Dean Ambrose entered Brooklyn as the WWE World Champion, and he’ll leave the Barclays Center with that belt still around his waist.

The Lunatic Fringe had an athletic match with Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam on Sunday night. Ziggler put up a fight but couldn’t do enough to walk away three-time champion.

Things were heated before the first bell even rang.

Then those tensions were taken out on each other, much to our enjoyment.

But ultimately Ambrose had enough left in the tank to retain his title.
