Smackdown started out with Baron Corbin confronting Daniel Bryan and demanding to know Dean’s answer to his challenge. Bryan simply tells him he hasn’t heard from Dean since he was crushed under a forklift by Baron and he’ll have to wait. In the meantime, he puts Corbin into a match against Randy Orton. It’s during this match, Dean chooses his time to get a little payback. Climbing up on top of a forklift he’d brought out to the ramp, Dean distracted Baron asking if he was busy. This was enough for Orton to lay out Corbin and win the match. Dean sauntered down to the ring afterward, accepted Corbins challenge to an Intercontinental Championship match at Wrestlemania, nailed him with a Dirty Deeds, then left him floundering in the ring. That’s just the start of the fun you’ve gotten yourself in to, Corbin. Here’s what WWE.com had to say!
Orton and Corbin left it all in the ring in a hard-hitting contest as they faced off for the first time. The turning point came when Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose returned to SmackDown LIVE, standing on the front of a forklift in reference to Corbin’s attack with the destructive device from several weeks ago.
The distraction proved costly for The Lone Wolf, as it allowed The Viper to strike with an RKO and pick up the victory.
After the contest, The Lunatic Fringe made his way to the ring to tell Corbin that “it was on” for the Intercontinental Title at WrestleMania, striking The Lone Wolf with a Dirty Deeds for good measure.
Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose’s indestructible nature will be put to the test at the hands of “The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin at The Ultimate Thrill Ride, WrestleMania 33.
The 6-foot-8 biker thug has already done a number on The Lunatic Fringe, whether it was Deep-Sixing him through an electrical board or injuring Ambrose’s ribs by crushing him underneath a forklift. However, the champion is resilient, as well as reckless and unpredictable, as evidenced by his response to the forklift attack: While being transported to a medical facility on the night of the incident, Ambrose reportedly jumped out of the moving vehicle and began trekking back to the arena on foot, in search of retribution. Two weeks later, he rode a forklift back into SmackDown LIVE to officially accept a WrestleMania showdown with Corbin.
Both Superstars are used to being the toughest guy in whatever town they roll into, the sort of stock Jim Croce wrote songs about, so it’s no surprise that they’ve run afoul of each other. The hostility only intensified as Ambrose and Corbin kept getting in each other’s way as they both pursued the WWE Championship.
The Lunatic Fringe’s attack mode is perpetual motion, but it remains to be seen whether his famously high threshold for pain will be enough to endure battle with Corbin. Perhaps the heavy-hitting Lone Wolf will be the Superstar to finally shut down the unbreakable champion.
It’s equally possible that Ambrose is most dangerous when he’s hurt and angry. Focused on survival and retaliation, his darkest instincts kick in, releasing whatever reins keep this freewheeling force tethered to decency on a day-to-day basis.
WrestleMania’s Intercontinental Championship Match will be a brawl. Watch The Ultimate Thrill Ride, WrestleMania 33, live on the award-winning WWE Network Sunday, April 2, at a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.
Another article from the European conference call last week, a little more of the same, you can check out an interesting excerpt below and read the full article HERE
The life of a WWE Superstar is a grueling one. In recent times Dean has been called on to do ‘double duty’, wrestling in two matches, in two cities, on the same night. How does any athlete cope with such a schedule while trying to stay in top form?
“Several times I’ve been up first in one town, wrestled 20 minutes… and then got on a plane, and walked into the main event in a different building, in a different town that same night. We do 14 straight nights wrestling in Europe before we get on a plane for Saudi Arabia or England. You have to figure out your own rhythm, and make sure you get a good work out in when you are home because you never know when you will be able to (find a gym) on the road,” says Dean.
Often, the WWE Superstars make the best of a difficult situation on the road. No gym available? No problem!
“Sometimes if there’s no gym available, we get to the arena early and we run the stairs, or we find an area of the building to do some running,” shares Dean. “The thing with working out, both for athletes and people in general, is that if you want to find the time to do it you will. It’s a learning curve but you figure it out as you go along.”
More from the European conference call last week, this time the UK’s Daily Star covers Dean’s thoughts on Wrestlemania, Smackdown Vs RAW and… jeans?
Making a long-awaited debut in Britain’s only print wrestling column is WWE Intercontinental Champ Dean Ambrose, an interview which is long overdue.
Emerging from the fractious chrysalis of the Shield with Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, Dean was swift to carve himself a niche and distinct character in the torrid pastures of the WWE hierarchy.
Now, readers will know that the jeans have never been FT’s favourite thing.
Every match is not a street fight and I don’t care if you are a “lunatic” – but let’s play fair: if Luke Harper can do it, so can Ambrose.
Ambrose’s dodgy denim is at least fresh off the washing line. In six years in WWE, Ambrose has a haul of titles – one world belt, two IC belts, one US title reign and a Money in the Bank win to his name.
Wrestlemania this year, his fifth, will likely see him face Baron Corbin in a less high-profile encounter than perhaps he’s used to, having had Brock Lesnar and IC Ladder Match to play with in the past two years.
