    Ambrose might have gotten injured at a house show this weekend.....

    Apparently he took a Claymore kick and the ref threw up the X...no more details as of yet.

    Seems unaffected based on Raw last night, maybe just a stinger or something.

    If they do another reunion, can it be Reigns that turns this time and he can be like “Haha, you guys really suck. And the whole leukemia thing was a lie, too...”

    They would have to do what was suggested in another thread of:

    Roman turns on them b/c they were not there for him during his battle with leukemia.

    Oh man, I'd be so fucking in on this if it happened.

    Just a massive middle finger to everyone.

    I hope Roman claims it to be his yard again, too.

    The main page is reporting that Ambrose has some bookings in May now, which the article also implies that either Ambrose signed a new deal, or will.

    I do not know which thread I said it in, but I said that if/when Roman comes back, Ambrose would probably re-sign. I would love to see an Ambrose/Reigns program as that is the only one we haven't seen yet.

    To add onto what Powder said, the same article mentioned Roman doing an autograph session and being asked about Ambrose, and Toman replied “We’ll work on that.” Or something along those lines. Backstage reports are also Ambrose is the happiest he’s been in a while since Roman came back, and that part of his frustration was having to use the leukemia angle with Rollins.

    The article was amended to remove Ambrose from those dates. Hmmmm...

    Maybe the contract talks are not finished.

    Well no, of course they're not. They'll keep talking to him until the last moment. They'll probably keep talking to him until he's signed somewhere else. But if he feels he's being misused, and doesn't like his spot, having a friend back isn't going to drastically change that. It might make leaving harder, but if he needs some time out of there he'll have to do what's best for him. Cell phones and email exist.

    Exactly. To be honest, I think Dean wants time away from all wrestling. He's had that with injury but I don't think he's happy with what he's been doing for a long time, just my speculation of course. Maybe they can do something that would make him want to reup again but he's probably been fed false promises before. Being happy to see Roman again doesn't mean he's happy at his job.

    Except every single person that has reported on this story, including the guy who broke it (Wade Keller) said that Dean isn't tired of wrestling, he's tired of WWE. I haven't listened to it but the podcast he apparently did with Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins is also said to have indicated his passion for wrestling is still there. The guy just wants out and he should leave even with Roman back. People have to remember here that it's not just WWE misusing him, it's that WWE is asking him to re-sign for FIVE YEARS! That was the initial offer and there's no way with the ever changing landscape that WWE is going to lesser the years; they want a full time commitment. If you're Ambrose, why would you suddenly change your mind and sign up for five more years when WWE creative cannot be trusted? So what if his friend is back; I've worked with friends myself in the past and that didn't change the fact that the job was shitty and I had to get out of it. And like Coach said, there's ways to stay in touch if they want to.

    Unless WWE suddenly overhauls the creative process and lessens Dean's offer to three years, neither of which are happening, then he's out and he will be wrestling elsewhere. And he won't be the only one before the end of the year.

    Damn, what a send off.

    I think after getting the farewell he did there is very little chance Dean shows up in another major organization any time soon.

    With him now gone at least for the time being where do you think Dean's career tanks on an all time scale?

    I feel like I've had to say this 9,000 plus times now but what's one more; there is no evidence Dean is done. Wade Keller specifically stated in his initial report, and has not walked back on it since, that Dean wasn't done with wrestling, he was just done with WWE. I've seen the footage from these send offs (feels like there's been 30 of them by this point) and in each one you get a brief glimpse of his frustration; at the RAW after Wrestlemania he made a quick jab at WWE's expense about having the fans sit through three hours of the show, was openly mocking WWE booking his farewell over and over again with Rollins and Reigns in the Michael Cole interview and then at the end of that interview pretty clearly stated he no longer was under anyone's control and could do what he wanted. And in between all that he still seemed pretty passionate about wrestling in the rest of his speeches. So until we go months and months without him appearing anywhere, I don't buy it. The only people who have ever said he'd be taking a long break are fans who didn't want him to leave or Ryan "Sasha and Bayley were crying on the floor" Satin. Every other reliable reporter has been saying he was going to continue to wrestle.

