I like to think that (in the long run) Ambrose would 'stray' off their goal and keep beating up people "for fun" in a psychotic manner, and this would make Rollins break up and turn face because they're no longer doing the "right thing". Dunno how to get Reigns involved here though.

Just watched some promo's and in ring action of Reigns. Anyone who doesn't see him shooting to the stratosphere under the guidance of Vince is foolish. The sheer strength and athleticism of the guy is amazing for a guy his size. His promo's haven't been terrible, there is something there though. He has the movie star looks as well.

Plus, I want Dean Ambrose to look like a bum again. That was a great look for him and his best character work will be under that gimmick, is it so much to ask for?
I get what you're saying. But debuting him as a "security guard" in the highest profile you could be in at this point in time is better than debuting w/ a few vignettes and months of squash matches before getting anything really serious. This allows Ambrose to be in a prominent spot and get enough TV time to establish his character (same goes for Rollins & Reigns). The Shield won't last forever (I can't see it going beyond a year, if that), but it's a great way to debut all 3 men and make them look like stars. Even Rollins (who is much better as a face) will benefit from this much more than being debuted and squashing people for months.

Agreed on the bum look. At least stop slicking the hair back. That is why everyone think the guy is balding. To me, the guy just has an abnormally large forehead.

Doesn't matter. True greatness always rises to the top. Might aswell jump on the bandwagon now.

Not sure how Reigns would fit into this though.
Depending on how long they want to stretch The Shield out, I would like to see Rollins and Ambrose break away from the group, feud over a mid card title, and settle it at WM 29 or 30. Ambrose and Rollins play so well against each other, it would be great to see it on TV.

I would have Reigns go off on his own and prove himself w/ Rollins & Ambrose.

He came across as the guy who isn't serious. He's along for the ride. He looks the most 'human' of the group. His lack of serious attitude to The Shield's 'message' makes me think he'll get kicked out eventually and continue as a singles competitor. Being a little unhinged is okay, but he can't overdo it like he did developmental (as cool as it was).

The Main Event gimmicks are the 'human' gimmicks. The gimmicky stuff is good, but it's very rare you get a consistent run at the top. Only Taker has managed that. The rest: SCSA, Rock, Hogan, Cena, Orton, Punk, JBL etc have all been realistic characters rather than gimmicks.

Ambrose will do well, but I think he'll be the guy that easily travels up and down the card, much like Bryan does currently, or how Angle, Eddie and Jericho used to.
I disagree. When people compare Ambrose to The Joker, they don't mean the cartoon version. They mean the Heath Ledger, sadistic but calculated kind of Joker. Ambrose's promos or character don't revolve around the supernatural. He takes stories that could happen in real life and tells those stories to the audience.

That kind of story telling and mannerisms that he was born w/ (you can' teach what he does) is what will make him a main event level star.
