Booker T Does Not Think Dean Ambrose Is Joining AEW

On the latest episode of his podcast Reality Of Wrestling, Booker T gave his opinion on the Dean Ambrose contract situation and he had some fairly interesting opinions on the former WWE Champion’s next move. (Thanks to @DominicDeAngelo of WrestleZone for the transcription)

“I’m gonna go out there on a limb. I do not think Dean Ambrose is leaving WWE to go somewhere else.

I don’t think a new company like AEW is looking for guys to get that ‘Roger Clemens treatment.’ You know what I’m saying? When you ain’t gotta practice, you just show up and throw fastballs on game day. I don’t think it’s gonna be like that so, and looking into this right here, I think Dean Ambrose, I really think the guy needs some time off. This job can become very very stressful. You can become very depressed doing this job. It can definitely take you on a roller coaster ride.

He’s lucky. You know Dean Ambrose is lucky that he’s married to someone in the business. I know that one of the reasons that I was willing to walk away from this company that I love so much. I was willing to walk away from it because when Sharmell and I got married you know, being on the road it was no fun at all. Then when she came on the road with me as King Booker it relieved a lot of that pressure that I was under. When I first got married I literally went to the office and said ‘I’m done.’ Vince McMahon say ‘why don’t we hire Sharmell?’ The King was born after that, but I tell you, this can be the best job in the world being a WWE Superstar, but it can be the hardest job in the world at the same time.

Dean Ambrose would be stepping away at the best time that he possibly could after WrestleMania, cause that’s a big check.”

So according to Booker, Ambrose will not be turning up in AEW when his contract expires and will instead sit at home and recharge his batteries.
