When news broke that Dean Ambrose would be starring in an upcoming movie from WWE Studios and Lionsgate, Lockdown, it became obvious he would need to be written off television at some point to explain his absence to complete filming his role.
That's apparently why he was savagely beaten down by Seth Rollins and Kane during his match on Monday Night Raw last night in Las Vegas, Nevada. The final sequence saw Ambrose take a choke slam on the announce table, a Curb Stomp in the same spot, then another Curb Stomp, only this one through some cinder blocks.
That was enough to stretcher him out:
Don't worry, though, WWE not only preserved Ambrose's character, they greatly improved upon it with an injury update at WWE.com that you're absolutely going to love reading:
Despite suffering what was deemed to be extensive head and spine trauma after being Curb Stomped through a pile of cinder blocks by Seth Rollins on Raw, Dean Ambrose has not only refused treatment but is reportedly missing after escaping WWE medical personnel altogether.
"At the time of bringing him backstage, he was responsive and was refusing transport to a local medical facility for further evaluation," said Amann. "He had removed the straps and surgical collar, said he refused to go and we haven't seen him since."
That Dean Ambrose, he's really something.
It's not confirmed this was his TV write off just yet, but it certainly appears as though that's the case. And how fitting that it's not because he's hurt and receiving care until he recovers but that he's hurt and out wondering around, unable to be found so he can be treated. Here's to hoping for some "looking for Dean Ambrose" vignettes that include random WWE employees searching through back alleys across the country.
