WWE Officials Reportedly Believe Dean Ambrose Is Lazy & Complacent

WWE Officials Reportedly Believe Dean Ambrose Is Lazy & Complacent

As seen on this week’s episode of RAW during the Miz TV segment, The Miz referred to Dean Ambrose and lazy and complacent. He also mentioned that Dean has failed to break the glass ceiling because he is lazy.

Dave Meltzer indicated on Wrestling Observer Radio that The Miz’s promo wasn’t far off from how WWE officials view Ambrose. Meltzer mentioned that when a talent cuts a promo in the style of Miz’s, it’s usually because an official within in the company believes there’s truth to it. He said it’s likely that someone backstage in WWE thinks Ambrose s complacent with his position in WWE.

    Thats a lie of all people brock lesnar is.

    • reed richards

      yeah but he already reached the highest level. he is a major draw and dean is not.

      • Christopher Davis

        Idc care what draw he has. I cant stand repetitive ass matches and constant suplexes. For example dean’s wrestlemania match with lesnar. Ambrose wanted to do so
        much for that match but brock refuse. Im like bro do you even care for a possible 5 star match?

        • PNMonkey

          see thats my argument for people who defend Lesnar. He’s supper lazy. Suplex suplex suplex suplex f-5 thje end. That is not a a match. That’s garbage. MMA fine that could work if the f-5 was allowed, but in WWE it’s repetitive and boring. Does Dean always put in 100% i doubt it, one match i felt he really mailed in ws his match against Ziggler and the back and forth between them going into it made me think it might but one of the best on the PPV but instead it was a dud. But the Lesnar match, man I know it was all Lesnar who didn’t want to do shit, no sell anything and get his way wit the minimum amount of work.

        • reed richards

          constant suplexes is what i want to see. funny how people complain about that. a german suplex is one of the best moves out there. you are lucky to see a match with 1 or two cool moves in wwe. i personally don’t really like dean anyway. i respect him to a degree but i could really care less about him.

    • We’re Here

      It doesnt have to be one or the other, they both can be. Brock has proven himself, he’s a legend, sure he could do more but if you’re getting paid what he is, can do 2 moves and still get the crowd reaction he gets then why do more? His character works in its current form, though i can sympathize with people who think he’s lazy.

      Ambrose though is inconsistent, and hasnt made enough of a mark on the business yet to justify getting complacent. I mean, it’s all opinions but does anyone really feel like Ambrose is working at the same rate he was 2-3 years ago?

      • Christopher Davis

        I understand lesnar’s legendary status and resume and how his draw can bring in money. i can understand that but let me ask you this. If you was to work CONSECUTIVELY…. giving more matches than anybody in a calendar year with little to no injuries. And to do it from 3 years ago to now? Hell yea i’ll tone down my work too shits exhausting 😂😂. But he somehow finds a way to make something enjoyable whether it comes to promos or backstage segments sometimes in the ring. Depending on who’s willing to work with him. Tbh i rather see dean wrestle than brock. His shit is repetitive and ambrose just comes up with something creative. But thats just me

      • stela verde

        And how is he exactly not working like he did 2-3 years ago? It’s not like Dean was doing crazy stunts in the ring before,his character was fresh from shield split so of course he was interesting then. They all were. Funny how being booked like loser can do wrestler credibility.

  • nahkmiyan

    miz is the smark’s wrestler

    • reed richards

      maybe the smart’s talker but he isn’t good in the ring.

    • Taylor Wilson

      the miz is actually great. should be on cena level

  • Ryzing_Terra

    So what you’re saying is Miz isn’t cutting his own promos but someone is feeding him ideas? Wow. That totally discredits his promos on DB and Cena

    • Bisky

      You serious? There’s nothing real or believable about a Miz promo, OF COURSE they feed Miz the majority of his lines. Is it really that surprising to you??

      • daleh33

        They feed all of the wrestlers ideas. It’s the WWE that creates these match-ups and how matches and feuds will go. I loved the promos where they had him doing the Cena Nikki stuff about she wouldn’t be where she is with out him. I wouldn’t doubt that there are officials back stage that know exactly how she got to where she is just like her sister.

        • Bisky

          Yeah, that’s pretty much what I’m saying to Ryzing.

  • Melissa A. Klein

    I’m not a Dean Ambrose fan but he fucking works he doesn’t take a lot of time off that they don’t think he takes a day off that is disrespectful to him

  • Chance Augeri

    The Miz sucks and kisses ass so I wouldn’t give a rats Ass what he says.

    • Kathy Banks

      I totally agree with that

  • RyanWoody

    Ha, this is such bs. Dean and Vince are as tight as R-Truth and Vince. Not only that; ambrose has worked the MOST matches including live events the past few years. Aswell as covering for Reigns during his suspension. He’s far from lazy. This is completely unfounded. Miz just used Austin’s podcast to get people talking and put some buzz on this feud. And dirtsheets are having a slow news day or something. Wanna talk Lazy. Brock has to be the laziest. Dean’s a laidback dude. Sadly; a lot of people don’t get out much and meet other personalities.

    • daleh33

      If ya read the whole article it says, even in the title “WWE OFFICIALS”, Vince isn’t the only official . He is the biggest but not the only one. There are Steph, Hunter, and a shit load of producers too. I didn’t get the idea AT ALL it was Vince reading this.Talk about taking shit out of context. Just because Vince may love Dean, doesn’t mean everyone else backstage does. Just like fans, not all of them like Dean/

      • PNMonkey

        Got to agree with you. To me this reeks more of Steph and Hunter really. I just never felt they thought much of him, just like Sami Zayn really. He doesn’t carry himself as the Ideal WWE employee it seems and he’s so laid back that he has to be lazy. Hell Austin said as much the same thing when they did the podcast last year. And it’s like well he tries to get himself over but when you give him shit there is only so much you can do.

