The WWE introduced viewers to three new, relatively unknown superstars at the Survivor Series pay-per-view.

Well, relatively unknown if you haven't been a follower of Ring Of Honor or NXT.

Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns are now part of the WWE main roster, and they could be a breath of fresh air, as the WWE is in desperate need of new stars.

Reigns is a bit of a surprise to be part of the group as he may have needed some more seasoning in NXT, but he also has the family background in the business (he is the son of Sika of the Wild Samoans) that will have surely prepared him for where he is now.

Rollins currently holds the NXT championship and has become a star in the developmental league, but indy wrestling fans will certainly remember him as Tyler Black, a former ROH World champion and two-time Tag Team champion.

However, it is Dean Ambrose who should be the clear-cut leader of this group.

Why did these guys decide to "invade" the WWE at Survivor Series? That remains to be answered, but Ambrose will surely be able to tell the WWE Universe.

For those unfamiliar with Ambrose, among his many titles won on the independent scene, he is a two-time Combat Zone Wrestling heavyweight champion.

He is also about as good on the microphone as anyone currently in the business.

Ambrose combines great technique in the ring—one that brings with it an old-school feel—with his tremendous promo and talking skills.

To this point, the first target of the invaders' aggression has been Ryback. It doesn't hurt Ryback's stock, because it is taking three men to put him down, and at the same time, it allows these three newcomers to be introduced in a big way.

Monday night on RAW in Lafayette, Louisiana, Michael Cole is scheduled to interview the trio. This will be the first chance for them to speak on television, and Ambrose will certainly take advantage of that.

This group and this storyline have the potential to be very big for WWE, especially if they continually introduce stars from NXT, and it will be Ambrose that puts it over the top and solidifies them.
