Dean had a quick chat with Sportskeeda.com and talked Shield reunions and heel turns!
Just weeks away from WrestleMania 33, we briefly spoke to WWE Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose about his thoughts on a potential heel turn in the future, his opinion on a Shield reunion and a whole lot more.
Q: You’ve been a babyface for a while now. What are your thoughts about a heel turn in the future? A: I go out there and just try to be myself. Whatever mood I’m in is kind of the version of me you’re going to get that day. I go out and do me and what I feel like and I don’t really think too much about it. There’s a lot I still want to do in my career and there’s going to be a whole other chapter in the future.
Q: Is there anyone in the WWE you haven’t faced in the ring yet and would like to face?
A: I watch a lot of these guys on SmackDown Live. I really like watching American Alpha – they’re really coming up and they’re good and they’re only going to get better. They’re hitting on all cylinders right now and they have such a good and fun style to watch. It’s so exciting and it’s such good action. I just really enjoy watching them. They’re the best examples of two guys who are a tag team. Maybe I’ll team up with them or get myself a partner for a while – explore what I can do with those guys.
Q: What are your thoughts about a Shield reunion in the future?
A: You never know. I don’t think anybody’s thinking about it right now. You have to give me a ‘why’ before I tell you if it’s a good idea. So I’ll just give you a ‘never say never’. Who knows.
Dean and Renee took part in a huge interview for Vegas Seven, covering everything from how lifes changed since coming to the WWE, Fanfiction and backup plans!

WWE’s Dean Ambrose and Renee Young: Power Couple The Las Vegas residents and World Wrestling Entertainment stars square off on the realities of life inside and outside the ring
By David G. Schwartz
Six years ago, Ambrose was getting forks jammed into his forehead until he was streaming blood and powerbombed on thumbtacks in front of a few hundred fans. This year, he won the business’ biggest prize in front of 19,000 Las Vegas fans and hundreds of thousands watching on the WWE Network. But what probably means more to him is that the intensely private Ambrose snared something even more valuable: a rewarding life and someone to share it with.
Ambrose and Young talked with Vegas Seven about what he does and why he does it, with Young sharing her own perspective.
What’s it like being where you are now?
Dean Ambrose: I made a pretty good name for myself before I got here—hustling and working every single possible indie promotion and all over the world for years, and through YouTube, creating the biggest buzz I could for myself. I figured then that WWE wasn’t something I was destined for; I was gonna be a little cult hero in my own little niche. And at the time, I was totally happy with that, even though I always knew in the back of my mind that I wanted to be over there. So I think it’s a cop-out when you go, “Oh, well, I don’t wanna go there.”
Back then, nothing came of it materially, but I felt like I was as good as anybody in the world and I’d never get to prove it. Once I got here, it was about climbing the ladder. But that was all just icing on the cake.
By then, I wasn’t seeking validation or approval from anybody. The successes for me aren’t championships or any of that kind of shit. It’s that I get to do what I love and get paid for it, and it’s fun. And we get to do Make-A-Wish, meet kids and be an inspiration to people, and that’s such a blessing. How many people would love to be in that position? I was able to pay my mom’s house off, I have a home for myself, and another bonus was I was able to meet the one woman on planet fuckin’ Earth that could ever put up with me.
I feel like all the stars aligned. I’m one of those “I think the whole universe has a plan” kind of guys. And if you put enough good karma into the can, it’ll come back to you in the end. I feel like I’ve been able to put enough in by doing enough of the right thing …
Renee Young: Your karma can is looking good.
What about people who say wrestling is fake?
Ambrose: We let everybody go behind the scenes and we make no effort anymore as a business to make it seem real. I don’t take myself too seriously. It’s 2017, [and] if you say wrestling’s fake, I’m not gonna flip out or whatever—you’re just uninformed. To me, there’s nothing fake about the miles that I’ve put on my body or the actual work that goes into perfecting this as a craft. I put in the same hours to get good at this as a surgeon who went to college. It’s just a much less important job in the realm of society. But as far as the man-hours you put in, it’s hard to do. And there’s nothing fake about the injuries, the risk and how dangerous this is. It’s extremely dangerous. But I won’t be offended by [the comments]; people say it all the time.
What if you hadn’t become a wrestler?
Ambrose: I have nothing to offer you. I can’t remember a time when wrestling wasn’t the only thing that I thought about or cared about or did or had any intention of doing. But if I would stop wrestling now and had to do something else, I think I can make a hell of a park ranger.
Young: Or a private eye.
