Despite what he accomplished in WWE, Jon Moxley has claimed that his AEW debut felt better than anything he did with his former employers.
It has now been more than a week since AEW Double Or Nothing and we have just about calmed down. Plus, NXT showed us that WWE can also put on a good show via NXT TakeOver XXV. Nevertheless, the biggest story in wrestling is still the debut of Jon Moxley. Most notably, what Mox has had to say about WWE since he made his debut at Double Or Nothing.
Moxley first appeared on Talk Is Jericho and told all about his relationship with Vince McMahon. Well, we thought he had told all. Since then, Mox has sat down with other interviewers and revealed even more. From wanting to quit for years to some of the things the boss would ask him to say and do on TV. Life was not great for Dean Ambrose in WWE.
Whenever a former WWE Superstar complains about their lot in life, many are quick to point out the good times. For example, Moxley was WWE Champion at one point. However, during an appearance on Flip the Strip on 840 KXNT, Moxley made a surprising admission. "This totally trumps winning the WWE title. To stand on my own two feet with no WWE involvement," Moxley said.
As Moxley has said multiple times this last week, aside from his wife, wrestling is his one and only love. For almost anyone who becomes a wrestler, their ultimate goal is to become WWE Champion. Moxley admitted that was the same for him. "Growing up all I wanted to do was win the WWE title and I did that across the street at the T-Mobile Arena." However, the rest of his time at WWE tainted that reign for him.
During his interviews this week, Moxley has given fans an extremely telling look into the current inner workings of WWE. The creative process is quite clearly broken, although fans have assumed that was the case for months, if not years. All we can hope is that the emergence of AEW forces WWE to make changes, and the arrival of genuine competition means Mr. McMahon will up his game.
