- Dean Ambrose recently spoke with the Fairfax Times, here are the highlights…
On The Shield's Role in WWE: "We feel like we're the backbone of the company. We go out there every night and show off the work ethic that rubs off on everybody we work with. We go out there every night to have the best national show — whether it's one or two matches, you got to work twice or whatever it is — we never take a night off."
On Winning The US Title: "The United States Championship goes back to greats like Harley Race and Ric Flair, so to be able to call yourself that is, for me, almost too high an honor. It still seems strange to me. I take a lot of pride in it. … No matter how many nights we've been on the road or how many countries we've been in — we've been on four continents and more countries than I can count and more American cities than I can count — I really put my heart and soul and every ounce of effort, every drop of sweat I've got into it every single night."
On Comparisons to Roddy Piper: "[Piper] was a legend and a hall of famer. He was a guy who stirred the pot and drew a good amount of money. I feel like I haven't really done anything yet. Not that I'm holding back — right now I'm just working as hard as I can in the role that I'm in. I still feel like I have a LOT of stuff in my back pocket that when the opportunity strikes … there's a lot more to me than people have seen yet."
