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!

It’s the last Thursday Night Smackdown before the show goes live on Tuesdays, and Dean plans to take it out with a bang. Banging Kevin Owen’s face against mat as hard as he can, that is. Opening Smackdown up with this promise, we go on to see Dean backstage with Shane McMahon, discussing who knows what. But with Shane the new COO of Smackdown, maybe he was making Dean an offer he couldn’t refuse? At any rate, Dean heads in to the main event against Kevin Owens, and the match barely even gets underway before Seth Rollins interferes and Sami Zayn arrives for the save, turning it in to a tag team finale for Thursday night Smackdown. Unfortunately due to weasly tactics by Owens and Rollins, Sami Zayn eats defeat for the duo, but Dean swiftly gets his revenge. Attacking Owens and then Rollins who runs for safety. Smackdown closing on Dean standing tall with the WWE Championship. No matter what brand he ends up on next week, we’re hoping he takes that title with him! Here’s what had to say!

Before WWE Champion Dean Ambrose’s main event match against Kevin Owens could begin, Seth Rollins, the Superstar who will challenge for The Lunatic Fringe’s WWE Championship on Raw this Monday, made an unscheduled appearance on SmackDown commentary to lend his thoughts on the upcoming showdown. However, before the one-on-one encounter between Ambrose and Owens was a minute long, Rollins blindsided Ambrose and opened the door for a two-on-one assault on the titleholder.

Yet, their numbers advantage was short-lived as Sami Zayn soon came to The Lunatic Fringe’s aid. From there, the contest was restarted into a tag team contest, pitting Rollins and Owens against Ambrose and Zayn for the first time in history.

The action was intense as both pairs of future Battleground opponents gave it everything they had on the final Thursday edition of SmackDown. In the closing moments, “The Underdog from The Underground” made a critical mistake. With Ambrose down, Zayn missed a Helluva Kick on Rollins. This allowed Owens to trip up with his one-time friend and set up a Rollins Pedigree for the victory.

Following the match, Rollins and Owens tried to continue their assault on Zayn, but Ambrose put an immediate stop to it. The Architect and The Lunatic Fringe scrapped it out before Ambrose got the upperhand, sending both his opponents heading for the hills.

Another week another dastardly scheme from Seth Rollins. But this week Dean ain’t playing anymore. Fun and games time is over and he’s done enjoying his victory, it’s time to get serious and if Seth Rollins thinks he’s only got to worry about Roman at Battleground he’s got another thing coming. The switch is flipped and it’s time for Rollins to remember just who he is dealing with. Seth knows what Dean’s capable of, the depths he’ll go to, the muck he’ll crawl through, the blood he’ll spill just to get his hands on the WWE Championship and be ‘the man’.. what exactly does he think is going to happen now Dean actually has the title in his grasp? He’s not going to let it out of his grasp, in fact he tells Rollins he’ll have to pry it from his cold dead fingers first. He means business, and he tells Seth exactly what he thinks of him and his cheating, weasly tactics. Rollins makes a hasty retreat, but takes Dean’s offer of a one on one Championship match on next weeks RAW. Ambrose has something to prove, and he’s got Rollins shaken. Here’s WWE.coms review.

Looks like one of the unspoken side goals of Seth Rollins’ “Redesign, Rebuild, Reclaim” mantra was “Get Your Own Talk Show,” because after some political maneuvering among the McMahons, The Architect debuted his very own variety program, “The Rollins Report,” on Raw. Seth’s selling point to Shane and Stephanie McMahon was an earthshaking exclusive from Roman Reigns, but “The Man’s” scoop turned out to be a bunch of doctored footage assembled to further tarnish the suspended Reigns.

Enter Dean Ambrose, who did what he does best and riled Rollins into a frenzy, only this time Seth turned it around, hurling insults that lathered The Lunatic Fringe into a frothing rage. Not only that, but Rollins got something even sweeter out of the exchange: When Ambrose snarled that he’d accept a one-on-one challenge at any point for his WWE Championship, Rollins laid one down for next week’s Raw.