“It’s more a test for him to see what he can bring to the table. I go out there and wing it so much, I like to fly by the seat of my pants,” begins the 31-year-old.
The aforementioned Harper has far more reason to feel hard done by in terms of title opportunities than Ambrose in the view of this column, but Ambrose says he’s laid back about everything and enjoying the wild ride.
“It’s the time of year where there’s incentive. There is a different energy when you show up to the buildings.
“Yes, there is that extra energy and yes, it is the biggest show of the year, but it’s one of 300 other shows during the year.
“I feel you’re burning out your mental energy if you think about it too much. I like to take it one day at a time.”
While we are on the subject of Harper, Dean shares a compelling tale about Mania back in Florida in 2015 when he found himself power-bombed through a ladder by the big man in the signature high spot in the ladder match.
That wasn’t the worst part, though, he reveals today! “I had a gash in the back of my head and I didn’t know.
“So I’m lying there, chilling, in this heap of metal, and the doctor runs over and he says, ‘OMG, you’re cut really bad!’ I think he thought I was going to try to get back up and try to re-enter the ring.
“He told me we were going to have to staple it, so I was like, “OK”. So he says, ‘Here we go… 3, 2, 1’.
“That was a thous and times worse than getting power-bombed on the ladder! I was expecting three quick staples and no pain whatsoever!
“Then after the match I had to have them taken out and put back in again. “That was the most painful thing that happened to me in a match and no-one even saw it.”
And as for the Smackdown Live brand in its competition with RAW, Ambrose argues there is no ‘B’ show.
“I don’t really pay too much attention to what’s going on with RAW,” he says.
“I think Randy’s match with Bray is a testament to how people have gotten into the stories and interaction between Superstars on Smackdown.”
Another in the series of interviews Dean conducted last week during a group conference call, a large portion of this article is basically a transcript of the Top Turnbuckle Podcast, CatchNewz and Planeta Wrestling audio interviews but still makes for an interesting read, check out some highlights below.

Ambrose’s blue-collar approach has been gold for WWE By JAN MURPHY
There’s nothing fancy about World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Dean Ambrose.
He doesn’t wear elaborate ring attire, opting instead for a tank top and jeans. He doesn’t toss around fancy catchphrases or cut long promos. He prefers to keep it simple. Yet the one thing that does stand out about the 31-year-old Cincinnati native is his work ethic, which is second to none. That work ethic has led to a lot of success in the WWE. So when asked during an international conference call ahead of WrestleMania 33 what fans can expect from Dean Ambrose in Florida on April 2, his answer was simple, yet telling.
“Expect the same thing at WrestleMania that you get from me every single night,” he said. “I go out there and let it all hang out, whether I’m wrestling one guy, two guys, four guys, whether a guy’s seven-foot tall or 400 pounds or whatever. I go out there and let it all hang out every night. I’m not happy unless, after turning in a 100 per cent effort, it’s always 100 miles an hour coming back to the locker room, sweating and bleeding and feeling good about it.”
Effort has always been a staple of Dean Ambrose’s career. After signing with WWE and working in its previous development territory, Florida Championship Wrestling, he and fellow FCW standouts Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins debuted at the Survivor Series pay-per-view in 2012, something of a rarity for young talent.
“It was a different time,” Ambrose said of making the leap from developmental to debut at a major pay-per-view. “Now, younger superstars have got to get their experience on the big stage at NXT and they get to learn the ropes there on a bigger platform and just kind of transition over to WWE main shows. Back then, we were just nobodies who were training at a little warehouse in Florida, wrestling in front of 30 people, and nobody knew who we were. We were complete nobodies and we walked right into the main event scene.”
In fact, Ambrose said, their debut signified the end of an era as not long after, WWE turned its developmental system into the current NXT, which has TV, pay-per-views, live events and is a completely separate and popular brand for WWE.
“I don’t know if any other three guys could have handled that the same way we did,” he said. “Nobody will ever be thrown to the wolves again the way were, when we were brought up. We just got tossed right in, we just got tossed right into the deep end of the pool and it was sink or swim, and all of us have been swimming ever since.”
Indeed. Rollins, Reigns and Ambrose have been main event players in the WWE since, and all three have held the WWE world title.
Since breaking away from his cohorts in The Shield in 2014, Ambrose has emerged as one of the most popular and reliable performers in WWE, winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, along with two reigns as Intercontinental champ and is a Money in the Bank winner. He’s also become one of the top stars on Smackdown Live, which became its own brand after a roster split in 2016.
Being part of the rise in popularity of Smackdown Live has been special, Ambrose admitted.
