Dean Ambrose is one of the great success stories in WWE of a top indie star that made his way to the big leagues.
Ambrose started off his professional wrestling career back in 2004 when he began working for the Heartland Wrestling Association (HWA). He remained there for six years in addition to working for various other promotions such as Insanity Pro Wrestling (IPW), Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), Dragon Gate USA, and many more.
In 2011 Ambrose was discovered by WWE and signed with their developmental territory of Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). He was in FCW during the period of time in which the brand underwent a change to what we know today as NXT.
Ambrose would make his debut on the main roster in November of 2012 as a member of The Shield, alongside Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. After having an extremely successful run with the faction the trio broke up and embarked on singles careers.
"The Lunatic Fringe" has gone on to win titles such as the Intercontinental Championship twice, the United States Championship, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and the RAW Tag Team Championships with Seth Rollins upon their reunion.
Today Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns have reunited for the time being to reform The Shield, however, plans for an full-out reunion have currently been put to a halt as Reigns contracted a virus that has been spreading around the locker room.
Now Ambrose and Rollins seem to be involved in the RAW vs. SmackDown angle going down at Survivor series as they will take on SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions The Usos and the event.
Recently Ambrose did a Q&A session with his fan website, dean-ambrose.net, to discuss a variety of professional wrestling topics. Ambrose is a violent character who's lunatic persona has really resonated with fans.
With that being said, it's no surprise what Ambrose said when he was asked about what he misses from the indies the most:
What are your thoughts on Ambrose saying he misses blood in matches when he worked the indies? Do you think the WWE made the right call in banning bleeding on purpose inside of matches? And should they bring blood back to drive some more mature audiences to the product? Have YOUR say in the comments section below, and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport’s WWE podcast is here!