20160705_10BestMatches--0d27b2896d0d952429fb66b06761ff97 has an article up looking back on the ten best bouts of the year so far, with two of Dean’s matches making the list! Read what was said about those two matches below and head over to to see which others made the top ten.


8. Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho vs. Cesaro vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens — Money in the Bank Ladder Match; WWE Money in the Bank

If there is such a thing as a glass ceiling, Dean Ambrose had been slamming his head against it for a solid year leading up to this star-making match for The Lunatic Fringe. But to highlight Ambrose’s ultimate Money in the Bank victory — and subsequent cash-in — would do a disservice to the magnificent performances of Chris Jericho, Cesaro, Alberto Del Rio, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, all of whom laid their bodies on the line in the most inventive fashion possible to reach the proverbial next rung. Dean-o’s victory was sweet, to be sure, but anybody here would have been a worthy champion-in-waiting. To quote one of the participants: Drink it in, man.


7. Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose — WWE Championship Match; WWE Roadblock
While Triple H’s WrestleMania challenger, Roman Reigns, was sidelined with an injury, The Game might have thought he had an easy Road to WrestleMania to look forward to. Dean Ambrose made sure that didn’t happen, hounding The King of Kings into a title defense at WWE Roadblock and coming one technicality away from stealing the gold for himself. Apart from being a top-tier performance from both Superstars, it’s tempting to look back at this as a moment of clarity for Ambrose, who fell short of the ultimate prize once more, but would not do so again.

WWE Champion Dean Ambrose kicked off SmackDown by anointing himself a Special Guest Referee, and he proceeded to distract Seth Rollins with several obscure announcements during The Architect’s match against Jey Uso. Just when it looked like Uso might prevail with the Samoan Splash, however, Rollins managed to lift his knees at the last second and hit the Pedigree for the win.

The Lunatic Fringe continued to play (mic) mind games after the bell. But who will be in a playful mood following the epic WWE Title Triple Threat Match at WWE Battleground between Ambrose, Rollins and Roman Reigns?

As The Miz fueled speculation as to where “Miz TV” will end up after the WWE Draft, WWE Champion Dean Ambrose barged in before being introduced and proceeded to chomp on his Miami-made Cuban sandwich.

When The Lunatic Fringe decided to use his host’s designer suit jacket as a napkin for his meal, however, Maryse threw the garment over the titleholder’s head and opened the door for an irate Miz to kick him to the canvas.

For the first time-ever, Dean Ambrose competed on SmackDown as the WWE Champion in the Champion vs. Champion Match against Intercontinental Champion The Miz — thanks to an altercation between them earlier on “Miz TV.”

It was an excruciating contest from start to finish, with both titleholders leaving it all out on the canvas. And after The Lunatic Fringe survived both the Figure-Four Leglock (with an injured leg) and the Skull-Crushing Finale, Miz went to the top rope one time too many. As a result, Ambrose took control and blasted The A-Lister with Dirty Deeds for the huge main event victory.

You know what they say: When the sports-entertainment gods close a door (or cash in a contract), they open a window. In this case, they handed a 30-day suspension to Roman Reigns, giving Seth Rollins the opportunity to capitalize on the controversy and try to get The Big Dog booted from the long-brewing Shield Triple Threat at WWE Battleground, thereby giving him a cleaner shot at Dean Ambrose’s WWE Championship.

Ambrose, of course, wasn’t about to let Rollins get his way, and things quickly got even more complicated when AJ Styles and John Cena threw their names in the proverbial hunt for the title. It fell to Stephanie McMahon to make the executive decision (and point out that Shane was again absent this week), and not only did she preserve Reigns’ spot in the match, she handed Cena and Styles “win-and-you’re-in” matches against Rollins and Ambrose, respectively, for later in the night. So much for an open window.

