Mini Biography: Dean Ambrose started his career back in 2004 under the name of Jon Moxley. Earning high praise from independent companies around the world, he became a household name for the hardcore, holding championship gold in companies such as Combat Zone Wrestling. With his name capturing the attention of wrestling fans across the globe, Jon soon earned a developmental contract with the WWE. He then took on the name of Dean Ambrose and began the process of cementing his name in stone. Feuding with William Regal and Seth Rollins most notably on NXT, Ambrose went on to make his much anticipated main roster debut at Survivor Series 2012, coming in alongside Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns to make a massive impact in the main event, aiding CM Punk in retaining his WWE Championship. The Shield tore an unstoppable path through the WWE for over a year before going their separate ways and into singles competition. Dean first went after Shield traitor Seth Rollins for revenge, and then on to win Intercontinental and WWE World Heavyweight Gold. Described as “Fearless, wild and always unpredictable” as well as a “world class competitor and infamous troublemaker” – Dean Ambrose is the star to watch!

Ahead of the live event in Edinburg, Texas at the Bert Ogden Arena, The Monitor interviewed Dean about his injury and the health scare that came along with it, being back in the ring and his new look. Below is the full interview you can also view it at TheMonitor.Com 

Before WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose went into surgery to repair a torn triceps tendon, he was told to expect a three- or four-month recovery period. Once his doctors saw the extent of the damage, they upped the timetable to six. And about six weeks after that, Ambrose said a routine checkup quickly escalated into a second surgery to combat an infection. All in all, Ambrose describes the eight months he was off television as “one nightmare after another.”

Ambrose made his return to WWE Raw last month, and today he will be part of a WWE Live event at Bert Ogden Arena in Edinburg. Ambrose will team with Seth Rollins to take on Raw Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre — a preview of their championship match scheduled for Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view in San Antonio.

In advance of WWE’s first ever appearance in Edinburg, Ambrose caught up with The Monitor prior to the Sept. 3 episode of Raw from Columbus, Ohio. Ambrose detailed the excruciating pain he worked through before finally taking time off due to injury and the grueling recovery process that followed. He also discussed his diet and training routines, his new style in and out of the ring and his goals going forward — which certainly do not include regaining the title of WWE Ironman.

Q: How has it felt to be back on Raw the past couple of weeks?

AMBROSE: It’s good to get back out in front of people. I had a lot of frustration I needed to really get out that built up over the last eight months. It was a long, long period of time. Much longer than would have been anticipated.

It was just one nightmare after another. It was a pretty challenging period of time to go through. I ended up having two different surgeries. I had this MRSA, Staph infection. I nearly died. I was in the hospital for a week plugged up to this antibiotic drip thing, and I was on all these antibiotics for months that make you puke and crap your pants.

So it was a pretty rough time. My arm wasn’t healing correctly, and my triceps. It’s kind of an indeterminate period where I initially hurt it. I thought it was, we call it Dusty elbows. It’s a pretty typical wrestler thing. You just get this bursa sac of fluid on your elbow from banging it on the mat or whatever. I’ve had that dozens of times on both elbows. It usually just goes away. It was kind of disguised. By the time I finally went and got the first surgery, my triceps was already starting to atrophy and look weird. I wasn’t able to flex my triceps for a really long time. And then the first surgery didn’t really, something went wrong in the process. Probably due to that infection. It’s kind of hard to say when that really even got in my body. This is a long answer to your question. But for a minute there, it was getting scary. By the time I got that second surgery, it was March, I think. My arm was so shrunken and skeletal that it was weird. I hadn’t been able to move it or flex it in so long that I was starting to get scared I wasn’t ever going to get it back. To go from not being able to eat my Froot Loops, to being able to get back in the ring and throw people around and throw punches and do everything back to normal, it was a very gratifying feeling.

Q: How long after the first surgery did you realize you had the infection and would have to have another surgery?