    Now why would WWE give him this big send off otherwise? My guess is they just wanted to milk The Shield gimmick as much as they could a few more times while also making sure they didn't burn bridges with Dean on the way out. It's also very likely that up until the last minute they were trying to get him to stay and he just never budged. Really though, at the end of the day he wasn't treated all that differently than any other guy leaving. It seems that way because of The Shield stuff but take that away and his last four months before departing were losing almost every match, getting written off by Drew McIntyre twice to lesser effect each time out and then getting humiliated by Bobby Lashley after Lashley said he was going to beat Dean and steal his wife. The guy didn't even get a Mania spot AND wasn't even used last week when there was a shortage of wrestlers due to travel issues. The Shield stuff makes it look better than it was, but in reality Dean's departure wasn't that much different.

    What a coincidence; that's the same thing I say when the Mariners are eliminated from playoff contention every year!

    So it's time to move this thread. And change the name of it too. Jon Moxley rides again!


  23. #143
    Or is it Mox?

  24. #144
    Either way, really gritty. Already better than anything he's done in years. Not saying it's all up hill from here, but good to see some sort of vision for him.

    The video is fire:

    https://twitter.com/JonMoxley/status...38186410205184

    Breaking out of the prison he's been in, fleeing the Bog Dog and walking past the Viper bar. I might be overinterpreting it here, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are more hidden references in there too.

    It's a little on the nose, but it did get me more excited about the possibility of Moxley out in the world than anything else has so far. Gonna wait for him to debut somewhere before I change the thread though.

    Few reports surfacing today that Impact have joined the battle for his signature in the last few days.

    I think he'd be absolutely nuts to head that way. Impact has improved from their lowest point in many ways but they have no hype whatsoever right now and their brand is still poisoned despite their best efforts.

    And that's a great way to burn your bridges with Vince. That would make things for Renee Young a lot more awkward.

    And going to AEW wouldn't? AEW the company that's backed by the Khans and already has talent around them that WWE has had and/or wanted? I don't believe in any burned bridges in WWE forever but if I did, Moxley going to AEW would burn that bridge way faster than life support Impact.

    If Jon Moxley decided to go back to WWE tomorrow and become Dean Ambrose again they'd take him back in a heartbeat. The same goes for CM Punk. Neither of these guys burned any bridges with WWE because at the end of the day they're big enough stars that WWE would instantly take them back. The problem isn't that Moxley burned his bridges (or will if he goes to AEW, Impact, wherever) with WWE, but that, like Punk, WWE burned their bridge with him. They spent so many years giving him what he felt to be shit material that he just couldn't take it any more and here we are. I think the fact that WWE did all of that Shield stuff and treated him as well as they did on the way out (though not as well as most claim because he still lost in humiliating fashion most of the time), only for him to then still decide to leave and go elsewhere should be telling of his mindset. They offered him money, they tried convincing him up to the final minute to stay, they treated him better than most guys leaving are treated...and he still left. The bridge was burned; it was just WWE doing the burning. That's why we're here.

    So no; regardless of what Moxley does, be it go to AEW, Impact or just stick to the indies, he won't have burned his bridge with WWE because they'll always want him back. It's them who burned the bridge down and unless WWE becomes the only big game in town again or can eventually give Mox what he wants, I don't think you'll see him back until the Hall of Fame. We all thought in time that Cody Rhodes and even Punk would return despite feeling creatively unsatisfied; one of them is still retired (though perhaps not for long) and the other started a company as opposed to going back. I see Moxley going down a similar path.

    He would burn bridges either way, but at least with AEW (if he wanted to work at another promotion), it would be more beneficial for him.

    Hard to imagine WWE wouldn't happily snap up anybody with even slight name value no matter how they were associated with AEW or any other promotion. They might not use them well when they get them, but that's another story.

    Either way, it sounds like he's signed on to do a movie, so the return of JoDean Ambroxley will have to wait for a couple of months, I think.