Dean Ambrose def. AJ Styles

Sure, the sports-entertainment gods may have closed that door and opened a window, but seems like Seth Rollins has decided he’ll take the door after all. With John Cena barred of the WWE Battleground main event, Rollins had no force but to throw his support behind Dean Ambrose’s efforts to keep AJ Styles from joining the marquee match himself.

Luckily, Rollins got his wish, and he ironically has John Cena to thank: When the rest of The Club showed up to thwart a surging Ambrose, Cena sprinted down the ramp to fight them off, allowing Ambrose to plant The Phenomenal One with Dirty Deeds. While The Club swarmed Cena and dropped him with a Magic Killer on the entrance ramp in retaliation, Rollins jumped Ambrose from behind with a pair of Pedigrees. Battleground is set. Consider the opening salvo fired.

Dean Ambrose is the WWE Champion and that means he’s the Kingpin of the WWE, a name given to him by the announce team on Smackdown, and he likes it. As Seth Rollins issues an open challenge at the start of the show that’s answered by Sami Zayn, Dean interrupts and tells them if theres going to be a debate it needs to be done properly. With The Ambrose Asylum: Championship Edition. Rollins is less than pleased as the sets brought in, including a brand new cactus. Ambrose gets right to business, asking Seth why he’s acting like a jackass. This prompts Seth in to a tirade of abuse that ends with him leaving. Terrible attitude. I guess the Ambrose Asylum is over. Late on in the evening Dean finds Seth backstage and follows him to the ring, he’s adept at annoying his enemies.

He stays ringside for Sami Zayn vs Seth Rollins, getting on commentary and offering some insight in to the mind of Seth Rollins and the battle they face in a few weeks time. Dean’s keen to prove to both Seth and Roman that he’s the kingpin player here in WWE. Rollins wins his match and gets in Dean’s face almost inevitably. However, after a blindside attack, Dean sends Seth running for the hills to avoid retaliation. A few weeks, Seth. You’ll get your chance to have your ass kicked. Don’t worry.

Seth Rollins kicked off SmackDown with fighting words for Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose, the two Superstars he will meet in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship at WWE Battleground. Despite his second World Title reign lasting just minutes, The Architect had not lost his confidence, predicting he will prove he is the best member of the onetime Shield on Sunday, July 24, live on WWE Network.

A fired-up Rollins proceeded to issue an open challenge to anyone in the locker room, which was promptly answered by Sami Zayn. WWE Champion Dean Ambrose soon followed with a “championship edition” of “The Ambrose Asylum.” An irate Rollins’ reluctance to be part of the titleholder’s impromptu show led the former titleholder to storm off the set. Despite the abrupt exit, SmackDown’s main event was set with Sami Zayn taking on Seth Rollins in a must-see clash.

WWE Champion Dean Ambrose joined the SmackDown announce team as he watched one of his two WWE Battleground challengers, Seth Rollins, battle Sami Zayn in an explosive main event showdown.

The Underdog from the Underground’s daredevil style pushed an embattled Rollins to the limit, but The Architect ultimately prevailed after pouncing on his opponent with an emphatic Pedigree for the victory.

After the contest, a heated Rollins got into The Lunatic Fringe’s face before unleashing sneak attack with a series of strikes. The unstable Ambrose responded with a frenzied assault before nearly hitting Dirty Deeds on Rollins, who frantically escaped.

Two years removed from the unforgettable rupture of The Shield, newly crowned WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose faces his fellow former Hounds of Justice Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns in a Triple Threat Match at WWE Battleground.

A three-way showdown among Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns seemed inevitable from the moment Rollins stabbed his brothers in the back, dissolving the once-dominant faction. Less expected was that it would be The Lunatic Fringe sitting in the catbird position as defending champion. Yet, Ambrose earned that accolade at WWE Money in the Bank, winning the event’s namesake match and cashing in his guaranteed championship match contract that same night against Rollins, who himself had just pinned Reigns to regain the title.

The cyclonic turn of events turned WWE on its head and underscored what everyone already knew: Competition among the former Shield allies runs deep and is full of parity.

