Early life

Jonathan David Good was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on December 7, 1985.[1][5] An avid wrestling fan who idolized Bret Hart as a child, Good used wrestling as an escape from his rough upbringing by immersing himself in wrestling videotapes and reading stories about wrestling's earlier days.[3][6] A year after beginning to train as a wrestler, he dropped out of high school.[6]

WWE

Developmental territories (2011–2012)

 
After signing with WWE in 2011, Ambrose competed in their developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling

Good signed a developmental deal with WWE in April 2011[24] and joined its developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) under the name Dean Ambrose.[25][26]

Ambrose made his televised debut on the July 3 episode of FCW where he challenged FCW 15 Champion Seth Rollins.[25][27] The following month, Ambrose and Rollins had a 20-minute non-title Iron Man match; the match ended in a draw with neither man scoring a fall.[28] A 30-minute rematch, in which the title was on the line, took place in September which Rollins won through sudden death rules.[25][28] At an FCW house show on October 21, Ambrose challenged WWE wrestler CM Punk, who was making a guest appearance, to a match in which Ambrose was defeated. Punk would later praise Ambrose after the match.[25][29]

The Shield (2012–2014)

 
Ambrose (center) debuted on the main roster as part of The Shield in 2012

In November 2012, Ambrose made his main roster debut at the Survivor Series pay-per-view event alongside Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, as they delivered a triple powerbomb through an announce table to Ryback during the triple threat main event for the WWE Championship, allowing CM Punk to pin John Cena and retain the title.[37] The trio declared themselves The Shield, showed villainous traits and routinely emerged from the crowd to attack Punk's adversaries, including Ryback and the WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No (Daniel Bryan and Kane).[38][39][40][41] This led to a six-man Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match being set up for the TLC pay-per-view event on December 16, where Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns defeated Team Hell No and Ryback in their debut match.[42] The Shield continued to aid Punk after TLC, both on Raw and at the Royal Rumble in January 2013.[43][44] The night after the Royal Rumble, it was revealed through footage that Punk and his manager Paul Heyman had been paying The Shield to work for them all along.[45] The Shield then quietly ended their association with Punk. At Elimination Chamber in February, The Shield defeated Ryback, John Cena and Sheamus.[46] At WrestleMania 29 in April, The Shield won their first WrestleMania match against Sheamus, Randy Orton and Big Show.[47][48] Two weeks later on Raw, The Shield defeated Team Hell No and The Undertaker,[49] which would lead to Ambrose making his singles debut against the Undertaker on the April 26 episode of SmackDown, which he lost by submission.[50][51] On the May 13 episode of Raw, The Shield's undefeated streak as a unit ended in a disqualification loss against WWE Champion John Cena and Team Hell No.[52]

 
From May 2013 to May 2014, Ambrose held the United States Championship and became the longest reigning champion under the WWE banner

At Extreme Rules, won the United States Championship by defeating Kofi Kingston.[53] He successfully defended the title the following two weeks with the help of Reigns and Rollins.[54][55] On the June 14 episode of SmackDown, The Shield was given their first decisive loss, against Randy Orton and Team Hell No, when Daniel Bryan made Rollins submit.[56][57] Two days later, Ambrose made his first pay-per-view defense of the United States Championship at Payback, where he defeated Kane by countout.[58] The following month at Money in the Bank, he competed in the World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank ladder match but failed to win despite interference from Reigns and Rollins.[59]

The Shield lost after The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan, and Luke Harper) interfered, thus starting a feud between the two factions.[66] The Shield would lose to The Wyatt Family at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, due to Ambrose abandoning his team midway through the match, thus creating further tension within the group.[67]

The Shield then began a feud with Kane in March, turning themselves fan favorites.[68][69] As a result, they defeated Kane and New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg and Billy Gunn) at WrestleMania XXX on April 6.[70] On April 28, Ambrose surpassed MVP as the longest-reigning United States Champion under the WWE banner.[71] The Shield began feuding with Evolution (Batista, Randy Orton, and Triple H) and defeated them in a six-man tag team match at Extreme Rules.[72] The following night on Raw, Triple H forced Ambrose to defend his United States Championship in a 20-man battle royal, which saw Ambrose surviving until the final two before ultimately losing to Sheamus, thus ending his title reign at 351 days.[73][74] The Shield once again defeated Evolution at Payback in a No Holds Barred elimination match in June.[75] The following night on Raw, Rollins betrayed Ambrose and Reigns and aligned himself with The Authority, breaking up the group.[76]

