WWE’s Dean Ambrose and Renee Young: Power Couple – Vegas Seven

In this week’s Vegas Seven, my interview with Dean Amrbose and Renee Young is the cover story. Great pictures by Krystal Ramirez:

It’s a path that shows the world really does work in strange ways. Six years ago, Ambrose was getting forks jammed into his forehead until he was streaming blood and powerbombed on thumbtacks in front of a few hundred fans. This year, he won the business’ biggest prize in front of 19,000 Las Vegas fans and hundreds of thousands watching on the WWE Network. But what probably means more to him is that the intensely private Ambrose snared something even more valuable: a rewarding life and someone to share it with.

This was a really fun interview to do, and I’m glad its gotten such a large reaction.

Money in the Bank & Big E in Vegas Seven

I’ve got two pieces in this week’s Vegas Seven about the upcoming Money in the Bank pay per view at T-Mobile Arena. This first is a look at the event itself:

Oh, Las Vegas, don’t you dare be sour … come to the T-Mobile Arena and feel the power.

For the first time in eight years, the WWE is bringing one of its sports entertainment spectaculars to town when its Money in the Bank pay-per-view headlines the new arena June 19.

The second is an interview with the New Day’s Big E:

The New Day’s Big E, who will help defend the trio’s tag team belts in a Fatal 4-Way match, will be a big (pun slightly intended) part of the action. Here he shares his thoughts on the match itself, competing in Las Vegas, what the fans don’t appreciate (yet) and much more, including unicorns and a time machine.

The WWE media folks were very helpful in connecting me with Big E on a tight deadline, and it was fun to get to write about this.  I’m really looking forward to all of the matches but now I’m particularly excited for the Fatal 4-Way.
