** Came up again at SurvivorSeries 2016 after his scuffle with Smackdown teammate/rival AJStyles and Styles' non-attempt to break up an ensuing pinfall led to Ambrose being eliminated from the 5-on-5 Men's elimination match. Later, after it came down to Styles and the Wyatts versus Rollins and Reigns, cue Ambrose storming the ring, assaulting ''Styles'' (his teammate, mind you), and ''even joining in'' on a Shield reunion to beat up security and put Styles through an announce table, leading to the WWE World Champion's elimination.

** Wrestling/AJStyles is shaping up to be this as well, in a half-serious half-SitcomArchNemesis sort of way. Confirmed on the 11/1/16 edition of ''Talking Smack'', in which Dean compared himself and AJ to [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin and the chicken]].

* GenreSavvy:
** Making it a point that Rollins will not cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase.
--> '''Ambrose:''' Every time you ever think about cashing in that contract, Iím gonna be there. Iím gonna haunt you. So go and make all the plans you want, 'cause that briefcase youíre holding doesnít have a contract inside. Itís loaded with TNT, and every time you try to cash it in, itís gonna blow up in your face, Seth. Believe that.
** How right did he turn out to be? Rollins had to wait until WM 31, when Ambrose was completely debilitated and damaged in the IC Title Ladder match, before he could think to cash in his MITB contract in the main event.
** Historically in wrestling, there are two ways to guarantee one's calculated plan will fail: if it gets leaked on camera in advance or if it's a repeat of something they've already done. Furthermore, the Money in the Bank ladder match takes quite a toll on every competitor involvedóthere's a reason Wrestling/{{Kane}}'s the only one who ever cashed in MITB the same night he won it. So naturally, on the go-home ''Raw'' to ''Money in the Bank 2016'', Dean Ambrose, the same guy who's either come up short or got screwed countless times in world title situations, attempts at revenge on Seth Rollins, and competitions against Roman Reigns alike, took it upon himself to host ''The Ambrose Asylum'' with Reigns and Rollins as his guests and outright tell them that he would win the MITB ladder match and then cash in on the winner of their title fight that same night to walk out the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. On its face it looked like Ambrose had just screwed himself into coming up short in the title picture yet again, either by painting a target on his back by slighting the physical stake of the ladder match or by [[JustBetweenYouAndMe openly scooping the champ in on his move in advance]] and giving them time to prepare for it. Even Rollins dismissed the possibility out of hand in an interview later in the week, it was so blithely stupid. [[spoiler:'''[[IGaveMyWord Except it wasn't.]]''']]

He signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in 2011, and was assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), WWE's developmental promotion, with the new ring name '''Dean Ambrose'''. The next year, he debuted on WWE's main roster alongside Wrestling/RomanReigns and Wrestling/SethRollins as part of the [[{{heel}} villainous]] stable Wrestling/TheShield at that year's ''Survivor Series''. The group--Ambrose included--[[HeelFaceTurn turned face]] in March 2014, only for Rollins to betray and attack them that June. Outraged by his teammate's treachery, Ambrose began a [[ItsPersonal deeply personal]] feud with his former Shield partner. He's a one-time United States Champion, with his 351-day reign being the third-longest in history and the longest within WWE (who acquired the title in 2001), a one-time Intercontinental Champion, the 2016 Wrestling/MoneyInTheBank winner, and a one-time and current WWE World Champion.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Make no mistake, Ambrose was an absolute prick to Dolph Ziggler in their Summerslam feud, putting down his abilities as a wrestler and mocking him for not having what it takes to be a world champion. However, he was right about one thing. As Dean put it so delicately to Dolph, even if Ziggler did win and become the world champion, it doesn't mean his problems will magically disappear overnight and his life will become complete. On the contrary, his life as a world champion will become even more stressful as pressures will mount for him to carry the company on his back. Not only that, but wrestlers, management, and even fans themselves will watch him like vultures and just wait for him to slip up and fall. Basically, even if Dolph does win, his critics, doubters, and personal demons will still be there but as world champion, he has an even bigger target on his back for all the doubters and naysayers. Pretty much, Ambrose gave Dolph the straight scoop and told him that he'd better have "ice water running through [his] veins" if he wanted to be world champion.

** Far more successful than his partner in the Switchblade Conspiracy, Sami Callihan. Sami did get signed to NXT as Solomon Crowe, but for whatever reason officials and/or bookers never got behind him. He was rarely used and eventually requested his release as a result.

The {{irony}} is that in Dragon Gate USA\EVOLVE the two acted as {{foil}}s with Callihan declaring he was sick of independent wrestling and trying to get the attention of Dragon Gate proper while Moxley was defending the honor of independent wrestlers against the Dragon Gate regulars and their fans.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Despite being face, Dean fits the archetypical "bad boy" well enough, and it no doubt played a large in his popularity with the female demographic.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Despite his poor track record with feuds, Dean was this to Wrestling/KevinOwens, who has yet to beat him clean or otherwise in a one-on-one match.



* CoolLoser: Ambrose is no doubt one of the more entertaining, charismatic superstars on the roster and has put on some hard-hitting, entertaining matches with the likes of Wrestling/SethRollins, Wrestling/WadeBarrett and Wrestling/BrayWyatt... but he didn't win a single PPV match or come out on top of a feud in between the Shield dissolved in June 2014 (or, if you count his time as a singles competitor in The Shield, since ''Night of Champions 2013'', where he beat Wrestling/KofiKingston to retain his United States Championship) until ''Extreme Rules 2015'' in April 2015, where he defeated Luke Harper in a Chicago Street Fight. Granted, a few of those PPV losses have been due to being screwed at the end somehow. Only Wyatt really ended their feud clean. Finally, officially, subverted at ''TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs 2015'' when he won the Intercontinental Championship from one [[Wrestling/KevinSteen Kevin Owens]], his first championship since he held the United States Championship while still in the Shield.
