Ambrose isn't going to debut with AJ, and if he does it will suck and probably ruin him. He's also not going to win a title on his first night. I wish people would STFU about these two scenarios, neither of them suit his character and TBH they would be disastrous ways for him to start.
I'm expecting a debut either next week, or the day after Summerslam.
I don't really care about pairing him w/ AJ. To me, any oppurtunity to do that has now passed and really wouldn't make sense at this point.
Let me go in depth w/ my scenario: Santino comes out and does his usual shtick for the crowd. He introduces a never before seen superstar (Ambrose) from Cinncinatti and says he is going to offer a title shot against him tonight. The jobber (Ambrose) is treated as a punching bag and Santino sets up for the Cobra. He attempts the Cobra but Ambrose blocks it, gets a sick look on his face, and proceeds to dominate Santino. Ambrose does his act and then eventually finishes him off w/ his finisher (whatever it will be). Ambrose wins the US title, is given a good spot on TV, and beats a popular face to get heat w/ the crowd. He could even do a promo after the match or next week. It would be the normal Ambrose promo, basically saying he's taking over the world.
You may disagree, but I think that would be a good way to start his career. I mean it's been done before. That's how Santino debuted like 5 years ago.
The Foley angle is as good as dead. If it was ever going to happen, it would have been tonight. It's dead. It would have been a great story, but I doubt Foley would be able to deliver in a match.
I wouldn't mind seeing a feud w/ Kane either, just b/c thier characters would mesh so well.
He's not coming up ever anymore.
He doesn't even travel with them doing live dark matches.
Vince probably has never even heard of him yet.
At least your being optimistic Mr. BrianAmbrose.
