Dean Ambrose Discusses WWE’s Creative Team, Schwarzenegger

The Miami Herald recently interviewed WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose. Below are some highlights:

Ambrose on filming a WWE 2K16 commercial with Arnold Schwarzenegger: “That was crazy. I didn’t know anything about it until I got there that day. ‘Terminator’ is one of my favorite movies. To do a complete reenactment of one of my favorite parts in the movie, working with Arnold Schwarzenegger and he is giving me the Terminator eyes. It was so surreal. It was so trippy. The word I use to describe everything with the whole ‘WWE 2K16’ experience. So it was very cool. It’s one of those bonuses you get while living the life of a WWE superstar. The cool stuff you get to do.”

On working in WWE developmental: “I kind of miss that whole NXT thing. When I was there it was Florida Championship Wrestling with Seth Rollins and the other guys who were there. I wrestled on like local access Florida TV in front of 30 people. It was a tiny little situation. I felt like we were distanced from the rest of the company. We felt we were on an island that WWE didn’t even know we existed. That gave us the chip on our shoulder. That gave us the motivation when we got there and the attitude we needed to take over WWE when we did. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It’s great for those guys. Now they don’t have to worry about being on an island wondering if anyone knows them. They have their own TV show every week. They get to go on tour and travel. They get to be their own brand. It’s like a whole other brand of WWE. It’s just like a shoot-off of Raw or SmackDown.”

Ambrose on developing his character: “There is no creative process to come up with a character of Dean Ambrose. Dean Amborse is collective experience of 29 years of life. It’s the good, the bad, the ugly, after 10 years plus of wrestling. Everybody goes through their own life experiences. The good, the bad and the ugly that has formed me, shaped me and created the person I am today. That is what you see on TV. I don’t try to get anybody to like me or hate me. I just do what I do. If you are good at what you do, good things follow. I just happen to be very, very good at what I do.”

VIDEO: Hulk Hogan Says He’s Not Racists, Wants Forgiveness

Former WWE Superstar Hulk Hogan appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America for an interview where he addressed his racist rant scandal. He was interviewed by Amy Robach, which was recorded last Thursday (August 27). You can check out some highlights and a video of the interview in the player below:

Hogan on wanting forgiveness: “Oh my gosh, please forgive me. Please forgive me. I’m a nice guy. I’m not the Hulk Hogan that rips his shirt off and bang, bang slams giants. I’m Terry Bollea. I’m just a normal man.”

Hogan on why he is not a racist: “No, I’m not. I’m not a racist. I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I’m embarrassed by it, but a lot of people need to realize that you inherit things from the environment and when I grew up, it was South Tampa…it was a rough neighborhood, very low income, and all my friends…we greeted each other saying that word. The word was thrown around like it was nothing.”

Hogan on if he inherited a racial bias: “I would say that is very fair. The environment I grew up in….all my white friends, all my black friends, to hear that word on a daily basis. That’s how they would greet me in the morning. ‘Good morning, so and so.’ I think it was part of the culture and the environment that I grew up in.”

Hogan on being forgiven by his daughter Brooke: “If anyone should have disowned me, it should have been her. She should have been the one to throw me out like the trash. Instead, she showed me more love than anybody.”

Hogan on how you should not throw someone aside for making a mistake: “Just because a person makes a mistake. You don’t throw them away. If everybody at their lowest point was judged on one thing they said and all of a sudden their entire career was wiped out because of one thing they said, 10 or 20 years ago, it’d be a sad world. People get better every day. People get better.”