Feud with Seth Rollins (2014–2015)

 
After The Shield's split in June 2014, Ambrose began a prolonged feud with Seth Rollins

Ambrose promptly began feuding with Rollins, which included the duo interfering in each other's matches.[77] During this period, Ambrose and Reigns quietly separated as a team, with Ambrose debuting new ring attire and new entrance music.[78] Ambrose lost the 2014 Money in the Bank ladder match in which Kane attacked him, allowing Rollins to win.[79] Ambrose was scheduled to face Rollins at Battleground on July 20, but he was ejected from the arena by Triple H after a pre-match brawl with Rollins backstage and Rollins subsequently announced that he had won their match by forfeit, prompting Ambrose to return to the arena and attack Rollins.[80] Ambrose and Rollins eventually wrestled at SummerSlam on August 17 in a lumberjack match, which Ambrose lost after Kane again interfered and Rollins hit Ambrose with his Money in the Bank briefcase.[81] The following night on Raw, Ambrose faced Rollins in a Falls Count Anywhere match, which Ambrose lost by knockout after interference from Kane once again. After the match, Rollins curb stomped his head through cinder blocks, causing him to take a short hiatus from WWE.[82][83] Ambrose returned at Night of Champions in September and attacked Rollins.[84] The duo faced off in a Hell in a Cell match the following month at the namesake event, where Ambrose lost again when the returning Bray Wyatt interfered and attacked him.[85]

Ambrose returned to feud with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, defeating him in a non-title match on the May 4 episode of Raw and was added to Rollins's championship defense at Payback against Randy Orton and Roman Reigns.[95] Rollins would retain his championship.[96] At Elimination Chamber on May 31, Ambrose defeated Rollins by disqualification for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship but did not win the title.[97] Despite the loss, Ambrose stole the title belt from him and challenged Rollins to a ladder match for the championship at Money in the Bank on June 14, which he narrowly lost.[98]

After Money in the Bank, Ambrose teamed up with Roman Reigns to defeat Wyatt and Harper at SummerSlam.[99] The following night on Raw, Ambrose and Reigns fought Wyatt and Harper in a SummerSlam rematch, during which Braun Strowman made his WWE debut, helping Harper and Wyatt.[100] At Night of Champions on September 20, Ambrose, Reigns and a returning Chris Jericho were defeated by Wyatt, Harper, and Strowman in a six-man tag team match.[101] Following Seth Rollins's injury, which forced him to vacate the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in November 2015, Ambrose entered a 16-man tournament to determine a new champion.[102] After defeating Tyler Breeze in the first round,[103] Dolph Ziggler in the quarterfinals[104] and Kevin Owens in the semifinals,[105] Ambrose ultimately made it to the finals at the Survivor Series main event on November 22 but lost to Reigns.[106]

Championship reigns (2015–2017)

 
Ambrose in April 2016
"Crowd was more into Ambrose than [Roman] Reigns... Why does Ambrose continue to do more jobs when he's the most over babyface they have?".

Wrestling Observer writer Jeff Hamlin on Ambrose's recent losses in relation to his popularity with WWE audiences[107]

In December, Ambrose won the Intercontinental Championship for the first time after defeating Owens at TLC.[108] He successfully defended the title against Owens and Ziggler multiple times between December and January 2016.[109][110][111] Ambrose then became the runner-up in the 2016 Royal Rumble match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, being lastly eliminated by eventual winner Triple H.[112] The following night on Raw, Ambrose was announced as part of a triple threat match against Reigns and Brock Lesnar at Fastlane, with the winner facing Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 32.[113] On the February 15 episode of Raw, Ambrose was forced to defend the Intercontinental Championship in a five-way match and lost the championship when Owens pinned Tyler Breeze.[114]

After losing the match at Fastlane when he was pinned by Reigns,[115] Ambrose challenged Lesnar to a No Holds Barred street fight match at WrestleMania 32, which Paul Heyman accepted on Lesnar's behalf.[116] On the February 29 episode of Raw, Ambrose interrupted Triple H by issuing a challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship[117] at Roadblock on March 12, which Triple H accepted; however, Ambrose was unsuccessful at the event.[118][119] He also ended up losing against Lesnar at WrestleMania 32.[120][121] Following this, Ambrose began a rivalry with Chris Jericho.[122][123] He defeated Jericho both at Payback, in a normal match,[124] and at Extreme Rules in an Asylum match (a steel cage match with weapons hanging above the cage and a stipulation where escape from the cage was not allowed or would not allow for victory).[125][126]

"To this point, Ambrose had lost almost every big match he has been in with Rollins, Wyatt, Reigns, Triple H and Lesnar all getting their hands raised at the end [...] We already knew that Dean Ambrose had the ability to be the biggest star of The Shield. Maybe now, especially in light of recent news, he will be".

