Dean Ambrose reportedly goes off script during promo on Raw last night

In between the Becky Lynch ‘will she, won’t she apologize’ drama on Raw last night, there was an odd segment involving former Shield’ brethren Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins taking a big step to an early reconciliation.

After a verbal jousting between Seth Rollins and Paul Heyman, Ambrose came down early for his match with EC3 whilst Rollins was still in the ring. Rather than fighting, Ambrose took the mic and simply said “I’ve only got one thing got say to you: Slay the beast.”

Dave Meltzer reported that Ambrose had been scripted to deliver a more thorough promo. It would have reportedly touched on their time in the Shield, Roman Reigns and then the eventual “slay the beast” finishing line. Ambrose took the decision himself to cut the fluff as he was ‘not feeling it’ and simply delivered the headline message.

It’s no secret Ambrose is reportedly leaving WWE following WrestleMania 35 so there may be more scenarios where Ambrose takes things into his own hands, or maybe we’re all being worked?

    Which falls into my idea that Meltzer is talking crap saying Ambrose went off script.

    I mean, how many times is the Shield gonna break up/turn on each other, and then reconcile? It gets pretty damn silly after awhile.

    Yes, I’m suggesting it was so last minute, and that maybe Rollins wasn’t aware of it.

    But that would just add to the fact that this was not Dean going off script as the only way the music would hit was if it was in Vinces plan. Ambrose has no control over that .. or maybe Meltzer is gonna tell us that Ambrose broke into the production truck and made them play his music early.

  • Killswitch

    Either Rollins that great of an actor or Ambrose wasn’t supposed to come out that early at all, because Seth looked legitimately confused as to why Dean’s music hit. Up to the moment where Dean motioned for the mic, he looked like he had no clue as to what was going on.

    It looks like to me he might be taking off from Pro Wrestling all together. I actually don’t think he going to sign anywhere else he probably burn out.

    To be honest, that one line was more than enough.
    We did not need some soppy history lesson as we know it all already.

    The simplicity of that line works so much better for Ambrose character.

    But then again, just because Meltzer says he was supposed to do something does not mean he is right.
    Hell, we all know Vince re-writes shows on the fly anyway, so maybe it was Vince’s last minute decision.
