Dean Ambrose may have wrestled his last match on Raw this week, but it wasn't the last the WWE Universe saw of him.
It almost feels like an eternity has passed since news broke revealing Dean Ambrose would be leaving WWE. His current contract comes to an end this month and he won't be signing a new one. It's odd for WWE to announce news like this, especially so far ahead of time. That has led some fans to think that this is all an act. Merely part of an elaborate storyline.
The bad news for Ambrose fans, which has to be pretty much everyone, is that this is indeed real. On Monday night, Ambrose competed in a match which was billed as being his last ever for WWE. It was hardly the greatest send-off. Bobby Lashley, irate from losing his Intercontinental Title at WrestleMania, decimated Ambrose. So much so that he had to be helped backstage.
Thankfully, that was not the last time the WWE Universe got to see Ambrose on Monday night. After Raw went off the air, Seth Rollins asked Roman Reigns to come to the ring. The two of them were then joined by Ambrose. Once The Lunatic had the mic in his hand, he was allowed to cut his very last WWE promo. Although not too over the top, you can tell why Vince McMahon wouldn't have wanted it to air on live TV.
Ambrose carefully walked the line between what was and was not okay to say. He dropped one swear word and also made a comment about what Arn Anderson thought of The Shield during its early days. The rest of what he had to say seemed to be extremely heartfelt. Confirmation that Ambrose likely feels as if he has to leave WWE for the sake of his career, and he doesn't necessarily want to leave.
As fans began to chant "please don't go," Rollins chuckled and informed them that he had already tried that. Once Ambrose had finished talking, the three of them put their fists in for one last time, paying tribute to the team they formed which brought them to the dance. We look forward to seeing what Ambrose has planned. We sincerely hope he isn't done with wrestling, and that we maybe see him back in WWE one day.
