the entire bout … at least until they attempted to interfere.
Rollins used Anderson as a human projectile to thwart the intrusion, rolling his foe up for the win moments later. And then Cesaro & Sheamus surprised everyone by going after the good brothers instead of the champions, getting the better of a brief, but intense fight. Even when their plans go awry, they still set the bar, and might just dictate the pace as well.

Cesaro def. Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins has been jaw-jacking with The Usos all weekend, but he and Dean Ambrose might have a far more present danger to worry about, as The Kingslayer fell to Cesaro in a singles match that pitted one-half of the Raw Tag Team Champions against one-half of the tandem they defeated to win the titles. And it’s all because of the other half of that tandem, as Sheamus forced Rollins to take his eye off the ball by swiping at the ropes while The Architect was preparing to fly. While Ambrose scrapped with The Celtic Warrior on the outside, Cesaro uncorked a home-run uppercut to Rollins that put him down for three. The only person who was happier than Cesaro about the win was Sheamus, who challenged Ambrose to a match on the spot.

Dean Ambrose def. Sheamus
It’s a split series for the current and former Raw Tag Team Champions, as Dean Ambrose knocked off Sheamus just moments after The Alabaster Gladiator’s impromptu challenge to The Lunatic Fringe. The Celctic Warrior was riding high after Cesaro scored a win over Seth Rollins, and The Lunatic Fringe quickly showed his foe that his eyes were bigger than his stomach. Through a series of impressive reversals (that tornado DDT!), some gritty perseverance through a banged-up back and an assist from Rollins — who bailed his partner out of White Noise behind the ref’s back — Ambrose planted Sheamus with Dirty Deeds for the 1-2-3.

WWE Superstars Attend the WWE 2K18 Kickoff Party During SummerSlam Weekend
On Friday night during the WWE 2K18 SummerSlam Kickoff Party, a heated on-stage interview featuring Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus and their imminent pay-per-view opponents, Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose, suddenly descended into all-out bedlam.
As a sea of security guards swarmed between them, the two tandems fought to try and reach each other amidst a barrage of flying chairs and water bottles.

In a WWE.com exclusive video, not only did Cathy Kelley shed additional light on the volatile incident that took place during the WWE 2K18 event, but she soon found herself in the middle of a second altercation between the two teams during her report.

The Real-Life Diet of Seth Rollins, Wrestling Star and CrossFit Jesus
Writer Credit: Mick Rouse
Site Credit: gq.com | View Original Article

Professional athletes don’t get to the top by accident. It takes superhuman levels of time, dedication, and focus—and that includes paying attention to what they put in their bellies. In this series, GQ takes a look at what fit people in different fields eat on a daily basis to perform at their best. Here’s a look at the daily diet of WWE star Seth Rollins.

For years, wrestling fans were hyping up Seth Rollins as one of WWE’s brightest young stars. Nowadays, he’s a certifiable main eventer and a video game cover star, to boot. And as one of the flag bearers ushering in a new generation of professional wrestling, he knows a thing or two about what it takes to both look and perform well. (He’s not known as CrossFit Jesus for nothing.) Ever wonder what it really takes to achieve videogame abs or how much food you need to eat in order to step between the ropes? We caught up with the WWE’s resident kingslayer ahead of SummerSlam to answer all those questions and more.

GQ: You were recently announced as the cover star to this year’s WWE 2K18 video game, and the Internet has had a lot of fun talking about how realistic your character in the game looks, specifically the care for detail when it came to your abs. So let me ask you: are abs made in the kitchen or in the gym?

Seth Rollins: I think it’s a bit of both, you know? Obviously, you can be skinny and have some abdominal definition, but for them to really pop, if you will, you’re going to have to put in some time. You’re going to have to do some core exercises and lift some weights, some resistance. Otherwise you’re not going to build any muscle in that area, which is what’s going to help you be able to show them off a little bit more.

