Jon Moxley arrived in AEW and has been having the time of his life. He is the number one contender and has an AEW Title match against Chris Jericho at AEW Revolution on February 29th. Mox also realizes that All Elite Wrestling is a great place for younger talent.
Bleacher Report recently spoke to Jon Moxley. He discussed the freedom that AEW gives their wrestlers and how people like Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, Sammy Guevara and more don’t have to “walk on eggshells” when they’re getting a grasp of wrestling on national television.
“Guys like Jungle Boy, and Marko Stunt, and Darby, and Sammy Guevara, and Joey Janela, to see these guys, who are so young, and so talented, getting a shot on a national stage and just being able to be completely be themselves, unencumbered by anything, they don’t have to walk around on eggshells, they don’t have to try to tow any company line, they don’t have to tone anything down, they just get to truly be themselves, that’s really fun for me to watch.”
The organic and authentic nature of AEW programming is finding an audience. They have also defeated WWE NXT in the ratings every week so far in 2020. We’ll have to see what’s next for AEW, but they seem to be offering their stars and fans a unique experience.
