Me neither. Whether he becomes the face of the company or not, he'll definitely be a top heel for sure.

Plant seeds that he's 'not quite right' and will do stuff against the wishes of his team mates. That is his character, after all, Ambrose is meant to be fucking crazy - the idea of him in a group at all still pisses me off.
I honestly don't trust Ambrose by himself in the hands of those idiotic writers. They're already starting to fuck them up as a group by not giving them a live follow up promo or any matches to further their story along.

I love the idea, but it might be a little early for that. Unless they just establish him being crazy and not trust-worthy without planning to break them up. They could plant the seeds slowly I guess. Hopefully when that happens, it won't be the case of Seth/Roman beating him up as heels leaving Dean as a face. That'd be terrifying. It'd be better if Ambrose comes up with crazy ideas when it comes to attacking wrestlers with the others shaking their heads and thinking it might be too much. Seth can be a little disturbed while Reign just doesn't give a shit. Then Seth moves on and Reigns acts as an enforcer for Ambrose until he leaves him at some point too. THHEN you have Ambrose free to feud with people.

better than the best.

Too soon. He's green as grass. Paired up between two veterans he has great chemistry with, he's not stinking up the joint. He's actually acquitting himself quite well. But he still needs experience talking live in front of a bigger-than-the-NXT-audience arena, wrestling by himself, all that stuff.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

I think it's too soon for this, too. We still don't know how these three became The Shield. They need to explore their chemistry and their bond before it starts being broken apart.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Ambrose shouldn't have an enforcer and, to be honest, I think Reigns will have more material success than Ambrose - even though Dean will most likely have far better feuds.
I think Ambrose should do something bad to Foley or some other part-timer that, as you said, leaves the others shocked. We can't have blood - nor would I want a guy like Foley to be blading at his age - but there's things they can do that will get just as big a reaction. Like the old Eddie Gilbert fireball trick, how long's it been since we've seen a Heel use a fireball?

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

But Reigns isn't Ambrose's enforcer. They've been written as equals - alongside Rollins. That's why I hope there isn't a 'higher power' in the mix for the storyline. The idea of three men standing as equals, a collective with no one pulling their strings, is fascinating. How do they make their decisions? How did they decide their values?

I need to know these things before we even start discussing breaking up The Shield.

You know what? I think they need to attack Punk.
How long has it been since we had heels who go after everyone? The only example I can remember is when the Nexus attacked random people, forcing The Miz to play the babyface role on House shows by teaming up with Cena against them.

He could only do it till he shorty moves on too. But the idea isn't that he'll be second to Ambrose, just when Seth is gone, it'd be unatural of Reigns to just walk away too without any good reasons (Unless he confeses his love to Seth as we've predicted all this time!)... so he'd be fine with Dean's crazy ideas, and he can be put over as a beast.

Btw, Dean is limitless. Even Ross said it himself....so one shouldn't limit they guy as just DEAN AMBROSE FROM FCW, ya know. Now he's surrounded by all these big stars in WWE, so they should get creative with him. Maybe having an enforce/valet/tag team (like Sami Callihan) or whatever can be good. I think anything can work with the guy.

better than the best.
