Let the race begin.
I can dig it. Its going to be interesting how WWE introduces Dean and builds the hype around him. Throughout this war of words, I've felt that if WWE had to take sides they'd choose Foley. Maybe I'm wrong?
Between Lesnar's legitimacy, and Paul Heyman's reference to the 'E being "image conscious", it makes me wonder where Ambrose stands. I guess there's a difference with Lesnar being legitimately violent (fair) and Foley being absolutely dangerous (too far). I do like this self-aware thing WWE seems to be doing between Punk Lesnar Heyman and Ambrose. Maybe Punk was right, maybe THIS is the reality era?
Foley has a great role to play in the induction of this new era. He'd like nothing more than to smile for the cameras sell a few books and forget about the generation he scarred. The 7 year olds don't think of Mankind falling from HIAC, they think of lovable Saint Mick. Foley is a metaphor for the WWE.
Ahh now its clearer, of course the WWE will side with Foley over Ambrose. They're the same thing, on the same page, both culpable, both criminals, both reformed, neither punished.
So how do you debut a guy with a counter-productive agenda? Leave that to WWE's resident Barney Phife; asleep on the job. The same guy that let Lesnar back in the WWE -- Big Johnny.
So with Johnny's incompetence, I could see #thanksmick working in debuting Dean Ambrose. Its seemingly harmless on the surface, and Mick would know the perfect way to react to it. He knows what #thanksmick means, the casuals don't.
Can't fucking wait for Ambrose to debut
