Jon Moxley had a lot to say in a recent podcast and he discussed WWE’s attempt to bury him in a feud with Nia Jax. Vince McMahon was trying to convince him that it was a “special attraction,” but it was so obvious what WWE’s intentions were.
Dave Meltzer cleared up WWE’s intentions for putting Dean Ambrose in a short-lived program with Nia Jax. WWE was trying to bury him as Moxley assumed during his Talk Is Jericho interview.
The interesting part as Meltzer expanded on the subject during Wrestling Observer Radio is that WWE decided against burying Ambrose because they didn’t want to make him a martyr which is exactly what ended up happening anyway.
“I would have known it if I hadn’t been told it, but I’ve also been told it. Nia Jax was there to bury him, okay? The reason they pulled the plug on that was basically there was a feeling that if they buried him with Nia Jax it would reverse and he’d become a martyr and I think that’s the reason why they didn’t bury him too much because they didn’t want him to become a martyr and it would make him super hot when he came out, but in fact that ended up happening anyway.
Jon Moxley gained a lot of attention during his final run with WWE because fans wanted to see what would happen next. They were interested in seeing whether he would be used or written off of television completely. Interestingly enough, Ambrose was thinking the same thing.
