Exactly if that match was in WWE. It would have been some 3 to 5 minute match tossed in middle or Raw or Smackdown with Ambrose getting easy win.
I think that's the fun part of two different companies competing against each other. Guys can be jobbers or mid card guys in one company. Then go to another company and get new character be way better. Let's not forget Undertaker, Razor Ramon, Diesel and Triple H. Where nobodies in WCW until WWE turned them into stars. Even Stunning Steve and Cactus Jack were mid card guys in WCW. Yet they were two guys who had major impact in WWE winning Monday Night Wars against WCW.
After Double or Nothing people on this forum wanted them to sign Spears and I was like nahh. Why would they want WWE cast off who boring babyface who just says 10. Now I'm big fan of Spears and heel character AEW created with him. All of the sudden I realized he has a good look and does good promos. It's great to see AEW without even having tv yet. Make me excited for a Moxley/Spears match. When six months ago Ambrose/Dillenger would have been some throw away match I didn't care about.
