>While it was apparently always the plan of WWE to have Triple H win the Royal Rumble, having Ambrose as one of the final two is not what the company had planned. Ambrose in the final two was the “audible” that WWE called halfway through the match.
>According to Cageside Seats, one of the last two with Triple H was meant to be Roman Reigns, not Dean Ambrose. The crowd reaction to Reigns throughout the match is what caused WWE to change things up from the original plans and replace Reigns with Ambrose.
Does this mean Dean will get a babyface push instead of Roman, while Roman turns heel?
Would be nice. Dean would obviously work against the authority ala Steve Austin and overness
It wouldn't have mattered. He's not going to get over, they're past a year of trying. I could see him being a decent heel but that will depend on him actually giving a fuck and being aware of his role.
>not turning Roman and the Uso's heel
>not doing a double turn with the Uso's and the New Day
>not doing New Day vs the Rock's Cousins at Wrestlemania in a TLC match with the Tag Team belts on the line
This would literally be the best timeline
It's been over a year since he came back from injury and cut the first of multiple shit promos showing just how much he isn't ready.
Hopefully this audible shows that they're ready to end it.
>booed at rumble 2015
>booed at fast lane
>booed at mania
>doesn't really do anything for a while
>booed against braylmao
>cheers when Sheamus cashed in when his confetti reigned down after his biggest moment
>finally cheered because McMahon personally stepped in to get him over, also because everyone was injured
>back to being booed at the rumble of 2016
Ambrose' hair looks normal when he doesn't wet it. The past few smackdowns a lot of guys haven't had to wet their hair and it looks better. Is the wetting of the hair a safety precaution?
Literally everyone in the thread knew that.
That is literally the point of the audible.
For you to think you have caught onto some secret when it is so obvious that it goes without saying, makes you an idiot.
Kinda has that John Mclane die hard 1 look. Could be fun if they booked him like that.
>almost normalish dude
>in over his head underdog
>keeps pulling off last second witty/crazy shit to come out on top
Kinda like how he just won lms without calling every move he did the wacky something.
Yeah, but that shows they were doing it to protect Reigns and their desperation to get him over, rather than suddenly completely give up on him. I guarantee he will still go over at Mania.
They've really fucked up Roman Reigns. The guy isn't even bad. I like him in the ring, he just sucks on the mic so don't make him the main babyface, morons.
Remember how good he was fighting Brock at mania? That was awesome. But stop making him the main babyface. Fucking Dolph would be a better main baby face (though I'd way rather he went back to being a funny heel).
I wasn't real big on Ambrose being the main face, but it's looking better and better.
Fucking Titus O'neal would have worked better than Roman Reigns has. He actually has some personality in promos. Hell, Turn Big E face and have him be the top face.
Does the company need a "top face" anyway? What's wrong with an essemble top card? Brock would be the face of the company if he was just full time but think about how boring he would become in comparison to how cool he is now.
Injuries is really hurting them though. As good as New Day has been, they would have been way better with Cesaro+Kidd as longer running rivals.
I'd rather him be a bad guy, was a lot better than the crazy good guy gimmic imo
To be fair, Vince seems to be the one who is pushing Reigns. WWE is divided between Vince and Triple H
>Name anybody who's going to get consistently cheered against Ambrose right now.
Nobody is going to cheer *against* Ambrose, but put him against Seth or Brock and those guys will be cheered just as much.
It's just Roman who gets the boos. Even Bo Dallas is more over than Roman now.
>mfw 2/3rds of shield is responsible for the dwindling of viewers in the past 2 years
Rollins is cheered during his matches because he's awesome and does lots of moves that are over.
Rollins/Ambrose is the same as Ambrose/Owens. Nobody is booed. Slightly heckled maybe, but that's not heat.
