Name: Jonathan “Dean Ambrose” Good
Born: December 7, 1985
Occupation: Professional Wrestler, actor
Dean Ambrose was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on December 7, 1985. He grew up in the city’s East End and spent much of his young life in public housing. To escape the miseries of poverty and his daily struggles, he would entrench himself in professional wrestling and read the biographies of wrestlers as well as the industry’s earlier days.
After he started to train to wrestle, Dean dropped out of high school. He started to work for Les Thatcher at the Heartland Wrestling Association (HWA) by selling popcorn and helping set up the wrestling ring. He only began to train for wrestling at the age of 18 under both Thatcher and Cody Hawk. Dean’s ring name was Jon Moxley.
Known as quite the lady’s man in several interviews, Dean’s only publicly recorded relationship is with current World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announcer Renee Paquette (also known as Renee Young).
Dean has worked for various promotions in his career, including Insanity Pro Wrestling, Combat Zone Wrestling, Dragon Gate USA, Ring of Honor, Evolve and Jersey All Pro Wrestling. It wasn’t until 2011 when he signed a developmental deal with WWE and worked in the company’s then developmental program called Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). It took only about a year for Ambrose to make his main roster debut as part of the faction The Shield alongside Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.
Since his November 2012 debut at Survivor Series, Dean has won the United States and Intercontinental (current) Championships and has competed several times for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He continues to be one of the company’s biggest draws and one of the most over babyfaces on the roster.
Aside from Monday Night Raw or SmackDown, Dean can be seen in the WWE Studios film “12 Rounds 3: Lockdown.”
We estimate that Dean’s net worth is $6 million (2016).
So how much is $6 million really?
Dean’s $6 million net worth is a lot more than many other SuperStars on the current roster. It’s also double that of Seth Rollins’s net worth and is more than Reigns’s $5.5 million.
$16 million can buy you more than 750,000 “Ambrose Asylum” and “Lunatic Fringe” t-shirts on WWEShop.com. $16 million can also buy you half a million copies of WWE’s 2012 Survivor Series show, which featured the debut of The Shield.
