WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose recently spoke to Philly.com to promote tonight's WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view, which takes place in "The City of Brotherly Love."
Below are highlights from the interview..
On fond memories he has of Philadelphia, the site of tonight's WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view: "I was living in Philadelphia when I got signed by WWE. I was sitting there one afternoon, I just woke with a headache or something. I got a call from WWE that I thought was a prank, so I blew it off. Later in the day, I got more phone calls and I realized they were trying to hire me. It was completely out of the blue. I had figured if it was my career destiny to be an indie cult hero, then so be it."
On his preparation for the lengthy Royal Rumble match: "I'll take long, long runs and long bike rides. I'm always training for stamina, anyway, because I'm never going to be the biggest guy or the strongest guy. I train for endurance and agility. I'm not going to throw 27 people over the rope at one time, but I am prepared to be pounded on for 60 minutes or so."
