Dean Ambrose was supposed to be the guy left behind when The Shield broke up back in June 2014.
Seth Rollins was the most impressive wrestler with a variety of flips, tricks and moves up his sleeve that could be pulled out at any time, while Roman Reigns was the physical specimen - a human powerhouse that had the look of a World Champion.
Ambrose managed to become a fan favourite though thanks to his new-found attitude as 'The Lunatic Fringe'. However, he never really did anything to justify the moniker - until now.

Ambrose is now facing off against Chris Jericho in the WWE's first ever 'Asylum Match', which looks like a steel cage match but without the option of walking through the door to get the win, as well as a number of weapons being hung up around the structure for the wrestlers use.
When Ambrose announced his "gift" for Jericho, it was the first time that he has looked truly deranged since becoming a singles performer.
At no point during his feud with Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, or against Triple H or Brock Lesnar, did Ambrose actually look like a crazy person. He was just someone who couldn't quite get the gold in the Rollins and HHH feuds and then wouldn't give up against Lesnar - until he got hit by one F5 at WrestleMania 32.
But look at Ambrose in the video when the 'Asylum' is lowered, littered with weapons to the sound of slightly disturbing music - which sounds like it has come straight from Psycho.
That's the first time Ambrose has ever looked like he's mentally unhinged.
If they were to make that creepy-sounding music his entrance song then that would absolutely cement his status as deranged and a lunatic.
For so long, the WWE have called Ambrose crazy without him ever justifying the moniker. Now, he's making up matches that can and will inflict pain on himself as well as his opponent.
He has to embrace it. Go full in on being the WWE's resident psychopath. We're not talking about Mick Foley levels of creating split personalities, but just hamming up the craziness more and making us believe that there is something wrong in his brain.
This match could be the real breakthrough that Dean Ambrose needs to become one of the top guys in the company again and, finally, get his hands on the WWE World Championship.
And it's all come about through the WWE creative team finally let him be a bit crazy. Who could've seen that coming!?
