Dean Ambrose and Crumbling Cinder Blocks

The main event on RAW last night was a wild mess just like you would expect from Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.  Both guys worked hard as always and it was one heck of an entertaining match.  One thing that hampered the match though was those ridiculous crumbling cinder blocks at the end of it.

I am a big fan of keeping it simple and that is especially true when it comes to weapons.  I mean I'll take a steel chair any day over something like that stupid butcher knife that Samoa Joe carried around during his Nation of Violence days or whatever.

The worst part is that the stupid crumbling cinder blocks didn't even make their debut last night.  I recall someone hitting Rey Mysterio in the knee with one of those things.  It was ridiculous then and it was no better last night.  I just do not care for completely ridiculous weapons like that.  I mean even in wrestling logic it's too big of a stretch to believe that a Curb Stomp into cinder blocks is going to reduce the blocks to powder.  They could have accomplished the same thing with some chair shots or whatever.  I don't know, it just bothers me. 

Now what was awesome about last night is this update from WWE.com today.
“At the time of bringing him backstage, he was responsive and was refusing transport to a local medical facility for further evaluation,” said Amann. “He had removed the straps and surgical collar, said he refused to go and we haven’t seen him since.”
That's exactly what the "Lunatic Fringe" would do. Perfect way to continue to create the aura around Dean Ambrose. It's almost like as dumb as crumbling cinder blocks is, this was just as brilliant.
