What's the story?

When the news was announced, it came as a shock to one and all in the WWE Universe. Dean Ambrose will no longer be associated with WWE after WrestleMania 35.

According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, as reported by, WWE is taking steps to prevent a mass exodus. They're primarily concerned about The Usos going to All Elite Wrestling.

In case you didn't know...

Ever since WCW shut shop, WWE hasn't really had a competitor in the same realm. Enter All Elite Wrestling, a company run by the Khan family, a dynasty with even more wealth than the McMahons.

The company is apparently scared that more and more of their talent may make their way to All Elite Wrestling to seek an alternative source of income. Chris Jericho has gone on record to say that he's signed the biggest deal ever in his career, upon signing with AEW.

WWE is taking steps to ensure that the talent in the company does not leave en masse.

The heart of the matter

So, any superstars whose contracts are on the verge of expiring are now being asked to re-sign and their pay is being upped by WWE. Moreover, WWE is determined to focus on the tag team division and actually push the talent in the division, unlike in the past when they've been a mere sideshow.

The rumour mill indicates that WWE is really concerned about The Usos moving to AEW. This is because The Young Bucks need opponents and who better than The Usos to power up the division in the brand? The contracts for The Usos will expire in April.

What's next?

Competition is good. It is good for the talent and it is good for the fans as well. Let's hope it forces WWE to pull up its socks after letting the product deteriorate over the years.
