If you still had that little bit of hope that Dean Ambrose's departure from WWE was just a swerve for something else, you may want to reconsider your opinion.
Ambrose had his last match for WWE last weekend alongside his Shield brothers Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, and Baron Corbin.
The Shield won the match with The Hounds of Justice hitting their iconic triple powerbomb and The Lunatic Fringe hitting his Dirty Deeds finisher one final time inside a WWE ring.
Ambrose gave an emotional final speech after the match, putting over the Universal Champion in the process for his WrestleMania success as well as The Big Dog for beating leukaemia before he exited the ring.
While some WWE fans had hoped this wasn't the final time we would see The Moral Compass inside a WWE ring, it appears it will be for the time being.

WWE has moved Ambrose's profile on their website to their Alumni section, confirming his departure from the company after eight years.
While he's leaving WWE, The Lunatic Fringe might be taking a hiatus from wrestling for a while too.
He said in an interview before last Sunday's match: "Eight years ago, I walked into this casino. Now I'm cashing in my chips and I'm walking away from the table. I won the game.
"What I do with the rest of my life from here on out is my business. I answer to no one. This time the 'Million Dollar Man' didn't get what he wanted. Because I can't be bought."
During his time with the WWE, Ambrose was a WWE Champion, a United States Champion, a three-time Intercontinental Champion, a two-time Raw Tag Team Champion, and the 2016 Money in the Bank winner.
The Moral Compass' title wins throughout his career meant he became the 27th Triple Crown Champion and the 16th Grand Slam Champion.
Fans will be hopeful that Ambrose returns to the WWE one day, but it might be a while before that happens. As the old WWE saying goes though, never say never.News Now - Sport News
