Re: Dean Ambrose Pre-Debut Discussion Thread
I don't really have an idea for his debut, per say, but I do have an idea for the character. First, he can't be scared of anything. He can lose matches, I just don't want him to be afraid of anything, especially if he should be. I also, and here's they key, don't want him to care about wins and loses. Or titles. I just want him to care about hurting/fucking with people. For example (and I'm not saying this should happen, but it illustrative my point) it would be awesome if he faced a still undefeated Ryback. It's a brutal match, and at one point Ambrose hits him with his finisher. He goes for the pin, but pulls Ryback's shoulder up before the three count. He stands up, grins, and exits the ring getting himself counted out. The next week he does an interview where he's asked about it and he says something to the effect of, "I didn't snap his winning streak. I poisoned it. Now whenever anyone talks about how he's undefeated they'll know, deep down, that he really isn't. They'll know that I could have beaten him and chose not to. And even if they don't know? Heh, well...HE'LL know." and then walk away.