AMBROSE: It looked good. Before I went in for the first one, they were like, ‘OK, yeah, this is going to be a three- or four-month thing. You’ll jump right back.’ Once I woke up, they were like, ‘Oh man, this is going to be six months minimum. Because we went in there, and that thing was messed up. You beat it to death. It’s going to be a lot harder than you initially thought. But still, not so bad.’ They said they found traces of an infection during the first surgery, but they cleaned it out. I don’t know if it was in there previously, or if it came after. It could’ve been with me for years. I don’t know. But it was about six weeks or so after that I was like, this is not healing correctly. I didn’t have anything to compare it to, because I had never been hurt before. So I ended up going back for just a checkup. I thought I was just going to turn right back around and get on a plane and go home, and they were like, ‘No, you have to go in again for surgery like right now.’ I was like, ‘Oh, no.’ I had just kind of got through all of the stitches and all of that stuff. It was a giant mess. I just kept having to start back from square one. I ended up just moving to Birmingham just to play it safe and be with the doctor and best rehab guys. As soon as I got out of the second one, I was flying home, grabbing my dog, turned right back around, got in the truck and drove to Birmingham. I just stayed there for two and a half or three months until they felt like I was pretty good. Once the MRSA really got out of my system, I was working out twice a day. Rehabbing twice a day on top of that in Birmingham. Doing everything possible to try to get my arm working again, and once I started to come back, I started to make a lot of progress over the summer. So I’m feeling good now.

Q: Was the second surgery entirely for the infection or did you still have structural damage to the triceps?

AMBROSE: The tendon was attached when I went in there the second time. But there was all this goo. The environment wasn’t letting it heal correctly, I guess. I’m not a doctor. I don’t know. But they just had to scoop out all this gooey stuff. I didn’t realize how bad it was. If I hadn’t gone in for that checkup, I could’ve gotten seriously sick. It could’ve been even more dangerous. But it all worked out.

Q: It sounds like you could tell something was wrong because you weren’t able to move it normally or work out at the level you wanted to.

AMBROSE: Yeah, I didn’t really have anything to compare it to. I was rehabbing it where I live in Vegas and was just doing what they were telling me to do. But I just kind of, in my mind, knew something wasn’t right. I was like, ‘I don’t know. Something is weird here.’

Q: You mentioned how hard you hit training after you got through it, and people are seeing the difference now that you’re back on TV. What was your routine like once you started feeling healthy again to get into the shape that you’re in now?

AMBROSE: Nothing fancy. Pretty basic. Just basic powerlifting. Bench, squat, dead lift. It’s a lot easier when you have the time to just recover and stuff. Being on the road 280 days per year, you’re working 30 minutes per night and traveling all around the world, recovery is a lot harder. But nothing fancy. Just super basic, heavy-ass weights.

Q: Does your diet change at all when you don’t have to travel?

AMBROSE: I can pretty much eat whatever I want. For me, it’s just, you have to eat a ton to make sure I keep on size. I especially eat tons late at night. Everybody tells you you’re not supposed to eat late at night. I’m the opposite. I’m stuffing food in my face 24/7. I eat generally a pretty clean diet anyway, just regular stuff. Steak. Stuff like that.

Q: How much of a challenge have you found it throughout your career to maintain being muscular and that level of fitness while on the road? Have you learned anything about how to manage that or changed your approach over time?

AMBROSE: I’m always doing different stuff. I go through different phases where I’ll get bored of one style of stuff and do other stuff. I’m a very physical person. That’s why it was tough to be stuck being inactive for so long. I don’t necessarily enjoy sitting on the couch watching TV. I’m all for that, sometimes. You need to relax. But generally, it doesn’t keep my attention very long. I like to be out doing stuff. Everything I do is some kind of physical exertion that’s relaxing to me. I’m always doing different stuff for fun. Whether that be mountain biking, running, running on mountains, training in wrestling and grappling. I’m just doing whatever I think is fun. I’m always doing all kinds of different stuff.

Q: When you were injured and away from TV, were you keeping up with the program weekly, or was that tough to watch?

