• Dean Ambrose Lied To Vince McMahon, Worked Everyone In WWE
As we noted yesterday, Vince McMahon is livid at Dean Ambrose for joining AEW and signing a multi-year deal as Ambrose told WWE that he didn’t want to sign a new contract with them because he wants to pursue a career in Hollywood.
Brad Shepard has also confirmed this and noted that Ambrose lied to Vince McMahon and everyone in WWE:
“Vince was actually furious. He was fuming mad because, and I have confirmed this with multiple sources, Dean Ambrose a.k.a Jon Moxley worked Vince McMahon and WWE – he worked everybody.
So that was literally the expectation that he gave WWE (that he’d be back). He lied to Vince, he lied to everybody and said he was just going to make a movie in Hollywood.
So WWE would have never given him such a nice long send-off if they thought he was going to AEW, that’s what I was told.”
