What a time to be Dean Ambrose.
You're the WWE Champion, you're the face of SmackDown LIVE, you're being interviewed by Stone Cold Steve Austin on his podcast, and you're also Vince McMahon's favourite wrestler.
Well, according to the man himself that is anyway.

Whilst the first three things are factually correct, the latter is something that Dean Ambrose has claimed himself whilst being part of Stone Cold's podcast.
Following Monday Night Raw, Stone Cold sat down with the WWE Champion and discussed all things Ambrose, from his early years, to his road to becoming a big time playing in the roster.
Austin covered a wide range of topics. He spoke about The Shield and it's break up, he spoke about Ambrose's WrestleMania match with Brock Lesnar, and he then spoke about the relationship the champ has with Vince McMahon.
When asked about their relationship, Ambrose admitted he had a great working relationship with the chairman, before also stating that he was his favourite wrestler.
It's well documented that to be over in the WWE, you have to be over with Vince McMahon, something the likes of Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Triple H, and John Cena all were.
It was widely thought that Roman Reigns would be Vince's next guy, and it has looked that way for the past two years, but according to Ambrose, he is the chairman's favourite wrestler.
Ambrose said: “My relationship [with Vince McMahon] is great. Me and Vince are boys. I’m his favorite wrestler.
"I mean I know him pretty well. Vince is a unique individual, and a lot of people get intimidated by Vince, or get the wrong idea of Vince, but I find him very easy to talk to.
"People forget about Vince, yeah he’s a CEO and he’s a billionaire, but at heart, Vince is a street fighter. He’s one of the boys. I’m Vince McMahon’s favorite wrestler; quote me.”
Ambrose is currently feuding with Dolph Ziggler going into SummerSlam, and it looks like the Lunatic Fringe could be the champion for some time, especially whilst Vince McMahon is on his side.
