Dean Ambrose spoke about the Shield in a recent interview. Here are the highlights…
On The Origins of the Shield: "No one really came up with The Shield. It's an organic thing," Ambrose said. "We've never said, ‘This is what The Shield is going to be.' We just go out and let things flow. We do a lot of stuff off the cuff. We are unpredictable, and that's what makes us so dangerous."
On Trying to Outwork Everyone: "We go out there and try to outwork everyone else. We do what we have to do every night. If I have to defend my U.S. Title, wrestle in a six-man tag match and then go out for another match that's not televised, that's what I do. That's how The Shield competes. We get the job done."
On Their Current WWE Role: "We are basically paid mercenaries," Abrose said. "If someone needs a job done, they pay The Shield. Lately, we've been in the middle of this power struggle that's going on. Triple H has paid us to do a job, and that's what we will do. I'm sure we will be called upon in Birmingham. If The Shield is in the building, we are going to make an impact."
