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!

AJ Styles talks a big game, but the new WWE World Champion may have talked himself into a major corner when he battles both Dean Ambrose and John Cena in a Triple Threat Match at WWE No Mercy.

On his first SmackDown LIVE after low-blowing Dean Ambrose out of the WWE World Title, The Phenomenal One proclaimed that, since he’d made good on his promise to become champion, his word was now infallible and that everything he says from here on out should be taken as fact. So, for instance, if he was to claim that he could beat The Lunatic Fringe and John Cena, whom he knocked off at SummerSlam, in the same match, the WWE Universe would just have to take his word for it.

Luckily, SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon was happy to arrange just such a test for Styles, putting Ambrose’s guaranteed one-on-one rematch on the shelf (he’ll get it at a later date, according to Shane) in favor of a Triple Threat Match between Styles, a frothing Ambrose and Cena, who returned for the first time since his defeat at SummerSlam to make a play for a potentially record-tying 16th World Championship.

Can AJ Styles cement his status as the new “Face That Runs the Place”? Or is his time up before it even began? Find out on WWE No Mercy, live Sunday, Oct. 9, at 8 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.

After humiliating AJ Styles at the end of last weeks Smackdown, Dean’s pretty pleased with himself and not sweating his opponent too much. Heading in to a main event showdown, he first takes a stop at catering to teach people how to make real coffee, and then a pit stop at the make up girls table to get his hair done. Yes, he’s very particular about that mop. With all of that taken care of he heads to the ring with a gift for Mr Styles. A trophy, an old bowling trophy he got for participating in a tournament. He generously gifts this to AJ and tells him it’ll be the only trophy he ever gets from him. The WWE Championship is going to stay right where it is. AJ challenges Dean to continue making a joke of this and taking him lightly, after all John Cena took him totally seriously and ended up getting pinned at Summerslam. AJ says Dean’s no John Cena, and Dean says he’s damn right. He’s a far more vicious competitor, that likes to drag his opponents kicking and screaming to the brink of their endurance and take them over the edge. He reminds AJ the last time they met in the ring, he beat him. Theres no trophies given out in WWE for the face that comes in second place.

Visibly burned to a cinder by Dean’s acid tongue, AJ responds the only way he can. A swift kick to Dean’s family jewels. Well, that’ll take down any man. But it’ll also make him mighty angry. Don’t kick the hornets nest, AJ, you won’t like what happens. Here’s what had to say!

WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles went face-to-face one final time before their Backlash main event and the situation was as tense as could be.

No words were minced as the two sparred verbally as each tried to gain the mental advantage. Styles was quick (as usual) to rattle off his accomplishments, though Ambrose simply retorted by giving him an old bowling participation trophy to “celebrate” all of Styles’ accomplishments.

Ambrose also was quick to poke fun at the precarious position Styles found himself on the ropes during SmackDown LIVE last week. It was a decision he would ultimately regret when, after some more verbal warfare, Styles kicked Ambrose low, leaving the WWE World Champion in a heap of pain ahead of their clash on Sunday.

AJ Styles has pinned “The Face that Runs the Place,” twice. Now, The Phenomenal One sets his sight on The Lunatic Fringe that runs the asylum.

Styles will challenge WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose at WWE Backlash Sunday, Sept. 11, live on WWE Network. If Styles’ recent win streak is any indication, The Lunatic Fringe may be facing his biggest threat yet.

The Phenomenal One ensured the title match would remain a one-on-one contest by defeating former World Champion Dolph Ziggler on the Aug. 23 edition of SmackDown Live. Yet, even before that, Styles had accumulated an impressive string of major victories including, most notably, going 2-0 against John Cena in singles competition this summer.

Though the involvement of Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson tainted Styles’ first win over the Cenation leader, Styles needed no outside assistance to defeat Cena in their all-time classic return match at SummerSlam.

Styles might have the wind at his back heading into SmackDown Live’s first brand-exclusive pay-per-view, but he also has an unpredictable and unrelenting Lunatic Fringe staring him in the face on Sept. 11. Ambrose’s devil-may-care attitude has benefited his title reign thus far; will his kinetic style of fisticuffs continue to pay dividends against the dynamic force that is AJ Styles?

