SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Dean Ambrose just needed nine seconds to become WWE World Hvt. champion for the first time when he cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase on Seth Rollins at the MITB PPV on Sunday.
Yet, Ambrose said in a Boston radio interview that it was the most exhausted he’s felt after a match in his WWE career. Ambrose offered similar sentiments in his victory promo Monday night on Raw…
“I’ve never been more tired after a match in my life, because it was just like a big weight off my shoulders,” Ambrose told CBS Boston Radio on Monday.
“Just the responsibility I had to the people who stuck behind me for so long. I’ve been chasing that thing for going on two years now. I’ve come so close to rolling that boulder to the top of the hill, and it kept falling back down over and over. So it was just nice to get that sucker over the hill and say, ‘All right, now we can chill out for a second.’”
Ambrose said he got to sleep in his own bed on Sunday night since he lives in Las Vegas. He said he got a “good hour-and-a-half” of sleep before beginning his WWE Title reign Monday night on Raw.
Next up is his first weekend tour as WWE champion, including a Saturday night house show in Boston that he promoted on the radio. Ambrose said he’s ready to fight “any man, woman, child, any being, any monster that is in Boston.”
“Basically everybody you could possibly want to see is going to be at the TD Garden in Boston, because we love coming to Boston. It’s one of our best towns, our best audiences, and we’ve had a lot of great moments there. It’s kind of one of those shows that everybody looks forward to on the calendar. So everybody’s going to be in the building. I don’t know who’s going to step up. I always step up. I live at the plate, you know what I’m saying? So it could be anybody. Who knows what’s going to happen? But I’m going to be there, and I’m going to be taped up and ready to fight. So we’re going to see what goes down,” Ambrose said.
