The comparisons between Dean Ambrose and Stone Cold Steve Austin took off after the implosion of The Shield. Seth Rollins betrayed his brothers to join forces with Triple H and Randy Orton, resulting in Ambrose looking to exact revenge on him. The two Superstars met in a Lumberjack match at SummerSlam, which Ambrose lost, followed by two more losses, after which he kicked off a feud with Bray Wyatt.

At the time, Ambrose truly embraced the gimmick of "The Lunatic Fringe", someone who was uncontrollable and unpredictable, similar to what Austin was back in the day. At Money in the Bank 2016, Ambrose cashed in his briefcase to defeat Rollins and win the WWE World Heavyweight title, seconds after the villain had won the same by putting down Roman Reigns. Ambrose also appeared on Austin's podcast, and it was nothing short of intriguing to see two very similar personalities chat and share stories from their careers.