So evenly matched are the Superstars that a single No. 1 contender could not be named the following night on Raw, when The Big Dog and The Architect jockeyed for the right to challenge Ambrose. As the thrilling match reached its crescendo, Reigns Speared Rollins onto the Spanish announce table and neither Superstar could beat the referee’s 10-count.

Even though no decisive winner was declared, Ambrose proved himself to be a fighting champion right away, volunteering to take on both Reigns and Rollins on Sunday, July 24.

With that, the table is now set for one of the most anticipated WWE World Heavyweight Championship Triple Threat Matches of all time. Which ex-Hound of Justice will prove his supremacy at WWE Battleground? Will it be the rebuilt and redesigned Architect, eager to win back the title he trained so hard to reclaim, only to lose it moments later? Will The Big Dog use his punishing strength to dismantle both friend (Ambrose) and foe (Rollins)? Or might the match’s Lunatic Fringe remind those who know him best just how dangerous he can be?

Watch the Shield showdown that has been years in the making when WWE Battleground airs live on the award-winning WWE Network Sunday, July 24, at 8 ET/5 PT.

A busy night for Dean Ambrose as his show ‘Ambrose Asylum’ is re-instated by Shane McMahon and his first guests? His former brothers in arms, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. With Money in the Bank on the horizon, Rollins and Reigns are headed in to a big showdown and Dean has the burning questions everybody wants to know. Which man thinks he’s taking home the World Heavyweight Championship. Rollins who never lost it, Reigns who rightfully has it.. or Dean. Who could win the Money in the Bank briefcase and cash it in on the same night! Of course, all of this happens after a little reminiscing, the three of them recounting stories of better times before The Shield turned sour. It doesn’t last long though, as Rollins declares his favorite moment was when he smashed them both in the back and left them in the dust. Ouch. At the end of this segment, it’s Dean left standing tall after Roman takes Seth out with a superman punch, and Dean takes out Roman with Dirty Deeds. He’s going to get his hands on that briefcase or die trying.

Later on, Stephanie McMahon is less than pleased Dean had his show reinstated by Shane, and puts him in to the main event match against Jericho. With all the other MITB players at ringside on commentary, timekeeping and ring announcing. That just seems like a recipe for disaster, and it is. As soon as Dean wins the match, a brawl breaks out that ends with Jericho holding the briefcase. Will that happen on Sunday? Not if Dean has anything to do with it!

All the talk has been, understandably, about Roman Reigns’ long-brewing battle with Seth Rollins over the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Money in the Bank. But perhaps the real X-factor of the match is … Dean Ambrose? Yep, Dean Ambrose. In one “Ambrose Asylum,” The Lunatic Fringe went from genial middleman among the reunited Shield members to a potential dark horse in Reigns and Rollins’ title match.

He did so in the most Ambrose way possible, casually interrupting the champion and challenger’s talking points. Per Reigns, Rollins is a pretender to the throne and a sell-out; per Rollins, he never lost the title and Reigns is a paper champion. But Ambrose added the observation that he could win Money in the Bank and snatch the title from under both their noses. As if to punctuate his point, the ensuing brawl between the estranged Hounds of Justice ended with Ambrose standing tall after a Dirty Deeds to Reigns, signifying that the inmate may well run the asylum very, very soon.

Last Thursday on SmackDown, Chris Jericho finally got his win against Dean Ambrose … and, just like that, the honeymoon is over for “The Best in the World At What He Does.” The Lunatic Fringe knocked Jericho off in their rematch on Raw, but the presence of Cesaro as the ring announcer, Alberto Del Rio as the timekeeper and Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens on commentary made the bout a veritable pressure-cooker for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match participants.

Well whadaya know, that pressure did, in fact, boil over. Everyone was civil enough to wait until after Ambrose reversed the Codebreaker into Dirty Deeds, but then it was “go time” as soon as Owens rushed Ambrose and the rest followed, instigating a Pier Six brawl that ended with Jericho making the symbolic grab of the contract.
