Dean Ambrose is set to depart the WWE sometime in April following the expiration of his contract.

Several sources, including Mike Johnson from PW Insider, say that he was offered a long-term multi-million dollar deal but all advances have been rejected by the former WWE Champion.

It seems as though Ambrose wants some time away from the business and there's every chance he could return in the future after a leave of absence, and if he does the reaction will be incredible.

Speaking to talkSPORT a few weeks ago, Ambrose's former tag team partner Roman Reigns said he was not surprised that the 'Lunatic Fringe' was deciding to depart the company.

“He’s kind of always been preparing to get to a point where he doesn’t have to rely on anybody," said Reigns.

"We’ve been fortunate enough to have a crazy rollercoaster ride and such a great job over the past few years and we’ve been fortunate enough to secure ourselves.

“So, I’m not surprised because I know if he wants a break or needs a break he’s going to take it and do it his way."

Ambrose's last television appearance came two weeks ago in a Falls Count Anywhere bout against Drew McIntyre on Raw - which ended up in a loss where he was Claymore Kicked off the stage with his upper half trapped between a guard rail.

Brutal indeed, but he still turned up last week after Raw went off the air to save Seth Rollins from the wrath of Baron Corbin, but there were no plans for him on the show, and it turns out we may have seen the last of him.

According to Cageside Seats' Rumor Roundup, Ambrose is not expected to appear on television going forward, and as for a WrestleMania 35 match, that seems unlikely at this point too.

It may be a form of punishment from Vince McMahon because of Ambrose's refusal to sign a contract, or it may just be the fact that with so many matches to build towards there's just no room for him on the show.

It'll be sad to see Ambrose go out in this manner, but when he inevitably returns in a year or two, the reaction may well be even bigger than his 2018 return which was roof-raising itself.