Seth Rollins: I think it’s a bit of both, you know? Obviously, you can be skinny and have some abdominal definition, but for them to really pop, if you will, you’re going to have to put in some time. You’re going to have to do some core exercises and lift some weights, some resistance. Otherwise you’re not going to build any muscle in that area, which is what’s going to help you be able to show them off a little bit more.

It’s no secret at this point that the WWE maintains one of the crazier schedules in sports and entertainment. You guys are going pretty much non-stop, all day long doing media, working out, driving to shows, putting on said shows. So what does an average day look like for you when it comes to eating?

It sort of depends on if I’m home or away, but when I’m on the road, generally I like to find a good, local breakfast restaurant. That’s my first go-to in the morning. It’s one of the ways I can feel like I’m doing something with my time other than just working. Generally I have some sort of balanced meal. Three to five eggs for me is good. Whole eggs. I’m not an egg whites guy. I can’t deal with egg whites. I need the flavor of the yolk, and I like the fat of it, as well. So I’ll have that and some sort of potato. If I’m not feeling potatoes and I’m feeling extra spicy, I’ll throw in a pancake or something like that. But they key is just one, for a little bit of carbs to help balance out the diet. If you order three or more pancakes and throw them in my face, I’m going to eat them all. And then I’ll have a coffee, too. Usually from there I’ll go to the gym.

Do you do anything special for a pre-workout, or is your breakfast essentially your pre-workout?

If I’ve had coffee in the morning, I won’t mess with a pre-workout [supplement] because I don’t want to overload on caffeine. I like the caffeine that I do take to be effective and useful, so instead of a pre-workout I’ll just kind of ride the morning caffeine wave into the gym. During the workout it’s mostly just water that I’m drinking. If I’m not feeling hydrated, sometimes I’ll take a little electrolyte supplement that I can just put in my water to help me absorb and hydrate a little better.

Like one of those tablets that just dissolves right into your water?

Yeah, like a Nuun tablet. Those are really effective as far as helping me absorb a good ratio of potassium and sodium and magnesium. Electrolytes without the added sugar of a sports drink.

What about post-workout? What is your go-to after you’ve finished working out?

Afterwards I’ll have a shake, which is usually a pretty heavy shake as far as carbohydrates and protein are concerned. Then I’ll go find some more food. Lately I’ve been—for the first time in my career, actually—traveling with food on the road. One of the things that I wanted to do with my diet in the last few months was create some more consistency. Sometimes when you’re on the road—you mentioned our schedule. Between media, workouts, driving, the shows themselves, there’s a lot of room for, I guess, diversity in terms of what we’re eating and when we’re eating depending on what town, or even what country, we’re in. There are all sorts of stuff as far as how we get our food. So for me, I started traveling with meals in the last month or so, really trying to create some consistency in my diet. It’s been a little bit of a hassle, but it’s also been useful and effective. I feel, particularly in my macro counts, just a consistency and a good balance. Plus this way I always have food on me, as opposed to having to go out and try to find stuff. I’ve been packing a lot of frozen meals into a very large Yeti cooler over the course of my travels recently.

What type of frozen meals are you typically bringing along with you? Do they follow any sort of dietary restrictions?

I like fats. I think fat is important. I think there is a reason we have it. Obviously it’s part of our dietary makeup, so I don’t avoid it. I think a lot of people fall into the diet trap of starving themselves or eating things that don’t taste good for the sake of getting in better shape or having a better physique. I think there has to balance there. I don’t avoid carbs. I don’t avoid protein. I think it’s just, again, about balance and finding what works for you and your body. For me, having a higher protein, higher carbohydrate, and middle-of-the-road fat count usually gets the job done as far as my energy needs and for my physique.

For your main meals, what type of fats—I’m guessing we would classify them as “healthy” fats—do you prefer?

