Howard Finkel, Joey Styles, and other WWE staff give their opinions on who will be victorious in Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens for the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

@HowardFinkel: I’m truly torn picking a winner; I have the utmost respect for both participants. That said, I’m giving the nod to Dean Ambrose, just on a hunch. I’ve called him “Mr. Perpetual Motion” in the past, and I believe Ambrose will have more gas left in his tank to overcome Owens, becoming the new Intercontinental Champion in the process. WINNER: Dean Ambrose

@JoeyStyles: I look for this to be a smash-mouth meeting that will end with neither Dean Ambrose’s Dirty Deeds nor Kevin Owens’ Pop-Up Powerbomb. Rather, the prizefighter will win with a schoolboy and a handful of jeans before getting out of Boston faster that the patriots who dumped England’s tea into the harbor. WINNER: Kevin Owens

Greg Adkins: Dad vs. Mad? Dean Ambrose may be The Lunatic Fringe, but he’s not deranged enough to underestimate Kevin Owens a second time. For his part, the pugnacious brawler seems to have figured out in short order how to not only win titles, but how to keep a firm grip on them with power and poise. In this case, father really does know best. WINNER: Kevin Owens

Jeff Laboon: Dean Ambrose beat Kevin Owens in Survivor Series’ WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament, and there’s no reason he can’t do it again. Ambrose will rise to the occasion with the Intercontinental Championship on the line. WINNER: Dean Ambrose

John Clapp: Like a modern-day version of Dick Murdoch vs. Terry Funk, this match doesn’t need ladders, chairs or tables to be a demolition derby. Haymakers will fly, and Ambrose will endure more of them, and better, than Owens. WINNER: Dean Ambrose

Dean Ambrose: 3, Kevin Owens: 2

Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens vs. Dean Ambrose

Kevin Owens insists the historical significance of the Intercontinental Title begins and ends with his current championship reign. Dean Ambrose will look to make Owens’ reign just that — history — when he challenges him for the title at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs.

The Lunatic Fringe earned the opportunity at WWE TLC by defeating Tyler Breeze and four-time Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler in an action-packed No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match on the Thanksgiving edition of SmackDown. Just days before that, Ambrose topped Owens, too, defeating the self-proclaimed prizefighter in the semifinal round of the WWE World Heavyweight Title Tournament at Survivor Series.

Will the result be the same at WWE TLC, when Owens’ title is at stake? KO has previously suggested that while Ambrose’s crazed persona is nothing more than a facade, his own body of work is replete with authentic and unhinged acts of lunacy. Yet, Ambrose — an unpredictable, unrelenting tornado of punches and kicks inside the ring — has proven he will not shy away from extreme measures when he deems them necessary.

Both Superstars are likely to be bruised and battered following their showdown at WWE TLC, but which one will leave Boston’s TD Garden with the Intercontinental Title? The answer will reveal itself at WWE’s demolition derby, WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, on Sunday, Dec. 13, only on WWE Network.

Who will survive this Sunday’s tournament and be crowned WWE World Heavyweight Champion? Howard Finkel, Joey Styles and the staff give their picks with their official Survivor Series predictions!

Dean Ambrose vs. Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens (WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament Semifinals)

@HowardFinkel: I’m truly torn in picking a winner here. These two Superstars have both earned my respect with their styles and never-say-die attitudes that they possess. So now push has come to shove for me to make a decision: Dean Ambrose to prevail … barely! WINNER: Dean Ambrose

@JoeyStyles: I am a huge fan of both Owens and Ambrose and have been since before they were on WWE’s radar. Both of these men have shed blood, sweat and tears on the indies for much, much less than the most coveted title in sports-entertainment history. I can only imagine what they will do to themselves and each other on Sunday to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. As combustible as these two men are, I don’t expect a match as much as I expect a fight all over the floor, resulting in Ambrose advancing by count out or disqualification. WINNER: Dean Ambrose

Anthony Benigno: This is a dark horse pick for match of the night. In a battle between two bulls, Ambrose ekes out the victory and goes head-to-head with his brother in the finals. WINNER: Dean Ambrose

Ryan Pappolla: Kevin Owens and Dean Ambrose are a study in contrast in every area imaginable, except one — the level of skill they bring to the ring. Expect several heart-stopping close-calls and a ton of high impact maneuvers. In fact, expect one too many — The Lunatic Fringe will take one risk he shouldn’t have and find himself KO’d. WINNER: Kevin Owens

Bobby Melok: Kevin Owens may be the most confident Superstar heading into Survivor Series. The reigning Intercontinental Champion has made it clear that he plans on adding WWE’s richest prize to his résumé, and there’s no doubt he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make that a reality. WINNER: Kevin Owens.

