Dean Ambrose seems to be leaving WWE, but the company really wants him to change his mind. He had plenty of chances to change his mind over the past couple of days, but it seems like his mind is made up.
Mike Johnson noted on PW Insider Elite audio that Ambrose will be leaving the company in April or May, but WWE is still holding out hope that they could tempt him to stick around.
“As of today the plan is that he’ll be done the end of April or May 1st would be the final date on his deal. We’ve heard both dates so it’s either April or May. He is still on the road with the company. He’s going to be touring with the company until then and as somebody from the company told me he is still under contract they can always come back and make him an offer to make him happy.”
“Whether it be financial, whether it be a shorter schedule, whether it be a shorter-term contract, the story is not done yet. This is not a closed door. Honestly, every wrestler should be doing what Dean Ambrose is doing right now.”
He continued to note that as the landscape of pro wrestling is changing with the opening of All Elite Wrestling, you never know what could be out there.
Mike Johnson noted that it is a wise move for anyone to reject a deal from WWE so they can see what might fit best for them. Whether Dean Ambrose really leaves the company is another story, but he certainly didn’t seem happy enough for days of meetings to change his mind.