Wrestling Observer writer Steve Khan on Ambrose's WWE World Heavyweight title cash-in at Money in the Bank[127]

On the May 23 episode of Raw, Ambrose defeated Dolph Ziggler to qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match on June 19,[128] which he won.[129] Later that same night, he would cash in his briefcase and quickly defeated Rollins (who had just defeated Reigns) to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship for the first time.[130] Ambrose made his first title defense against Rollins on the July 18 episode of Raw, where their match ended in a double pinfall.[131][132][133] The following night at the 2016 WWE draft, Ambrose was drafted to SmackDown, being the brand's first draft pick and bringing the WWE Championship with him; that same night, he pinned Rollins to retain the championship.[134] At Battleground, Ambrose retained his title against Reigns and Rollins after pinning Reigns.[135][136] Ambrose then successfully defended the renamed "WWE World Championship" against Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam in August.[137][138] At Backlash on September 11, he lost the title to AJ Styles after Styles hit Ambrose with a low blow while the referee being incapacitated.[139] Ambrose was unsuccessful in regaining the championship at No Mercy on October 9 in a triple threat match also involving John Cena, who was pinned by Styles.[140] On November 20, Ambrose teamed with Styles as part of Team SmackDown at Survivor Series alongside Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton and Shane McMahon in a winning effort.[141] He would face Styles in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match at TLC for the WWE title.[142] During the match, James Ellsworth interfered and pushed Ambrose off a ladder through multiple tables, allowing Styles to retain the title.[143] Ambrose would then fail to become once again the number one contender for the reverted WWE Championship[144] in a fatal four-way elimination match involving Dolph Ziggler, Luke Harper, and The Miz.[145]

The Shield reunion (2017–2018)

On the October 9 episode of Raw, Ambrose and Rollins reunited with Roman Reigns.[162] The newly reformed Shield was due to face the team of Braun Strowman, Cesaro, Kane, The Miz and Sheamus at TLC in a 5-on-3 handicap Tables, Ladders and Chairs match,[163] but Reigns was replaced by Kurt Angle over an illness concern.[164] Ambrose, Rollins, and Angle would go on to win the match.[165] Ambrose and Rollins were scheduled to face SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos in an interbrand match at Survivor Series,[166] but lost the tag titles back to Cesaro and Sheamus on the November 6 episode of Raw after a distraction from SmackDown's The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods),[167] thus ending their reign at 78 days.[168] This led to a match between The Shield and The New Day at Survivor Series two weeks later,[169] which the former won.[170] In December 2017, Ambrose suffered a triceps injury, reportedly rendering him out of action for nine months.[171][172][173][174]

After the match, a frustrated Ambrose walked away from his teammates.[180]

Various feuds and storylines leading to departure (2018–2019)

On the October 22 episode of Raw, after Reigns announced his real-life leukemia and relinquished the Universal Championship, Ambrose and Rollins defeated Ziggler and McIntyre to capture the Raw Tag Team Championships for the second time in the main event. However, Ambrose immediately attacked Rollins after the match, turning heel (villian) for the first time since March 2014.[181] Two weeks later on Raw, Ambrose attacked Rollins again, after the latter lost the tag titles in a handicap match against AOP (Akam and Rezar).[182] The following week, Ambrose burned his Shield vest and explained that being part of the group had made him weak.[183] He would continue to taunt Rollins over the following weeks by stalking him,[184] getting vaccinated against what he perceived to be Rollins's "illness",[185] and ordering his own personal SWAT team to attack Rollins, subsequently proclaiming himself as "The Moral Compass of WWE".[186] Ambrose defeated Rollins at TLC, beginning his third Intercontinental Championship reign.[187] Throughout the following weeks, he successfully defended his title against Tyler Breeze,[188] Apollo Crews,[189] and Rollins.[190]

