Dean Ambrose confirms wrestling return as Jon Moxley (Video)

Jon-Moxley-Dean Ambrose

Former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose has just confirmed his return to wrestling under his older indie persona known as Jon Moxley.

Ambrose recently changed the name of the Twitter account he was using during his WWE run and reverted it back to Moxley from Dean Ambrose.

He then went on and posted the following metaphor-filled video, suggesting that now that he is out of his prison, he’ll be returning to wrestling and his roots as a hardcore performer:

No word yet on when or where the former WWE Champion will make his return but there is a shot in the video which sees a couple of dice with the numbers 2 and 5 in front.

A lot of fans are believing that this is a subtle hint at him making an appearance at the upcoming Double Or Nothing PPV of AEW which is scheduled to take place on May 25th.

    Good call… I’m tempted to agree with you, based on the implication that the WWe staff has already given its audience; what with the “times are changing, and so we will” statement that was given to us a few months back. This could be a year in advance “script” that HHH had already clarified, “Hardcore Title” coming back into fruition, could become a possibility.

    I imply nothing, nor speculate anything… I’m on a simple evaluation. Facts are here… we know them by now. Based upon my supposition, which is NOT speculative… HE (DEAN) is going through a classic character persona change, and this is WHAT WE MAY GET through the WWe.

    Seriously great vignette, either way. Dean Ambrose contract expired, yes. Enter MOX. The actual person’s name was never called into play to expire, therefore… it may have been a work… this and only this paragraph is speculation. End rant.

    more like coming back to CZW, the barbed wire around the hand implicates hardcore wrestling…which is what he did in that promotion. unless you guys think they are going to be doing beds of barbed wire matches in AEW?

    I know a lot of people have said (myself included) that him leaving was a work, and I know a lot of people believe he wants to go off and join AEW.

    Now this video pops up and it seems to add to the latter with the whole dice showing 2 and 5 and the next AEW event is on the 25th, but what if this is actually still just a work? Just pure speculation on my part and in no way am I saying he has or has not left as only time will tell, but what if it is all in the wording.
    WWE say that Dean Ambrose has decided to not renew his contract, so we all say goodbye to Dean Ambrose, but while Dean has not re-signed with them, Jon Moxley has.

    It might be a stretch, but I could easily see WWE going that route.
    It would certainly play of his mental instability that he has to adopt a whole other persona to break out of his past.

    Of course, it could just be that he has really left and returned to his old ring name. But it does not hurt to speculate considering how good the production values are on this video.

    “kick Vinces asss back into the Stone Age the way WCW did at one point.”
    I am so glad that WCW “absolutely destroyed” WWE and put them out of business … oh wait.

    Not exactly a great comparison there dude.


    This surely is confirmation that he has signed with AEW. WWE raw and smackdown ratings are at an all-time low at the moment and AEW is only going to grow and get stronger with more and more talent leaving to go there to make huge money. AEW will shortly announce a BIG TV deal and that’s when they will absolutely destroy WWE and absolutely kick Vinces asss back into the Stone Age the way WCW did at one point. Once you already know the outcome it’s easy to see the journey !!

    “probably”, and “knew” are a contradiction.

    In other news,,, WWE confirms next Saudi Arabia date for June 7th with Undertaker, Brock Lesnar and Goldberg among others. The “real” WrestleMania, I suppose.

  • Jamie mills

    Video was probably produced by WWE !! I knew the whole this was a work lol.
