WWE announce Dean Ambrose will leave the company in April


WWE have officially announced that Dean Ambrose will be leaving the company in April.

Rumours spread like wildfire earlier today claiming that 'The Lunatic Fringe' would be on his way out of the company after growing frustrated with his position and booking in recent months.

And now, hours later, it has been officially confirmed by WWE after they posted on their social media platforms confirming the news of his departure.

WWE tweeted the following statement: "BREAKING: Dean Ambrose (Jonathan Good) will not be renewing his contract with WWE when it expires in April."

Since the tweet, WWE have also released an article on their website, which reads: "We are grateful and appreciative of all that Dean has given to WWE and our fans. We wish him well and hope that one day Dean will return to WWE."

The 33-year-old has been a crucial figure on the WWE roster in recent years, making his main roster debut as one third of the famous Shield, standing alongside his 'brothers' Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.

The trio would cause havoc upon their arrival, dismantling top superstars that got in the way, becoming one of the most memorable and successful stables in the company's history.

However, after Rollins' infamous heel turn, the three of them went their separate ways.

Despite all having successful individual runs, with all of them winning titles on their own, things were never quite the same for Ambrose when he was away from Rollins and Reigns - he seemed to fall behind the other two, often competing on the mid-card rather than the main event.

Having said that, he can still leave the company knowing he's won it all, excluding the Universal Championship, and can call himself a Grand Slam champion.

Who knows what is next for Dean Ambrose, but no doubt wherever it is, chaos will be close behind.
