The dude's 6'4", taller than Cena, HBK, Austin, and Punk. Ambrose is awesome on the mic, and has so much time to improve anyway (he's 27; most guys become main eventers in their 30's). He's lean, but so is Punk, HBK, and Austin.

I know its crazy to talk yrs ahead about main eventers, but the reality is that non-main eventers are the ones getting promoted to the main event. And, guys like Angle, Lesnar, and Sheamus won world titles within a yr of their debut, so there's no forced waiting period to pay your dues if WWE thinks the guy's ready. How many non-main eventers are ahead of Ambrose? Ziggler, Sandow? I think he's ahead of Cesaro, and I'm a huge Cesaro fan. Maybe he's years away, I don't know, but the dude's incredible and unique. I'm convinced the problem facing wrestling is that its all been done before, nothing is shocking. Ambrose looks and sounds unlike any big star that's come before him, and the dude's just scary.
I'm only speaking in parody form of what some posters claim with their unusual/Vince's superstar model mindset.

Agreed about wrestling having a hard time doing something completely original. The key is new workers in the mix. Which, Ambrose would fit the mold for. Combined with his interesting and different approach to the biz for WWE. That alone has him suited for stardom. We'll have to wait and see how his career plays out of course. Not saying he'll be the face of the company or something, but he could possibly be huge. Or better way to word it is he's talented enough to be given the ball and possibly run with it.

Re: Could Dean Ambrose be the face of the company?

It's a possibility. It depends how WWE would use him. Just let him loose with his promos and not limit him of what he does best. I always think that his best promos are the ones that are in backstage or anywhere outside of the arena. Maybe when he leave the Shield, he can still do those self distorted camera promos but by himself bu there's nothing wrong with some live mic promos either. I think thats all he really needs to succeed to become a top star.

Re: Could Dean Ambrose be the face of the company?

Nope. He is good and all, but he doesnt have the look. Look in the past, we have had guys like Hogan, Stone Cold, The Rock, Sammartino, Cena and somehow Bret.

Hogan, personafied the all american at his time.
Stone Cold, Was the american badass redneck.
Cena, Is that american patriot solder guy.

That´s what Vince looks for. Someone who can personify USA and on that be muscles.

Punk and Stone Cold look like psycho/badasses. Also Triple H has an incredible physique, but he's no pretty boy, and that was part of what made him a great heel and face. Honestly I never think wrestlers are held back by their look unless they're REALLY small or their face just makes them look weak. I hate to say it but I think that means Daniel Bryan, which is why he has the massive beard, cuz w/o it he just screams "average joe, not a tough guy." Dean Ambrose may not look like a hulked out monster, but he does look like a psycho, and he plays that character well. I really admire the guy, his face is kinda 'ugly' and he's developed the character for it.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle

Re: Could Dean Ambrose be the face of the company?

Nope.

He looks like a...idk how to describe it, he looks like a heel, he'll be in Punk's shoes one day.

Face of the company would probably go to the guys who are still down at NXT, guys like Curtis, Bateman, Ohno, or even Seth Rollins.

No Ryback's going to be the face of the company.

I agree with you. I dont think they look for a psycho looking guy as face of the company.

Re: Could Dean Ambrose be the face of the company?

Unfortunately not. Ambrose has charisma to spare, is a strong worker and definitely has that intangible 'it factor', but it's a different kind of 'it factor' from guys like Cena/Rock/Austin/Hogan. Not to say he couldn't be at main event level or carry one of the top-tier belts, but he'll never be the guy that sells ridiculous amounts of merchandise and is a hero to the casuals and kids.

The argument that 'you can't hold talent like that down' is completely invalid because if there is one thing that WWE are guilty of it's dropping the ball on talented wrestlers. There is an endless list of guys that were the total package: incredible in-ring work, the look, brilliant mic work but ruined with bad booking or backstage politics.

Re: Could Dean Ambrose be the face of the company?

Dean Ambrose is destined for great things. He just has far, far too much talent for the E to piss it away.

I think at some point Dean will be one of the major players, perhaps not as a "babyface", but I could see hum getting massively over as a tweener. He honestly screams WWE champion to me
