When The Shield were on the rise in the WWE it was very clear that the company picked Roman Reigns to be the next big face in the company, and that might still be the case once WrestleMania 31 comes around.
However, right now even though the WWE are focusing on making Roman Reigns into a huge star – which he is doing brilliantly – he isn’t the best face in the company.
Time for a change
For years John Cena has been the face of the company but we’re all aware of the negative reaction John Cena receives on a weekly basis. Daniel Bryan was next to feel the love from the face and became the top face on his way to becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
But because of his unfortunate injury the role as the top face in the company has been handed to someone else, not John Cena or Roman Reigns; but Dean Ambrose.
Best in the business
This time last year most fans would have laughed if you told them Dean Ambrose would be a top face in the company, as it was abundantly clear at one stage that Dean Ambrose will do what most people figured would come natural to him, and turn heel and become the best heel in the business.
But now we know Seth Rollins made the move to heel and he is doing a great job, but Dean Ambrose is doing better as a face.
It is great to see that Ambrose is doing really well, as it seemed he and Rollins wouldn’t be as relevant as Reigns but I’d say they are actually more relevant than Roman Reigns right now.
The reason we fans love Ambrose so much is because of the whole story which has played out, his opportunity at getting redemption and getting even with Seth Rollins who turned on The Shield and ‘bought in’, before going on to capture the Money in the Bank briefcase.

The fans are behind Dean Ambrose to not only take down Seth Rollins for his betrayal, but get one over the people behind his turn, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Randy Orton and Kane; he just refuses to stay down and that’s why the fans cheer him on regardless of the beating he’s getting or the unfavourable situation he’s in, he keeps the fans entertained.
Dean Ambrose doesn’t dress like a superstar either, he looks like he just turned up to the arena in his vest and jeans, throwing any jacket over it and competing before leaving. He’s there to brawl and he very rarely disappoints.
It’s his wild style of brawling, even though he is very gifted in the ring it’s the certain edginess he brings to the ring which is backed up by his fantastic, crazy, psychotic character.
He’s a completely different superstar to anyone in the WWE, nobody can touch Ambrose when it comes to putting in so much detail into a character, the mannerisms and his attitude to every single situation.
For example, his actions on Monday Night Raw earlier this week, after Seth Rollins defeated Rob Van Dam he walked towards the presents on the stage and had a feeling Dean Ambrose would be there, and he was right. As you can see in the video below, the way Dean Ambrose burst through the box on to Rollins couldn’t have been played out by any other superstar, it just matches his character so well.
The fans love a superstar who puts his body on the line, and Ambrose does that incredibly well. Fans sympathise as Dean Ambrose gets a beating in almost every single match, but he always taunts his opponent to give more. He’s a dangerous competitor and that is why fans love him.
I believe Ambrose can continue his run as the best face for a while, this feud with Rollins could go on for a while longer and after that, if Ambrose is booked well, he should remain as the best face in the company, all in all he is the whole package.
WWE fans – what do you think? Is Dean Ambrose the best face in the WWE right? Or do you disagree with my choice? Let us know in the comments section below.
