According to PWInsider, the contract that Ambrose rejected was a 5 year deal worth seven figures annually. It was also noted that money is no longer an issue for Ambrose as he has made enough money while being on the WWE main roster for 6 years and he doesn’t live an expensive lifestyle.
According to the Wrestling Observer, the main reason why Ambrose wants to leave WWE is that he doesn’t like doing “hokey things”, which includes scripted interviews/promos.
For those who don’t know, promos and interview segments nowadays are written by WWE writers and have to be said word to word by the WWE stars. Back in the day, wrestlers were only given bullet points (main things that they needed to cover while cutting a promo).
Below are Ambrose’s accomplishments in WWE:
– 1x WWE Champion
– 3x Intercontinental Champion
– 2x RAW Tag Team Champion
– 1x United States Champion
– 1x Money In The Bank
– Triple Crown Champion
– Grand Slam Champion
