As fans know by now, Dean Ambrose is set to leave WWE later this month when his contract expires. WWE has publicly acknowledged Ambrose's decision, turning it into a storyline to reunite The Shield for one last match last month. When Roman Reigns returned to the company in February after a four-month battle with leukemia, WWE was reportedly hopeful that Reigns could be "the Dean whisperer," acting as a bridge between the two sides. For now, it looks as if Ambrose is still on his way out.
Speaking to The Gorilla Position, Reigns discussed Ambrose's decision to leave WWE.
"I want him to stay. Dean, if you're listening, stay. Do not go. I'll buy you a bottle of Jack and beer every single night," Reigns joked. "We just want him to be happy. The selfishness in us wants him in our locker room, but as a friend and brother, I just want him to be happy. I want my friend to be where he wants to do be and have the proper placement for his life. Whatever achieves his happiness, I support him fully. I'm not gonna lie, we're selfish beings and I want my friends with me. Ambrose is a workhorse and I don't throw that term around lightly. Ambrose is a guy I can depend on 52 weeks out of the year. Whether he's coming or going, somebody is going to get to work with a brilliant superstar, somebody who believes in what he's doing, has a great passion to get better, and an amazing work ethic. He's going to land on his feet. Hopefully, it'll be next to me in the locker room."
Earlier this week, Seth Rollins discussed Ambrose's upcoming departure. You can view his comments here. Ambrose has been kept off television the last couple of weeks and is not currently booked for a match at WrestleMania on Sunday.