I’m a big avocado brother. I love the avocado. So if I can get some avocado in a meal, that’s a big win. Otherwise I try to find a good, solid, fattier piece of meat. It doesn’t have to be crazy. I don’t need to go find olive oils or coconut oils—which are fine—or something like that to get the fat. I find that if you, for example, use a chicken thigh as opposed to a chicken breast, you’re going to be able to get a more flavorful chicken. You’re still getting your protein in and, at the same time, you’re going to be able to get a little bit more fat in there, which is going to help fill you up and give you a little more energy throughout the day.

One thing I wanted to ask you about: You have your own wrestling school now, the Black and Brave Wrestling Academy. I was curious how much focus you put on nutrition for the people who attend your school when they’re first coming in?

That’s one of the main questions I get from my students when they first come in. Now, mind you, these are mostly young kids—18, 19, 20 years old. A lot of them, to be fair, have not participated in athletics before. They’re just wrestling fans that want to give it a shot and see what it’s all about. But they usually come in undersized. And again, they’re still young kids, so they’ve got a lot of size to put on. They’re also usually poor kids that are just trying to make ends meet. They don’t come in with a bunch of money that makes it easy for them to find good foods all the time. So my general advice to them is to eat a lot. They think they know what eating a lot is, you know? And then they’re like, “Why can’t I gain weight?” Well, chances are you’re not eating nearly as much as you think you are. What I always tell them to do is track how much they actually eat for about a week and just see how the calories lay out. Nine out of 10 times when they do that, they’ll find that they’re not eating nearly as much as they thought they were. So my first bit of advice is to just max yourself with food because you need the sustenance as a kid. Being as young as they are, they’ve got a metabolism that’s probably pretty high and the workload that they’re putting themselves through at my academy—they’re doing a lot of work. Far more work then they’ve probably ever done in their lives over the course of three months. So I just tell them to eat and eat and eat until they can’t eat anymore. For someone who is already in good shape or has the size already, then I can work from there to help mold them into what they want to look like. But, for the most part, the guys just don’t eat enough and they need the sustenance if they want to grow.

Spitball a number to me for an average kid who you see come in. How many calories are they usually in taking versus how many they really need to be?

I would say they’re probably eating half of what they need to be eating. They’re probably putting in 2,000 to 2,500 calories, which is pretty normal. If they’re really trying to gain size, they could probably go up to 4,000 calories. Which sounds insane, but if you really want to gain weight and put size on, that’s really the only way to do it. Calories in versus calories out.

Part of the problem, too, is with my program, what they’re doing in the ring and what they’re required to do in the gym, they’re burning a lot of calories. They’re burning a lot more than what they’re used to.

You and I have spoken about this in the past, but you’re huge into CrossFit. Because you’re putting yourself through pretty demanding, high-intensity workouts on top of everything else you do, I’m sure you’re putting an even bigger emphasis on making sure you’re getting calories in.

Yeah, I feel like it’s a never-ending process of tearing yourself down and building yourself back up. I sort of see fitness in that sort of way, making little strides along the way. I think people are impatient with their fitness and their bodies. They’ve got to understand that it takes years and years to get yourself to where you want to be. It’s not an overnight thing. There’s no quick fix. It’s just a matter of being disciplined and working hard. For me, since I found CrossFit seven years ago, my metabolic output has been a lot more than when I was not doing CrossFit. I’m burning more calories, so I need to eat a little bit more. Which is good for me. It lets me play around with my diet a little. That way I can enjoy my food as opposed to hating what I eat all the time.

SummerSlam is Sunday in Brooklyn, and along with WrestleMania, that show has become a sort of milestone on the WWE calendar. Do you allow yourself to have a celebratory meal to mark the occasion after such a big show?

