We have a guest writer making her debut for the site! Shelly takes a look at the events since the break up of The Shield and Ambroses increasingly erratic and unstable behavior. Leading us to one conclusion I think we all want to see! Read on and let us know what you think in comments or on Twitter!
A Brief History of Instability By Shelly
June 2, 2014: Monday Night Raw: Seth Rollins turns on the Shield, visibly breaks Dean Ambrose’s heart, and joins the Authority.
June 9, 2014: Monday Night Raw: Ambrose gives us sweet guarantees: When I get the opportunity to rearrange your face – which I will. Your nose isn’t going to be here anymore it’s gonna be over here, by your ear. I say ear because you’re only going to have one left. I’m going to rip your dirty, stinking hair out by the roots, I’m gonna stuff it in your mouth. There’ll be plenty of room where your teeth used to be.
June 29, 2014: Money in the Bank: Rollins demands that Ambrose be entered into the Money in the Bank ladder match so he can keep an eye on him. Ambrose is more preoccupied with hurting Seth Rollins than he is with getting the briefcase, and delivers a suplex off of a ladder that no sane wrestler would attempt. He is not victorious. Seth Rollins walks away in one piece and with a guaranteed title shot.
July 20, 2014: Battleground: What was supposed to be a match turns into an unsanctioned assault, but Seth Rollins again escapes, and with his teeth intact.
August 4, 2014: Monday Night Raw: Dean Ambrose terrorizes… the Money in the Bank Briefcase. Seth Rollins is annoyed, but still not suffering from severe blood loss.
August 17, 2014: Summerslam: Dean Ambrose chooses a lumberjack match stipulation so Seth Rollins can’t run away. Seth Rollins cheats, wins, and walks out under his own power, if a little damaged.
August 18, 2014: Monday Night Raw: Seth Rollins curb stomps Dean Ambrose’s head through a pile of cinderblocks. Ambrose refuses medical attention and disappears, presumably wandering the desert and exercising some incredible healing powers. Seth Rollins gloats for weeks, all his facial features in more or less the right configuration.
September 21, 2014: Night of Champions: Dean Ambrose returns and beats the hell out of Seth Rollins as best he can before being handcuffed and removed from the building.
September 29, 2014: Monday Night Raw: Dean Ambrose rigs the Money in the Bank briefcase to explode green goop in Seth’s face. It’s funny. Seth is embarrassed, but, you know, not hospitalized. Later, Dean is outnumbered and another Raw ends with him laid out.
We’re Dean Ambrose fans. We’ve seen the damage he can take and come back from. We’ve seen the brutality he’s willing to inflict on himself to push a little further, to win a match, maybe, or just to shake the foundations of an environment that’s been too tranquil for too long. We know he started wrestling in broken glass because he was bored.
It’s been the same story since his WWE debut. Dean Ambrose is the crazy one because he doesn’t care if he hurts himself as long as he hurts the other guy a little more. In recent months — in the agonizing weeks since Seth Rollins betrayed him — this hasn’t served him well at all. His recklessness has only seen him laid out more times than we can count — even more often than is reflected in the incomplete timeline presented here, while Seth Rollins has been victorious again and again.
Is Hell in a Cell going to be a breaking point for this narrative? When does Dean Ambrose transcend the space he exists in now (“unstable: no care for his bodily integrity as long as he gets to hurt you, too”) into another space, another story: that expanse of viciousness where there’s not even his pain to consider anymore because he doesn’t feel it? Where there’s just fury and destruction, and where the noteworthy aspect of his insanity isn’t that he’s willing to hurt himself to hurt you, but simply that he is going to hurt you and he is not going to stop: that venerable sadistic space of the wrestling pantheon occupied by predecessors like Vader and Mick Foley.
When does he actually get to use all those chairs he’s so fond of throwing into the ring? When will he break all 206 bones in Randy Orton’s body, as he promised in a Shield promo years ago? When will he rip Seth Rollins’ hair out and shove it down his throat, as he promised mere months ago? When is he going to deliver on these brutal visions and let us see what he can do when he’s pushed, truly, to the edge? This is the scary and exciting part. In the interim between Seth’s betrayal and Hell in a Cell, in what will amount to 146 days, he hasn’t even really gotten started. He hasn’t even snapped yet. He’s still playing games. Seth Rollins still hasn’t gotten what’s coming to him. Put them in a Cell, WWE, and let us all see what Explicit Ambrose Violence means.
Wrestling Action Figure channel SillySuperpop took a trip to yesterdays RingsideFest event in Times Square, New York. Meeting up with everybody including Dean. Check out the video above but be warned, theres bad language!
