Dean Ambrose recently spoke to The Asbury Park Press. Here are some highlights:

His first WrestleMania experience last year:

“It’s always trippy for me to be in front of that many people because it’s just kind of hard to understand. Like, wrestling in front of 20 people or 100 people can be a little weird, but wrestling in front of a sold out ‘Monday Night Raw,’ 13,000 people, it’s kind of above your scope of understanding people. It’s just kind of this big, giant mass of noise. So actually, in a lot of ways, it’s easier. But it’s cool to feel the electricity going on in the towns right around this time, getting ready to go out in front of 80,000 people at WrestleMania, and that’s what you look forward to every year.”

“Coming out at the 50-yard line at MetLife Stadium and feeling the rumble of 80,000 people for the first time at WrestleMania 29 was something that I’ll never forget, and that was right there (in East Rutherford), so it’s a good place to be to get in the right mental state for WrestleMania.”

Not being a traditional heel or babyface:

“I’m just trying to go out there and just do what I do authentically and just be me, and do things the way I want to do them and look at the world the way I want to look at it. If people like it, cool, I appreciate that, and if you don’t, I don’t care. I’m maybe the only guy who might have that attitude. But I’m the only guy who can get away with stuff that would be despicable, deplorable stuff if done by anybody else, but done by me it’s a little bit different. I’m not squeaky clean and I’m not a cookie-cutter pretty boy or anything, so I don’t want to try to portray that and I’m not going to do things that way. If you like me, cool. If you don’t, then I really could care less.”

David Otunga recently spoke to The Chicago Tribune. Here are some highlights:

 His new role on the RAW Pre-show:

“It kind of fits with what I’ve been doing as a legal analyst on HLN and CNN. It’s great to be back. I was off for a while and missed it greatly. (WWE) is family.”

Taking time off from the ring:

“I needed to spend more time with my family and son. But now I really want to get back in the ring. I hear it 20 times a day from fans: ‘When are you coming back?’ My son is like ‘Dad, I want to see you wrestle again.’ He’s five and now of the age where he and his classmates are big into it.”