Not necessarily, but I’m also not one to shy away from celebrating with food. I’m not somebody who has to discipline themselves too much, unless I’ve really gone off the rails for weeks at a time. If there’s a special occasion, a birthday, an outing with friends, or even just a food I really want to try—like, if I’m in New York and there’s something on the news saying you’ve got to go try this crazy ice cream cookie doughnut sandwich or something, I’m not shy about having that. Or a cheat meal, or whatever you want to call it. I just think that, again, comes back to having a good relationship with food. Not having it be such a strict thing all the time where you’re constantly fighting against what you’re eating to get to a point where you’re like, “Now I get my cheat meal! Now I get to reward myself!” I try not to think about food that way. I enjoy eating. I enjoy the process of it, and I don’t want it to become something that I dislike, you know?

It doesn’t need to become another job for you.

Exactly.

Seth Rollins Reveals his dream match
Writer Credit: Vineet Ramakrishnan
Source Credit: Times of India

Last year at WWE SummerSlam, Seth Rollins found himself at the cusp of history as he was in the main event to determine the inaugural WWE Universal Champion against Finn Balor, and even though the Architect came up short against the then hot favorite Balor. This year, Rollins may not be main eventing a stacked card, but he still has the chance to walk away with gold with his former Shield partner Dean Ambrose as they will vie for the RAW Tag Team Championships going up again the Champions – Shemus and Cesaro.
Ahead of the mega-event, Rollins, in a media interaction, talks about his childhood SummerSlam memories, his dream match and how the injury layoff helped him refocus.

What are your childhood SummerSlam memories?

Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose def. The Hardys
The band is back together, and the dream matches have already begun. Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins opened their unlikely Raw Tag Team Title reign by declaring the evening to be a “party” and inviting any team in the locker room to step to them, seemingly expecting Cesaro & Sheamus to come looking for a rematch. Instead, they got a gentleman’s challenge from The Hardy Boyz, and it was exactly as epic as you might have imagined. (Cesaro & Sheamus scouted from the locker room.)

The Most Exhilarating Tag Team In History didn’t just hang with the younger tandem, they came awfully close to defeating the new champions after Matt Hardy hit The Lunatic Fringe with the Twist of Fate to tee him up for Jeff Hardy’s Swanton Bomb. However, Rollins superkicked Matt right after Jeff tagged in, and Ambrose got his knees up to block the Swanton, leaving The Charismatic Enigma alone to suffer the one-two combo of Rollins’ ripcord knee and a match-ending Dirty Deeds.

Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose def. Sheamus & Cesaro (For the Tag Team Titles)
With The Lunatic Fringe briefly kayoed, Sheamus metaphorically tore Rollins to pieces, while Cesaro leapt over the outside barricade and literally tore apart a beach ball that had been making its way through the capacity crowd. Even though Ambrose roused to life and helped get his team back in the match, “The Bar” held a narrow advantage by the skin of their fingertips. Even as Ambrose & Rollins got more and more innovative, the titles remained just beyond their reach, usually because either Cesaro or Sheamus saved the other from disaster. (The King of Swing had the biggest save of all, bailing Sheamus out of a potential double powerbomb.) Now, it was Ambrose who found himself isolated and trapped in Cesaro’s Sharpshooter after Sheamus flattened Rollins with a rolling senton to the outside. The champs took full advantage of the two-on-one, hitting a top-rope clothesline-powerbomb combo and landing a cheap shot after a brief distraction of the referee.

This wasn’t exactly overwhelming to The Lunatic Fringe, who all but dared the champions to hit him with their best shot. So, they did, setting him up for a double-team White Noise variation. But the move never hit home. Rollins repaid Ambrose’s earlier assault and rose to life, connecting with a springboard hurricanrana that hurled Cesaro into his partner, then superkicking both champs and blasting the legal man Sheamus with his ripcord knee to the face. Ambrose provided the finishing touch to The Alabaster Gladiator, hitting Dirty Deeds to break “The Bar” and win the Raw Tag Team Titles.
Given that the new titleholders celebrated their win with the old-school Shield fist bump, allow us to sum it up in the only way that feels appropriate: “November, Echo, Whiskey, Charlie, Hotel, Alpha, Mike, Papa, Sierra.”
