Follow Sportskeeda for the latest WWE news, rumors and all other wrestling news.
The Lunatic Fringe, Dean Ambrose has been away from the ring since the last nine months. His last WWE appearance was on the RAW episode where Samoa Joe broke his arm in a backstage attack.
Dean Ambrose had to miss the Royal Rumble PPV, WrestleMania 34 and also the Greatest Royal Rumble PPV.
The rumor mill is abuzz with the rumor of his return every week and just one week before WWE Summerslam, boom!
A jacked up Dean Ambrose is beating the heck out of Samoa Joe backstage on SmackDown Live, thus, making his shock return to WWE after spending nine long months on the sidelines.
This storyline would have fared way better than how Dean Ambrose fared on RAW as a part of the Shield and as a heel post that.
Here are the things that might have been different had the Grand Slam champion joined the blue brand on his return.
#1 Challenging AJ Styles for the WWE Championship match at Summerslam 2018
So was Samoa Joe cleared for the WWE Championship match after Ambrose laid him out backstage? No, not at all.
Dean Ambrose would walk out to the ring confronting Shane McMahon and Paige. The Lunatic Fringe would demand the top officials to put him in the WWE Championship match at Summerslam for he proved that he was better than Samoa Joe.
It is reasonable to think that Shane McMahon would disagree with Ambrose's opinion and insert him in a No.1 contender's match against Randy Orton or even any one member of the New Day!
The Cincinnati native would defeat his opponent in minutes to move on to challenge The Phenomenal One at the Grandest Party Of The Summer.
Irrespective of the result of the WWE Championship match at SummerSlam, this would have been a better way of launching a new look Ambrose instead of having him stand in the corner of Seth Rollins during the Intercontinental championship match at the PPV.
