Update On Dean Ambrose Possibly Signing With AEW

Dean Ambrose wrestled his final match for WWE on Apr. 21 - where The Shield defeated Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin in their final moment together.

Ambrose hasn't appeared on television since, though he changed his Twitter name to "Jon Moxley" and tweeted out a video that revealed his latest gimmick. You can view it right here below.

Since leaving WWE, there has been speculation that Ambrose could head over to the AEW promotion. The company holds its first event - Double Or Nothing - this Sunday in Las Vegas. Might we see Ambrose debut there?

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t WrestlingInc.com), WWE is indeed interested in signing Ambrose, but there aren't any indications that he'll appear at Double Or Nothing. Meltzer speculates Ambrose could join AEW later in the year.

AEW has recruited a handful of big-named former WWE talents, including Chris Jericho, Cody and Brandi Rhodes, Pac (known as Neville in WWE), and Dustin (Goldust). They also signed major talents like Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks - Matt and Nick Jackson.

PWTorch was first to report that Ambrose would be leaving WWE when his contract expired after WrestleMania 35. It was said that he was tired of portraying a "hokey" character. Ambrose's wife, Renee Young, is still employed by WWE as one of the Monday Night Raw commentators.

Once Ambrose left WWE, he became perhaps the most sought-after wrestling free agent in the world. There will be no shortage of interested suitors, but AEW should be considered a favorite - given all their resources and star power. We'll just have to wait and see how things play out with Ambrose - but we at least know that AEW is interested in the former WWE Champion.

What This Means

This report shouldn't surprise anybody, as AEW will be bent on trying to add plenty of former WWE talents down the road - especially main eventers like Ambrose. The company should have no problem offering Ambrose what he wants, since he'd be a big-time addition and main event draw there.
