• Backstage News On What WWE Officials Feel About Dean Ambrose’s Unhappiness In WWE
As we all know after Dean Ambrose’s appearance on Talk Is Jericho, Ambrose was unhappy and depressed while working in WWE because he had to deal with Vince McMahon’s terrible ideas and had lack of creative freedom.
Ambrose also noted that he got paid only $500 for his final WWE match, which is something that WWE pays to people for showing up but not working a show or to the extras used on the show.
Ambrose went on to blame Vince McMahon for producing WWE TV in such a bad way and he wants to prove that Vince’s way of producing WWE TV sucks by working with AEW and help in producing a better overall product.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials feel that Ambrose is a kind of guy who just can’t be made happy no matter what the company decides to do with him.
This most likely isn’t the case, but we’ll eventually find out if Ambrose (Jon Moxley) faces the same problem in AEW.
Below are Ambrose’s accomplishments in WWE:
– 1x WWE Champion
– 3x Intercontinental Champion
– 1x United States Champion
– 2x RAW Tag Team Champion
– 2016 Money In The Bank Winner
– 5x Slammy Award Winner
– Triple Crown Champion
– Grand Slam Champion
– Faced Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32
– Faced The Undertaker on SmackDown
