Dean Ambrose Speaks On MITB PPV, U.S. Title, People Who Help Him In WWE
The following are highlights from a recent interview with WWE Superstar and current WWE United States Champion Dean Ambrose:
On his first Money In The Bank ladder match: “I feel like I’m stepping into a very unpredictable situation with six other extremely capable, extremely talented, extremely smart and dangerous individuals. A lot can happen both bad and good. Unfortunately for them, none of them are as smart or as dangerous as me and I’m going to make sure that I’m going to be the one walking out with the Money in the Bank briefcase.”
On working for CZW prior to WWE: “I was in a lot of really crazy matches and a lot of stuff that you’ll never ever see on WWE television. I put my body through a lot of abuse for very little money for a long time.”
On not being intimidated when he first arrived in WWE: “I wasn’t intimidated when I got to WWE. I kind of felt like that I had put myself through so much to get here that there isn’t anybody that’s going to take this away from me. I knew what I was capable of. I had the confidence in myself to just know that I’m going to be the guy here and that I am good as anybody else here.”
On improving since joining WWE: “I feel like I’m 10 times better of a wrestler than I was when I first got here. You have so many good brains to pick here in the dressing room with Hall-of-Fame guys. I can pick Arn Anderson’s brain or William Regal’s brain or Jamie Noble. Joey Mercury is a guy that I learned so much from during my time in FCW. He’s one of the smartest wrestling minds that you’ll ever find anywhere and me and him had a really good connection and I was able to really learn a lot and step up my game from working with him.”
On his current reign as WWE U.S. Champion: “It’s something you don’t fully appreciate until the moment happens and you grab that belt and hold it up and you feel the energy in the audience and it overtakes you. I want everybody to step up their game to try to get me. I want challengers and I want big fights. If I have to pick my own challengers I will. I don’t believe the championship makes the wrestler I think the wrestler makes the championship.”
