• RAW Star Heartbroken Over Dean Ambrose’s WWE Departure
Former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose is set to leave WWE this month and his Shield brother Seth Rollins is heartbroken over it.
During a recent interview with Cathy Kelley, below is what Rollins had to say about Ambrose’s WWE departure:
“It breaks my heart. I get it. I understand this place can be frustrating. He’s a guy who’s been doing it nonstop for 15, 16, 17 years. Sometimes you just need to step away and take care of yourself. I wish him luck in whatever he wants to do.
I know how he feels about his creativity. Sometimes when it pulls him in a different direction, that’s just how he’s gotta be. I never imagined the three of us working anywhere else or not being here at the same time.”