Theres a fly in the ointment and that fly goes by the name of John Cena. Theres nothing more maddening that something getting in the way of revenge and ever since Night of Champions, Cena has set his sights on Seth Rollins, an already ‘Wanted’ man. Cena starts out Smackdown with one of his lengthy speeches and declares that Seth Rollins needs to get his behind down to the ring so he can exact some revenge. What he gets, however, is Dean Ambrose. Now Dean has warned him once – don’t try to take whats his. Ever. It won’t end well for you. Dean arrives in the ring and reminds Cena of this, although the man seems determined to take what Dean already marked as his kill, telling Dean he has no idea what it takes to take on Brock Lesnar and what what it feels like to have that opportunity ruined. Dean counters by reminding Cena he may have lost one match, but he almost lost his entire career thanks to the selfish, vicious actions of Rollins. Theres nobody and nothing that is going to stop him from wiping the smug smirk off of Rollins’ face.
Cena concedes, telling Dean he doesn’t want to fight with him and whoever gets to Rollins first should just have him. He calls a truce. Something Ambrose is reluctant to accept, but just as he’s about to shake his hand and take it they’re interrupted on the Titantron by Rollins, Orton and Kane. The trio stick the knife in with a few ‘home truths’. Revealing that Ambrose had called Cena some not so nice names during his time in The Shield and had said he couldn’t wrestle his way out of cereal box. Orton reveals that Cena had called Dean a wannabe, pretending to be crazy just to get over. Thems fighting words.
With that said, Dean and Cena find out they’re in another tag match against Kane and Orton later in the night. The truce already looks flimsy.
As we head toward the Main Event, Dean stops by Renee Young’s interview set and tells her he has nothing to say about or to John Cena, but Seths probably seething by now, he hates being made a fool of. But there’s no amount of embarrassment he can put Seth Rollins through that will erase the memory of getting his head smashed through cinder blocks. So he’ll go through anybody The Authority wants to get his revenge.
As the match rolls around, Dean starts things out against Orton and gets things off to a good start, but after a few brief tags, Dean soon finds himself teamed up on and lost in the Authoritys corner. Kane and Orton viciously work him over and keep him from tagging out to Cena time and time again. Just as it seems he might be able to reach salvation, Seth Rollins provides the distraction and John Cena leaves Dean high and dry! The match is stopped as Kane and Orton begin a nasty double team that sees Dean eat an RKO and a chokeslam, before Cena rushes back to chase them off.
Too little, too late, Cena. The damage is done. Thanks for nothing, partner!
WWE.com have an article up on what they think the WWE landscape will look like in 5 years time, and their predictions for Ambrose are bold (and completely believable!). Check out what they think is in store for Dean and read the full article over on WWE.com!
Dean Ambrose will be the longest reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion of modern times
First things first, Dean Ambrose is going to win the title. The title. The WWE World Heavyweight Title. And he ain’t gonna let it go, wheeling and dealing his way to what will become the longest recorded reign since the unification of the two championships. Having already proven himself as a master of disguise, chicanery and otherwise unsavory techniques, he’ll channel Ric Flair and empty his bag of dirty tricks to extend his reign through multiple pages of the calendar.
Ambrose will do this with help from a man who’s no stranger to representing underhanded, record-breaking champions: Paul Heyman, whose work as the advocate for Brock Lesnar, CM Punk and others will earn him the spot of COO after Triple H abdicates the position for a larger role. In other words, Paul Heyman will, for all intents and purposes, finally be running WWE, and Dean Ambrose will be his newest and greatest “Guy.” Hey, stranger things have happened. — ANTHONY BENIGNO
TRENTON — At 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds of pure muscle, there’s little that can stand in the way of World Wrestling Entertainment’s Dean Ambrose. But on Saturday night in Trenton, one man is going to try.
The battle between Ambrose and wrestler Kane will take place at the Sun National Bank Center during a WWE Live performance also featuring a street fight between the Big Show and Randy Orton as well as wrestlers Mark Henry, Gold & Stardust, Kofi Kingston and the WWE Divas.
At the heart of Ambrose’s fight is his struggle against a powerful posse of WWE wrestlers led by Triple H and called “The Authority,” of which Kane is a member.
“Kane is a loyal soldier for Triple H and I’ve been a bit of a thorn in The Authority’s side,” Ambrose said, anticipating Saturday’s matchup. “He’s a bonafide monster. They’d like to stomp me out and they sent Kane after me.”
And, according to Ambrose, there’s only one way to handle the situation.
“I’ll be swinging, kicking, biting, scratching and clawing everything in my path – and Kane will be in my path,” he said. “It’s not rocket science what my strategy has to be in a match like this. I have to throw punches until I can’t throw punches anymore. I have to really swing for the fences from bell to bell.”
But Ambrose isn’t always so aggressive. In fact, he says that preparing for a fight is when he’s the most low-key.
“I listen to some Hank Williams before I go out,” Ambrose said. “I tell some jokes. I have fun. I don’t waste too much energy thinking about it – I like to save that all for the ring. The calmest part of my day is right before a match.”
But once he’s unleashed in the ring, he said, that attitude is gone. Ambrose said he especially loves the vibrancy and energy of the crowd, which is usually so loud it makes it difficult to hear anything else, he said.
