Everyone’s talking about Dean Ambrose right now because WWE issued a statement earlier this week saying that the former World Champion will not be signing a new contract, and he’ll be finishing up with the company in April. John Cena is someone who has wrestled Dean Ambrose on more than a few occasions, and Cena took to Twitter to post one of his patented cryptic pictures with no caption. This time around he shared a photo of a man named John Moxley, which seems to be a reference to the fact that Dean Ambrose used to be known as Jon Moxley on the independent scene.
It was also recently reported that Hideo Itami has requested his WWE release, and the company is expected to grant his request. Itami is reportedly heading back to Japan, and is once again using the KENTA name on his social media profiles.
Former WWE United States Champion Rusev took to Twitter to thank both Dean and Kenta following news of their WWE departures.
Thank you Kenta and thank you Dean.

Dean Ambrose was used on Raw this week, and is currently under contract until April. With WWE issuing a statement confirming that he’s leaving the company, it will be interesting to see how he’s used over the next few months.
