What the WWE has been missing. Photo courtesty of wwe-zone.ru
On March 12, 2012, I posted an article calling Dean Ambrose a future threat. With the help of my brother, I compared him to everyone from Brian Pillman to The Dark Knight's Joker.
I also compared his potential to that of Mick Foley.
It seems the future arrived early, and the threat may not be far behind. Guess who Ambrose confronted on WrestleMania weekend.
That's right, Mr. Mick Foley himself.
Isn’t it the perfect place to launch Ambrose?
WrestleMania has become the “Shh. Not so loud. Be on your best behavior. There are non-wrestling fans watching!” weekend.
So, there is no better time to bring in the clowns. Dressed spiffy to get in the door, a well-dressed psycho clown.
Even when I can’t hear Ambrose in the video, he makes me uncomfortable. Notice how close he gets to Foley, how he whispers in his ear. Notice how he keeps throwing out the word accountable without need to explain what or why.
This excites me because it tells me WWE understands Ambrose's character, and hopefully they will do nothing to stifle it.
I hope they keep the word accountable involved.
Guys like Foley, who made his way as Cactus Jack, Mankind and Dude Love, but now plays the writer/activist Foley, could use a mad man to teach them accountability.
WWE is big and powerful and unaccountable.
But if they let Ambrose be Ambrose, all the world may be paying for their sins soon. Whether they committed any or not.
Along with guys like Seth Rollins, the future of WWE is now as accessible as the past and present. And that only leaves one group.
