With thanks to Carley of TheReminder.com we have some of the questions and extended answers that didn’t make it in to her finished article Exclusively here on the site! Take a look!
About the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view match against The Wyatt Family: Dean: That was a good deal. It was one of those lightening in a bottle type things. It’s very rare – it’s been a long time since you’ve had two groups built up like that. And, when you have two groups or individual wrestlers or entities of any sort that are both so dominate and so different it becomes a dream match scenario when you get to see them clash like that. All six of us worked our asses off to make that come together. It was the perfect scenario.
At what point did you incorporate dancing in your routine and why? Dean: Dancing? Hmmm. Um, I don’t know that I ever consciously ever incorporated any dancing into my routine. When I’m out there and I’m just lost in it, like, I’m so comfortable in my own skin and so confident in what I can do that, to me, I’m just having so much fun doing what I’m doing, whether I’m getting beat up or I’m beating people up. The more crazy and the more intense and wild the fight’s getting, I’m just having more fun. The more the pressure is on, the more intense the situation is – I just live in those moments and I’m just comfortable in them so when stuff like that sneaks out, then it sneaks out. I’m just out there doing whatever the first thing [that comes to my mind]; I’m not thinking about what I’m doing out there. I’m just doing stuff. It comes pretty naturally to me. I just kind of turn off – I don’t know whether it’s my right brain or left brain, whichever one is the mathematical one – I turn the analytical part of my brain off and just go out there and start doing stuff and see what happens.
What it’s like to be on the receiving end of Sheamus’ blows. Dean: He’s a real physical guy and I like that. We’re two guys that are not bothered by things getting a little rough or a little physical. If I get it from a guy like that, I’m just going to give it right back. I’ve been hit so many times, by so many people and objects, and fell on things, hit things – I’ve had so much experience getting my body thrashed around and things thrashed into my body that really nothing fazes me anymore. It’s just another day at the office.”
What the opportunity to take part in Piper’s Pit and be involved with Jake the Snake mean to him as a WWE fan.
Dean: ‘Yeah, like, we’re going come down and attack CM Punk. And then the New Age Outlaws come out. Yeah. And then Jake the Snake comes out. And Rowdy Piper comes out.’ There were like four different eras of people. It was so hilarious once everybody was in the ring. Punk’s making jokes at me and Road Dogg’s making jokes at me – Road Dogg always makes me laugh anyways – and Jake the Snake’s out there putting the snake on my face – it was such a ridiculous scene the bug caught me and I could not stop laughing to save my life. The whole thing was so ridiculous that it was funny. I couldn’t stop laughing.
Cracks in The Shield?
Dean: The greatest teams in sports ever and the greatest rock bands in entertainment ever they didn’t have to be a 100 percent hunky dory, best friends all the time. When you work together as much as we do and you’re in such intense situations all the time like we are, emotions are constantly running high. We’re like brothers. Sometimes me and Reigns get at each other’s throats a little bit. But, we’re always on the same side of things because with us it’s never been about individual glory.
World Wrestling Entertainment returns to Birmingham for the second time this year Tuesday night. The card will be television taping for Friday Night Smackdown, which airs each week on the SyFy Network. One WWE superstar who is prepared to make an impact at the event is United States Champion Dean Ambrose, one-third of The Shield faction, which has dominated the wrestling world for the past year.
“We go out there and try to outwork everyone else,” Ambrose said of himself and his Shield teammates, Seth Rollings and Roman Reigns. “We do what we have to do every night. If I have to defend my U.S. Title, wrestle in a six-man tag match and then go out for another match that’s not televised, that’s what I do. That’s how The Shield competes. We get the job done.”
Ambrose said he knew The Shield would be a force in the WWE from the first day they were put together. He said the group is still evolving.
“No one really came up with The Shield. It’s an organic thing,” Ambrose said. “We’ve never said, ‘This is what The Shield is going to be.’ We just go out and let things flow. We do a lot of stuff off the cuff. We are unpredictable, and that’s what makes us so dangerous.”
In recent weeks, The Shield has worked closely with WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H and his wife, Stephanie McMahon.
“We are basically paid mercenaries,” Abrose said. “If someone needs a job done, they pay The Shield. Lately, we’ve been in the middle of this power struggle that’s going on. Triple H has paid us to do a job, and that’s what we will do. I’m sure we will be called upon in Birmingham. If The Shield is in the building, we are going to make an impact.”
Other wrestlers advertised for Tuesday’s Smackdown taping include, Daniel Bryan, Big Show, Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, The Wyatt Family, Dolph Ziggler and Damien Sandow. The event is set to start at 7 p.m. and tickets will be available at the door. For more information, visit WWE.com.
To Accompany Septembers issue of WWE Magazine’s “Power Issue”, WWE.com has an article up speaking with the current Power Players on the roster. Three of those of course being The Shield. Here’s what the Trio had to say about their power in the WWE and what it takes to get the job done.
Power Is a Numbers Game
The Shield—WWE’s first legitimate three-man militia—know that a three-pronged attack means the statistics are always in their favor.
