Dean Ambrose has revealed that he wasn’t too fond of WWE’s attitude era and he actually believes that it was rather boring.
Ambrose made the comments during a discussion with the Pittsburgh Tribune, and he didn’t just have harsh words to say about Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Mick Foley, and Triple H’s efforts in the late 90s, he also declared that John Cena is boring too.
However, it was Ambrose’s remarks about the Attitude era that were the most shocking. Not only did the athlete declare that it was mostly comprised of terrible jokes, but he also compared it to a certain tabloid talk show from the same era too.
“A lot of people talk about the attitude era being so great but a lot of it was terrible crap, sex jokes and over-the-top terrible bad comedy. It was Jerry Springer-like. They made a joke about a woman’s breasts. Hilarious, but where’s the wrestling? I look back on a lot of stuff now, and I’m like where’s the wrestling? It’s just a lot of crappy jokes.”
Ambrose, who admitted that his dream opponents would have been Mick Foley or Bret Hart, also revealed that he isn’t a big fan of John Cena. In fact he thinks that the wrestler is one of the most boring people on the WWE’s roster and that he repeats himself when he is on the microphone – something he insists he doesn’t do.
“There’s a lot of guys in WWE, you would know who they are, you know you’re going to see the same thing every single match. You know you’re going to hear the same thing every time they pick up a microphone.
You know John Cena is never going to get mad at you no matter what you do. You could steal his dog or set his house on fire and he’s not going to get all that mad at you. He’s going to come out and do the same thing he always does. Me, I’m not like that. I get pretty upset pretty quickly.
I don’t like having an entrance or anything like that too set in stone. A lot of guys come out and have the exact little dance or exact little thing that goes off at the right time with the pyro. What if I’m not in the mood to do my little dance this week?”
What do you think of Ambrose’s announcement?
