Things are looking up for one WWE Superstar.
That Superstar is Dean Ambrose, who is clearly the workhorse for the sports entertainment company right now. While competing under the WWE banner, he has a reputation for doing the hard yards and almost never missing a single event.
He held the WWE Title for 84 days and headlined several events in some of WWE's biggest markets. He has wrestled in a complete total of 204 WWE matches in the same year. He worked 194 WWE events in 2016 alone. This is 9% more than anybody else on the roster.
Ambrose is currently involved in a storyline which sees him and former Shield brother Seth Rollins having a reunion at Summerslam. He will team up with Rollins and challenge Cesaro and Sheamus for the Raw Tag Team Titles at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view event this Sunday in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center. Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe in a Universal Championship Fatal 4-Way Match will headline SummerSlam, which is set to air on the company’s streaming service, the WWE Network.
Not only does Dean Ambrose have a chance to win his first tag team title in WWE, but he also has a chance to join an exclusive list of superstars. Some members of the WWE Universe might not know, but if Ambrose and Rollins win at Summerslam, then Ambrose will officially become a ‘Grand Slam’ winner in WWE. Here is what that means:
The ‘Grand Slam’ in WWE has changed over the years due to different titles being introduced and taken away. According to WWE.com, here are their current requirements for a ‘Grand Slam’ winner:
“Intercontinental Champion, United States Champion, any permutation of the Tag Team Championship and either active heavyweight title — as in, WWE Championship or, now, the WWE Universal Championship”
Ambrose has achieved many accomplishments since signing with WWE in 2011 and being called up to the main roster as part of The Shield in 2012. He has held the WWE Title once, Intercontinental Championship twice, and the United States Championship once. He is also a five-time Slammy Award winner and won the Money in the Bank briefcase at the 2016 Money in the Bank PPV (pay-per-view) event.
Ambrose would become the first member of the Shield to win the ‘Grand Slam’. Reigns and Rollins are both missing the Intercontinental Title.
