• Latest Rumor Regarding Dean Ambrose’s WWE Status
As seen on last night’s episode of RAW, Dean Ambrose not re-signing with WWE and leaving in April was mentioned multiple times.
Wrestling Observer is reporting that there are multiple rumors going on that Ambrose won’t be leaving the WWE.
As we noted last month via The Dirty Sheets, Dean Ambrose’s current WWE storyline is something that Ambrose has pitched to WWE Officials himself.
While it is true that Ambrose’s 5 year contract with WWE is coming to an end in April, the announcement that WWE made regarding Ambrose’s departure is a part of the storyline that Ambrose has pitched.
Ambrose pitched this storyline by proposing the idea of someone dying and then popping up on TV out of nowhere. While Ambrose understands that WWE can’t do exactly this because of the sponsors, but Ambrose pitched the idea of WWE announcing his departure, booking him like he’s done and then set up a major swerve down the line after his contract has expired.
The current agreement between WWE & Ambrose is that if Ambrose is able to create the buzz that he wants with this storyline, then he will get a new WWE contract with ‘right to refusal’ creative clause (something that current WWE Champion Daniel Bryan has as well).
The next few months are very crucial for Ambrose’s WWE future. If Ambrose fails to create a buzz that he wants, then he’s free to leave WWE when his contract expires.
