Kevin Owens insists the historical significance of the Intercontinental Title begins and ends with his current championship reign. Dean Ambrose will look to make Owens’ reign just that — history — when he challenges him for the title at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs.
The Lunatic Fringe earned the opportunity at WWE TLC by defeating Tyler Breeze and four-time Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler in an action-packed No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match on the Thanksgiving edition of SmackDown. Just days before that, Ambrose topped Owens, too, defeating the self-proclaimed prizefighter in the semifinal round of the WWE World Heavyweight Title Tournament at Survivor Series.
Will the result be the same at WWE TLC, when Owens’ title is at stake? KO has previously suggested that while Ambrose’s crazed persona is nothing more than a façade, his own body of work is replete with authentic and unhinged acts of lunacy. Yet, Ambrose — an unpredictable, unrelenting tornado of punches and kicks inside the ring — has proven he will not shy away from extreme measures when he deems them necessary.
Both Superstars are likely to be bruised and battered following their showdown at WWE TLC, but which one will leave Boston’s TD Garden with the Intercontinental Title?
