Last year, the wrestling world was shocked when at the Money in the Bank PPV not only did Dean Ambrose win the Money in the Bank briefcase, but he also won the WWE Title in the Main Event from Seth Rollins on the same night. After the fact it became pretty clear that Roman likely only lost the World Title after his failed Wellness test. Dean would end up carrying the World Title from July through till October when he would drop the title to AJ Styles at No Mercy.
Even though Ambrose would only hold the title for around three months and defended the title against a small number of opponents. I am not trying to bad mouth Dean or his run with the title, but I am trying to say is that his title reign really showed a lack of faith in Ambrose. Following a lackluster match against Brock Lesnar at last year's WrestleMania it killed almost all of his momentum that he had built up to that point, which made his title win that July even more shocking.
Though Ambrose may not be looked at as a top talent or someone who could carry the company I think the perception is only that way due to the fact that they turned him heel as of yet. I have always felt that Dean was a natural heel and really can't wait for him flip for the first time as a singles wrestler. Dean's microphone work has always been comparable to a Roddy Piper, but I feel like his heel work was always better than his face work. In my opinion it isn't over just yet for Dean at the top of the card, but his booking needs to improve as the WWE has a bad habit of mailing it in when it comes to Ambrose. I have enjoyed his work since the brand split, but even though not everything has been amazing I feel like his work since his title win has been really good, but not his best.
