Dean Ambrose leaving WWE
« on: January 28, 2019, 05:32:15 PM »
Quote
Dean Ambrose, a main event wrestler for WWE since debuting with The Shield in 2012, has given his notice to WWE that he will be finishing up when his current contract expires at the end of April, according to three PWTorch sources. He broke the news to management this weekend, including directly in a meeting with Vince McMahon, after being offered a new contract and a raise weeks ago.

Sources tell PWTorch that Ambrose has been long frustrated with the creative direction of his character and reached a breaking point recently. He’s indicated to WWE management this weekend he’s not interested in negotiating further and made it clear this isn’t about trying to get more money. One of his colleagues on the roster, when asked tonight about Dean’s demeanor lately and if there were any signs of discontent, said “he’s pretty much impossible to read.” He added, though, that Dean “hates hokey sh–” and, since so much of his character has been portrayed as hokey in the last few years, he’s not surprised that would have built up frustration leading to a breaking point.

https://www.pwtorch.com/site/2019/01/29/dean-ambrose-leaving-wwe-shortly-after-wrestlemania-when-his-contract-expires-in-april/

This actually explains a lot, including his poor effort level during matches at a time when he's been asked to do these corny things. Going to be interesting when he signs somewhere that lets him play the character he wants.

I'm happy that he's finally doing what he wants. Also happy to finally have it confirmed that Dean wasn't the one coming up with or agreeing with the terrible angles they were putting him in, which is something I always thought.

Dean could have been a big star in WWE if you look at how over he was at one point and also how over he managed to stay for so long and how fast he would re-heat every time they started to push him again. I don't blame him for finally giving up especially after coming back from an injury where he apparently got a life-threatening staph infection only to get a terrible gimmick and to see one of his best friends go down with leukemia.

I've been really frustrated with him in WWE and not been enjoying him at all but I'm interested to see what he can do outside of the WWE and he's easily a big enough star that AEW should sign him and I would actually watch if they did.

I mentioned in the TWIW thread that his over selling of the curb stomp Monday night reminded me of HBK’s ridiculous selling of Hogan’s offense when HBK had to do the job back in 2005. Makes sense now.

He was overselling all of the dives too. Overselling for obese, out of breath women. He's checked out.

He'll go to AEW and wrestle in a mask as Mr Wrestlecuck III.

Hopefully he's one of the 6-8 AEW has any interest in, according to Jericho. But for the love of Mitch, Jericho wouldn't forget Dean.

I don't think Renee will suffer, if only because Steph has to be smart enough to point out that punishing the EXTREMELY POPULAR FEMALE PERFORMER for something a man did won't go over well. That's the kind of bad PR that AEW could take and run with.

It's not surprising that Dean hates the schlocky crap he's been given. The guy gained notoriety by having bloody brawls, insane and profane promos, and being a main guy in CZW. None of that adds up to "slime in a briefcase" or "Bray Wyatt hologram" to me.

Best for everyone involved, I think.  Dean has been phoning it in probably since the Brock match at Mania.  In recent months he's been a major drag on the product and I basically check out whenever he comes out.

After the Brock match we still had his title reign and his time on Smackdown was good.  To me, they started really doing nothing worthwhile with him when they moved him to RAW.  Him and Miz made the most of corny material and then it was a waste, his injury and the bad booking he had since his return.

Keller reported this isn't the case and that he wants to go work somewhere else.

If it did turn out that he was burned out that badly, it would really suck for him as he's made nowhere near enough money to actually walk away from the wrestling business. He would probably have to keep working anyway like Del Rio or anyone else who obviously doesn't care anymore.

What? Ambrose made bank from his WWE run. He was a bottom top 10 paid guy and all the merch he pushed? Also reports I saw said he doesn’t live a big lifestyle and would be just fine financially.

He got pushed for five years, right? Spent one of those years at home with an injury, probably was just getting his downside. Was really only at the top of the card for a year and a half or so. How much do you think these guys get paid? Even if we assume that for some reason WWE was paying him a million a year, plus the expenses one incurs on the road all the time he's been in the business, or whatever he had in debt before this run, and taxes, that's nowhere near enough to live on for the rest of his life. Nobody wants to live like a Walmart employee just so they don't have to go to work.

