Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present

At first this wasn't exactly what I was expecting to write about following the Royal Rumble or the Raw that follows. However, based on recent reports it seems like Dean Ambrose has officially given his notice a few weeks ago and will walk away from the company after Wrestlemania. Though this doesn't mean that right after Ambrose will be leaving the promotion and it is more likely that he will be walking away from WWE by the end of April. Since his arrival in the promotion Dean has become a top star in the promotion, but he has seen a toned down character from the one he held on the independent circuit.
Upon arriving on the main roster from Florida Championship Wrestling he would make an incredible impact as a member of The Shield faction. Though at first nobody would've expected The Shield to have been booked the way they were so quickly based on the companies prior track record with booking young talent. Either way though The Shield would become major stars very early on and if we fast forward seven years it is crazy to see all they've accomplished. Ambrose has pretty much done it all in the WWE and even though I don't think he has reach his potential I don't think that is really on him.
Overall I think there were a lot of limits placed on the former Jon Moxley and he wasn't allowed to have the freedom he had before on the Indies. Now I know the best talent is able to adapt to any situation or environment and I don't mean to insist that Dean was incapable of doing so I just think he had a problem fitting into the system. In my opinion Ambrose fit into the system early as a fresh talent finding his footing, but I do think his early run shows that he is much better as bad guy then a good guy. The reality is that Dean's gimmick is far too out there and split from his comfort zone.