Three is the magic number, especially if you’re part of a make-our-own-rules outlaw faction of Superstars who fights for nothing but justice. And according The Hounds of Justice, their numbers equal well-rounded power.
“We each bring intelligence and athleticism, but the main thing that The Shield excel at is intensity,” asserts loose cannon Dean Ambrose. “We force our opponents to keep up with us. It’s fight at our level, or else get swept up. Thanks to our endurance, we can drag our opponents into the deep water and drown them.”
The fact is, historically speaking, strength in numbers doesn’t always work—just ask the oversaturated iterations of The nWo. However, The Shield have the formula figured out.
“If one of us has a shortcoming,” admits the group’s airborne anarchist, Seth Rollins, “We can rely on each other to fill the void. If we need power, that’s Roman’s thing. He’s the tank. If we need an aerial attack, I can take care of that. I’m the kamikaze pilot. If we need cunning, or need to out-fox someone, Ambrose has that covered. He’s the solid machine gun. We’ve got a three-headed dog, ready to attack from any angle, not just a one-pronged game plan.”
In most cases, different personalities and skill sets naturally would clash, but not so with Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns.
“Three alpha dogs in a pack? Normally that wouldn’t work,” Ambrose admits. “But we all know it’s us against the world, and this whole company. One guy doesn’t need to control the group, the group needs to control the industry. We’re all working for the same thing.” Rollins confirms that egotism and one-upping isn’t an issue for The Shield. “Egos?” he scoffs. “There aren’t any. We’re all talented singles competitors with bright futures. But, for the greater good, and so we can dominate WWE, we’ve come together to create this unit, this unstoppable force. We figured that it’d be easier to infiltrate the system together, so we can tear it apart from the inside out.”
With such a solid foundation, will The Shield ever build its ranks?
“No,” Ambrose clarifies. “We would never want to add any more people because nobody can make us better than we are right now. We don’t need any dead weight. You see these groups in the past, like The nWo, come out with 30 guys, and it doesn’t work. Three is the perfect number—we always have the numbers advantage, and there’s absolutely no room for cracks in the foundation.”
In an interview with Phil Strum of The Poughkeepsie Journal, Dean taps on numerous important subjects that wander across the minds of many fans across the world. Talking about facing the legendary Undertaker, the Shield’s success, his partners, and his influences, Dean is described by Phil as “real and honest” in the interview below. Here are some of the highlights:
Phil Strum: The Shield is one of the most successful acts in WWE in years. To you, what’s made it so good and what’s made it connect with the audience so well.
Dean Ambrose: We’re three guys who are very confident in what we can do and we’re not dilly-dallying around. We know how good we are. We want to go out there and really try to grab the bull by the horns. The way we look it, it’s like this company is ours for the taking. The company wants young guys to step up and it’s like ‘I don’t care we’re taking over.’ A lot of veterans and the office have wanted guys to have that kind of attitude. We’re not afraid and we’re not intimidated. In our minds, we are the main event. Being fresh and being new, no one’s seen our faces before on TV. Maybe they knew me and Seth before we were on TV. Roman is a natural and he keeps getting better every day. We have so much talent and so much confidence in our ability. We came in and we were already on the level and we can already go.
PS: What was it like being in the ring on SmackDown and staring across at The Undertaker?
DA: Being across from The Undertaker is a very surreal experience. It felt like it must have been a dream. On the other other hand, this is a window that’s only open for who knows how long and how quickly it’s going to close. You better take advantage of it. I’m not intimidated by any scenario, whether it’s The Undertaker or John Cena or anybody. We’re going to do this. At this level, it’s kind of like the fight or flight kind of thing. All of us are kind of put in a position where you don’t get intimidated by the magnitude or the pressure of it. You don’t feel it. You feel the aura of The Undertaker. He has a presence. This is the most legendary guy you’re standing across the ring from and as big of an opponent as you can get. It’s like winning the lottery and I’m not about to not cash my lottery ticket in. You have ice water running through your veins. You’re out of your mind. It’s funny. The music’s playing. The pyro’s going off. It’s The Undertaker’s music. But once the bell rings and you make physical contact, it starts to work and the world shrinks down to a 20-by-20 ring and it’s any other match really and you have to stay on your game once the bell rings.
Going around Axxess, and asking the tough questions certainly seemed to be SBNation’s purpose this past ‘mania weekend. Not focusing on Wrestlemania, we were all given a pleasant look into the more playful sides of the Shield… And now, you all know what to give Ambrose at signings.
…We’re kidding. Maybe. Definitely kidding. Enjoy Dean’s answers to the interview below!
1. Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses? Dean Ambrose: No way. A horse-sized duck, that reminds me of the Big Show. [At WrestleMania] we’ll find out what fighting a horse-sized duck is gonna be like. He’s gonna be a big, immobile goof just getting pecked on and beat on.
2. What is your opinion of mayonnaise? Dean Ambrose: Miracle Whip, son.
3. Cake or Pie? Dean Ambrose: Pecan pie, brother.
