Jon Moxley Says His Career Was 'In A Toilet Bowl' Before He Left WWE

Jon Moxley is still taking shots at WWE following his departure from the company earlier this year.

The superstar, now with All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling, seems to be enjoying himself thoroughly as of late. But he also seems to be very bitter over the final years of his stint with WWE.

Moxley's biggest gripe with the company stemmed from not having enough creative freedom with his storylines and he's previously claimed to have felt useless ahead of his move.

The 33-year-old is undefeated since leaving WWE and is currently participating in the G1 Climax tournament. Following a recent victory over Tomohiro Ishii, he addressed his opponent and the fans.

“Thank you, Tomohiro Ishii, for sharing the ring with me tonight, you sick bastard,” he said (via Sescoops.com). “Let me tell you guys something: a few months ago, my career was pretty much in a toilet bowl, and then you guys welcome me over here to Japan, made me feel like part of the family, gave me this canvas on which to paint ugly, gruesome works of art. So I thank you for that.

“Let me tell you this: nobody on this planet, nobody on this Earth, in this world, in this universe can tell me what I’m capable of, or what I can and can’t do, what I can or can’t accomplish, only I can say that! Let me tell you this, and you better damn sure believe it, because I’m gonna do it or I’m gonna die trying, get used to it. Jon Moxley is going to win the G1!”

Mox is now set to face Los Ingobernables de Japon's Shingo Takagi as part of the tournament but we expect the sparks to really fly when he takes on Kenny Omega at AEW's All Out PPV at the end of August.

The star must have been really frustrated with WWE to keep throwing barbs at every opportunity. We may never know the full extent of his disappointment with the company but they're said to be expecting him to return as early as next year. We just don't see him jumping back into a "toilet bowl," though.
