Is the Ambrose hate more of a frustration with prop comic Dean than his in ring? Because the guy has worked 6 PPV main events this year and every one of those he delivered:

Fastlane vs Roman and Brock
Roadblock vs HHH
Battleground vs Roman and Seth
Backlash vs AJ
No Mercy (they called it the main event) vs AJ and Cena
TLC vs AJ

Every one of the matches I listed above were all 4+ stars and granted several were with AJ but he held his own nonetheless. Not to mention the guy had a better match with HHH than that trash Roman and HHH put on at WM. So if the argument is his in ring, sorry I just don't see it. He's not the most graceful performer I get it, but he's definitely a top performer in big matches.

Rob has more fatigue than I do, I see it as "not living up to his potential" as a character, and it's part him, mostly system.

What you're listing is the big matches. Week to week his offense and performances can come off as half assed. Big match Dean, I'm okay with. Week to week Dean to get me interested in him isn't always there with the exception of the occasional aside he may do.

Jeff made an outstanding point on this week's STR. Vince is only good when he's booking his core competency. Jeff suggested possibly "outsourcing" the task of handling his non-core competencies (women, small guys, anything not involving the basic hero's journey). As an alleged businessman, you would think Vince would go down this path. Outsourcing core competencies has become standard practice since it appeared in biz school literature in the 90s. This is why the cafeteria staff, security, physical plant, cleaning,some IT, etc at my fortune 500 insurance company are contractors.

You gotta wonder how much money Vince's ego is leaving on the table.

it was fun for us, but a lot of the fun I didn't record (my "never was" tv writing career and standups from the late 80s/mid 90s....I don't want to name names of people who treated me like crap, and no one's interested in Semp's mad-on for Mike Binder)

I loved the AMA episode a lot. The WWE wrestlers as SAG breakdown was great stuff, something you just don't hear a lot about but very interesting perspective into what could happen, why it might not, why it might not be as good as people think it might be etc.

But yeah that one portion hit hard. Especially as 30 year old looking at my life and wondering which direction to head at, a whole new path or just keeping trucking along. I have no idea, but that bit definitely made me think.

wasn't meant to, my point was I went after vanity and ended up hurting myself and often times judged my happiness on whether things were perfect.
