As noted earlier, Dean Ambrose was not feeling the script given to him for his segment with Seth Rollins. Instead, Ambrose told Rollins to “slay the beast” in reference to Rollins’ upcoming match with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.
On Tuesday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer provided some details on what Ambrose was supposed to say. Basically, he was supposed to talk about everything The Shield has been through and he was supposed to mention Roman Reigns.
“Originally, he was actually supposed to explain why he would say ‘slay the beast’ but he didn’t so he said ‘slay the beast,'” Meltzer said. “It was about ‘we started together’ and the whole Shield thing and Roman Reigns and all that…”
This was also Ambrose’s babyface turn as WWE management apparently realized that his heel turn was poorly executed. It will be interesting to watch Ambrose on Raw over the next couple of months as he finishes up with the company.
As previously noted, Ambrose has told friends that he wants to continue wrestling after he leaves WWE. If that is the case, then you can bet AEW will want to start negotiations and if they can sign him then Double Or Nothing in Las Vegas (Ambrose lives there) would be a great time for him to debut.