Don’t miss this huge WWE World Championship clash when WWE Backlash airs live on WWE Network Sunday, Sept. 11, at 8 ET/5 PT.

20160801_SSlam_MATCH_AmbroseZiggler--9fb8a0a6c738812c6a697b3c8004b9d4 are making predictions again, and here’s what their staff predict for Ambrose Vs Ziggler!

GREG ADKINS: Few Superstars have shown more heart more consistently than Dolph Ziggler. Unfortunately for him, reigning WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose will make certain The Showoff gets shut down.
WINNER: Dean Ambrose

RYAN PAPPOLLA: In the weeks leading up to this match, Dolph Ziggler has been displaying serious focus and determination that will be tough for Dean Ambrose to stop. I’m showing my hand and rolling with Ziggler.
WINNER: Dolph Ziggler

SCOTT TAYLOR: Dolph Ziggler will no doubt put on a show-stealing performance, but it’s going to take more than that to steal the WWE World Championship from Dean Ambrose.
WINNER: Dean Ambrose

Summerslam’s less than a week away and the fight for the WWE championship has reached fever pitch, with Dean crawling underneath Dolph Zigglers skin to both light a fire and plant a seed of doubt, Dolph Zigglers had to retaliate with nothing short of guerrilla warefare. Tonight, firing back at Dean’s accusations that he doesn’t have what it takes to hold the championship, never has and never will. Dolph distracted Dean with words, then struck with an out of nowhere superkick to the jaw. Okay, Dean didn’t see that one coming. But the problem with Dean Ambrose is, if you show him your hand, he’ll bite it off. Dean’s seen the trick up Dolphs sleeve and now he’ll be ready for it. However, its enough to put Ambrose in to the mood of a lifetime and he goes in to a match with Erik Rowan intent on working off some of that aggression. He takes down the big guy with relative ease, hitting Dirty Deeds to put Rowan down for the three count. Next stop, Summerslam. Here’s what had to say!

In the immortal words of Lil Wayne and Christina Milian, “Let’s start a fire.” After weeks of both verbal and physical jousting (and more than a little turbulence from the likes of Bray Wyatt), WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose and his SummerSlam challenger Dolph Ziggler’s conflict finally devolved from being rooted in some level of mutual respect into a full-on firestorm on “Miz TV.” Ambrose continued his attempts to break Ziggler mentally in anticipation of their WWE World Championship clash Sunday, but The Showoff would have none of it, firing back with a passionate reply and then a scorching superkick square to the jaw of The Lunatic Fringe.

Is it Sunday yet?

Having to shake off the superkick he ate earlier from Dolph Ziggler, Dean Ambrose now had to refocus his energy and walk into the darkness against Erick Rowan with Bray Wyatt at ringside in his signature rocking chair.

The WWE World Champion did not show many ill-effects from the mouthful of Ziggler’s boot he ate, prevailing in a brutal contest over the bruiser Rowan with Dirty Deeds.

In an eerie scene after the match, The Eater of Worlds was seen now rocking opposite of the ring in his chair. After a moment, Wyatt ominously stood up and left the sheep mask that Rowan often wears in the chair and simply walked away.

Week 2 of Smackdown Live and Dean’s fitting right in to his role as the Kingpin of the blue brand. Starting out the show by heading to the ring and reminding everybody just how hard he’s fought to get where he is, and that he won’t be giving it up any time soon. Which leads us to his latest challenger, Dolph Ziggler. Dean calls him out and while Dolph tries to make nice and say that he thinks they’re a lot alike. Dean begs to differ, he thinks they couldn’t be more different. Dolph Ziggler cares too much what people think, cares about his image and peoples perceptions of him. Dean only cares about winning, and doing whatever it takes to get that win. He tells Dolph his main problem is he’s just not as good as he thinks he is. Planting the seeds of personal doubt in Zigglers brain? Or firing him up for the real fight we all know Dean will want at Summerslam. He’s not relinquishing that title, but he doesn’t want any easy targets, either.

