Jon Moxley used to be known as Dean Ambrose in WWE, where he found a lot of success both as a tag team and singles star.
Moxley parted ways with WWE back in 2019 and made his way to AEW, where he is a huge star. Moxley also competed in NJPW on a few occasions and is the current IWGP US Heavyweight Champion.
While taking part in a Bleacher Report AMA session, Jon Moxley talked about working in WWE, NJPW and AEW. According to Moxley, getting to work in all three major promotions has been a rewarding experience for him in different ways.
Moxley then said that WWE is a company where one dreams to go as a child, while AEW is a vastly different experience altogether.
Moxley compared his time working in AEW to “getting to be a part of something that is on its maiden voyage”.
“They’ve all been different and rewarding in different ways. WWE is where you dream to go as a kid, but in AEW it’s a totally different thing, getting to be a part of something that is on its maiden voyage. It’d be cool to look back and say ‘I was there at the beginning.’ The top nucleus here has already made it, and we’re working together to make something new. Before Dynamite started, this was all just an idea. Now it’s arguably the hottest promotion in the world right now. It’s not too long ago that this was just a theory, almost too good to be true. But now it all actually happened and we’re making it succeed,”
Moxley is likely to return to NJPW this year in order to defend his IWGP US Heavyweight Championship against KENTA.
