The Cashbox: Learning Dean Ambrose

Chris Cash

YOUTUBE'N IT UP!

I found this quite crazy – the first video I come across during my search is Ambrose's "I Won't Be Ignored" promo. It was very appropriate for the situation because, at the beginning of the video, he assures everyone that everything they hear about him is true. Yes, you should "believe the hype"!

I found this promo that shows a sicker, more sadistic side. I really liked it. Compelling. And funny — "You smell like the inside of my mom's purse. She used to hide Tootsie Rolls in there."

WRESTLING: Check out Dean Ambrose vs William Regal. I watched this from start to finish. I'm a huge fan of Regal. He's tough, physical and methodical. It seems like Ambrose adapted that same style in this match. I'm not sure if that's his normal style, his "WWE style", or if he changes the way he wrestles depending on his opponent. One thing this match does show me about Ambrose is the way he sells. Watch how he puts over the arm injury in this match. Really good stuff.

And YouTube suggested (on the right, you know) that I look at this one. It's a recent match from FCW where CM Punk, on his day off, visited FCW and ended up wrestling Ambrose. It had to be good, right!? Yes, it was. I really enjoyed this and the way Ambrose took the GTS was great. It didn't look as vicious as some we've seen before, but Ambrose went limp on it rather than jumping back or flopping around. Just a subtlety I really liked.
