Re: Dean Ambrose confronts Mick Foley at WrestleMania Hotel

Not to many guys I've heard of that would want to lose a match just because it makes sense, usually guys want to win.
I love that mentality. That's how you know someone's 100% dedicated to their character and putting on a show. In an industry where there's so much emphasis on "I MUST WIN EVERYTHING, NO JOBBING, PAYCHECK, WORLD TITLES, GLORY GLORY GLORY", someone like Ambrose is just... refreshing. It's not about winning, not about losing, not about holding the title; I just want to see the guy on TV, doing the amazing things he's been doing for years. I love awesome angles and stories like Foley/Ambrose because they make me feel totally justified in my love for wrestling. And Foley's blogs... I just love it. Screw the work/shoot stuff, I'm just going along for the ride. This is way too good not too. Cannot wait for this to translate onto WWE programming. I don't think has ever been more necessary.