Ambrose: I like getting into stuff; I like investigating. I’m a big outdoorsy person who fell in love with Vegas, and I’m huge into mountain biking, hiking and rock climbing. I love being outside. I love being able to see the mountains every day. So to work here … that’s not a bad job. Sit out in Red Rock all day just saying hello to people. That ain’t that bad. I’ve Googled this before, actually. That seems like a decent job, just hanging out in the park, going around, counting flowers, freeing raccoons from traps and stuff.
Young: Check out the flora and the fauna. I think that there’s definitely something to be said that when you don’t have a fallback plan, you have to just do it. It does really require all of your attention to get it off the ground, right?
Ambrose: Having a fallback plan isn’t a bad idea, but if you ain’t got one, fuck it. Just go for it and see what happens. Because if you don’t have one, that probably means you’re so single-minded that you’re gonna have the drive necessary to make it happen for yourself.
Young: You have to make it work.
Ambrose: Because if you’re like, “Well, you know what, my fallback plan is to be a nurse, but I’m gonna take a shot at this wrestling thing.” You won’t have the urgency to really go for it.
Young: It needs your full focus. I read that in a Janis Joplin book one time, and it stood out to me so much when she was saying that she didn’t want to have a fallback plan. I was like, “Oh, yeah, of course.”
Ambrose: I never looked at this as a job or a career until I got to the big-time. Then it was, “Oh, this is how I pay my bills.” Before that, I didn’t really have any bills. Maybe some rent, because I did a lot of couch surfing and being a vagabond; wrestling was just what I did. Now it’s a job because now I actually make money out of it. You gotta have that mentality.
As we celebrate the sites 6 Year Anniversary we bring you our first ever Fan Q&A with the man himself, Dean Ambrose. We asked fans across our social media platforms to submit their questions and we chose 16 of the most interesting for him to answer, as well as a few ‘Bonus’ short answer questions. We cover everything from favorite books and superpowers to thoughts on The Shield split and more. Check it out below and a huge thanks to Dean for helping us celebrate our 6th year online. Here’s to a busy year 7!
Would you ever write an autobiography and what would it be called? Sent by Martha Comellas A: Probably not. I actually turned down a book offer this year. I don’t like to talk about myself enough for that I think. Also, the best stories I can’t remember well enough to accurately recall, some stories aren’t mine to tell, plus I wouldn’t wanna throw anyone under the bus not in a position to defend themselves, inadvertently or not.
Which was your favorite scene to film in 12 Rounds 3: lockdown Sent by Ashley Koch & Darren Connolly A: The fight in the locker room. Also the roof fight with the horrible bomb special effect. All of the action stuff was fun, playin GI Joe and gettin paid. Dude, sign me up!
Do you have any hidden talents you’ve never shown on TV? Sent by Phelan Newman & Stella A: I’ll %!@# your world up at Jeopardy. I’ll spelling bee your ass under the table too.
Would you like to be a guest on Ghost Adventures (Zak Bagans has said he’d love to have you on the show) and where would you like to investigate? Sent by Sarah Gonnella A: No. %!@# ghosts.
If you could go back in time knowing what you know now and give yourself some advice, what would the advice be? Sent by Amber Jackson & Lucy Davies A: Learn to take advice… thing is I wouldn’t have taken that advice.
What was the Total Divas experience like? Sent by Ashley A: Actually really fun. I had no plans on participating at all, but once I saw how their operation works up close I was like.. this is so stupid and hilarious I have to get in on it, how can you not have fun with this ridiculousness?
What was it like meeting Vince McMahon and Triple H for the very first time? Sent by Dylan Fulk A: …I honestly don’t remember. What a S%!@#! answer. I apologize. You get a coupon for another question at a later date.
Whats the best advice you can give to someone just getting started in wrestling? Sent by Lots of people! A: Crawl, walk, run. Master the Guerrero rolls. Have fun. Do it for yourself, not anybody else.. Every day, cuz otherwise it wont be fun and you probably wont be making enough money to do something that’s not fun.
If tomorrow was your last day on earth, how would you spend it? Sent by Jessica (sassy_icajess) A: Hiking, fishing, having some sex, karaoke and submission wrestling. Logistically that is a difficult day to plan, luckily I could hire an expensive assistant or event planner for one day, cuz i’ll be dead the next.
How do you think things would have turned out if they’d had you turn on The Shield instead of Seth? Would you have preferred it? Sent by Linda (SkyHighRollins) A: …Nah, I can’t imagine it happening any other way now. I think it worked out exactly like it was supposed to.
