(Would "James Dean Ambrose" have worked? There has to be something here.)

Dean Ambrose stars in a WWE movie starting filming this month, according to a Variety article transparently planted by WWE Films. The movie is called "Lockdown", a TNA name. It's good cop Dean locked in a police department with evil cops, so it sounds especially cheap to film.

I hope it's good and actually sounds like a role that might work for him, but it also just occurred to me that the "filming this month" part is really strange. Wasn't the explanation for not doing Ambrose/Rollins last month was because they were stretching it out for three months? Filming a movie soon would seem to preclude Ambrose from being around for Night of Champions - there's now a chance he gets written out even as soon as SummerSlam, if you're predicting things - which would make the feud "no match -> heel wins in a match hurt by the stip -> we don't have a big blow off match for our important show????" Either Dean's going back and forth from the movie and WWE (which hasn't been happening with other recent movies) or someone's messed up here.

the Miz versus Dean Ambrose feud when Ambrose returns is going to be superb.

Does WWE Films make any money for the company, or does it just drain focus and resources from the main product which could make them more money if they put all their energy into it?

From what I've seen WWE Films has been picking up steam lately. Though more from distributing other movies than the ones with Superstars starring in them...

What about Oculus? That seems to have been the biggest film they produced/distributed. I have to chuckle at the fact that the Miz's "big Hollywood hit" that he keeps talking at is barely a break-even deal...
