WWE United States Champion Dean Ambrose recently spoke to TheMonitor.com to promote this weekend's WWE live events in Hidalgo, Texas. Here are some highlights:

Watching wrestling from home and now being a part of it: "It's still very hard to wrap my brain around. I was in a main event overall last night, and that doesn't sink in. I always expected to be here, from day one it was just a question of when, but it was going to happen. And from the minute I got (to WWE), I expected to be in main events (I'm not in main events all the time, I'm still climbing the ladder). I try to stay pretty humble. Just being in the locker room with guys that I watched on TV; getting advice from Arn Anderson or William Regal, that kind of stuff is really cool to me; getting to work really closely with Triple H, it's, no pun intended, a trip. It's weird because you dream of being in this world one day and then you are and then it's just everyday life and it's like, 7-foot (Big Show) walks into catering and it's like, 'What's up, Show?'"

If he could meet anyone in the ring, who would it be: "I've had the opportunity to wrestle pretty much everybody, a huge litany of stars and in my crystal ball, I see myself and CM Punk crossing paths and colliding. It's not anything that's boiling right now."

Ambrose also discussed The Shield's goals, this weekend's live events and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