Ambrose would lose the championship to Bobby Lashley on the January 14, 2019 episode of Raw, in a triple threat match also involving Rollins, ending his reign at 29 days.[191] He entered the 2019 Royal Rumble match on January 27, but was eliminated by Aleister Black.[192] The following night on Raw, he interrupted Royal Rumble winner Rollins and Triple H, proclaiming that Rollins never defeated him clean without interference and provoking Triple H into booking them in a match, which Ambrose subsequently lost. After the match, Ambrose attempted to address the crowd but was interrupted by Nia Jax and Tamina, with the former attacking Ambrose before he simply decided to leave rather than exact revenge.[193] A few hours after Raw went off the air, it was reported that Ambrose had informed WWE officials that he would not be renewing his contract and would be leaving the company shortly after WrestleMania 35.[194][195] WWE subsequently confirmed his decision in a statement.[196] It was reported that he had been offered an improved contract by WWE, which he turned down due to long-standing frustration with the creative direction of his character and a particular dislike of the "hokey" material he had been given.[197]

After weeks of teasing a reunion,[198][199] Ambrose reunited with Rollins and the recently returned Reigns on the March 4 episode of Raw, after they assisted Ambrose from an attack by Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, and Elias the previous week, reverting Ambrose to a face again.[200] At Fastlane on March 10, The Shield defeated the team of McIntyre, Lashley, and Corbin.[201] The following night Raw, Ambrose faced off against McIntyre in a falls count anywhere match, which he lost.[202]

On the April 8 episode of Raw, Ambrose was scheduled to face Lashley in what was billed as Ambrose's last match on Raw. However, the match never took place as Lashley insulted Ambrose's wife, Renee Young, resulting in a brawl and ending with Ambrose being slammed through the announce table.[203] After Raw went off the air, Ambrose joined Rollins and Reigns to address the fans, thank them for their support, and comment on his past accomplishments before celebrating with his Shield teammates.[204] The following week on Raw, he made another appearance after the show went off the air.[205] His final contractual match occurred at a special event called The Shield's Final Chapter on April 21, where he, Reigns, and Rollins defeated the team of Corbin, Lashley, and McIntyre.[206]

Return to the independent circuit (2019–present)

On May 1, Good posted a cryptic video on Twitter, promoting the return of Jon Moxley.[207]

Professional wrestling style, persona, and reception

Ambrose's finishing move, the Dirty Deeds, has been used in two different variations, first utilzing a headlock driver (top), before changing it to a double underhook DDT in 2014 (bottom)
"Unfortunately for the company, the same fans that rejected Reigns love Ambrose. [...] Ambrose, as a physically smaller performer in a land where giants are preferred, is the true dark horse, both on camera and behind the scenes."

CNET writer Daniel Van Boom on Ambrose's popularity compared to main event star Roman Reigns[208]

After debuting on WWE television with The Shield, Ambrose utilized a headlock driver, dubbed Dirty Deeds, as a finishing maneuver.[209][210] Soon after The Shield's initial split in 2014, Ambrose began using a double underhook DDT as his Dirty Deeds finisher.[211]

Referred to as "The Lunatic Fringe" since his time in The Shield,[5] Ambrose's WWE gimmick has seen him characterized as a mentally unstable and unpredictable wildcard.[212] His gimmick has been compared to Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker.[213][214] After becoming a villain in late 2018, Ambrose began proclaiming himself as "The Moral Compass of WWE."[186] His revamped character invited comparisons to Tom Hardy's portrayal of Bane from the 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises.[215]

Ambrose's booking during his feuds with Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt in 2014 was criticized by commentators, including James Caldwell of the Pro Wrestling Torch, who stated that although "he's a utility main eventer", his lack of victories indicated that he was not a guy that WWE was positioning "for a 2-3 year sustained run on top".[216] Ambrose's post-Shield run as a heroic character gained popularity, with him being cheered over fellow heroic character Roman Reigns when they faced off in three world title matches (Payback and Survivor Series in 2015 and Fastlane in 2016).[217][218][219] Ambrose was voted as the Most Popular Wrestler of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated readers in 2014 and 2015.[220]

Other media

Good made his video game debut in WWE 2K14,[221] and has since appeared as a playable character in WWE 2K15,[222] WWE 2K16,[223] WWE 2K17,[224] WWE 2K18,[225] and WWE 2K19.[226] He also made his film acting debut in the 2015 action film 12 Rounds 3: Lockdown, where he played detective John Shaw.[227][228]

It was revealed in 2015 that Good had been dating WWE announcer Renee Paquette, better known as Renee Young, since 2013.[229][230] They were married in April 2017.[231] They reside in Las Vegas, Nevada. In August 2018, Young became a commentator on WWE Raw on the night of Good's return from injury.[232]

Good moved to Birmingham, Alabama for a time in 2018 in order to be closer to doctors during his recovery from his torn bicep after he contracted a staph infection, from which he says he nearly died.[233][234]
