5 things we learnt from Dean Ambrose's WWE Championship win
Dean Ambrose has long been the bridesmaid but but never the bride. All that changed at Money In The Bank 2016 when he won the briefcase and cashed in on Seth Rollins later in the night to finally win the WWE Championship. Ambrose has long been a fan favourite but had been in the shadow of his Shield brothers Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.
Ambrose has been one of the biggest draws at WWE Live Events and it’s up to WWE to help Ambrose cement his place as a main event level star akin to Reigns and Rollins. Ambrose is the most organically popular superstar WWE has on their roster right now and after the Roman Reigns ddebacle, he’s a WWE Champion that the fans can get behind.
With The Shield triple threat coming up at Battleground, here are 5 things we’ve learnt so far from Dean Ambrose’s reign as WWE Champion.
5: The Shield are one of the most successful factions in WWE history
If it wasn’t already established before Money In The Bank, The Shield are now definitely one of the most successful factions in the history of the WWE on the same level as The Freebirds and Evolution. Although The Shield had a short run, they were very successful with Reigns and Rollins tag-team champions and Ambrose as US Champion at one point.
Since they broke up all three members have now been WWE Champion atleast once and their triple threat at Battleground is one of the most hotly awaited matches of this decade.
