The news that Dean Ambrose will be leaving WWE post-Wrestlemania appears to have surprised the majority of people. It is rumored he was offered a lot of money to stay but simply wasn’t interested in the offer.
Speaking with Busted Open Radio, multiple time champion, Dolph Ziggler, offered his thoughts on Ambrose’s decision.
He admitted that Dean’s decision surprised him and confessed he didn’t know too many people that are close to the situation that could offer further insight.
“I didn’t see that coming,” Ziggler said. “He’s always got something going on and is always in a prominent role, doing something great and he’s liked by the fans. He could just try to move on and do some other stuff. I can understand. It’s hard to read him sometimes. He’s a ridiculously nice guy and loves the business.”
Commenting on Ambrose’s attitude and style, Dolph said, “[He] Definitely does his own thing. Kind of in his own world a lot. I’m friends with his wife [Renee Young] and we talk all the time. But Dean and I, if we’re putting a match together, we talk, but otherwise….really friendly guy, loves wrestling, loves having a good time but definitely does his own thing. Maybe he’s looking to do his own thing some more.”
There was a lot speculation over Ziggler’s WWE career recently, with the Showoff claiming to be on ‘hiatus’ with WWE. He also stated he wasn’t scheduled to be in the Royal Rumble matchup. Dolph would eventually turn up during the Royal Rumble as the number 28 entrant. He would eliminate former tag team partner, Drew McIntyre.
