Since The Shield split up a few months ago, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins have been waiting to get their hands on one another, but when Ambrose had to leave to be a part of a WWE film, Roman Reigns stepped up in his absence.
Following Roman's hernia injury last month, Ambrose returned at Night of Champions and has since stepped back into his main event spot. This is a spot that Ambrose is hoping to maintain for a while.
When asked about the opportunity to step into that spot, Ambrose told Sam Roberts he's in enjoying latest challenge.
Not trying to steal position
"Injuries are always unfortunate and sometimes if things are spread a little thinner, you might have to put more work on your plate that night because the show must go on. I'm not trying to take anyone's spot in the business.
"I'm trying to have my own spot that no one can take because it's my spot, it's my thing. I'm trying to do my thing, not really worried about where everybody else is. But stuff happens and you just have to roll with the punches.

"It's a dog-eat-dog world out there and there's only so much screen time on a Monday Night RAW. So when the herd gets a little thinner, you got to step up and take the responsibility of it. In some ways we're all on the same team here, we're trying to entertain the world and put on a hell of a show every night."
Comparisons with other legends
As well as this, Ambrose has been compared to many WWE legends over the past few years, the former United States Champion commented on this:
"I've watched so much wrestling and studied everybody that I don't pattern myself off anyone particularly, or trying to fill any particular role. I'm just a weird mismatch of a million different styles and influences and experience.
"I really don't know what's going to happen when I go out there. What you see is what you get and you might get a different thing on a different night, every night. I'm trying to make my own spot."
Dean faces possibly the toughest match of his WWE career on Sunday night when he steps inside Hell in a Cell with Seth Rollins in one half of the double main event.
