Earlier this week, PWTorch reported that Dean Ambrose handed in his notice and informed WWE that he would be leaving the company when his contract expires at the end of April. Soon after, WWE, in a rather unprecedented move on their part, confirmed the news in a statement.
The latest we heard on the situation came from Sean Ross Sapp of fightful, who revealed the statement put out by WWE was confirming information provided by people backstage – and with all things considered, the whole thing is more likely to be real than part of an elaborate storyline (you can read more about that here).
Now, thanks to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, we have more information on the deal Ambrose allegedly turned down.
The former WWE Champion is said to have rejected a five-year deal with “a downside of just over $1 million per year.”
