WWE United States Champion Dean Ambrose of The Shield recently spoke to CityBeat.com to promote next Tuesday’s WWE SmackDown tapings from the U.S. Bank Area in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.
During the interview, Ambrose talks about how he got into wrestling, paying his dues on the indy circuit as Jon Moxley and his transition from WWE developmental to the main roster.
He also revealed his goals in WWE, which are nothing short of ambitious:
“To me, anything less than being the top guy in the industry, the top villain in the industry, the WWE Champion, is a failure. That’s a lot of pressure to put on yourself, but whenever I look at it realistically, that’s just how it is.”
