• Main Reason Why Dean Ambrose Wants To Leave WWE
As we noted earlier, PWTorch reported that RAW wrestler Dean Ambrose is very frustrated with the creative direction for his character and wants to leave WWE when his contract expires in April after WrestleMania 35.
Ambrose was offered a new contract and a raise, but he informed Vince McMahon directly in a meeting that he wants to leave.
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).
