Jonathan Good[1][3] (born December 7, 1985) is an American professional wrestler signed to WWE, where he appears under the name Dean Ambrose. He is one-third of the stable The Shield, and is the current United States Champion in his first reign.

He is known for his work in Full Impact Pro, Combat Zone Wrestling and Dragon Gate USA, where he won the FIP World Heavyweight Championship once and the CZW World Heavyweight Championship twice.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Heartland Wrestling Association (2004–2010)[edit]

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Good got his start in Heartland Wrestling Association (HWA) in 2004 using the ring name Jon Moxley. He started training under the tutelage of Cody Hawk and Les Thatcher.[6] In June 2004, Moxley made his debut. Not even a year into his career, Moxley teamed up with Jimmy Turner as Necessary Roughness, and on May 11, 2005, they defeated the team of Extreme Desire (Mike Desire and Tack) to win the HWA Tag Team Championships.[6] After Quinten Lee and Ala Hussein, who made up the team Foreign Intelligence, beat Necessary Roughness for the HWA Tag Team Championships, Moxley started teaming with Ric Byrne in a team known as Heartland Foundation. They beat Foreign Intelligence for the title on August 19, 2005. On the same day, Heartland Foundation was stripped of the title for unknown reasons. Brock Guffman awarded the title back to Foreign Intelligence, and this was Moxley's last stint in the tag team division for a period of time.

In 2006, Moxley started challenging for the HWA Heavyweight Championship. He assembled a stable called The Crew which over time had wrestlers like Sami Callihan, Dick Rick, Eric Darkside and Pepper Parks. On May 9, 2006 he beat longtime HWA superstar Pepper Parks. Moxley held the title for just over four months when he dropped the title to Chad Collyer on September 12, 2006. Moxley regained the title HWA Heavyweight Championship for a second time in 2006 after he defeated Pepper Parks on December 30. On January 2, 2007, Moxley dropped the title to the "Buffalo Bad Boy" Brian Jennings.

Moxley returned to the tag team division when he teamed up with his former trainer Cody Hawk.[6] On June 12, 2007, Moxley and Hawk defeated Tack and Tarek the Legend to win the HWA Tag Team Championship. Moxley and Hawk's reign only lasted four days when Andre Heart and Richard Phillips, collectively known as GP Code, beat them for the title. Moxley continued to work the tag team division for the rest of 2007 through early 2010. In 2009, Moxley started teaming up with rival King Vu in a team known as Royal Violence. They captured the HWA Tag Team Championship twice while teaming together. The first time they captured the title was on October 14, 2009 when they beat the Kosher Klub. They held the title until December 2, 2009 when they were beaten by Irish Airborne (Dave and Jake Crist). Just over two weeks later, Royal Violence regained the HWA Tag Team Championships as they beat Irish Airborne on December 19, 2009.

While still one half of the HWA Tag Team Champions with King Vu, Moxley captured the HWA Heavyweight Championship for a third time. On January 6, 2010 he successfully cashed in his "Pick Your Poison" title shot against Aaron Williams. King Vu then turned on Moxley, costing them the HWA Tag Team Championship. On February 24, 2010, the Noble Bloods (Lord Matthew Taylor and Sir Chadwick Cruise) defeated Royal Violence for the titles. On July 14, 2010 Moxley lost the HWA Heavyweight Championship to Gerome Phillips.[7]

After Moxley's successful defense of the IPW World Heavyweight Championship against Aaron Williams at IPW "Desperate Measures" on June 5, 2010, Jimmy Jacobs attacked Moxley causing the locker room to come out and separate them both. Moxley wondered why Jacobs attacked him, then both proceeded to have a war of words with each other in the back.[8][9] On August 21, 2010 at IPW 9th Anniversary: Reign of the Insane, Moxley defeated Jacobs to successfully retain the IPW World Heavyweight Championship.[9] On October 2, 2010 at Shocktoberfest Moxley defeated Drake Younger in a three stages of Insanity match to successfully retain the IPW World Heavyweight Championship.[10] On January 1, 2011 at Showdown In Naptown Moxley lost the IPW World Heavyweight Championship to Jimmy Jacobs in a dog collar match due to referee stoppage.[11]

World Wrestling Entertainment / WWE[edit]

Florida Championship Wrestling (2011–2012)[edit]

On April 4, 2011, it was confirmed that Good had signed a developmental deal with World Wrestling Entertainment, and Dragon Gate USA granted his release from the promotion.[24] Good had previously appeared for the promotion as Jon Moxley on January 20, 2006, when he teamed with Brad Attitude in a loss to MNM in a match was taped for WWE Velocity.[3] On May 27, 2011, he joined WWE's developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling, under the name Dean Ambrose.[2][25]