“I’ve never looked at it like, ‘Okay, I want to beat Raw. This is a competition thing.’ But you do have to take a certain pride in your work,” he said. “With Smackdown … we see the audience grow on these shows every week. It’s a live event. The crowd is really into the feuds and the rivalries, and they’re really into what they’re seeing on TV and the stories, and they’re really starting to sink their teeth into stuff. As a locker room, we might beat each other every night, but I think there’s been big swell of pride in the Smackdown locker room. It’s a really great crew of guys, it’s one of the best locker rooms that I’ve ever been a part of — maybe the best locker room that I’ve ever been a part of.” Continue reading »
Interview with french internet show CatchNewz. You can find the transcription in French HERE
English transcription by us below:
– AJ49: Hi Dean how are you today?
-Dean Ambrose: Good how are you?
-AJ49: Well, thank you. In 2016 you made great matches, you won the title of champion of the WWE for the first time and you have been in the Main Event of a lot of shows, you are also one of the stars Of Smackdown Live since the brand split, so do you think 2016 is your best year at WWE yet?
-Dean Ambrose: I haven’t really compared or thought about years, one year to the next. You know it’s just been, since the day I got here its been such a huge whirlwind, it seems like its just been one long year, even though its been four or five. I’d say probably yeah, being able to be part of Smackdown Live has been very rewarding, its been such a great show with a great crew and one of the best locker rooms I’ve ever been a part of. Being able to be a part of building a shell from the ground up has been very rewarding, I’m happy to be a part of that.
-AJ49: In a recent interview, you talked about retiring earlier than expected, but what would you like to accomplish before you retire?
-Dean Ambrose: It’s hard to say, from a material standpoint I’ve been a part of every kind of match I ever dreamed of being a part of, accomplished so much from an objective standpoint. But when I look at it like when I was a kid and I was first starting wrestling, all I wanted to be, the ultimate goal, the thing that drove me to start training.. I just wanted to be a wrestler. I just wanted to be one of those guys on TV living that life and being able to say “I’m a pro wrestler and I’m good at it” you know what I mean? And now when I look back at that I’m like “oh shit” and I’ve got all this other stuff, all these other things I accomplished, but the main goal was just.. I got to do it. I got to go live my dream, I got to actually be a freakin’ pro wrestler, just like I wanted, so thats the really rewarding part for me. As far as other accomplishments, I think they’ll just.. it’s not like you can really seek out stuff and accomplish it, and go do this and go do this. You kinda have to roll with the punches and see how things go. Rewards and accomplishments will come in time and I’ll just take them as they come until the day it’s time to hang it up.
-AJ49: My last question is about the intercontinental title, do you think the Miz raised the title to another level and do you feel the same things as when you won it for the first time in 2014 or are you more proud to wear now?
-Dean Ambrose: Yeah I definitely take a lot of pride in the Intercontinental Championship, it’s always been known as the workhorse title and for me its like.. for me it’s just every day you walk out to the ring with that thing it’s a reminder of where you’re at and what you represent and you’re not putting on some half assed performance because you gotta keep the Intercontiental Championship around your waist. It’s go time.
Dean conducted another interview with FoxSports Italy and discussed dream Wrestlemania matches, Brock Lesnar, The Shield and more. The interview can be read in its original Italian format HERE. Thanks to Twitter user DeniPivato who translated it into English for us here on the site.
WWE, Dean Ambrose at FOXSports.it: “The Shield reunion? Who knows…” SmackDown’s Intercontinental champion gets ready for WM33 and his challenge with Baron Corbin: “It looks that way but I expected anything from this event..”
One time world heavyweight champion and United States champion and two times Intercontinental champion. Since his debut in WWE in 2011, hardly Dean Ambrose didn’t play an important role in the word of wrestling owned by Vince McMahon. He made it thanks to his wild and crazy attitude, he is well known as the lunatic fringe. He’s chaotic and impulsive, unpredictable and capable of everything, winning or losing against everyone. The lunatic fringe had a lot of glorious moments including winning the 2016 money in the bank, and for the first time he will enter WM 33 as a champion.
The interview was made a few hours before smack down live, where the ex member of the shield continued his feud with Baron Corbin who attacked Dean Ambrose in the backstage area with an iron bar and tried to squash/press him with a fork lift before referees could stop it.
1) Even if it’s not official, at WM 33 The two men will face each other with the Intercontinental title on the line: Dean: That is true, but if he truly wants my title he has to earn it and prove who he really is. Baron Corbin is one of the toughest men on smackdown, but he must show the wwe universe what he’s made of. In any case, I don’t know what’s going to happen at Wrestlemania. I am not even sure if I will face one, two or three opponents in Orlando. Thats the WWE, you never know what’s coming for you, and who you’ll go against; but I’m sure Wrestlemania Will be an unforgettable night. This is our day.
2) And for the first time you will be at Wrestlemania as a current champion: Dean: Wow that’s true. I never got a chance to think about it, and it’s crazy. I’m proud of myself, I’ve worked so hard to earn this title and well, I hope I deserve it. It’s weird because this is a title that belonged to “hard workers” like Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels. I also think I’m a wrestler that fights every day to create a reputation. Continue reading »
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.
