WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose is just about ready to conclude his long run with the company. Ambrose is set to leave WWE at the end of the month, and his final match with The Shield will air tomorrow night on the WWE Network. There have been rumors stating that All Elite Wrestling may be interested in bringing the former WWE Champion on board once his WWE contract expires. According to a new report in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Ambrose’s wrestling plans post-WWE are unknown. It was mentioned that AEW wants Ambrose, but very little communication between the two sides has taken place. Of course, that could all change soon, but what is certain is that Ambrose will be gone from WWE in just a few more days.
As All Elite Wrestling continues to announce new roster members and participants for their Double or Nothing show with each passing week, it’s interesting to see who will be joining the new promotion. Former Impact Wrestling performer Austin Aries now has some fans convinced that he may be on his way into AEW soon. Aries posted cryptic tweet online this week stating that he signed a deal with a company and will be appearing in Las Vegas soon. This just happens to be the location for Double or Nothing, but it may also refer to the Starrcast event taking place during the weekend of Double or Nothing, According to 411Mania, it may also be related to a stand up comedy event taking place in Las Vegas on April 20th.

It was reported last week that WWE officials were working on adding some provisions in The Undertaker’s WWE contract that would prohibit him from accepting bookings that are unaffiliated with WWE. The changes are being made as a result of “The Deadman” accepting an appearance at Starrcast next month, as well as some other non-WWE bookings that the wrestling legend has taken over the past few weeks. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Undertaker first started taking non-WWE bookings after Super Show-Down in October, because he believed that his career with the company was over. Vince McMahon was apparently shocked that The Undertaker agreed to be at Starrcast, and he was shocked that they were able to give him the money that he asked for. Undertaker was recently given a new contract worth more money, which he has signed. He is still set to appear at Starrcast this May though.