Dean Ambrose: 3, Kevin Owens: 2

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament Final

@HowardFinkel: (Dean Ambrose vs. Alberto Del Rio) Quite simply put, if this final pairing goes according to my thoughts, then we are to be in for a whale of a finals match! I feel that Dean Ambrose will have more gas left in the tank, and will find a way to upend Del Rio, and become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. WINNER: Dean Ambrose

@JoeyStyles: (Roman Reigns vs. Dean Ambrose) Best friends, brothers in arms — bull! Roman Reigns may be a man of principle who refuses any and all shortcuts, but Ambrose isn’t. When Reigns least expects it, Ambrose is going to attack him with a barbarism worthy of the thumbtack, barbed wire, light bulb and power tool-filled death matches that made him the madman he is. Still, while the friendship between the two former Shield teammates may not survive, Reigns will, en route to becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion. WINNER: Roman Reigns

Anthony Benigno: (Roman Reigns vs. Dean Ambrose) Brother against brother, lunatic vs. big dog, jilted contender vs. jilted contender. Who wins? Tough to say. I’m going with Reigns, but by a hair. WINNER: Roman Reigns

Ryan Pappolla: (Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens) It seems simply predestined that these two young, rising, polar opposite figures clash with it all on the line this Sunday. For as much as Reigns has been through and survived since falling short of the title at WrestleMania 31, the logical conclusion to make would be that he finally prevails here. Nope. The Prizefighter wins the ultimate prize at Survivor Series. WINNER: Kevin Owens

Bobby Melok: (Kevin Owens vs. Alberto Del Rio) Roman Reigns seems destined to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title, Ambrose has promised anarchy if he wins the title and Kevin Owens simply expects to walk out of Atlanta as champion. But Alberto Del Rio is the only one out of the four remaining in the tournament who has been a World Champion. That experience will prove to be the difference, as the young nation of MexAmerica will have its first World Champion when Del Rio defeats Owens. WINNER: Alberto Del Rio

Roman Reigns: 2, Dean Ambrose: 1, Kevin Owens: 1, Alberto Del Rio: 1

Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens (WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament Semifinals)

Having made it to the final four of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament, Dean Ambrose and Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens will fight tooth and nail this Sunday at Survivor Series. When the dust settles, either The Lunatic Fringe or WWE’s Prizefighter will advance to the tournament final later in the night, where he will vie for his first WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

The semifinal matchup pits two of WWE’s least predictable and most out-of-control Superstars against each other. Ambrose and Owens met on the Nov. 5 edition of SmackDown in a non-title contest, with The Lunatic Fringe’s unconventional, all-or-nothing attack causing Owens to flee through the crowd and voluntarily take a count-out loss. Such a result is unlikely to repeat itself this Sunday, when nothing less than sports-entertainment immortality — in the form of the WWE World Heavyweight Title — is on the line.

Ambrose advanced to the semifinals by defeating WWE newcomer Tyler Breeze in round one and Dolph Ziggler in round two. After the second tournament win, he vowed to turn WWE into the “Ambrose Asylum” with a WWE World Heavyweight Championship win at Survivor Series.

Owens, meanwhile, beat Titus O’Neil in the opening round before triumphing over Neville in the second round. Much as he had done with other Superstars involved in the tournament, Triple H approached Owens after his quarterfinal win and congratulated him, prompting some in the WWE Universe to speculate that the WWE COO is hedging his bets after Roman Reigns refused to “play ball” with The Authority.

Will Kevin Owens add yet another championship — the top title in WWE, no less — to his possession at Survivor Series? Or will The Lunatic Fringe stop Owens in his tracks and advance to the tournament final? Watch the historic conclusion of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament this Sunday, live and only on the award-winning WWE Network.

Before WWE Hell in a Cell takes over on WWE Network, Randy Orton & Dean Ambrose will team to battle Bray Wyatt’s gargantuan disciples, Luke Harper & Braun Strowman, on the Hell in a Cell Kickoff.

