Jon Moxley believes the hiring of Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff can be a good thing for WWE if Vince McMahon allows it to be.
We knew the wrestling industry would be shaken up in 2019, but we certainly weren't expecting this. Whether WWE wants to admit it or not, two shows in, AEW has already left an indelible mark on the business. Not only have the promotion's first two shows been terrific, but some of WWE's most recent moves are clearly reactions to that.
Most notably, the hiring of Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman as executive directors. It was plain to see on last week's Raw that Heyman has already started to work his magic. SmackDown, on the other hand, maybe not so much quite yet. In defense of Bischoff, he did reveal on his podcast that he would be moving to Connecticut later this month. Perhaps he is not back with WWE full time just yet.
You'd have to think that both men would have loved to have worked with Jon Moxley had he not left Dean Ambrose behind earlier this year. Heyman, in particular, could have worked wonders with the former WWE Champion. You'd also think Moxley would have loved the chance to have worked under Heyman. He certainly thinks that the hiring of the pair can be a good thing for WWE.
"I just hope Vince lets them do their ideas," Mox told The Store Horsemen. The AEW star is still suspicious that the hiring of Heyman and Bischoff is just for show, though. He hopes "It's not just 'I made him head of creative, but I'm telling him what to do type of thing,'." There is a very real chance that's the case. Or, that McMahon will not be able to handle giving up any control and things will eventually revert back to normal.
As for AEW going head-to-head with WWE, Moxley believes that would be a terrible idea. Mox thinks "it would be a fool's errand to try and take them down, it wouldn't be good for the wrestling business." Plus, let's not forget his wife Renee Young still works for WWE. If he were to help put Young's employers out of business, we can't imagine that would make for a happy home life.
