Dean Ambrose Talks How The Shield Split Was Handled, The WWE Locker Room Environment
Source: RVA MagDoug Nunnally of RVA Mag has an interview with Dean Ambrose, here are some highlights:
The Shield splitting up:
"You never know what's going to happen on Monday Night RAW. You always got to to tune in because anything can happen and the same things goes for us when we show up each Monday night. You never know what's lurking around the corner or what twist they're going to throw your way. The cool thing is The Shield never started going on the downslide. We went out at our absolute apex with a clean sweep of Evolution, one of the most decorated and dominate stables of all time. The cool thing to take away is that we did go out on a high point whereas other groups don't and I take a lot of pride in that.
"We're all still three of the best performers in the company and are still always going to carry that mindset and that work ethic and be that symbol of excellence. That becomes part of your psyche and you want to go out there every night, bust your ass, put on the best show possible, and refuse to be out-done by anyone. You're still going to see that from us. You won't see us working together in the classic Shield way, but all three of us with all of our egos and aspirations and desire are still going to be on your TV making our way up top. It's an exciting time for the fans."
The current locker room environment:
"We've just got a really good crew in the locker room. There are tons of guys I travel with or hang out with, but the whole locker room right now is just great. There's not that division of top guys and bottom guys now that there used to be or has been in the past. I think The Shield helped that because we're young guys who came in and said we're going to take over this company by working hard and busting our ass. There's been a lot of other people who came in after us and kind of took that similar mindset or copied it and it really helped things I think. It's just a really good locker room now and one of the best I've ever been in. Lot of young hungry guys that all like hanging out with each other and love the business and want to see each other do well. I think it means great things are on the way for the company, for all of us, and for all of the fans."
Ambrose also discussed Sunday's Money In The Bank pay-per-view, his friendship with Roman Reigns, if he's worried about getting lost in the shuffle and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