The Viper became unwittingly swept up in Ambrose and Roman Reigns’ war with The Wyatt Family last month when Wyatt, Harper & Strowman ambushed him in an effort to thin out Ambrose and Reigns’ options for allies.

With The Big Dog set to fight The Eater of Worlds inside Hell in a Cell on Oct. 25, The Lunatic Fringe and WWE’s Apex Predator are left to form a potent, if makeshift, force against The New Face of Destruction and The New Face of Desolation. The firepower of an Orton/Ambrose combination is not in question, though it remains to be seen whether the headstrong Viper and the out-of-control Ambrose can match the solidary of Wyatt’s swamp monsters.

Few tag teams in WWE history have been as terrifying or menacing as Harper & Strowman. Harper, a former Intercontinental Champion who possesses the unwavering, unsettling stare of a madman, has always been a dangerous entity; now, he has the immense backup of Strowman, a refrigerator with a head who rag-dolls foes into unconsciousness.

Can the unbridled intensity of Ambrose & Orton overcome the sheer mass of Bray Wyatt’s sinister henchmen? Or will The New Face of Destruction and The New Face of Desolation ravage WWE’s heroes in black?

Watch the monstrous tag battle when the WWE Hell in a Cell Kickoff streams live Sunday, Oct. 25, at 7 ET/4 ET on the award-winning WWE Network, as well as on, the WWE App, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Pheed and Google.

October 13th, 2015 have an interview up with Dean where he shares his thoughts on being under constant scrutiny in the ‘Reality Era’ of wrestling, how he hates the word “selfie”, and more, check it out!

I recently met WWE superstar Dean Ambrose at a WWE 2K16 event, and the first thing I noticed was just how alike he was in demeanor to his larger than life, on-screen persona. It’s much more muted, of course–there’s little outward sign of the ‘Lunatic Fringe’ here–but I was struck with how easily I could correlate the real person in front of me to the WWE performer and athlete. They say wrestlers are best when they play themselves, only with the volume turned way up, and Ambrose certainly fits that bill.

In our brief conversation we chatted about being a gamer, and what his thoughts were about being under constant scrutiny in the ‘Reality Era’ of wrestling. His responses were, to put it simply, perfect Ambrose.

[GameSpot] You’re wrestling in an era where secrets are much harder to keep thanks to the internet. There’s a lot of constant scrutiny on you guys. How do you cope with all that attention all the time?
[Dean Ambrose] It’s the way of the world today. A lot of people bring it on themselves–I’m not a social media guy, I don’t go on social media at all. If you don’t know me personally then you don’t get to talk to me ever. As far as I’m concerned what you see on the screen, on Monday night RAW, is the only access you get to me. So I live a pretty stress free scenario as far as that’s concerned. The internet, it is what it is. As far as letting secrets go, I find it very easy keeping secrets. I just don’t tell anyone if I don’t trust them. And the circle of people I trust is very, very small. I just keep it real like that and it makes it easier for me.

It’s a wider issue that affects the WWE in general, though. For example, someone sees Undertaker at the airport, takes a picture, and then suddenly the finish for a match that night is ruined. Do you think think this overall scrutiny makes it harder for you to present a product?
Yeah, a lot of fans kinda take the magic away. But it’s been like this for years now, where they dig and search for every little bit of info and spend so much time deciphering everything and overthinking things. That’s just an outlet for their passion for wrestling, but it does take away the magic sometimes, so I almost wish people would stop doing that. But if you take a picture of somebody and post it online, you’re an asshole.

I hate having my picture taken in general. And if I’m not allowing it… and it’s just gotten worse over time. I don’t understand pictures at airports. And I hate the word selfie. Any man that uses it needs to reevaluate a lot of their life.

I can’t imagine, I can’t get in the mind of a wrestling fan who wants to break news that spoils a surprise for somebody. Would you want a surprise spoiled? Say you saw Sting at the airport and tipped everybody off that Sting was going to make an appearance that night, and then you ruin the surprise for people who went out of the way not to get the surprise ruined. Would you want your surprised ruined? I’d be, “Don’t tell me, don’t tell me who you saw at the airport.” I like to live a spoiler-free life.

Does it ever make you wish you wrestled in a different era?
Oh yeah. Professional wrestling as I imagined it when I set out to be a pro wrestler is not the same thing as sports entertainment today. There are times I wished I was in 1983 in the Crockett territory. But the WWE today is also something that’s never been done before. Everything from the WWE network to video games, to be part of something like that and all the craziness that is the WWE today, is also cool to be a part of.

