#MustWatchMonday: The Road To SummerSlam Continues

We've only got seven days left until the hottest viewing party of the (American) summer, and we're kicking off the week with a sleeper hit from last year's event.

When Dean Ambrose announced onscreen that he was challenging Seth Rollins to a Lumberjack match, around half of the IWC let out a collective groan. Lumberjack matches weren't the hottest match type to choose for such a heated rivalry.

But the reason why only half of the IWC groaned was because the other half held out hope. It was, after all, Dean and Seth, two of the best wrestlers currently in the WWE. If anyone could make such a lukewarm stipulation work, it would be the two of them.

And make it work, they did. They rewrote the long-standing rules of the Lumberjack match, forcing a massive brawl on the outside and into the crowd, until Rollins eventually beat Ambrose by hitting him with the briefcase.