He also said this:

“At this point, money or any kind of quantifiable statistics, titles or whatever, or any kind of validation from anybody is not really important to me any more at this point. The most important thing, the thing that makes me the happiest, is just being happy with a piece of work. Like an artist makes a watercolor painting or whatever, and they sit back and go, ‘I’m really happy with that.’ The thing that I value most in my past and my career at this point, I realize they’re just the stories that I’m more proud of that were told, that still stand up. Just good pieces of work. I want to be happy with the finished product. Whether that’s one match, or a longer story, or if that’s one interview, or whatever. Whatever it is. That’s the most important thing to me at this point. Because I’ve had all the other things. Out of every thing that there is, that’s still the most rewarding thing and the only thing that drives me or gets me really excited other than just the live performance and being in front of the crowd, is that artistic, creative satisfaction.”

So obviously he's not going to just sit at home.

I think he's obviously going to AEW.  I mean, he's had years to get fed up and quit, and he just happens to do it right before the next big thing in wrestling is about to start?  Honestly, i've never been a fan of his WWE stuff though.  But, maybe that's just because I hate WWE.

Sami Callihan is going to ditch those Christ geeks and reunite with Ambrose for the REAL OI4K.

Anyway, I was a bigger fan of Ambrose than most. I remember when he was first signed to FCW and watching him work down there. He had it all, facial expressions, technique, personality, the whole package. When he debuted on the main roster, I thought he'd be the hardest pushed of the Shield. It sucks that he won't be in my weekly viewing anymore but he was pretty unmotivated. I respect him for walking away when it wasn't fun for him anymore and look forward to see what else he does in wrestling.

I'm thinking he hit his breaking point over the promos after his heel turn where he had to bring up Roman's own health problems and mortality while he just got over his own issues with the infection he got after his surgery. There was probably no coming back from that since he's seemed to have checked out since then.

I don't remember them releasing a statement like this before, so that leads me to believe they don't think he'll change his mind.

I'm convinced they released it so that people won't be mad when they decide to send him home instead of giving him free publicity before jumping to a competitor.

No idea why people would think it's a work. That guy probably didn't intend for his career to turn out where he could spray other people with ketchup and make jokes about sticking needles in his ass.

Also, they gave him the IC belt, made him unceremoniously drop it after a few weeks, had him get eliminated from the Rumble by a new guy, lose to Seth last night and get run out of the ring by two women. Doesn't pass the work smell test to me.

Yeah. They're saying something so that they can get ahead of the rumors and just have him sit out his contract at home, IMO. Their fans are not going to get invested in a guy that they know is on the way out and really has no rub to give anyway.

I’m hoping this is a work only for it to be a long con to lead to Dean beating Seth for the WWE Title on his “last night” and getting a Summer of Ambrose storyline.

A work to this extent requires them to also work the other talent in a company where numerous talents have asked for a release. Suffice it to say that doesn't sound like a very good idea. I don't know why it's so hard to believe that the ketchup and germs man thinks WWE is a trash company to work for and he wants to go do something else.

I'm not saying I'm certain it is a work or anything close to that.  It very well could be legit.  But WWE coming out and announcing it right away seems very strange, which is why it sounds like it could be.  Especially with other wrestlers asking for releases now as well.  I could see Vince mocking that.

It just sounds awfully similar to what they have done with Dolph Ziggler "quitting" in the not so distant past.  I want to think it is legit, but in wrestling you always have to be a little bit skeptical when oddities appear.

They don't issue statements like that through their PR reps to work the public, especially as a publicly traded company (while I don't think Dean leaving is going to affect the stock price, the story of a top star leaving the company is enough to theoretically cause a small dip). Just last week they issued the statement about Ronda's contract status. I don't know that they're going to take him off TV but I do think under the circumstances they want the fans to start seeing him as a lame duck. I also think they want to undercut his leverage in case they think he's angling to get a bigger contract.

To me, the difference is he isn't asking for a release with plenty of time left like others.  He's just saying he isn't re-signing.

Dagger in my heart, man. I saw Dean face Tyson Kidd in a dark match around a year before the Shield debut. I was so fascinated by his mic work pre match. After the show I started researching his old stuff and was fan boying hard. I found a Twitter page that was antsy for his main roster debut, too.

When he won the title it was such a cool moment to have seen him go from dark match to WWE champion.

I don't make a lot of live shows these days. The last dark match I saw that was of any no one to star type substance it involved Heidenreich.

I eagerly anticipate Jon Moxley being a vicious, Piper-meets-Joker like asshole again.
