WWE United States Champion Dean Ambrose recently spoke to Philly.com to promote the Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Here are some highlights:

Competing in his first MITB Ladder Match: "I feel like I'm stepping into a very unpredictable situation with six other extremely capable, extremely talented, extremely smart and dangerous individuals. A lot can happen both bad and good. Unfortunately for them, none of them are as smart or as dangerous as me and I'm going to make sure that I'm going to be the one walking out with the Money in the Bank briefcase."

Improving since being with WWE: "I feel like I'm 10 times better of a wrestler than I was when I first got here. You have so many good brains to pick here in the dressing room with Hall-of-Fame guys. I can pick Arn Anderson's brain or William Regal's brain or Jamie Noble. Joey Mercury is a guy that I learned so much from during my time in FCW. He's one of the smartest wrestling minds that you'll ever find anywhere and me and him had a really good connection and I was able to really learn a lot and step up my game from working with him."

His reign as United States Champion: "It's something you don't fully appreciate until the moment happens and you grab that belt and hold it up and you feel the energy in the audience and it overtakes you. I want everybody to step up their game to try to get me. I want challengers and I want big fights. If I have to pick my own challengers I will. I don't believe the championship makes the wrestler I think the wrestler makes the championship."

Ambrose also discussed working for CZW before WWE hired him, not being intimidated when he first got to WWE, adjustments he's made since signing with WWE, returning to Philadelphia and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
