The All Elite Wrestling superstar has had little positives to throw the promotion's way since his departure earlier this year and, just recently, he referred to their scheduling as "stupid." Apparently, he's not quite done calling WWE-related things stupid either.
Speaking to Still Real To Us during New York Comic Con recently, Mox lashed out at his former employers' scripts, saying he had to "do these stupid scripts" for years and lie to the fans.
“I had to do that for years, when I had to do these stupid scripts,” he said. “I’d have to say stuff like, ‘I’m going to eviscerate your skull at Hell In A Cell!’ It’s like, ‘No, I’m not. I know I’m not. I know that there’s not going to be any blood. I’m lying. I’m lying to the fans. I’m selling this violence that’s just not going to happen.'”
AEW probably doesn't have half as many writers as WWE does and Moxley says it's because of the faith AEW has in its talent. In fact, he says they don't even need writers or producers.
“We don’t need writers or producers, or anything like that,” the 33-year-old declared. “We know what we are doing. You’ve got myself, Jericho, Kenny, Cody, The Bucks, PAC, and Spears. We’re all at the top. If we wanted to be in WWE right now, we could, and make huge money. Any one of us. We’re all actively choosing to do this, instead.”
Moxley claims he has been given free rein at AEW and hasn't been turned down once since he left WWE.
“I think since I’ve left WWE - I don’t think I’ve been told ‘no’ once,” he added. “Usually, they say, ‘Do whatever you want to do.’ For instance, with Joey Janela at Fyter Fest. At first, I was like, ‘Okay, cool. We’ll do some nutty stuff.’ I thought we would be somewhere in the middle of the card. Then I realized, we were going to be in the main event.”
Mox Has No Love For Scripts
Old school wrestling fans will recall the greats of yesteryear simply rattling off without so much as a word of advice from a producer.
WWE has since become about scripts and strict orders. Mox seems to be in particular opposition and he's doubling down on that. He wore a top with the words "Unscripted Violence" to Dynamite on Wednesday night and it's been an entrance song for him as well.
Away with the scripts!
