Dean Ambrose vs. Cesaro vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Chris Jericho vs. Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens
Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Money in the Bank 2016
The first of the best Dean Ambrose matches takes place in one of Ambrose’s best nights in WWE overall. He captures the Money in the Bank briefcase after a grueling ladder match against 5 other competitors. Later in the night, he ambushes Seth Rollins, cashes in the briefcase, and becomes WWE Champion.
AJ Styles (c) vs. Dean Ambrose vs. John Cena
WWE Championship Triple Threat Match
No Mercy 2016
AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, John Cena, AND the WWE Championship? I’m invested before the match even starts. Although he was not able to secure the title this time, this was an excellent display of talent from all three men, and one of the best Dean Ambrose matches.
Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho
Although this wasn’t a career-defining performance from either of these men, watching Ambrose face off against, and eventually defeat, The Ayatollah of Rock-n-Rolla is a good time.
Bad News Barrett (c) vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Luke Harper vs. R-Truth vs. Stardust
Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match
With 7 men in the ring at once, it’s easy for one or two of them to get lost in the shuffle. This group pulled it off though and each competitor was given an opportunity to shine. At one point, Luke Harper powerbombs Ambrose through a ladder in probably the most vicious spot of the match.
John Cena (c) vs. AJ Styles vs. Baron Corbin vs. Bray Wyatt vs. Dean Ambrose vs. The Miz
WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match
Elimination Chamber 2017
This was an exciting match overall, but Ambrose had some of the bigger spots, including being thrown through one of the pod doors after eliminating an angry Baron Corbin. Ambrose was one of the first to be eliminated but left nothing to be desired after his time in the chamber.
Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins
Hell in a Cell Match
Hell in a Cell 2014
Two former (now current) Shield members tore each other apart in a Hell in a Cell. This match features some cool spots including a brawl on top of the cell and both men falling from the chain-link side through the announce tables.
For added fun, here’s a video of Seth and Dean sharing their thoughts while watching the match together.
Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Kevin Owens
Intercontinental Championship Last Man Standing Match
Royal Rumble 2016
Both Dean Ambrose and Kevin Owens excel in this type of match, so it’s no surprise they put on a fantastic show. If you haven’t seen it, it’s about as brutal as you would imagine, given the competitors.
Dean Ambrose vs. Triple H
WWE Championship Match
We all knew there was no way Dean was going to beat Triple H in a title match this close to Mania, but this bout told a great story and featured some excellent wrestling, so it’s definitely worth a watch.

Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns vs. Dean Ambrose
WWE Championship No. 1 Contender Triple Threat Match
This match gets a fair amount of hate because Roman Reigns took the victory for No. 1 Contender (thus securing his spot in the main event at ‘Mania), but if you’re not a member of the He-Man Roman Haters Club, you can probably admit that this was a solid pay-per-view main event.
AJ Styles (c) vs. Dean Ambrose
WWE Championship Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match
Honestly, I could do an entire article on this feud alone. There are several matches between these two that deserve to be on the list, and I would recommend giving those a watch too (check out Backlash 2016 and the 01/31/17 episode of SmackDown Live), but this is the best of the bunch.
The ending (James Ellsworth costs Ambrose the title) isn’t my favorite, as I don’t think this match needed any shenanigans, but that aside, this was all you could ask for in a TLC main event.