AMBROSE: I entirely mentally checked out. I kind of had to. I had been in so much pain for so long when I left, that I was going through some stage-five-level burnout. I needed to just mentally check out of the whole thing. Seeing anything on TV probably would’ve just annoyed me anyway, since I’m out and can’t do anything. Even so, my brain, my level of patience for anything, just from being in pretty severe, my arm was hurting so bad, just this radiating pain 24/7. I wasn’t able to sleep at night for quite some time until they finally figured out what was wrong. That was a relief to finally have an answer. But I was just dragging my fist. Trying to find the fortitude to go to the ring every night was starting to get hard. So when I had the opportunity to step away, I just full-on stepped away and mentally checked out.

Q: How long were you struggling like that before you finally decided to step away and take some time off?

AMBROSE: It was maybe as much as two months before we finally found out what was wrong.

Q: When Seth Rollins had his injury, he said in his “WWE 24” documentary it was nice to be able to reconnect with friends and family for a time and take a breather. Did you experience anything similar or find any positives going through this experience?

AMBROSE: Yeah, there definitely was some time. Normally, people will be like, ‘Oh yeah, I’m going to come visit.’ And I’m like, ‘Well, I’m not going to be home like, ever.’ If I’m in a town that one of my friends is in, we’re in and out and we’re out on a plane the next morning or that night. So it’s a quick hello, maybe. But I was able to have some people over for a few days. I was able to, my sister bought a new house, and I never got to go out and see it, so I got to go out and see it. Stuff like that. There was definitely some time to hang out with normal humans doing civilian stuff. It’s weird to try to remember how to do that.

Q: You came back with a very different look, with a short haircut and changed facial hair. How did you settle on that look specifically or why did you want to change direction?

AMBROSE: Right after I got hurt, I cut my hair really, really short. Like, all the way. After it grew out a little bit, I liked it. So I was like, I’m just keeping this. I wanted to do that for a long time, actually. I said, ‘I’m just keeping it like this. I don’t care what anybody says.’

Q: In the ring, I think there’s been a difference in how you’ve wrestled your first couple of televised matches. How do you describe the changes to your in-ring style, and what led to that?

AMBROSE: I was able to go back to Ohio, where I started, a few times over the summer, and get in with my guys that I’ve trained with and I started with. I brought in some guys specially to work with, guys who like wrestling and know me. I’m really just at a mental point where I’m just like, ‘I just want to take guys down, beat them up, pin them and go home.’ Hard-nosed, straightforward, aggressive wrestling. Nothing fancy. Nothing confusing. Your brain gets so melted being in the circus that is WWE for so long, you know? Sometimes it’s nice to just get back to super basics.

Q: Before you went out, you were the Ironman of WWE and had wrestled the most matches for the past couple of years. Is that a title you’re interested in reclaiming, or has the injury changed your perspective on that?

AMBROSE: I heard that, and that was nice, but that’s a title that’s worth exactly zero dollars. So I’ll let somebody else have that. I’m ready to move on.

Q: Do you have any other goals now that you’re back in the ring?

AMBROSE: Yeah, I’m just going to have to let all that play out and so forth. My mindset is a lot different, probably, than a lot of the other WWE superstars as far as what I want and what makes me happy and the things that are rewarding to me. I have some stuff left on the table that I want to do. I’ll let it all kind of play out. Right now, I’m just enjoying being back in the ring, which is nice, to be back traveling again. Last night, we got in from Shanghai, China. Right after Raw last week — this is a Monday, obviously — we left for the UK and London. We did London, went to Osaka and did Japan, went from Japan to China and came back around and now we’re in Columbus, Ohio. I literally just went around the world. It was actually kind of fun. It’s a brutal tour, but it was nice for me to just jump back in. It was weird going from so much inactivity to now I’m right back in the grinder again. But it’s really addictive when you get the mindset that you have to keep moving all the time. Being in one spot is very hard for me to adjust to. Because I’m the type that once every day or two, you feel like, I have the gypsy mindset where I just want to pack up and leave. I can be a place for a day, and then it’s time to go. It’s nice to be back in the swing of things.

Q: It was interesting to hear you say you think you value things other guys don’t, or that you have different priorities. What are some of those things that you think resonate with you more than other wrestlers?

