Jon Moxley left WWE for a number of reasons. He let everything out during a couple of shoot interviews, but now Seth Rollins seems to be letting go a little bit as well.
Sports Illustrated Media Podcast recently spoke to Seth Rollins where his former Shield brother came up in the conversation. Although he does have love for Moxley, when everything is said and done he still considers that Moxley took his ball and went home.
“Ambrose can do what he wants. He’s a big boy, he’s got his big boy pants on. He can go out there and say whatever he wants, but the bottom line is not everybody’s equipped to handle the rigors of WWE and the schedule and how it affects you mentally and emotionally. And Ambrose gave everything he had to the company for the entire time he was here. He put his heart and soul into the travel, into the schedule, into the injuries, into the work in the ring and all that stuff. But at the end of the day, he took his ball and he went home, or he went elsewhere at least. And I think it’s a little presumptuous of him to get on a podcast and talk down about the company that gave him such an opportunity.”
“And like I said, I love the guy. I love him, I’ll always love him, but at the end of the day, we just share different perspectives about what we want out of life and about where we’re at in our own lives. I hope that he does well. I’ve kept enough tabs on him to know that he’s doing super well for himself right now and I’m happy for that, but I just don’t think there’s any reason to hop on a soapbox and complain after the fact. You need to take the first step, and that’s looking in the mirror and asking yourself did you do every single thing you possibly could to make yourself and your situation what you want it to be, and if the answer is yes you did, then you can go elsewhere and complain. If that’s where he’s at mentally then go right ahead, but if he hasn’t done that, he hasn’t looked in the mirror and made that decision, then maybe he should think about that. That goes for any other disgruntled talent past or present.”
Seth Rollins has taken up the task recently of defending WWE online in a big way. This has sparked a couple of online beefs, most notably against Will Ospreay. Although Moxley hasn’t responded to Rollins yet, you have to wonder if he is aware of these online altercations.
The Architect did say that he has a feeling that he will be clanging fists with Jon Moxley again someday. He didn’t specify what company it would be for, but judging from this interview it certainly seems like he is hoping they will meet again in a WWE ring.
