Mini Biography: Dean Ambrose started his career back in 2004 under the name of Jon Moxley. Earning high praise from independent companies around the world, he became a household name for the hardcore, holding championship gold in companies such as Combat Zone Wrestling. With his name capturing the attention of wrestling fans across the globe, Jon soon earned a developmental contract with the WWE. He then took on the name of Dean Ambrose and began the process of cementing his name in stone. Feuding with William Regal and Seth Rollins most notably on NXT, Ambrose went on to make his much anticipated main roster debut at Survivor Series 2012, coming in alongside Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns to make a massive impact in the main event, aiding CM Punk in retaining his WWE Championship. The Shield have torn an unstoppable path through the WWE and at Extreme Rules 2013, Dean laid claim to his first taste of WWE gold, capturing the United States Championship. Described by WWE as "Fearless, wild and always unpredictable" as well as a "world class competitor and infamous troublemaker" - Dean Ambrose is the rising star to watch!

On the lead in to Wrestlemania once again The Shield proves a force to be reckoned with as they’re recognized again for their impact on the wrestling world, coming in at #1 on ESPN’s wrestling Power Rankings. Above the stories of The Undertaker, Cena and The Rock. That’s saying something!

The Bleacher Report have up an excellent article on The Shield and what many of us hope for them at Wrestlemania. Will they be another show stealer? Money’s definitely on it!

Against Big Show, Randy Orton and Sheamus, The Shield will add its name to the list of WrestleMania’s greatest performers.

Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose have produced instant classics every time out. The increasing anger and frustration they have stirred up with the fans, the star power of their opponents and the grandeur of WrestleMania will help create their best work to date.

Bringing in those three men from NXT as The Shield to thwart Ryback’s WWE title at Survivor Series 2012 has proven to be one of WWE’s best decisions in recent years.

The move has let three little-known guys get the benefit of rumbling momentum right away. WWE gave them distinct ring gear, an interesting visual style to their promos and a compelling narrative.

Now, it’s time for The Shield to show what it can do in the hot spotlight that is WrestleMania. It’s time for The Shield’s WrestleMania moment.

Ambrose fueded through the indies with Jimmy Jacobs in promotions such as Dragon Gate USA and Insanity Pro Wrestling. As his one time arch nemesis, Jimmy spoke recently with and weighed in on the hottest topic in wrestling right now!

A veteran of Ring of Honor and the independent scene, Jimmy Jacobs has worked with members of WWE’s The Shield as partner and competitor. What does he have to say about them?

Yesterday at National Pro Wrestling Day (NPWD), I had the pleasure to watch four veterans of independent wrestling work the Ring of Honor (ROH) match when the SCUM team of Steve Corino and Jimmy Jacobs faced the ROH tag team champions, The Briscoes.

Seeing Jacobs in action, it struck me that he has history with two-thirds of one of we smark’s favorite things in WWE right now, The Shield. He was stable mates with Seth Rollins (back when he was known as Tyler Black) in the Age of the Fall faction in ROH. And he had a highly entertaining feud with Dean Ambrose (then known as Jon Moxley) in the early days of Dragon Gate USA.

A little googling around the internet wrestling community (IWC) proves I was far from the first to make the connection. In fact, PWTorch columnists Pat MacNeil and Sean Radican just spoke to him about it last week on their Livecast podcast.

Who’s next? Next Jordan? Next Gretzky? Name a sport, and for every prospect that shows flashes of promise, fans and media alike compare them to the greatest to have ever played, hoping they’ll be the next ones to take their sport to new heights.

Wrestling fans debate similar topics, wondering when the next wave of special superstars will come to push (and powerbomb) WWE forward, ushering in an era of heated rivalries between talented athletes in the ring and on the mike.

CM Punk and John Cena will face off next week to determine who gets The Rock at Wrestlemania.
Years from now, I say Elimination Chamber 2013 won’t be remembered for the surprise win of Jack Swagger or the scary dominance of Mark Henry, but as the show in which The Shield showed the wrestling world that they are not only who’s next, they’re the hottest three performers in the industry right now.

Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns proved that they can do more than hang with three of WWE’s most popular stars (John Cena, Sheamus and Ryback) — they completely stole the show at Sunday night’s pay-per-view, outperforming main eventers The Rock and CM Punk, while showcasing a variety of double- and triple-team moves unseen in recent memory.

Top it off with a shocking ending that saw Reigns obliterate Sheamus through the barricade, then spear Ryback in the middle of a Shell Shock for the win, and you had a night that will be looked back on as the match when The Shield proved they were here to dominate the top of the card for years to come.

After the reveal on Monday Night RAW that the Shield has in fact worked for Paul Heyman posed a few questions that are no doubt on everyone’s mind. Who leaked the footage and does this mean all of the attacks were done for Paul and then Champion CM Punk.

Mr. McMahon promised evidence linking Paul Heyman to The Shield last night on Raw Roulette, and true to form, The Chairman delivered.

Moments before he was attacked by Brock Lesnar, McMahon produced the proverbial smoking gun in the form of candid-style footage that confirmed collusion between the mad scientist and not only The Shield, but also former referee Brad Maddox. In the footage — apparently filmed by Maddox’s trusted cameraman, Carson —Heyman revealed, in no uncertain terms, that he “plucked [Maddox] from obscurity” and installed him as the referee for Punk’s Hell in a Cell WWE Title Match against Ryback (which Maddox would later infamously derail by costing Ryback the match). Heyman later reveals that he’s got The Shield in his pocket as well.

CM Punk’s current mentor and renowned evil genius Paul Heyman stirred up a name from Dean’s past this week for an exclusive interview with his website, that being Gabe Sapolsky, the founder and manager of Dragon Gate USA & Evolve, two promotions Dean worked extensively for over 2010/2011. Here’s what he had to say!

What was it like to work with Dean Ambrose before he exploded on the WWE at Survivor Series? The man who gave Ambrose his very first big break discusses the early years of WWE’s newest superstar!

I’ll never forget the very first moment I worked with the man now known as Dean Ambrose. There was only one other time I experienced anything like it in my 10 year booking career and that was with Paul Heyman’s current top hustler, CM Punk.

We were fortunate to have Ambrose, then known as Jon Moxley, as a building block of my Dragon Gate USA and EVOLVE promotions for almost two years. I have to admit, I was in love with him as a talent and fascinated by him as a person. We had an instant creative chemistry. It paid off with Ambrose leading Kamikaze USA of Dragon Gate standouts YAMATO, Akira Tozawa and Shingo as well as being in a violent feud against Jimmy Jacobs. The bloodbath I Quit Match against Jacobs at DGUSA Bushido: Code Of The Warrior 2010 is an ageless classic.

He’s been up and down and all over the PWI 500 since his debut into it’s ranks in 2006 at #447. So where’d he end up ranking this year? At a quite baffling #253! Then again, when a man has been kept off of TV as much as he has, I suppose it’s to be expected. It’s quite a drop from last years #102 but we have every faith that in the not too distant future, he’ll be seeing off the current top rankings with ease. Not too shabby!

With speculation running rife over when Dean’s actually going to make his debut on WWE Programming outside of endless Dark Matches, us fans are keeping the faith and the Bleacher Report have written this interesting article on how and why he could be brought in to things now on RAW. Of course, we’d all love to see this happen. But would WWE ever be smart enough? Head on over to read.
