Certain times in life something can happen that really puts life into perspective and that is the best way to describe what happened Monday Night on Raw. Fact is that Roman Reigns announced that the leukemia that he fought 11 years ago is back and that he will have to step away from wrestling for treatment. I want to mention that this is an extremely tough subject and I will not be writing an article on this subject, because it is a hard topic to write about. Either way though I again want to offer prayers, positive thoughts and good vibes to the "Big Dog." We all know that you will beat this again and not just beat it, but you will kick cancers ass just like you did before. I know I speak for a number of fans when I say I can't wait to see you back on Raw in the future.
With the hard part out of the way I wanted to focus on the last segment of the night which saw the turn so many of us have been excited for and waiting to see for years. Following his and Rollins title victory things suddenly changed when Ambrose attacked Rollins with a savage beat down. Ambrose would hit the dirty deeds twice on Rollins once on the floor and would leave his former partner laying on the outside. The reality is that I don't think that this turn was planned tonight, but they went for it because of the impact that it would have as opposed to doing it on a random episode.
In my opinion Mike Johnson from PWInsider said it best: "The turn was unexpected that is what a heel turn is suppose be as it is suppose to make you mad. Your not suppose to like a heel turn as it is meant to do the opposite and should get you mad to the point of where you want the wronged good guy to get revenge. I think that some might believe Ambrose turning should've been held off, but the reality is I don't think the company could have picked a better night to do it. During his time on the "Indies" Dean Ambrose was an evil heel similar to the one Sami Callahan is currently with Impact. I don't think that Dean will go back that persona as the level of violence he was able to display in CZW is nowhere near what he can do in WWE. With that being said I'm unsure what to expect from Dean in the future, but I will admit I'm finally interested in WWE again.
Overall for once the company did a heel turn the right way as Ambrose I think will have a tremendous amount of heat with the fans and will be legitimately booed, which by the way is what makes a heel a heel. Truth is though I would've liked to see them wait a little longer for the turn, but I do understand why they did it on Monday and am very excited to see if they keep Ambrose as hot as they've kept Tomasso Ciampa. Even though I know they will not take my advice, but if they did I would say toss everything you think you should do with Rollins & Ambrose out the window as this feud should be booked unlike anything else the company has put together in years.
