Dean Ambrose On The Shield
Ahead of the WWE’s live event in Huntington, West Virginia, this Saturday night, Dean Ambrose spoke about the early days of The Shield, staying on top of the roster, and the benefits of performing non-televised live events. Ambrose told The Herald-Dispatch that the benefits performing in a house show is the freedom and intimacy between the audience and performers, adding, “You go out there for the audience, and it’s just them for one night.”
In regards to The Shield, Ambrose said:
“They threw us right to the wolves. We clicked immediately. We go week to week. We’d figure it out, did a lot on the fly. It all worked out. It’s a means to an end. Three new guys come in and kick the door down. It’s very rare three personalities work like that. You could tell we resonate with people. I’ve made way more money, got a lot more things done, a lot more work without them.”
When it comes to staying on top of the main roster:
“It’s tough in any line of work to get to the top. You can’t quit when times get rough. Things are going to happen to you. You have to believe in your abilities to do the stuff and put your nose to the grindstone. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow. I’ve had an incredible journey. I love to do what I’m doing. I’ve been fortunate to travel the world. All kinds of memories, stories.”
