Dean Ambrose is in the interview area and he has something to say. He says that he doesn’t feel like talking but since FCW doesn’t want him to do anything else, he figures he should say something. Dean introduces himself and he says that you should believe the hype about him. He is every bit as good as they say he is. Everything is true about him and more. He says that he is one in a million and better than the best in the world.
Everyone pretends to be the best, but he is the best. If there is one thing that he cannot stand, it is being ignored. Being ignored even when he screams and begs for a match that is not going to happen. There is someone who knows that he will never beat him again. That person could barely beat him when he had a dislocated shoulder. Someone knows that he is an indestructible wrestling machine who gets better every day.
He is someone who never every trick in his book and knows counters to his counters. He is on another level. That person can sit at the announce table and watch him every week become better than Regal ever was.