It’s not just a wrestling business now. WWE is an institution in entertainment. It truly is now like the NFL, the brand is there with them. It’s on a level it’s never been before.

So are you a gamer yourself?
I’m not a gamer in the traditional sense, but I’ve played almost every wrestling game there was. To be a part of this one–I mean, the fans are going to love it. It’s very cool to be a part of that–you can play this game at such a realistic level, and it’s such an encompassing WWE experience for a fan, that you can play this for hours and hours and never get sick of it.

DeanAmbroseInterview-747x309 have an interview up with Dean, discussing fighting the Terminator, Stone Cold and more, check it out!

Last week we traveled to San Francisco to go hands on with 2K Sports’ next iteration of their WWE 2K series. While we outlined our experience with the game here, we also got the opportunity to talk with Superstar Dean Ambrose. Here’s how it all went down.

[Hardcore Gamer] So, hard hitting question first: are you a gamer?
[Dean Ambrose] In the traditional sense, no. I’m a huge wrestling fan, and a WWE fan — so it’s easy for me to get lost in all the stuff and options you can play in WWE 2K16 — but I like the old-timey games; you know, Street Fighter, Double Dragon, Sonic the Hedgehog. But even now, if [a game’s fun] I can get into it.

So do you play WWE games?
Yeah, I’ve had the opportunity to play 2K16 before it comes out, so I was able to explore around and see all the different options. You know, it’s the biggest roster in a video game ever. It has the best graphics and is the most realistic experience and has the most in-depth career mode of any wrestling game ever. So there’s just so much stuff to explore. So if you’re a WWE fan, it’s incredible. There’s a whole universe that you can practically crawl into and look around. It would probably would take years to see and do all the stuff in the game.

What’s the collaboration like with the developers? Are you flown in to consult about how your character looks, or the moves your character does in the game?
Not really. It’s just like, one day it magically appears, and that’s what’s freaky about it. It’s like they take you and put your soul directly into the game. It’s like the Mortal Kombat guy, they steal your soul and stick it into the game. You feel almost a little taken advantage of, like “whoa, what happened?”– because they have everything down to the way you walk, the way you throw punches… ticks you didn’t even realize you had and they somehow put them in the game. Everybody talks, walks, looks and wrestles exactly like they do in real life. It’s like watching Monday Night Raw, but being able to control the action in the ring. It’s getting scary how real these games are becoming. You know, this is how Terminator started in the first place.

It has to be a little surreal to see and play as yourself in a game. That would feel a little weird to me.
Yeah, I felt like that would be a little weird, too — to play yourself — so I always pick somebody else. I did fight against myself, though. But, when I play against the Terminator — which I plan on doing, because you can do that if you pre-order before October 27 — I want to play as myself because I don’t trust anybody but myself to fight against the Terminator.

Fair enough! If you could have a dream match with any of the wrestlers in the game, that didn’t include you, who would it be?
Hm, that’s a real good question. I would put Daniel Bryan and Bret Hart in a submission match. I mean, that’s the beauty of the game: you can have any match-up, from any era, past, present or future. You can have an NXT guy against a current guy; a current guy against a Hall of Fame guy; a Hall of Fame’r verse an NXT guy…you can literally do whatever you want. So, it’s just the biggest bounty of dream matches you could ever imagine. And it’s all so realistic — almost like you’re really watching it play out live.

The graphics are especially fantastic this year. If you could redo one of your matches in this game that you’ve had, which would it be?
Like redo a real-life match in the game? Oh, that’s a really interesting question… Hm… That’s an interesting question. You know, I don’t like to live… err, I don’t like to look back and live life with regrets. I wonder… Hm… I would go back and redo Wrestlemania 31. The only thing I would change would be, after I fell through the ladder and almost died, I would tell the doctors to not staple my head shut until we got to the back. Because they initially thought I was going to get back up and finish the match. And I had a huge cut on my head. And so they just gave me emergency staples on the spot, without telling me… They were just like, “We have to staple your head,” and I said “What?” and [makes staple gun sounds]. And that was worse than actually… than the actual fall I had to take myself. It’s just… I wasn’t expecting it. So then I had to get those pulled out and they had to do it again once I got to the back. So yeah, I would have a different conversation with the doctors that were ringside. I mean, they were just taking care of me, because we have the greatest doctors in the world.

