Second, I think if he becomes that good in the E and is putting on the best matches or best promo's every night, the crowd will force WWE to push them. ie. CM Punk and Bryan and (a little bit) of Ryder.
The crowd doesn't force Vince to push anyone. Look at Christian and Rob Van Dam. Yeah, they won a world title, a fast, cheap, uncredible title win, and it took them circumstances that if they hadn't happened, they never would've gotten those runs. They got almost nothing for their overness, in fact, they did get nothing for their overness because it wasn't their overness that got them pushed, it was other things.
Is Ambrose a future World Heavyweight Champion? For whatever the fuck that midcard world title is worth, yes, probably. Everybody except Barrett is gonna hold that title at some point in the future.
Is he a future WWE Champion? Most likely no.
Is he a future HUGE star? Most likely no.
Is that his fault? 100% no.

There needs to be a solid balance for wrestling to be great. They can't just trot out Miz clones and except people to love it, or they would go out of business. Both Ziggler and Bryan being main-eventers proves that the WWE actually DOES appreciate awesomeness.
Yeah, they appreciate in ring awesomeness, not general awesomeness. The problem is, in ring work is NOT entertaining, in ring work does NOT sell tickets, and the foundation of the WWE, what makes stars, real, giant stars, is mic skills, charisma, and stage presence. A formula they have completely thrown out the window, which is why the ratings are down, nobody watches anymore and after the network fails and costs them millions, along with their failures in pushing talent and with Vince getting older and increasingly reducing his role, their marketing will go to shit and they'll probably be out of business in 10 to 15 years.
Balance, you say? There is NO balance. It's 100% wrestling ability now, everybody is fucking BORING. They don't push people who can talk anymore, they just don't do it. This era SUCKS. Dean Malenko would be a world champion in today's WWE. Sad. They need a revamp of their strategy.
