When WWE superstars leave the company, there is often a huge 90-day no-compete clause, but from the sound of it, Dean Ambrose will not have that no-compete clause when his contract expires in April.
The difference is that Ambrose is letting his contract with WWE completely expire. If he had left early or the WWE had released him, the 90-day no-compete would have taken effect.
However, there is one additional caveat to this WWE news.
However, Ringside News reports that
The timing is huge.
Since the Dean Ambrose WWE contract expires in April — and he is not required to sit out for 90 days — he could show up just in time for the AEW Double or Nothing PPV event on May 25 in Las Vegas.
There have been recent rumors that Dean Ambrose was angry that some in WWE were reportedly claiming he was trying to get more money by taking into account AEW started up. Ambrose has remained frugal with his money and said that he didn’t need to make more money if he got better storylines to work.
Dean Ambrose also said on the Major Wrestling Figure Podcast that there are too many wrestlers in the WWE who are “just here for the money.”
