Video: Dean Ambrose describes a world in which he is WWE world heavyweight champion

Dean Ambrose, for whatever reason, has been given a bit of a push the past couple weeks, culminating in his participating in a Fatal 4-Way match for the WWE world heavyweight championship against Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Randy Orton at "Payback" on May 17, 2015, in Baltimore. Ahead of that, he sat down with Michael Cole for an interview to talk about what the world would look like if he was the new face of WWE.

"It's going to be so much fun. Triple H is going to be so mad, Stephanie McMahon is going to be so mad. The Authority and the whole regime is going to be so upset, and it's going to be very troubling times for me should I walk out of Baltimore on Sunday as WWE champion because they are going to try to get that thing away from me. And they are not going to stop at anything, and I'm going to enjoy that. What a challenge. Walk in every day to people trying to destroy you when you come to work. How much better could it be?

"Just the thought of reaching the top of that mountain. Buddy Rogers, Bruno Sammartino, Pedro Morales, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels; countless legends and people that I studied and learned from and aspired to be. To get up on that wall of champions, to be part of that... It's like they're looking every day for a new face of WWE, it seems, and after Sunday this might be it."
