WWE: What on earth is going on with Dean Ambrose

Published 9 Comments

A few weeks ago during RAW, Dean Ambrose was seated backstage describing with one sentence what each picture reminded him of.  He was shown pictures of Kane, Stephanie McMahon and Roman Reigns, all of which he described in short sentences.

If I was seated in the same position and the good psychologist lifted a picture of Dean Ambrose towards me, I'd confidentially say "star".  However, the higher-ups at the WWE headquarters clearly don't agree with me. 

When the Shield first came up to the main roster back in the fall of 2012, everyone was excited. All over Wrestling News sites and Facebook pages the people flocked in numbers, commenting how happy they were for the former Jon Moxley and Tyler Black  (Ambrose and Seth Rollins) who both already had a solid reputation as future stars.

Down Hill

Ambrose, however, was clearly the favourite of the three and was booked during the first part of the Shield's run as the leader of the pack.  

Fast forward two and a half years and Dean Ambrose has been relegated to challenging for the Intercontinental Championship while former Shield brothers Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins both battle it out for the WWE Championship (whilst winning the Money in the Bank and Royal Rumble respectively).

It is a crime that Ambrose has been relegated to a feud for the Intercontinental title (no disrespect to Bad News Barrett) as he has, for months, been the most over guy in the WWE.  

A Real Star

Who was getting the most cheers while Daniel Bryan was away? Dean Ambrose.  Whose merchandise actually outsold John Cena's? Dean Ambrose.  It's obvious; Ambrose is a ready-made star. 

Ambrose has been used in the last few months as a sort of ladder to greatness for both Bray Wyatt and Seth Rollins and one has to wonder when the favour will be returned.

Ambrose is certainly not in danger of becoming just another jobber on the roster (I actually predict he will win the Money in the Bank ladder match this year, turning heel in the process) but he is falling too far behind some of the other young stars and, as previously mentioned, this is a crime.
