Dean Ambrose Wants To Elevate The United States Championship; Watch This Week’s WWE Inbox

Dean Ambrose Interview

Ahead of Sunday’s WWE live event in Ontario, Inland Empire Weekly conducted an interview with United States Champion Dean Ambrose. Ambrose spoke about difference between working for a multinational corporation like WWE as opposed to the “Wild West” of the independent scene, as well as working to entertain viewers at home instead of only the live crowd. In the following excerpt, Ambrose discusses holding the United States Championship:

“That feels pretty good,” Ambrose said regarding his title. “That’s one of those things you don’t really realize how cool it is until you hold that belt in your hands for the first time and you hear the crowd.  Now for me the biggest part of it is elevating the belt. I don’t believe a championship makes a wrestler and a wrestler makes a champion. I have to raise the profile even higher than the championship and make everybody want it because I have it. I want my performance to be at the highest level of anybody in the company.  I want to make everybody step up to me. I’ll create my own challenges; I want to make sure the energy is pointing to me and the United States championship. I don’t want it to be a trinket.”