Ambrose made his televised debut on the July 3 episode of FCW TV, where he challenged Seth Rollins, another prominent independent wrestler.[2][26] Ambrose and Rollins had their first match for the FCW 15 Championship in a 15 minute Iron Man match on the August 14 episode of FCW TV. The match ended in a draw with neither men scoring a fall, so Rollins retained his title.[27] A subsequent 20 minute rematch for the title two weeks later resulted in a similar 0-0 draw.[27] A second 30 minute rematch for the title on the September 18 episode of FCW TV went to a time limit 2-2 draw and the match was sent into sudden death rules, where Rollins scored a pinfall to win the match 3-2.[2][27] Of note, an entire episode of FCW TV was dedicated to hyping and showing the third match in the series.[27] Ambrose finally beat Rollins in a non-title match in the first round of the Super Eight Tournament to crown the new FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion.[28] However, Ambrose was unsuccessful in the tournament finals as Leo Kruger won the Fatal-Four-Way match.[28] Ambrose also cost Rollins his FCW 15 title by attacking Damien Sandow during his title match with Rollins, causing a disqualification in the deciding fall.[29] Ambrose then unsuccessfully challenged Sandow for the FCW 15 title,[30] before Leakee trumped both Ambrose and Rollins during a triple threat match to determine the #1 contender to the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship.[31]

At an FCW house show on October 21, Ambrose challenged WWE wrestler CM Punk, who was making a guest appearance, to a match; Punk accepted and defeated Ambrose in a 30 minute match, and later paid tribute to Ambrose.[2][32] Ambrose's behind-the-back attack on WWE wrestler and FCW commentator William Regal set up a match between the two on the November 6 episode of FCW TV, where Regal pinned Ambrose to win the match.[2][33] Following the loss to Regal, Ambrose became obsessed about wanting a rematch and regularly taunted Regal by using Regal's finishing moves to win matches.[34] Ambrose started appearing at WWE house shows from December 2011.[35]

At WrestleMania XXVIII Axxess, Ambrose had a confrontation with veteran hardcore wrestler Mick Foley, claiming that Foley needed to be held accountable for leading a generation astray.[36] Ambrose continued his verbal assault on Foley through Twitter[37] and WWE reacted by "sending Ambrose home" from their SmackDown taping.[38] Ambrose challenged old nemesis Seth Rollins for the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship on the June 24 episode of FCW TV, but Rollins defeated him.[39] Ambrose finally received a rematch with William Regal on the final episode of FCW TV on July 15. The match began with Regal viciously targeting Ambrose's injured arm, but Ambrose managed to badly disorient Regal. Then, Ambrose kneed Regal's head into an exposed turnbuckle, causing Regal to bleed from the ear; the match was then ruled a no contest. After the match, Regal applauded Ambrose and allowed Ambrose to hit him with the Knee Trembler. Afterwards, the FCW locker room stormed the ring to separate Ambrose from a fallen Regal while commentators questioned whether Regal would ever be able to wrestle again.[40]

The Shield (2012–present)[edit]

Ambrose made his main roster debut on November 18, 2012 at the Survivor Series pay-per-view alongside Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, where they assaulted Ryback during the triple-threat main event for the WWE Championship, leading to CM Punk pinning John Cena to retain his title.[41] The trio declared themselves "The Shield" and vowed to rally against "injustice." They denied working for Punk, but routinely emerged from the crowd to attack Punk's adversaries, including Ryback and WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No (Kane and Daniel Bryan).[42][43][44][45] This led to a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match being set up for the TLC pay-per-view, where Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins defeated Team Hell No and Ryback in their debut match.[46] The Shield continued to aid Punk after TLC; during Punk and Ryback's TLC match for the WWE Championship on the January 7, 2013, episode of Raw, they attacked Ryback, which resulted in Punk again retaining his title.[47] During the Royal Rumble event where The Rock challenged for Punk's WWE Championship, a blackout occurred and The Rock was attacked by the Shield in the darkness, leading to Punk pinning The Rock and retaining his title. The match was later restarted with The Rock winning the WWE Championship.[48] The following night on Raw, it was revealed through footage that Punk and his manager Paul Heyman had been paying the Shield and Brad Maddox to work for them all along.[49]