        • daleh33

          Dean reminds me of Dolph, not in the ring but just the way he carries himself and does interviews. Dolph has gotten in trouble over and over for speaking his mind and not always kissin the top guy…CENA’s ass and sayin what he wants. I couldn’t count the times the WWE has told him to take down tweets or told him to not answer certain questions. I think they see the same in Dean, a guy that doesn’t always think WWE first and real answers second. Callin him lazy would be a way to try and keep him down.

          • Kathy Banks

            I don’t see Dean kissing no one butt he just says whats on his mind and that is it ! I like Dean and I like Cena

          • daleh33

            I love the guys that don’t kiss as to get further on. I can’t stand the guys that do. I love Dolph and Dean, can’t stand Cena. Dolph too is a guy that says what he means and doesn’t pull the WWE line like Cena, just like Dean doesn’t. Cena has been kissing Vince’s ass for years, even former WWE people have said that yet no one believes them because they claim it’s out of spite. Nope, cena had been kissing ass and that’s why vinnie loves him.

  • Ivan

    mix is the best ass kisser in WWE as he says whatever is on WWE officals lips

  • stela verde

    Dean lazy?!Hahahah,you’re kidding right. Nah,Miz is reapeating what Cena said to Dean last September. It was BS then and it’s BS now. He did the same when he cut that promo on Bryan. he’s saying that to make feud interesting but watch when Dean turns heel.Everybody will start praising him again….

  • Omar

    Makes sense why they’ve kept Miz around all this time. Miz has the perfect character to say all the cunt-y things officials are thinking whenever they want to publicly-shame the talent.

    Such a classy company.

    • Bisky

      LMAO… from what I can tell that seems pretty accurate. Keeping Miz this long literally serves no other purpose unless they were just using him to get Maryse back.

  • Laura Ann Lee

    Excuse-fucking-you? Lazy and complacent? I’m sorry but who has a WWE Universal Champion who doesn’t even regularly defend or even show the fuck up? Dean is out there every night, pouring his heart and soul out to entertain us, the WWE Universe. If anything, He’s being screwed by YOU ALL. He deserves so much and you all take it away. Lazy and complacent is Brock Lesnar; When’s the last time we’ve seen a WWE Title match on an episode of Raw? It’s always on PPV. Lazy and complacent is Goldberg. Lazy and complacent is The Rock. Lazy and complacent is your fucking WWE Creative Team. Dean has carried Smackdown on his back. He founded The Shield. He’s held the US Championship for 351 Days, but you only let him defend it 4x, 2 of them not even televised. If anyone is lazy and complacent, It’s all of you. He wouldn’t be your definition of “Lazy and complacent” if you booked him correctly?! Hell, You put his match on the WrestleMania kickoff show? You make him lose every championship title he wins. You build him up and then kick it down. You turn down his suggestions. You favor Lesnar, Goldberg, and The Rock. Leave those three in the past and focus on your current WWE Superstars.

    • james aldi

      Dean is. Shown. He. Very competitive with. Every. Super star he. Meets.

    • ScottyPNR

      To be fair when the rock had the world title he only had one defense vs cena(never got a rematch) and when he won it he was on every raw til wm when he lost it. Goldberg did more raw shows in his short 6 months than least has in the last year.

    • Kathy Banks

      I love CENA AND AMBROSE.

  • Rum N Coke

    It was nice to see the Miz speak the truth.

  • Dipset 4 Life

    Didn’t this mofocka work the most matches of anyone in the last 2 years?

  • jrock2310

    this is so effing stupid. so by that logic, should I assume that WWE officials agree w/ everything miz said about cena? GTFOH!

    by all accounts, ambrose is WWE’s ironman. he is in decent shape, works safe, doesn’t cause trouble, appears to be low maintenance, works hard, seemingly never misses a show and is always ready to go.

    never mind that he is likely one of their better talkers and workers.

    • daleh33

      actually you should believe some of what he said about cena helping nikki true because it is. there are people backstage including legit women wrestlers that think the same. nikki has been taking up a spot from someone who could actually wrestle and is more interested in it than being on tv or movies. the bella twits did an interview when total nitwits first came out saying they would love to do movies. the same for brie, if she wasn’t with DB she would’ve been still just a twit that walks HOFer’s to the stage when they got inducted.

      • jrock2310

        I don’t care if it’s true… but WWE officials opinions? seriously… this is how you treat one of your work horses? what more could dean do? do they feel the same about KO? what’s the big difference b/t KO and ambrose?

        I believe the quote is “WWE officials think ambrose is lazy and complacent.” … how are they forming that opinion? without context it could be dean’s laid back demeanor and they’re referring to that as lazy.

        I just hate posts like this w/out context. THAT is just lazy.

      • Kathy Banks

        I think that is all BS

  • Herb

    I think what they meant that he doesn’t do anything else than wrestle. Dean has been a face for a couple of years yet he doesn’t do other WWE stuff like charity or social media. Assuming it’s even true what the Miz said.

  • ScottyPNR

    Miz isn’t that good at cutting a promo. He’s a broken record. Says the same shit every week. Ambrose isn’t much better but he Doesn’t give a shit. He’s not.out there to cut a promo.

  • Ivan

    *cough* JBL *cough*

  • We’re Here

    Probably because he is. the only programs he’s worked that were top notch since the shield break up were with Rollins and AJ, the KO and Wyatt feuds were ok but could’ve been more. Dude is the most average worker in the company right now, and with more and more talent coming in he’s only going to keep slipping down the card if he doesnt kick it back into that gear he was in with the Shield.

  • LaurenYorkStan

    I agree
