WWE: Dean Ambrose as World Heavyweight Champion is best for business

Published 13 Comments

At next Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view, we are going to see a fatal-4-way match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship with champion Seth Rollins defending his title.

Rollins will be going up against Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and the wild card that was just added to the fray on Raw Monday night, Dean Ambrose.

This match is going to be absolutely amazing. Before the Extreme Rules event, we learned that the original main event set for Payback leaked in the form of an advertisement, which featured Rollins defending against Reigns and Orton. This was changed over the last few weeks to a fatal-4-way with the addition of Dean Ambrose.

Star in the Making

Dean Ambrose adds an element of crazy that will make this match a must-see. Why he has not been added to the World Championship hunt until now is questionable, especially when you look at his 2014 year.

Last years Hell in a Cell main event cage match with Seth Rollins was one of the craziest Hell in a Cell matches of all time which was the segue to one of the best rivalries in professional wrestling with Bray Wyatt.

Then you would see him journey to the Intercontinental Championship ladder match at Wrestlemania which segued to his intense rivalry with former Wyatt Family member Luke Harper which housed some incredible matches on Raw and Smackdown and propelled both men into one of the craziest street fights ever at Extreme Rules last month. Now we are here.

Dean Ambrose is a great champion. His United States Championship reign was the longest in history since WWE reactivated the title, lasting 351 days, which is overall the third longest in the titles history. This match for him is well deserved.

Mix It Up

Win or lose, this match will raise the stock of Dean Ambrose to heights it’s never seen. A Dean Ambrose victory will change the landscape of the WWE championship picture and spark quite a few questions. SummerSlam?

With Brock Lesnar set to return in July, he will want to invoke his deserved rematch clause. The what if scenario then becomes this: Dean Ambrose defending against Brock Lesnar will be a phenomenal match, but will it live up to Seth Rollins versus Brock Lesnar or Roman Reigns or even Randy Orton versus Brock Lesnar, which a lot of people would pay top dollar to see.

The other question would be this: In the eyes of the WWE, is Dean Ambrose ready to be the face of the company? Many would honestly not care, but is WWE ready for the caliber of competitor such as Dean Ambrose, to be champion?

Dean Ambrose as champion, to coin the phrase made famous by Triple H, is best for business. He draws the crowds and sells the events. He main evented three back-to-back pay-per-views where there was no championship on the line, with The Shield, he was in high profile matches for the U.S. Title and against Evolution, not once, but three times. He knows main event quality matches.

Next Sunday will be no different. We may see a new champion at Payback.
