Source: The ClassicalReyan Ali of The Classical recently interviewed Dean Ambrose. Here are some highlights:
WWE pitching The Shield:
It wasn't ever pitched to us. It was very out of nowhere. It was a secret kind of idea. I have an idea—I'll save that for another time—[of] what the original, original idea was. It's just been ever-evolving. One day, it was just like, 'All right, you three are going to wear black turtlenecks and run in and beat up Ryback,' and we're just like, 'Uh, okay.' At the time, you're like, 'I don't even care.' I [had been] in developmental for over a year at that point and was just ready to pull my eyes out, so [with] any tiny, little bit of opening they'll give me, I was like, 'Yup, let's do it.' I'll kick in that door if you crack it open, and I think we all felt that way. But doing Survivor Series and interfering in a WWE Championship match on one of the bigger pay-per-views that the company does, that's like, 'Holy crap.' If you know what the deal is or not, you can't ask for a better spotlight than [that].
Who he'd like to work with:
Randy [Orton] is a guy. I'm on the same side of the fence as Randy right now, but Randy's a guy that I love watching work. He's a guy [where] I'll always stop and watch his matches.
Christian is just so unbelievably good. I mean, I always knew Christian was really good. Working with Christian, he's been here for so long and has so much experience, you realize his brain is a super-evolved version of my brain [with] the way he sees matches play out, the way he comes up with things, especially in tag matches and stuff like that. Christian's a guy who I've only had a small sampling of working with. Christian's a guy I want to spend a lot more time in the ring with.
It's awesome working with RVD, too. I'm a big ECW fan, so I got to work with him on a loop in California, and he's cool. He's friggin' RVD. He's got all the RVD spots and he's ageless and stuff. There's just countless guys that you want to work with for one reason or the other. I'm looking forward to diving headfirst into all of them.
Ambrose also talked about his other travel partner other than The Shield, the "Nope" phenomenon, working in CZW and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
