He looks so stoned here. I think part of the improvement in his physique could be attributed to cutting the cheetos out of his diet.
If you're referring to him smoking weed, he didn't(doesn't).
I listened to an interview with him a while ago and he said that everyone always thinks that he's a pot head because of the way he looks/talks and all his friends are but he's tried it and didn't like it.
I'm guessing that he's been told to tone up and because he isn't doing that many NXT shows, he has time too.
how did Edge debut? Was it not in that vampire thing? I can't recall..
Vignettes aired of Edge beating up homeless people in the street, strange. For Ambrose though you'd have him being the sort of loner on the street walking around, you'd hear his voice over the vignette saying that he is coming etc.
Then show him perhaps sitting up in the rafters like Edge did whilst having people like JBL or JR who actually put over talent say there is the hottest free agent in the wrestling industry right now, or something along those lines.
It gets him in the light of television without having him involved in squash matches like Cesaro, Tensai, Brodus Clay and Ryback got.
