A landmark study published today in the new Harvard Review of Popculture Idolatry reveals that professional wrestler Dean Ambrose is the most crushed-on entertainer on earth, with a 100 percent crush/mancrush rating among wrestling fans.
The comprehensive study — which surveyed thousands of male and female wrestling fans of every socioeconomic background, geographical situation and sexual orientation — found that every wrestling fan alive “would love to spend some quality one-on-one time, in one form or another, with Dean Ambrose.”
Although Ambrose’s popularity among WWE’s heterosexual female audience was previously well documented, the new study reveals a staggeringly high mancrush rate among “straight males who just think they’d totally get along with Ambrose like buds.”
The wrestling fans surveyed fell into the following categories:
- “Would like to go on a date” with Ambrose: 31 percent (predominantly female)
- “Would like to kiss/copulate” with Ambrose: 28 percent (predominantly female)
- “Would like to have a beer, maybe shoot some pool or try some new submission holds and, you know, bro stuff” with Ambrose: 39 percent (predominantly male).
Interestingly, one category got a unanimous response rate across all those surveyed:
- Jealous of Renee Young: 100 percent.