If you could go back and relive any one moment, what would it be? Sent by Jessi Lee A: The cigarette I had after a terrified doctor recommended orange juice, after nearly bleeding to death in a tournament in Florida. I wrestled Sami Callihan 30 min later!
Site Note: For those wondering, the match was a Full Impact Pro tournament match in 2010, against Arik Cannon. You can view captures Here. Not for the faint hearted!
Would you like to open your own wrestling school or be a trainer at NXT one day? Sent by Laurie (purple_sneakers) A: If I had the time to do that I wouldn’t be wrestling, and when I’m out, I wanna be out… that being said something like that’s not out of the question.
Whats your favorite book and do you have any book recommendations? Sent by Lyzette Austin & Nina Alman A: “Of Mice and Men”. Favorite when I was a kid and I still like it. I’ve always been a big reader, I used to spend hours at the library all the way into my 20’s, here’s a tip for everyone: the library is %!@#in free. FREE! They just let you take stuff. Check it out, I’m tellin you. Reading is probably my No.1 hobby these days because its something you can do on the road at anytime, I get through 1 or 2 books a weeks usually. Currently I’m into the Jack Reacher series. Anything Gillian Flynn writes is good. “The Tao of Willie” by Willie Nelson is a big favorite of mine, everybody should read that.
If you could have any superpower what would it be and why? Sent by Estefany Sanchez A: Invisibility, or that Mystique s!@#.. cuz I like the idea of slipping out of sight forever. Also, because the most badass way to do good deeds is doing them anonymously.
What was the most physically draining match you’ve had in your career so far? Sent by Oz A: They’ve all run together for so long. People ask me often how my body is holding up, my standard reply is I’ve been sore, tired and hurt for 13 years. That’s not a specific answer but its the most accurate I’ve got.
If you could pick any artist to play you a theme song who would it be? Sent by CraziMandy A: The Deftones.
If Dean Ambrose was a Pop Tart flavour which one would it be? Sent by jenxvazquez A: Cherry. Unfrosted.
Do you like pickles? Sent by Tracy (xoTracyyLxo) A: Very much.
Favorite flavour blow pop? Sent by Taylor Alyssa A: Blue.
If you could have anybody play you in a movie about your life who would it be? Sent by Sheridan A: Jeff Bridges. That answer is based mostly on the fact that I watched “Hell or high water” yesterday.
A big thankyou to everybody that sent in questions, apologies if we didn’t get to yours but we had to keep numbers down, he’s a busy guy and we tried to be varied! Huge thanks again to Dean also for taking time out of his schedule to do this. Check back with us on our social media pages as we’ll be giving away some Dean merch in our continued 6th Anniversary celebrations soon!
Dean conducted an interview with the LA Times, regarding the Royal Rumble and the hype surrounding it, as well as participating in Total Divas and what the future holds, check it out below!
In the Royal Rumble, 30 wrestlers enter the ring, one every two minutes, until there is one left standing. Last year, Dean Ambrose was one of the last two before he was tossed out by Triple H. This year, however, everyone seems to be overlooking him.
In a phone interview, Ambrose discussed this Sunday’s Royal Rumble along with his newfound role on the TV show “Total Divas.”
Q. You almost won the Royal Rumble last year, but so far this year, all the hype has been about Braun Strowman, Brock Lesnar, Goldberg and The Undertaker. Are you feeling a little overlooked? A: That’s part of the reason for my success. You’ve got all these dinosaurs roaming the land, Braun Strowman, Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, the Wyatts and all these guys and I kind of fly under the radar. That’s what happened last year. All these top-heavy guys are tipping over the top rope and I’m just hanging on like a cockroach. Sometimes that’s not a bad thing, you know? I might just play a game and tie myself to the bottom rope and try to be inconspicuous until it gets down to the last couple of guys.
Q. I know that some wrestlers in the past have said that when they became WWE champion, they didn’t realize that put on them. You were champion for a while. Did you feel any extra pressure?
A. Not really. I’ve stepped up into a role where I have taken responsibility as the guy who has to do it. That’s how it has been for me always. I’m more comfortable there than anywhere else. I like wrestling 30 minutes a night. I like, at the end of the night, to be walking back to the locker room limping and sweating, spitting blood out of my mouth. I’ve been doing this for a long time and it comes naturally.
Q. Do you ever see yourself retiring?
A. I do. I know a lot of guys say that when they are younger “I’m gonna get it, get my money and get out” and then end up wrestling until their 50. But that could end up being me too. I can tell you I want to get out early and end up eating my own words. All of a sudden I’m 50 and I’m still walking out there. At this point I see myself retiring and disappearing into the ether way before anyone would expect. And when I am done, I will be gone.
