[adinserter block=”1″]I try not to jump on the bandwagon but this Dean Ambrose bandwagon is rolling full steam ahead. The last few weeks have convinced me of one thing. The Lunatic Fringe is the guy who should beat Brock Lesnar.
It was never meant to be this way. A few weeks ago when Randy Orton pinned Dean Ambrose the message was clear. His push was going to be capped. There were no future plans for Ambrose other than a series against Seth Rollins and a nice spot in the mid-card. He wasn’t at Orton’s level, he wasn’t at Rollins’ level, he wasn’t close to Reigns, and he certainly was not in Lesnar’s league. That has all changed.
Ambrose is the breath of fresh air this company has been searching for the last few years. The rotation of guys in and out of the mid-top spots has been disappointing and uninspiring. Even CM Punk’s breakout year in 2011 wasn’t enough to earn him the WWE top spot. Ambrose has a chance of snagging that spot sooner than you can imagine.
This guy has it all. If not for Paul Heyman coming out of retirement and cutting some of the best promos of the last two decades, Ambrose would be the top promo in the business. Hey, there is nothing wrong with taking a backseat to Paul Heyman on promos. The fact is that this guy is so much better than the rest of the guys on the roster it’s scary. His delivery, his content, and his aura are top money in my opinion.
Ambrose has something that many others before him couldn’t quite achieve. He has superstar charisma. This guy is electric the second he walks out on the ramp. Ambrose could talk, walk, or wrestle and he is must-see television the second he appears. Fans are warming up to him and he is quickly becoming one of the most popular guys on the roster. All he needs is that opportunity and he’ll run with it. Enter Brock Lesnar.
The booking of Brock Lesnar in 2014 is the best investment the WWE has made in years. The investment in Lesnar’s unbeatable run is that the guy who conquers the beast is going to be a legend overnight. The man who slays the dragon will have the kingdom at his feet. The wrestler to beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE world championship will have a push like no other the second his hand is raised with the belt. Ambrose deserves and should get that push.
Ambrose’s character sets up a great scenario to beat Lesnar. Sure Lesnar is unbeatable in the ring but has he ever wrestled someone as crazy as Ambrose? Ambrose gets the match and uses every dirty trick and foreign object he can to tear down the giant Lesnar. Eventually the unconventional Ambrose’s madness is just too much for even an animal like Lesnar and he catches Brock off-guard. You can’t tell me that Ambrose wouldn’t come out of that with the potential to be the next flagship star of the WWE?
[adinserter block=”2″]Maybe it’s pie in the sky because the likelihood of this happening today probably isn’t very good. The plan is clear and it’s Roman Reigns. Unfortunately Reigns is a victim of timing and he just happens to be ready at the same time the fans are gravitating to Ambrose. The irony is that Ambrose goes against the grain in regards to how the company sees its top stars while Reigns is cut out of a WWE mold. It just goes to show you that what the fans want and the company want are rarely in sync.
Ambrose will be leaving for a while to film a movie. I can’t imagine Brock losing the title before Ambrose returns. Imagine the pop and the potential Ambrose could have as a mystery opponent after disappearing for weeks and beating Lesnar on his first night back? It could be huge and the WWE are fools not to consider it.
Sorry Roman but Dean Ambrose is just best for business.
