That said, and I think it was Cagney that said it, his rise, hype, and corresponding fall is like an extreme version of Adam Pineault.

Spot. On.

I grew up with Pineault(literally) and it's honestly the EXACT same situation as watching Ambroz this year. Now...just waiting until Seth cracks from the pressure in Gopherville and heads to the Dub...lol.