Q. Well, not too soon, right?
A. I could totally see myself limping down the aisle when I’m 60, jumping off the top rope and breaking my hip. I could be a hilarious geriatric wrestler.
Q. When you are in the Rumble and there are nine or 10 other guys in the ring, it looks like a situation ripe for injury because you can’t possibly watch everything. What is it like?
A. You have to have your head on a swivel, eyes-in-the-back-of-your-head kind of thing. It is very easy to get hurt in a match like the Royal Rumble. It seems very run of the mill, but it’s always the stupid stuff where you get hurt. You’re backing up and someone else is backing up too and you step on their ankle and your ankle gets broken and you are out for six months. Catch an errant elbow in the back of the head and you get a concussion. And there’s all these big dinosaurs in there, I’m like the tiny animal running between their legs. In a situation like the Rumble, I’m looking around constantly and keeping my back against a rope as much as possible so I can see what’s going on.
Q. My wife is a huge fan of “Total Divas” and loves your appearances on the show. What’s it like being on a show most wouldn’t associate with you?
A. It’s a lot of fun. Hey, if they want to pay me to hang out with my girlfriend, act like a goofball and drink margaritas, I’d be an idiot to say no to that.
Dean had a chat with Joshua Caudill of craveonline.com and talked connecting to the fans, being ‘Put on blast’ and finally winning the WWE championship. Check it out below and original link at the bottom!
As WWE wraps up the summer with one of its premier PPVs this Sunday in Brooklyn, it will also serve as the setting for Dean Ambrose to further his championship run and write another chapter in his whirlwind journey.
After taking a backseat to two of his former Shield brothers the past year, Ambrose seized his opportunity a mere two months ago by cashing-in his Money in the Bank briefcase to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. After being drafted to be the face of SmackDown Live and a successful title defense against Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, Ambrose is staking his claim as WWE’s top man.
It’s a position that Ambrose gladly welcomes but one he never thought would be thrust upon him. Nevertheless, the laid back superstar has plans for staying true to his nature and as he prepares to defend his title against Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam, Ambrose took a moment to open up about his match, winning the WWE title, the difficulty of wrestling in jeans and what he does to escape the madness of being in the ring.
CraveOnline: This Sunday at SummerSlam, you defend your WWE World Heavyweight Champion against Dolph Ziggler. What are your thoughts on Ziggler as your opponent? Dean Ambrose: I was very excited to see Dolph Ziggler come out of that No. 1 contender deal to challenge me at SummerSlam. Ziggler is one of those guys who don’t get all of the credit he deserves for being so good consistently for so long. Every single night for years, he’s out there busting his ass and tearing it up and keeping his nose to the grindstone. I like having that attitude and work ethic because when you bring that to the ring with the same mindset you can create something special.
I also like that we’re representing SmackDown Live. There’s an attitude and an excitement on that team because it’s a new thing, it’s a live show on Tuesdays and we’re going to try and built it into something. Plus, we’re trying to stake our claim to see who’s the leader on that team and both Ziggler and me want to stake our claim as the main guy on SmackDown Live.
CraveOnline: SummerSlam is one of the top shows of the year. As a performer, do you feel the need to step it up a notch or is it business as usual? Dean Ambrose: There are times when you got to put a little “extra” in especially on a card at WrestleMania or SummerSlam because it’s no time to hold anything back. You have to pull out all of the stops. The thing about Dolph [Ziggler] and me is that we really never hold back anyways. Whether we’re in Paducah, Kentucky or WrestleMania, we go out there to lay it all on the line and I think that grassroots of busting our ass from the bottom to the top attitude is what got us to this title match at SummerSlam.
CraveOnline: You have mentioned your admiration for the way the old NWA champions carried themselves with the title. Now you’re the WWE Champion and the face of SmackDown. What does that feel like internally for you? Dean Ambrose: It feels like a responsibility. It’s like I’ve been given the keys to a very nice car or something. The WWE Championship is the greatest championship in the history of this sport. It has the most history of anything. You go back to Bruno Sammartino and uniting the titles in the 2000s to the first undisputed title, it’s a ‘grade A’ championship. You can’t go out there and be a goofball. You have to represent like a true main eventer.
