Dean Ambrose retained WWE Championship against Seth Rollins

 

The reason as to why Heath Slater wasn’t drafted remains a mystery to many, although this could be because of the injury he suffered at a live event in Bangor, Maine three days ago… or worse… could this be a foreshadow that WWE is letting go of Slater?

 

I don’t know but as soon as I get updates, I shall update you. 🙂
