Dean Ambrose potentially set for time off from WWE

Published Add your comment

According to various reports that have surfaced online, Dean Ambrose looks set to be taking a leave of absence from WWE following his rematch for the WWE Championship at No Mercy in just two weeks time. 

The former Champion was defeated by AJ Styles at Backlash earlier this month and now walks into a triple threat match that also includes 15-time World Champion John Cena, in the hopes of reclaiming the title that once belonged to him. 

These reports now suggest that Ambrose could be missing from WWE TV for up to three months taking him both off screen and off the road until The Royal Rumble in January 2017.

Whilst various reports suggest that Ambrose is taking time away from the company in order to be a part of another WWE Studio's film, following the success of 12 Rounds 3 Lockdown. There are many that also speculate that Ambrose is in need of some time to rest and recharge his batteries after being a part of more matches in 2016 than any other wrestler on either roster. 

Ambrose has been receiving some negative reactions from the WWE Universe recently and this could be one of the reasons he was forced to drop his WWE Championship two weeks ago. With a heel turn likely in his future, it is thought that some time away from the company will do him good so that he can return in the new year feeling fresh in the lead up to WrestleMania. 

This hiatus then opens up the SmackDown Championship picture for the coming months since John Cena is also taking some time away from the company following the event on October 9th.

With both the main contenders for the World Title scheduled to take some time away from the company and Dolph Ziggler still yet to resign a new contract, this leaves a few slots open on the SmackDown roster.

Jack Swagger is set for a huge push when he made the move to SmackDown but as well as him and the debuting Curt Hawkins, WWE could decide to add some NXT recruits to the blue brand if they want them to be able to compete with Raw's star power. 

The likes of Shinsuke Nakamura and Samoa Joe have been speculated to be set for WWE call-ups in the near future and either could easily step into a WWE Championship feud with AJ Styles in the absence of both Cena and Ambrose.