The arrival of Bray Wyatt once Dean’s left throws a wrench in to things. Wyatt challenging Ziggler for his #1 contendership, a match that happens later on in the night. Dean stops by to talk with Renee Young and he isn’t surprised Wyatts stuck his nose in, however he is surprised Zigglers actually giving him a shot at taking his contendership. Who does that? Maybe Dolph really is self destructive. The match rolls around and despite Wyatts best effort, Ziggler pulls out the win. Newly fired up off the back of Dean’s words.. we see a different, more vicious side to Dolph. This is a Ziggler Dean likes.. and one he’ll happily defeat at Summerslam.

As the two showdown over the title, Wyatt once again makes his presence felt. Rowan attacking Ziggler. Dean attempts to make the save but Bray and Rowan take him out. Leaving Wyatt standing tall over both Dolph and Dean. What does he want? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. Here’s what had to say.

Mutual respect does not equal friendship. Example: WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose and his new No. 1 contender Dolph Ziggler. The Lunatic Fringe kicked off SmackDown Live, wasting no time in calling out The Showoff in order to try and get the mental edge leading to their pay-per-view showdown. The two engaged in a war of words with Ambrose targeting everything from Ziggler’s appearance to his infatuation with ”stealing the show.”

Refusing to back down, Ziggler fired right back at Ambrose with a passionate plaea promising to beat him at SummerSlam, one that Ambrose simply debunked and then walked away. As, Ambrose made his exit, Ziggler was left to question whether he was as good as he thought he was alone … until the lights flickered ominously and then suddenly the No. 1 contender was met with a Sister Abigail from Bray Wyatt. With The Showoff at his feet, Wyatt got on the microphone and claimed that Ziggler was not deserving of the title opportunity at SummerSlam, challenging an out cold Ziggler to a match tonight where if Ziggler lost he would relinquish his No. 1 contendership to The New Face of Fear.

Dolph Ziggler Def. Bray Wyatt: Accepting Bray Wyatt’s challenge from earlier in the show, Dolph Ziggler put his SummerSlam No. 1 contendership up for grabs in the SmackDown Live main event. The Showoff and The New Face of Fear went at it full tilt from start to finish in a knockdown, drag out brawl, until, in the final moments, Ziggler exposed the steel underneath the top turnbuckle, which he eventually smashed Wyatt’s head over, allowing him to connect with a superkick and pick up the hard-fought victory to secure his chance at glory.

After the match, Dolph’s celebration was short lived as Erick Rowan attacked the No. 1 contender out of nowhere. The Lunatic Fringe, watching from the commentary desk, refused to stand for the ambush and attempted to help his now confirmed SummerSlam opponent. However, the darkness of Wyatt and Rowan proved too much to handle, as they threw Ambrose out of the ring and Wyatt struck Ziggler with Sister Abagail. When the smoked cleared, the horrific contingent stood triumphant over a prone Ziggler and Ambrose.

With the dawn of SmackDown Live’s New Era comes fresh beginnings and big opportunities, and nowhere is that truer than in the case of Dolph Ziggler, who is set to challenge WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose at SummerSlam.

The Showoff qualified for the title match by winning a loaded No. 1 Contender’s Six-Pack Challenge on SmackDown Live July 26, overcoming an all-star field of John Cena, AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt, Baron Corbin and Apollo Crews. Before notching the massive win, Ziggler said he had “lost his way,” but vowed to not let opportunity slip through his hands again. On Sunday, Aug. 21, he will have his chance to back up his words.

A two-time World Champion in WWE — not to mention, the record-holder for most wins in the history of Kent State’s acclaimed wrestling program — Ziggler has emerged as one of the most resilient athletes in recent history.

Against WWE World Champion Ambrose, however, The Showoff faces a distinctly unorthodox brawler. Perpetual motion personified, Ambrose never backs down from a good fight, and the SummerSlam title bout against Ziggler is no different.

Will The Lunatic Fringe continue to reign supreme on SmackDown Live? Or will Ziggler’s revitalized outlook on life in WWE’s New Era prove to be unbeatable?

Watch Dean Ambrose defend the WWE World Title against Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam, airing live on the award-winning WWE Network on Sunday, Aug. 21, at a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.

