Former WWE NXT Champion Samoa Joe has commented on the fact that Dean Ambrose had declined to sign a new contract with the sports entertainment company.
This deal was reportedly worth big bucks and would’ve seen him under the WWE banner for the next five years. Joe did so during a recent interview with The News Tribune.
Joe, who is slated to take on WWE Champion Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, and Kofi Kingston in an Elimination Chamber Match at this Sunday’s pay-per-view event, made it known that Ambrose will be missed.
“Dean’s a fantastic performer and there’s no doubt about it. Me saying that is like saying the sky is blue. As far as his departure, I think Dean’s the type of cat that he wants to do things that he’s into and if he’s not into what he’s doing at a certain time then he’ll have no problem stepping away and pursuing other things,” said Joe.
“If that’s the case then cool, more power to him. I think there are so many people who are wrapped up in the needs and wants of wanting to become a WWE superstar that they forget sometimes there other goals they want to achieve. I think Dean is a goal-oriented person and when he gets a goal in mind he’s going to try and accomplish it, more power to him. He will be missed.”
