Sean Waltman Talks Dean Ambrose & Hideo Itami Leaving WWE

Sean Waltman On How WWE Is Handling Dean Ambrose Departure, Hideo Itami

On the latest episode of his X-Pac 1,2,360 podcast, former WWE Superstar Sean Waltman spoke at length about Dean Ambrose and Hideo Itami parting ways with WWE in the near future. Featured below are some of the highlights of the comments Waltman made about the subject.

On Dean Ambrose parting ways with WWE and how WWE is handling his booking on the way out: “You don’t abuse someone like that on their way out. You don’t shame them, or humiliate them because you want them to come back. It’s like the statement WWE made. A lot of people say ‘Oh this must be a work because they never come out and say this type of thing.’ This is a different time and Dean Ambrose is not a talent that you go ‘we wish you best of luck in your future endeavors’ to because you want him back at some point.

“You use him to do honors for other people on the way out but within reason. Dean Ambrose came back from his time off in shape, looking good. His whole game was on point, every aspect was on point. He’s either going to show up in AEW or he’s just gonna go out and find himself.”

On Hideo Itami parting ways with WWE: “I think around the time that he signed with WWE, no one had more of a buzz in wrestling than KENTA. As far as this guy is pound for pound the best in the world. That’s the kind of talk you heard about. I am just thinking, how he’s so great of a performer, everyone likes him too, you don’t hear anything bad about him, behind the scenes or any other matter. Just what a string of bad luck for him.”