AMBROSE: At this point, money or any kind of quantifiable statistics, titles or whatever, or any kind of validation from anybody is not really important to me any more at this point. The most important thing, the thing that makes me the happiest, is just being happy with a piece of work. Like an artist makes a watercolor painting or whatever, and they sit back and go, ‘I’m really happy with that.’ The thing that I value most in my past and my career at this point, I realize they’re just the stories that I’m more proud of that were told, that still stand up. Just good pieces of work. I want to be happy with the finished product. Whether that’s one match, or a longer story, or if that’s one interview, or whatever. Whatever it is. That’s the most important thing to me at this point. Because I’ve had all the other things. Out of every thing that there is, that’s still the most rewarding thing and the only thing that drives me or gets me really excited other than just the live performance and being in front of the crowd, is that artistic, creative satisfaction.

Dean recently spoke to GuideLive.Com in Dallas, Texas about the live event in Arlington Texas, where he spoke about live events vs TV, teaming with Seth again, what it’s like being in the ring with someone like Braun Strowman and more. Below is the full interview, you can also view the original article here

What’s different about performing a mid-week ‘WWE Live’ show as opposed to an episode of Raw or Smackdown on TV?
Ambrose: I live for the house shows. It’s more of an intimate experience because every one is a little bit different. It’s only going to happen that one time in the arena for that audience.

The live events are what I dreamed of when I wanted to be a wrestler as a kid. There’s a lot less restrictions, time constraints, commercials. There’s no somebody standing out there with a microphone, talking for 20 minutes, driving you crazy. There’s no commercial breaks. There’s no ads popping up on the screen. It’s just, straight up, a night of pro wrestling – WWE style. … The live events are my personal favorite type of show we have. It’s not something you want to miss.

The show at College Park is just a few miles away from the site of WrestleMania 32 (AT&T Stadium). What do you remember about that event?

Ambrose: It was really wild, man. The best way I can describe WrestleMania is just ‘surreal.’
I remember pulling up to that stadium, in particular, seeing the 200-foot picture of my face plastered on there – my brain can’t even process that it was so weird. And when you walk out in front of 100,000 people, your brain can’t comprehend that big of an audience – at least mine can’t.
It doesn’t really feel any different once you’re in the ring. Once you’re in the ring, it’s like you’re in the eye of the storm. There’s nothing really outside of the first couple of rows of people you can see. But the sound is different because there’s 100,000 people there, it’s like this giant, vacuumous, weird sound. It’s very strange.
You build up to it all year, and then it’s over so quick. It’s very surreal. I’ve wrestled in front of as little as like ten people or less when I first started … and that’s a lot more awkward than wrestling in front of 100,000 people.

You’ve rejoined former Shield partner Seth Rollins in this current title run, what has it been like being back together?

Ambrose: We’re having a lot of fun, I’ve got to tell you, the last two PPVs – “No Mercy’ and ‘SummerSlam’ – been very, very happy with the matches we’ve had with Cesaro and Sheamus, who are also a great team. Probably underrated. They’re No. 2 to us, of course, but we’ve been having some great matches.
The thing about me and Seth Rollins, we take our reputation as former partners in The Shield – we have a certain standard when it comes to tag team wrestling. Our thing was the second you put us together, we instantly become the best tag team in the world and we have to live up to that every single night. That’s how we got our start. That’s how we got to where we are just by having kick-ass matches every night.

Any tag teams in WWE you’re wanting to go head-to-head with?

Ambrose: I really appreciate the experience of getting to work with Cesaro and Sheamus. They’re just a great team. But also, I really have enjoyed the time we’ve got to be in the ring with [Karl] Anderson and [Luke] Gallows, The Club. I think this is going to be a good year for them. I think they’re really going to start catching on with the audience, come into their own as a team. They’re an excellent couple of wrestlers … Karl Anderson is a guy I’ve known since I was probably 18, and I think the first time I wrestled him was here in WWE. Really enjoyed it. I hope we get to have more matches with The Club.

