What’s the story?
Dean Ambrose is set to leave WWE after WrestleMania 35 according to PWTorch. The report claims that the former The Shield member has given WWE his notice and informed them that he is not willing to negotiate a new deal.
In case you didn’t know…
Ambrose made his main roster debut in 2012 as a part of The Sheild along with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. While the latter two have excelled as WWE Champions and Dean hasn't got that big push a lot.
He did win the WWE Heavyweight Championship once – by cashing in his Money in the Bank contract after Rollins retained his title by defeating Reigns in 2016. Apart from that, he has been the US Champion, 3-time Intercontinental Champion and also a 2-time RAW Tag team champions.
The heart of the matter
PWTorch report that Dean Ambrose is not happy with the storyline he has been involved in and is not happy with the WWE Creative. He rejected a raise and a new deal recently and made it clear that he was not going to renew at any cost.
Dean informed the WWE Management over the Rumble weekend that he will not be negotiating a new deal. He also made it clear that it was not about the money and that he was just frustrated with the direction of his character.
The contract stand-off might just as well be the explanation as to why he had an unceremonious elimination at the Royal Rumble. He also lost to Rollins clean on Monday Night RAW after interrupting the Rumble winner's promo with Triple H.
Dean will now be slowly pushed off TV and might be set for a series of losses and be used to put other superstars over before he leaves.Published 29 Jan 2019, 15:26 IST