This wont be your conventional results post, because before I get to results, as a webmiss I have something to say. 6 years ago I started because I believed this guy had everything it took to be at the top of the game. He’d entertained me for years with his cutthroat acidic attitude and off the beaten path promos. As a wrestling fan I’d always sought out the quirkier characters. The Undertaker and Jake Roberts were and are my standard bearers for what I want to see out of a wrestler. Jon Moxley cut his own path with a crazy but incredibly technical style and those promos that just ripped your ears off and left your senses tingling. I thought a guy like him deserved the most exposure, the coverage, that people that might happen upon him should have a source of information to go to. Dean was signed to WWE and his journeys been a rocky, bumpy, pothole filled one with more frustrations than I can count. But we never wavered in our faith in him and he never let us down. At Battleground, tonight, he showed everybody what we knew all along. That he’s the heart and soul of the business and living proof that perseverance, hard work and pure passion pays off. It’s been a crazy few weeks, when he won the Championship the naysayers had plenty to say. Tonight he shut them up, we couldn’t be prouder. Dean retains the WWE Championship, defeating his former Shield Brothers and taking the title back to his new home of Smackdown. It’s been a hell of a ride, and it’s just going to get wilder! Congratulations Dean! Here’s what had to say.

The main event of WWE Battleground was two years in the making, one the WWE Universe had been waiting to see ever since Seth Rollins stabbed his Shield brethren Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose in the back.

In a high stakes battle that changed the face of WWE, Dean Ambrose retained the WWE Championship, pinning Reigns after connecting with Dirty Deeds and taking WWE’s top prize to SmackDown Live.

Well Dean has that in abudance, and proves it in the Smackdown main event when he takes on Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship in another rematch, and this time defeats him decisively with Dirty Deeds in the center of the ring, despite Seths attempts to derail him from the outset with a pre bell attack. Now heading in to Battleground Dean has an unquestionable victory over one of his opponents and leads the blue brand with the Championship! All in all, a successful night in the Ambrose camp! Heres what had to say.

Then, following a controversial WWE Title Match on Raw, The Lunatic Fringe and his one-time Shield cohort engaged in an absolute knockdown, drag-out free-for-all WWE Championship rematch on the premiere episode of SmackDown Live. In the height of the action, when Seth Rollins attempted to follow up a Superplex off the top rope, Ambrose broke loose and hit Dirty Deeds to score for the first SmackDown Live main event victory! As SmackDown went off the air, Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan joined The Lunatic Fringe in the ring in celebration of this monumental occasion.

Last week Dean threw down the gauntlet to the ever mouthy Seth Rollins and this week he heads in to battle with his arch nemesis for the WWE Championship. The whole landscape of the WWE is due to change with the upcoming draft, and Dean’s hell bent on being Champion heading in to it. While Rollins cuts a lengthy promo roaming around an empty arena and asserting once again his ‘right’ to the WWE Championship (psh, wrestling owes you nothing, Seth) .. Dean takes it back to the beginning. Addressing the WWE Universe from a dingy basement via handheld camera in a throwback to the Shield. He said then that they’d arrived to take over the business, and here they are, fighting over the WWE Championship years later. No matter the outcome, they’ve lived up to their promises.

The main event rolls around and it’s everything we’ve come to expect from an Ambrose Vs Rollins matchup. The boiling tension between the two as always spilling over and knowing one anothers playbooks inside out leading to some intense back and forth. So much so, that an eventual suplex off of the top turnbuckles leads to both men with their shoulders down and a three count with no clear winner. That being the case, the match is declared a draw. Dean retains the Championship as we head in to the draft. But we know he’d rather have had the decisive victory. Either way, the gold stays his.

The good news first, if you’re a Dean Ambrose fan: The Lunatic Fringe is still WWE Champion. The good news second, if you’re a Seth Rollins fan: The Architect fought like hell to wrest the supreme championship from his former Shield ally. Rollins took Ambrose to both the physical limit and the time limit in a match that spilled into a WWE Network overrun after a disputed pinfall left the match with an unclear victor.

Things ended far more decisively in the extra innings, so to speak, when the referee went to the tape and ruled the match a double-pin draw. Ambrose ultimately got the better of Rollins when The Architect attempted to ambush him with the title, meaning he’ll walk into WWE Battleground as champion. And lastly, the good news if you’re a Roman Reigns fan: He’s back Sunday. And that could be very, very bad news for the other two.
