Each time the camera lights go on, one star shines brighter among the rest. This individual is victorious, constantly showing themselves and the WWE Universe they are deemed worthy of air time, our time and our hearts (or hatred for our beloved heels). Each month, this particular person will be awarded WWE Superstar of the Month and for the month of July, this title goes to Dean Ambrose.
Dean Ambrose has been on whirlwind of success the past several months. It all began in April, when Shane McMahon gave him his own show, The Ambrose Asylum. Of course, that sparked a feud with Chris Jericho since his show, The Highlight Reel, had been cancelled as a result of Ambrose’s new show. In May, they squared off at Extreme Rules in the first ever “Asylum Match”, named in Dean’s honor. This entailed being locked in a steel cage with weapons hanging from the top, allowing your inner maniac to shine through. That’s exactly what Dean did, as he hit Jericho with an aray of object followed by Dirty Deeds onto a bed of thumb tacks (69 to be exact) to win the match. In June, he won the Money in the Bank briefcase and cashed it in that same night, becoming out new WWE Champion. Although Stephanie McMahon tried to pull a fast one at the last Monday Night Raw prior to the WWE Draft stating Seth Rollins had won their scheduled title match, the referee reviewed the tapes and determined Ambrose was still the WWE Champion. A rematch occurred between the two on the premiere of Smackdown Live and once again, Ambrose came out on top. He would put his title on the line yet again at Battleground this month against his former brothers of The Shield, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns which he came out victorious. Dean has certainly had to go through battle to keep his title at WWE Champion, but he has continuously proven to Shane McMahon as well as Daniel Bryan why they made the best decision selecting him as their first draft pick as well as proven to us that he has truly earned his reign as WWE Champion.
