Seth Rollins says he and Dean Ambrose were ‘upset’ with Ambrose’s heel turn that has led to WWE departure
Although we are just days away from WrestleMania 35, we are also witnessing the dying embers of Dean Ambrose’s WWE career.
The Lunatic Fringe will depart the company following its showpiece event and the former WWE champion will be sorely missed.
He has decided against renewing his WWE contract and the general consensus has been that he was not happy with the creative behind his character in WWE.
Anyone who witnessed his heel turn late last year won’t be surprised to hear that at all.
The whole angle seemed to flop hard with a lackluster pay-per-view match between himself and Seth Rollins the true kiss of death.
Speaking to Yahoo Sports, Rollins detailed how the whole angle upset the pair of them and it’s not what they wanted.
“The way that affected Ambrose, that wasn’t really his best look. No one wanted to see us fight each other, we had been through that, it didn’t feel good. I was upset, he was clearly upset and people didn’t want to see it, they wanted to see us be brothers and care about each other.”
“At the end of the day, I was happy to have that one last match with my Shield brothers by my side. It was one of the most emotional experiences I’ve ever had in a wrestling ring and it felt so good. Whenever we’re back on the same side, it’s so easy, it’s so much fun. Knowing that was the last one, I think we all felt it, were able to soak it in and enjoy that match. That propelled me and gave me all of the momentum I needed heading into WrestleMania.”
We had the final Shield match at WWE Fastlane as they gained a victory over Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre.
Now, Rollins will challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal title and Reigns will face McIntyre in a singles contest. Ambrose is not booked for the show at present.
