Now I'm not saying he should do everything these guys say but he should at least listen to what they say. Also I'm not saying its a bad thing to have a ego in this buisness because you need one to be successful.
Maybe Dean doesn't want to water himself down. If that's the case, he'll probably find it frustrating and end up getting chewed out a lot because I expect they'll try to limit what he can do, but I'd much rather someone maintain their integrity and continue to push things rather than being happy to go through the motions like most of the guys on the roster. JR said that the roster is lacking guys with drive so if Dean can upset the apple cart then that's no bad thing in my eyes, it may not be good for his career short-term but it will be a lot better for us as fans.
FWIW, if Foley has dropped the storyline for the reasons stated then he's a bitch and that's not Dean's problem, Foley is the one who has acted unreasonably.
