10He Wanted to Wrestle When He Was 16 But Wasn't Allowed Until 18
Ambrose fell in love with wrestling at a young age. So much so that he tried to become a wrestler at 16 in the Heartland Wrestling Association (AHA). However, the promoter told him to go to college, gain some weight, and wait a few more years. Ambrose couldn’t work for
them so he decided to train for them by attending classes. From there, he would start working for HWA by doing various things from selling popcorn to setting up the ring. Little did the organization know that this skinny kid would one day be a fan favorite of the WWE Universe.
