Re: Dean Ambrose Pre-Debut Discussion Thread
He is gaining heat in dark matches, and I think the WWE wants the fans to become familiar with him, so that when he debuts there aren't a bunch of crickets. By then half the audience will know who he is. You have to remember the WWE just added another show to tape, and so you will end up with more dark matches. This exposure is great, and it's far better than wrestling on NXT in front of 100 people, or less. Right now he gets a few thousand to watch before the taping of all shows.
As many of you may know the hardcore fans, and a spread of casuals are always in the arena when the gates are first open. People are seeing him, and there is a reason he is the most beloved superstar not on television. I'm guessing he is going to be a huge star because there hasn't been this much anticipation since Lesnar debuted from OVW on Raw with Paul Heyman.
