Taz has given his take on the way Dean Ambrose is being used ahead of his WWE exit.
The star is set to walk away from the company once his contract expires in April and he hasn't had much success in the ring since the announcement.
There are fans who reckon that The Lunatic should be winning matches and going out with a bang. Former WWE performer and commentator Taz, though, has explained that what's happening with Ambrose right now is exactly what should happen, adding that people who think that he shouldn't be losing on his way out simply don't know the business.
"I’m sitting there reading some this stuff and I’m like, ‘are these f**king people crazy?’ Really, are you out of your frickin’ mind? Do you expect the WWE to have Dean Ambrose look good on the way out the door? That’s called doing the honors. That’s the business," he ranted on the latest episode of The Taz Show (h/t Wrestling Inc).
"That’s what the business was built on. When you leave, and you go someplace else, or you just give your notice, and you’re leaving on your terms, you do the frickin’ job on the way out the door.
"It’s business. It’s the right way to do business. Anybody who says that [Ambrose should lose on his way out of WWE] doesn’t know the business. They don’t! You can read all the dirt sheets, all the f**king bulls**t online, and all the social media accounts. If you’re b***hing that a guy is going to be leaving, and he gave notice, if you’re b***hing about the way he’s going to be treated as he walks out the door, then you truly don’t know [anything] about the wrestling business. Nothing.
"That’s the right way to do business by WWE and the right way by Dean Ambrose.”
Taz added that he did several jobs on his way out of ECW and he's proud of it.
He also pointed out that Ambrose has been doing some of his best mic work lately.
“Dean Ambrose’s delivery in this last segment I saw him on with the Alexa Bliss deal, and when I saw him when got in Seth Rollins’ and Triple H’s face last week, two of the best, as far as what I’ve seen with his mic work, in a long time," he declared.
"Dean Ambrose’s performance was awesome and I think it’s because there’s a lot of weight off his chest and he could just be himself, and he knows he’s gone, and he can perform like he knows how to perform.”
What This Means
Ambrose's fans don't want to see him lose as his exit looms; that is certainly understandable. However, the recent script seems quite fair as it could pave the way for a new name to come to the fore.
Had the WWE made the decision not to re-sign him, things would have probably worked out differently. But, given that it was his choice, he should be fine with losing a few fights on the way out.