CraveOnline: There has been a connection between you and the fans throughout this journey of you getting to the ‘top of the mountain.’ What do you think drives that connection? Dean Ambrose: Anybody can come in and be hot for a day or a week or a month or something but I’ve had my ups and downs as you know. But when you spend enough time in people’s homes because we’re on TV every week and they see you go through your journey, they feel like they know you. A lot of people feel they spend enough time watching me go through the good, the bad and the ugly so they feel like they know me and are a part of it. I’m kind of like a part of people’s families. You can’t buy that kind of connection with people.
You can’t really imagine until you get in that position where you meet these people all around the world and you’ve helped them get through some tragedy or gave them motivation. I get stuff from dads saying their sons and them watch every week and that’s their father and son thing they do and they thank me for that, for giving them something to connect with their sons and how they’re creating memories. I didn’t plan on doing any of that but it’s the position I was given. That stuff is important. Continue reading »
Dean featured on the Stone Cold Podcast tonight in perhaps his most personal and honest interview since coming to WWE. Letting us into a little of the man behind the ‘Lunatic fringe’and detailing his childhood growing up in Cincinnati with his sister, to his proudest accomplishment so far – being able to pay off his Mom’s house so that she could quit her job. Something no doubt every child would aspire to do for their parents. He also spoke about high school football and wrestling, as well as misbehavior that led to him discovering his gateway in to the world of wrestling; Heartland Wrestling Association and trainer Cody Hawk.
He talks The Shield, the expectations on him and his struggle to get to where he is now, as well as Vince McMahon, how he approaches a promos, his days on the indies – and he even cuts a Jon Moxley style promo on Stone Cold himself. You have to check it out, and you can watch in full at the links below. Highlight with his thoughts on Vince McMahon above! Enjoy!
Dean spoke with CBS Boston about his plans with the Championship, getting to sleep in his own bed and how it felt to finally reach the top.
BOSTON (CBS) — Sunday night in Las Vegas, Dean Ambrose won two matches in one night. He beat five other men in a Money In The Bank Championship contract ladder match. He went from winning that contract to — about an hour later — pinning Seth Rollins, in eight seconds, to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Seth Rollins had just beaten Roman Reigns following two Pedigrees.
A day later, Felger & Massarotti executive producer James Stewart talked to Ambrose.
James asked Dean if he’s slept since he won the championship and if he got to party with the NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
“I actually got to sleep in my own bed last night, which is a rare, rare treat, because I live in Vegas,” Ambrose said. “I only slept in it for about an hour-and-a-half, but it was a good hour-and-a-half.”
Ambrose said the strongest feeling after winning the championship was one of relief.
“I was immediately so tired from a match that lasted 30 seconds,” he said. “I’ve never been more tired after a match in my life, because it was just like a big weight off my shoulders. Just the responsibility I had to the people who stuck behind me for so long. I’ve been chasing that thing for going on two years now. I’ve come so close to rolling that boulder to the top of the hill, and it kept falling back down over and over. So it was just nice to get that sucker over the hill and say, ‘All right, now we can chill out for a second.’”
James also asked Dean if he would have cashed in on Roman if Roman had retained against Seth Rollins.
“I woulda whacked him right in the back of the head with that briefcase,” Ambrose said. “Here’s the thing: I’m prone to losing things. I lose my keys and my sunglasses and my hat, I’ll lose my shoes. I lose everything. So the thought of carrying that briefcase around for a year, in the airport and going from hotel to hotel and building to building carrying around that ridiculous briefcase, I was like, ‘I’m gonna lose this thing. There’s no way I’m going to be able to keep track of this friggin thing for six months or a year, let’s just get to it tonight and let’s get this sucker out of my hands and get something else in my hands.’”
Saturday night, the WWE will have a live event here at the TD Garden in Boston. The scheduled main event was going to be Roman Reigns defending the WWE Championship against Seth Rollins but now with Dean winning the championship, the main event is up in the air.
“I will face any man, woman, child, any being, any monster that is in Boston,” Ambrose said. “Basically everybody you could possibly want to see is going to be at the TD Garden in Boston, because we love coming to Boston. It’s one of our best towns, our best audiences, and we’ve had a lot of great moments there. It’s kind of one of those shows that everybody looks forward to on the calendar. So everybody’s going to be in the building. I don’t know who’s going to step up. I always step up. I live at the plate, you know what I’m saying? So it could be anybody. Who knows what’s going to happen? But I’m going to be there, and I’m going to be taped up and ready to fight. So we’re going to see what goes down.”
Thanks to @VertigoMama on twitter, we have a few clips from Deans Wizard World Des Moines Q&A, we’ll try and get hold of the entire thing although the organizers now have a short clip policy and aren’t allowing people to record in full. Excuse shakyness at the end of the video, camera was under the control of her son!