The Shield then quietly ended their association with Punk while a feud with John Cena, Ryback and Sheamus led to a six-man tag match on February 17 at Elimination Chamber,[50][50][51] which the Shield won.[52] The Shield had their first Raw match the following night, where they defeated Chris Jericho, Ryback, and Sheamus.[53] Sheamus then formed an alliance with Randy Orton and later Big Show, to take on the Shield,[54] but on April 7 at WrestleMania 29, the Shield defeated Big Show, Orton and Sheamus in their first WrestleMania match.[55] The following night on Raw, The Shield attempted to attack The Undertaker but were stopped by Team Hell No.[56] This set up a six-man tag team match on the April 22 episode of Raw, where The Shield emerged victorious.[57] Four days later on SmackDown, Ambrose made his singles debut against Undertaker but lost via submission, after which the Shield attacked Undertaker and triple-powerbombed him through the announcer's table.[58][59] On the April 29 episode of Raw, The Shield defeated Team Hell No and WWE Champion John Cena in a six-man tag team match.[60] On the May 3 episode of SmackDown, Ambrose defeated Kane in a singles match.[61]

On the May 6, 2013 episode of Raw, The Shield defeated United States Champion Kofi Kingston and The Usos in a six-man tag team match, during which Ambrose pinned Kingston.[62] Four days later on SmackDown, Ambrose defeated Daniel Bryan in a singles match via disqualification after Kingston interfered.[63] On the May 13 episode of Raw, The Shield's undefeated streak in televised six man tag team matches ended in a disqualification loss in an elimination match against Cena, Kane and Bryan. With Kane and Bryan eliminated, Cena pinned Rollins and then Reigns was disqualified. Ambrose was disqualified when Reigns and Rollins attacked Cena.[64] On May 19 at Extreme Rules, Ambrose defeated Kofi Kingston to win the United States Championship, his first singles title in WWE, while Rollins and Reigns won the WWE Tag Team Championships later that night.[65] Ambrose made his first televised title defense on the following episode of SmackDown, retaining his title when he was disqualified due to the rest of the Shield's interference.[66] Three days later on Raw, Ambrose defeated Kingston again to retain his title.[67] On the June 14 episode of SmackDown, the Shield's unpinned/unsubmitted streak in televised six-man tag team matches came to an end at the hands of Team Hell No and Randy Orton, when Daniel Bryan submitted Rollins.[68][69] Three days later at WWE Payback, Ambrose defeated Kane via count-out to retain the United States Championship.[70] The following night on Raw, Ambrose had a title rematch against Kane and retained after Reigns and Rollins got Ambrose disqualified.[71]

On July 14 at Money in the Bank, Ambrose competed in the World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank ladder match and failed to win the match despite interference from Reigns and Rollins.[72][73] Ambrose retained his United States Championship at Summerslam by disqualification when Roman Reigns of The Shield speared Rob Van Dam. Recently, Ambrose began a feud with Dolph Ziggler when Ziggler disagreed with Triple H's management of WWE. On September 15 during Night of Champions pay-per-view Ambrose successfully defended his title by defeating Ziggler.[74] The following night on Raw, Ambrose would lose to Ziggler in a non-title match, which lead to another title defense later in the week on SmackDown, but Ambrose retained the championship when Reigns and Rollins interfered. On the October 16 Episode of Main Event, Ambrose defeated Ziggler to retain his United States title. Later that month, on October 27, at the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, in a title match, Big E Langston defeated Ambrose by count-out, therefore retaining his United States Championship.

At TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, CM Punk defeated the Shield in a handicap match after Ambrose received a Reigns spear aimed for Punk.[75] On the 10 February 2014 episode of Raw, Ambrose's open challenge for his title was answered by Mark Henry, in which Ambrose only retained his title upon disqualification due to the Shield's interference;[76] Reigns followed up by defeating Henry without interference on the next Raw.[77] At the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, the Shield lost to the Wyatt Family; during the match, Ambrose and Bray Wyatt brawled into the crowd, but Wyatt returned to the ring with no sign of Ambrose, which caused Rollins and Reigns to be outnumbered and overwhelmed.[78] On the March 3 Raw, the Shield lost a rematch with the Wyatt Family when the Shield's poor teamwork led to Rollins walking out during the match; Rollins claimed that he had enough of being the glue holding the group together.[79] However, The Shield quickly got back on the same page and began a feud with Kane, turning all members of The Shield faces in the process.[80][81] During this feud, Kane was joined by the New Age Outlaws to battle The Shield in a six-man tag-team match at WrestleMania XXX, which The Shield won.[82]