On his ‘No Mercy’ match which saw two of Cesaro’s front teeth pushed ‘3 to 4 mm’ into his upper jaw after an in-ring maneuver…

Ambrose: I didn’t know that his teeth were busted out until after the match. I saw his face after the match backstage. I thought he just bit his lip or had a little, tiny cut, a little bit of blood … The thing is, we’re so safety conscious, and in WWE they really go out of their way to protect us as athletes. If they think we’re hurt, they’re going to try to stop the match no matter how much we’re telling them we want to continue. … But thankfully, the referee got it under control, got the blood stopped, and then you just keep going.
Cesaro, I know, would have never for one second want to stop the match and go get his teeth fixed because we’re just wired differently as athletes. Compared to like NFL, NBA players and so forth, those guys are pansies, sorry, we do this 365 days a year. We voluntarily beat each other up for a living. Nobody does the schedule that we do on the pace that we do. We’re just machines, professional wrestlers as a whole. Just another day at the office.

On wrestling somebody like 6’8″, 385-pound (listed) Braun Strowman…

Ambrose: If you’ve ever been a little kid at the zoo, and they let you ride the elephant…what’s the biggest thing you can think of that you would climb up on when you’re a little kid? It’s like that. You’re literally a child when you’re in there, it’s foolish, he just picks me up like I’m Jiminy Cricket and I can’t do anything about it.
That’s the fun thing about WWE, we’ve got all shapes and sizes. To think I can get in there with smaller, athletic guys and try to keep up, but then sometimes you’ve got to get in there with big dinosaurs. I feel like, more often than not, I’m in there with big dinosaurs – the story of my life. Just walking around, all 6’2″ of me, and just walking around all these giant behemoths, pretty much just trying not to get stepped on. It’s like I’m living in Jurassic Park.

Dean spoke with the Huntington Herald Dispatch and discussed The Shield, live events, championships and Renee. Check out an excerpt below and the link to the full article HERE

When Ambrose came onto the WWE scene in 2012 as part of The Shield with Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, Ambrose started being described as “The Lunatic Fringe.” Outside the ring, Ambrose passes for sane. Inside the ring, given his talent and connection to fans, the nickname has helped him become a headliner on the WWE roster.

That character will be on display Saturday, July 15, when the WWE Live SummerSlam Heatwave Tour makes a stop at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena. Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show range from $20 to $100 and are available at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena box office, via Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.

Ambrose and Seth Rollins are set to take on The Miztourage of Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel.

“I feel like I’m a pretty sensible individual,” Ambrose said in a telephone interview. “I don’t feel unhinged (another characterization). It is what it is. Michael Cole (WWE announcer on “Monday Night Raw” and pay-per-views) said it on TV enough times it clicked. I’m used to it. You know you get labels put on. In the ring, I don’t care. I fly by the seat of my pants, do whatever I feel like doing. Don’t worry about the consequences.”

Ambrose was raised in Cincinnati but now calls Las Vegas home. He was fearless at the outset on the independent circuit in the early 2000s with the ring name Jon Moxley. He could take punishment and dish it out all the way to the top in WWE. He’s also done a movie with John Cena and Randy Orton.

“It’s tough in any line of work to get to the top,” Ambrose said. “You can’t quit when times get rough. Things are going to happen to you. You have to believe in your abilities to do the stuff and put your nose to the grindstone. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow. I’ve had an incredible journey. I love to do what I’m doing. I’ve been fortunate to travel the world. All kinds of memories, stories.”

The Shield hit it big when they came onto the WWE scene. As time passed, storylines had the trio split and go to singles. Ambrose has had to face Reigns and Rollins on several occasions.

“They threw us right to the wolves. We clicked immediately,” Ambrose said. “We go week to week. We’d figure it out, did a lot on the fly. It all worked out. It’s a means to an end. Three new guys come in and kick the door down. It’s very rare three personalities work like that. You could tell we resonate with people. I’ve made way more money, got a lot more things done, a lot more work without them.”

Ambrose said he and Rollins look forward to the tag match. Axel and Dallas played a role in The Miz beating Ambrose at the Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view Sunday, July 9, to retain the Intercontinental championship.

“We’ve got issues after Sunday,” Ambrose said. “Plan is to go in and slap them around. Drop them on their heads and teach them a lesson.”
