According to the Wrestling Observer, Ambrose is set to return to the indy scene as Jon Moxley sometime in June and it’s expected that Ambrose will be able to charge several thousand dollars per match on the indies (and make more while doing meet & greets).
Ambrose has bookings lined up with a lot of indy promotions and those will be announced soon.
Word going on is that Ambrose wants complete creative control of his character where ever he works, and he’ll obviously get that on the indies.
There’s speculation going on that Ambrose might sign with AEW or NJPW, but there’s no information regarding that as of now.
