Dean Ambrose Refused To Speak Scripted Lines About Roman’s Cancer Battle
According to Dean Ambrose (now Jon Moxley), Vince McMahon scripted some of the lines for him when it came to the Roman cancer fight angle. Ambrose stated that the lines were so bad, it would have costed the WWE sponsors and that he refused to speak them.
Ambrose also spoke out about the fact that the company used Roman’s cancer battle for publicity and that he was appalled by the entire situation. He called the entire situation “distasteful”.
Vince Cried When He Left
When we think about Vince McMahon, the last thing we think about is emotion. However, Moxley revealed that Vince McMahon cried when he told him of his plans to leave the company. He also stated Vince was surprised when he told him he was unhappy within the company. Not a good reaction from the boss it would seem, as Dean apparently stated his discontent for years.
He Did Not Even Read The Contract Extension
When his departure was rumored, the WWE tried to convince Dean to stay by offering him a much better contract. However, Dean revealed that he did not even look at the initial contract extension from the WWE. So, no matter which contract he would be offered by the company after that, it would seem that he had his mind set on leaving from that point.
Dean Ambrose Or Pooper Scooper?

The Innoculations Promo Was The Final Straw
Jon Moxley has been unhappy within the WWE for some time, but according to him the final straw was the innoculations promo he had to do for Raw in November 2018. During the promo, he would receive a shot in the bum from a fake doctor.
