The Dean Ambrose situation has WWE, and its Universe, whipped up into a frenzy.
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? WWE seems to be caught in a landslide as the Dean Ambrose situation looks like being more of a 'Shoot' rather than part of an elaborate storyline – read why here.
With Ambrose reported turning down and a five-year deal with a seven-figure downside, it seems like the company is in the process of making sure top stars, whose deals are running down, do not follow in the footsteps of the lunatic.
According to a report from PWInsider, talents were offered on a longer-term deal this week's SmackDown. To avoid any doubt in the report, here's what PWInsider has found out: "After the Dean Ambrose news came out late Monday / early Tuesday, there was a buzz of activity backstage at SmackDown as anyone who had a contract that was coming up in the next year or two was pulled into rooms and spoken by management about signing longer form deals.
"All the wrestlers were sitting around looking at each other and going" would you look at this? this is crazy! '"
