The NXT graduate downed Reigns in superb fashion, securing a showdown with Rollins at SummerSlam.

Dean Ambrose captured his WWE world title again when he went up against the challenge of both Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns for the first time ever.
The bout in the ring between three former Shield allies had been nearly three years in the making but will go down as one of WWE's most historic nights.