That looked like a super dangerous bump; I watched it and just cringed. When I was playing the game, I think my opponent somehow stole my finisher and used it against me. Whether that actually happened or not, I don’t know, I was too worried about getting pinned and losing; but, if you could steal any wrestler’s finisher, whose would it be?
Oh, that’s a good one. Whose would I steal… I think, probably, a lot of people wish that they had the RKO, because that’s just such a…well, people just love that move — it’s such a cool move. But I would personally say the Terry Funk Spinning Toe-hold. Because even though I could do that [move], it wouldn’t have the same effect without people being educated on the history [of the move] and also debilitating effects of applying it.. And, it’s just a really easy move to apply — yet, you can break men’s legs easily. And I could do that [move] well into my 40s or 50s after I’d be not nearly as athletic as I am today. That would be a good one that would last.

You can create your own Superstar in the game and the fun of creating a wrestler, even if it’s just in your head, is trying to pick out what your theme song would be. So, for you, let’s say you couldn’t have your current entrance song, but you could have any other song in the entire world– no copyright issues to worry about or anything — what would it be?
Oh, I like that question. Hm… I would say… “Godzilla” by Blue Oyster Cult. But if you ask me again tomorrow, that answer will change.

Right on. One last question: Steve Austin’s on the front of the game; you verses Stone Cold, who wins?
Whoever can throw more punches in less time — I feel like that’s how it’d play out.

You two have similar wrestling styles, too; you’re both brawlers for the most part.
Yeah, I feel like that one would turn into a bar room brawl super fast. Yeah, [the match] would be very very quick, very very ugly and very very beautiful all at the same time.

As JR says, it’d be a “real slobber knocker,” right?

1. Our 13 Favorite Dean Ambrose Quotes


Website Staff
October 3rd, 2015

It’s been a hot minute since we last had an article on the site from our resident writer, Austin Skinner. Here’s his latest thoughts on everybodies favorite brothers in arms, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. Let us know what you think in comments or on Twitter/Facebook!


The Prodigal Sons Have Returned
By Austin Skinner

…And boy, does it feel good to be back! Thanks to common enemies continuing to cause headaches for Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, it was only a matter of time until the two found themselves with their backs firmly against one another’s once again. With no other options, these two dogs have reinforced the power of their pack. So, look out ladies and gents, because the dogs are back and ready to reclaim their yard!

No truer words could be spoken for Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose as of late. Over the past few months, both men have had their own respective battles to fight. The two would be behind the scenes while they took care of their respective business. But, over the course of the last few weeks, the two have counted on each other more and more, almost throwing back to their running days as two-thirds of The Shield. Perhaps, we are bearing witness to a reboot of The Shield’s batteries, or perhaps this entity is something entirely new? Either way, Ambrose and Reigns are not only back on the same page, but the exact same sentence… And that spells disastrous things for common enemies as, Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family, The Authority, and the traitorous Seth Rollins.


Now, it’s no secret that a public enemy and enormous thorn in the side of both Dean and Roman has been Bray Wyatt. Taking the stand of “anybody but you” with Roman Reigns and having no problem attacking Ambrose whenever he deems fit has been Bray Wyatt’s business for weeks. Needless to say, the target on his back is all the bigger for his latest actions against our brothers in arms. Most recently, we saw Bray team up with his understudy Luke Harper, and the deranged Mr. Money in the Bank, Sheamus. With some luck and The Viper in their corner, Reigns and Ambrose were able to secure a hard-fought victory over The Eater of Worlds and his cronies.
Does that spell the end of Bray’s business with our boys? An eerie feeling made me highly doubt that. Wyatt isn’t one to let actions made against him go unchecked very easily. His ability to hold a grudge has been well documented over the past few years, especially when it comes to his hatred for Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. My hunch was right as soon after that victory, a new Wyatt would rise from the ashes in the form of the monstrous Braun Strowman. With this new entity going unanswered, Ambrose and Reigns would go on the hunt for a third man. By Night of Champions, Strowman would prove to be a vital new asset to the Family, as Ambrose, Reigns, and their surprise partner Chris Jericho would fall victim to the team. With that said, I doubt one victory will be enough to put our hungry pack of dogs down! They owe Wyatt and those close to him a few good receipts still. Besides, concerning Dean Ambrose, Wyatt himself has had it coming for a long while now. So, with Hell in the Cell looming around the corner and the Wyatts riding high on their victory, you never know what the unstable one and his brother may have up their sleeves.


