We’ve covered how WWE apparently will not be reuniting The Shield this summer and one member that really seems to be working out well for is Dean Ambrose. The direction WWE wants to go with Ambrose was compared to Steve Austin in 1998 and Ambrose has received some praise backstage, likening his character to that of Stone Cold.
This interesting because a top WWE star reportedly pitched the idea of Ambrose being more like Austin to Vince McMahon. You may remember a while back we noted that a top talent and a producer complained about Ambrose not having a direction.
In what could be a related note, there’s a lot of talk that we will see a top WWE babyface turn heel soon due to the roster being heavy with babyfaces this summer. With Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Randy Orton, John Cena, Chris Jericho, possibly Seth Rollins and possibly Brock Lesnar working as top babyfaces, one of those is expected to turn.
