Ambrose Needs a Spark
Dean Ambrose has been one of the most cheered wrestlers in the WWE over the last two years. Whenever Ambrose’s music hit a lively crowd was sure to follow with thunderous applause. That is until recently, after a couple of less than stellar matches. One versus Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania that saw Ambrose compete in a watered down no holds barred street fight.
The other a dud of a match against Chris Jericho in the first ever Asylum match; which, if not for one thumb tack spot towards the end, would have been forgotten faster than you can say “Just Joe”. The fact is Ambrose is growing stale in his current role of “mid-card lunatic”, and he needs to be put back into a main event position before total apathy sets in.

Right now, Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho have both created a more appealing feud by just comically insulting each other in passing moments than Ambrose and Jericho did in weeks of build up to their match. Dean Ambrose needs to matter again, and the best way to give his character the shot he needs to have him become the money in the bank winner and have a successful cash in against his two former Shield mates.
The Shield Trinity
Speaking of The Shield, that group’s popularity has yet to truly fade in the time since its demise. Dean Ambrose, along with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, made up one of the most talked about groups in recent history. Just take a look at the way the crowd lost their minds at the possibility of a reunion at last year’s Payback PPV.
Just the idea that these three guys could once again run roughshod in the WWE was enough to generate cheers and speculation. Of the Three members of the group, Ambrose is the only one to as yet hold the most prized title in the company.
Despite his aforementioned peak in popularity, the company has yet to truly give Dean a shot at holding the belt for a run. Even a short but meaningful run could do wonders for Dean Ambrose at this point. His Shield brothers have each had a chance at the belt, maybe it’s time to elevate Dean into that main event spot and see what he can do as the World Champion.
SummerSlam Main Event
The WWE will hold their next marquee event on August 21st when SummerSlam comes to Brooklyn, New York after Battleground. This could provide the company an opportunity to showcase their three brightest stars on the same night in a triple threat match for the WWE Championship. Ambrose,
Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins represent the new era of the WWE better than any other wrestlers on the roster. The company already has big plans for Reigns and Rollins obviously but the real money is in the three members of The Shield together in a match.
For Ambrose, this could be just the shot he needed to prove he is a worthy face of the company, sometimes all a guy needs is a chance to prove himself.
Ambrose could help bring the best out of his two former mates and they could do the same for him. The fact remains that for Dean Ambrose to succeed as a main event Superstar he needs a chance to show what he can do in the top spot. Money in the Bank presents an opportunity for him to do just that, to give the event an unpredictable surprise and have Dean Ambrose ascend to the top of the card.