“That’s what you feed off of,” he said. “That’s the energy and the electric jolt that will power you through every time.”
And that’s why seeing the WWE live is such a unique experience, he said.
“If you’re a wrestling fan and you watch it on TV, that’s great, but there’s nothing quite like being there live,” he said. “Even if you’re not a fan, there’s the energy, there’s something for everybody. The energy of a live show can’t be duplicated – you’re feeling the hits, seeing the lights, hearing the music. No matter what you’re into, it’s the best way to experience it.”

If you thought Ambrose made last weeks RAW absolute mayhem, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Hot on the heels of Smackdown and Deans kidnapping of the Money in the Bank Briefcase, he shows up to interrupt Seth and The Authority arguing about what to do with him in the ring. Seth thinks he should be called out and forced to hand over the briefcase and definitely punished, but up on the Titantron, Ambrose has other ideas. Getting their attention he holds up the battered briefcase and simply asks – is this what you’re looking for?
Dean tells Seth he used to be a man but now he’s nothing but a coward in the shadow of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, always running to them for help. If he wants his briefcase back, he’s going to have to come and get it himself. With that Ambrose vanishes from the screen and Seths left seething in the ring, he decides to go after Dean and walks straight in to an ambush from John Cena! Seth manages to escape once again and a meetings called backstage, Triple H demands Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble go and find Ambrose and get that briefcase back. However, it seems they’re incapable of finding him, despite him being shown just wandering through the halls. The nights just going to get worse for The Authority.
Ambrose heads down to the ring with the briefcase in one hand and a large holdall over his shoulder, getting in to the ring he sets up a table and places the briefcase on it, setting the bag beside it. He takes to the mic and mocks Jamie and Joey for not being able to find him – he’s also decided he doesn’t like how The Authority runs their merch stands, tonight for one night only he’s going to have a Dean Ambrose Clearance Sale! He unzips the bag revealing a whole stack of merchandise stolen from the stands. He’s giving it all away, well, except for the briefcase. In the past few days he and the briefcase have gotten pretty close and it’s contents revealed a side of Seth he never knew existed. Ew. Moving on. The sale begins and as Dean takes out the merch, Jamie and Joey finally arrive. Dean’s amused by The Authority ‘Sending out the cruiserweight division’ to get him. They demand he hand over the briefcase and Dean refuses, if they want the briefcase, they’ll have to take it from him. Joey and Jamie don’t like this idea and beat a hasty retreat, leaving Ambrose to his sale.
T Shirts for everybody! How dare they call him Unstable!
As he finishes handing out a huge amount of free merch to the crowd, Rollins finally arrives – with a herd of Security. Dean this time apologizes for stealing Seths briefcase, backing out of the ring with his hands up, he leaves through the crowd so as Seth can claim his precious case back. Like Gollum from Lord of The Rings, Seth caresses his beloved case, confused by Ambroses behavior, he makes the mistake of opening it. A shower of green slime exploding from the case and hitting Seth right in the face. In the stands, Dean swears it wasn’t him! He’s innocent! Look at that face. Furious, Seth storms back to Triple H and Stephanie, where Triple H makes the Main Event match of Ambrose and Cena Vs Orton and Kane. Though it seems as though Orton and Kane are getting more than a little sick of being Triple H’s errand boys.
Later on in the night as Cena is interviewed by Renee Young backstage, he claims he’s going to go through Orton and Kane and then get his hands on Rollins. Ambrose arrives, taking exception to this. If anyone’s getting his hands on Rollins, it’ll be him. Not even the mighty John Cena is going to take that away from him. He leaves Cena on that thought as the Main Event rolls around.
The match starts out with Cena and he immediately walks in to dangerous ground as Kane and Randy Orton work well together and keep him grounded in their corner. Ambrose paces the apron like a caged animal begging to be let in, but every time Cena gets close, he gets pulled away. It seems like the match might even be lost until finally Cena rises from the dead and makes the hot tag to Ambrose. Dean comes in like a bolt of lightning, everywhere at once. Taking out Kane and then crashing in to Orton on the outside. He has Orton on the run swiftly, and with a vicious Dirty Deeds it looks like Dean has the match won when Rollins appears from nowhere and leaps on him, breaking up the pin.
The assault begins, but Cena and Ambrose fight back. Cornering Rollins it seems like they might finally have their day, but teamwork doesn’t last. Cena and Dean beginning to fight over who gets to beat up Rollins first. This proves the distraction Rollins, Orton and Kane need to divide and conquer. As Dean stalks Rollins, the deadly viper sneaks up behind him and nails him with an RKO. Once he’s down, Seth sets up the briefcase and Kane and Orton hold Deans head over it for Rollins to hit his wicked curb stomp, knocking Ambrose loopy. Cena suffers the exact same fate and once again Seth Rollins and The Authority cronies stand tall over a fallen Dean Ambrose.
