More from Wrestlemanias Media Morning and Dean discusses Wrestlemania moments and favorite matches.
Dean Ambrose on life in the WWE (News.Com.Au)
Both Dean and Daniel Bryan were recently interviewed below is Dean’s portion of the interview, which includes him talking about various Wrestlemania moments both professional and personal:
‘IT’S AN ENERGY THAT WILL ALWAYS STAND OUT’
WrestleMania 33 will begin on Monday (AEST) in front of 75,000 fans in Orlando.
In 2016, over 100,000 packed into Cowboys Stadium for the sports entertainment showpiece, setting a new indoor attendance record.
But just what does it feel like to walk out and perform in front of that many people?
WWE star Dean Ambrose heard his first WrestleMania crowd at New York’s MetLife Stadium in 2013, when he made his debut as part of The Shield, alongside Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.
The trio were being snuck out from a backstage area so they could perform their traditional entrance through the crowd. They were placed in a holding area waiting for the music to hit, signalling their entrance, but Ambrose says the wall of noise that met the stars was unlike anything he’d experienced before.
“We just walked underneath the stadium and came out but there was no music playing yet or anything — we were just getting staged,” Ambrose recalls.
“Once we got out into the stadium, there was this buzz, a vibration that you could feel, literally feel in your body, when no music was playing, no nothing.
“It was just the rumble of 80,000 people. It creates such a physical buzz of energy that will always stand out to me, I will never forget it.”
A WrestleMania appearance solidified a dream come true for the former WWE champion, given Ambrose’s love of wrestling career was fostered while watching some of the great WrestleMania moments in his youth.
“I liked the Bret Hart-Shawn Michaels Ironman match (from WrestleMania 12), it was one of my favourites. I used to watch that over and over and over when I was a little kid,” Ambrose says.
‘It was very impressive to me the whole Ironman thing and Bret Hart-Austin (WrestleMania 13), that was just a great intense, awesome match. Two of my favourites and standouts.”
The 31-year-old is entering his fifth WrestleMania and will defend his Intercontinental Title against Baron Corbin at WrestleMania, but there’s another match he’ll be keeping a close eye on come Monday.
“I’d like to see what kind of weird stuff Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton get into. I feel like it’s a very weird situation going on,” Ambrose said.
“Houses are being burnt down, ghosts, witches apparently, I feel like something cool is going to happen”.
At WWE’s media row, we spoke to WWE Intercontinental Champion, Dean Ambrose about his appearances on Total Divas with Renee Young, her getting in the ring to compete, his match with Brock Lesnar at last year’s WrestleMania and how he feels about being Intercontinental Champion and what the belt means.
Dean spoke with Sheldan Keay from the Manchester Evening News about his opponent at Wrestlemania, Baron Corbin. And how he think’s hes a moody kinda person that needs a mentor. Check out the clip above!
Dean attended the Wrestlemania 33 Axxess Media Morning and spoke to many TV and radio outlets, you can view a short clip from WWEDeutschland above, in which Dean discusses the Intercontinental Championship. We’ll be bringing all the interviews as they arrive online so watch this space. You can check out a Gallery of candids from the event below!
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!
