Picking up after Survivor Series on the first Raw it is teased that Ambrose will be disciplined by Stephanie & Seth eagerly awaits the announcement. The entire show the announcement is built up, but it turns out to be a ruse with Stephanie just distracting Seth to allow Ambrose to jump him from behind and beat him down ending the show standing over him once again. The next week Stephanie talks about waiting for the right moment to get her revenge on Seth from Wrestlemania when he fought Triple H and this was the right moment. Ambrose clears up the fact that he isn't joining Stephanie or anything they just had a common enemy they wanted to take down.
The following week it is announced that Rollins & Ambrose will collide in a TLC Match with the winner gaining the number 27 entrant in the Royal Rumble. The reason for this is because we know that they play up how successful those that enter at number 27 over the years more than number 30 which is why we put that stipulation on the match. This match would be used to protect both guys this way neither have to take the fall in the match. Ambrose will get the win in the match and secure the number 27 spot at the Royal Rumble leaving Seth to still enter at number 10. The only difference this time would be Seth eliminates Ambrose getting a measure of revenge on his rival.
Following the Rumble we get a mixture of promos between Seth, Dean, and Heyman with Brock. This leads to Seth saying "At Wrestlemania I will slay the "Beast" but for then I need to contain a lunatic" and challenges Ambrose to a match at Elimination Chamber specifically Last Man Standing. The week before Elimination Chamber Ambrose and Rollins meet in the ring with security around them and they talk about their long history together in WWE and out of WWE and what there match on Sunday means. See I know this part will never happen, but knowing that Rollins and Dean traveled together & do have a history I'd give them the segment and them add the emotion into the match, because that's something someone who didn't live it doesn't understand.
Ambrose & Rollins would have free range to speak their minds and leave everything they can come up with in the ring verbally. Also I would have no pull apart, because every feud does and this one is too personal for it to seem like every other feud. Fact is letting these guys just work I feel like it would give them the room to be themselves. I don't know what caused their flop at TLC, but knowing WWE it is possible that micromanagement played a part. This match would be the first time that Ambrose leaving is even brought up raising the doubt during the match and adding to the story. Rollins gets the win in the match setting himself up against Brock at Mania. Following the match Dean Ambrose will grab the microphone and his eyes will well up like he's going to cry, but then he puts down the mic and walks away.
For weeks leading into Mania we will be introduced to "Mute Ambrose" as Dean it seems like he wants to explain his departure. This will lead to a sit down with Rene Young two weeks before Wrestlemania and this is what breaks Dean who during the interview just gets up and Rene looks at him gets up to and they hug each other. Confused what to think the feed cuts out and we have to wait till next week to find out what is going on. Standing in the ring Dean Ambrose says goodbye to the WWE Universe and again I would let Ambrose say whatever he wants as far as thanking the fans, but he wouldn't be able to run down the company obviously. I just think that after seven years he should be able to thank the fans on television.