Bray Wyatt aside, there has been no bigger threat to Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns’ momentum than Seth Rollins and The Authority. Ever since the deterioration of The Shield’s original incarnation, Seth Rollins has almost made a point to antagonize his former best friends. With plenty of help, he was able to underhandedly fend off and turn away both men from the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. I assure you, Roman Reigns hasn’t forgotten. We all know Ambrose hasn’t, either! With Kane and J & J Security pretty much out of the Authority picture for the time being; perhaps Rollins will be ripe for the picking? Only time will tell, because regardless of what John Cena may or may not have been able to accomplish against Rollins at SummerSlam, and Sting being able to accomplish at Night of Champions, you can bet that it’s only a matter of time before both Ambrose and Reigns will be next in line for a crack at the traitor! Regardless if he’s the WWE champion after Kane picks him apart at Night of Champions, or not!
Either way you slice it, Seth Rollins’ days are number and hopefully it’ll be our man, Dean Ambrose that pulls his card once and for all! If not, I’m sure he’ll be watching on intently as Roman Reigns picks him apart as soon as such a chance arises. At this point, we should expect to see Rollins knocked down a few pegs, and who better to make that happen than the same men he stepped on during his climb to the top? There aren’t two men more suited for the job of dismantling the architect. Triple H will pay dearly for what he put in motion a year and a half ago, as he watches his boy freefall into a pit of hungry dogs.
I have enjoyed watching Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns tear it up against common enemies for weeks, but it’s now going to come down to the nitty-gritty. How far will the power in their brotherhood take them in the coming weeks? Will the Wyatts have a bite taken out of them at Hell in the Cell? Only time will tell. One thing’s for sure, though… What ever Ambrose and Reigns have in mind definitely won’t be pretty, because together, these dogs won’t go down without a fight!

Have you enjoyed watching Ambrose and Reigns tear it up again?

AMNewYork also spoke with Dean about 12 Rounds, you can read the Q&A below, including the thing Dean found most surprising about the movie making process.

WWE wrestler Dean Ambrose is nicknamed “The Lunatic Fringe” for his brand of chaotic frenzy unleashed on his opponents in the ring. But when it comes to his first acting gig — a starring role in the new movie, “12 Rounds 3: Lockdown” — he takes things very seriously. “If I’m going to be in a movie, it’s going to be a good movie,” the 29-year-old grappler says. “I have a competitive nature, perfectionism kind of takes over. I did all the legwork and research necessary to do everything I could do to make sure this is the best movie it can possibly be.”

In the film, he plays a detective, John Shaw, who takes on corrupt cops trying to kill him. amNewYork spoke with Ambrose about the film.

How did your WWE career help prepare you for acting?
Everybody in the WWE, when they get on any kind of movie set or television commercial, we always find that we’re more prepared than we thought. We’re uniquely prepared for anything in entertainment because the WWE is kind of a show business boot camp. We learn so much about what goes on in front of the camera, behind the camera, the stunts, doing everything in one take. On “Monday Night Raw,” there’s no second takes. … We’re like the Navy Seals of entertainment. We’re so used to going nonstop, 365, doing all these different things.

What was your favorite part of doing the film?
We do all these fight scenes. The fight coordinators and stunt coordinators were some of the best in the business. They put together these awesome, cool fight scenes. Those were the [most fun] things for me; that to me was the easiest part. Everyone else was having trouble memorizing these complicated choreographed things. You have three days to learn this fight scene. … It took me, literally, 90 seconds. It came so easily to me because that’s what I do.

What was the most surprising thing about making a movie?
I’ll tell you the stupidest thing. … I don’t know why this never occurred to me in 29 years of life. I said to the guy, “When we’re filming this and I throw this right hand, where should I land it? Do I just like get him in the face, do I try and pull it?” He looked at me like he didn’t understand. He was like, “You just leave some space, so it goes across the camera.” It was like this lightbulb went off, like movie magic had been fooling me for 29 years. I just whiff. I don’t hit him at all. … I don’t even have to get hit? I thought I was going to get punched in all these fight scenes. This is great; it’s like a vacation!
