AEW star Jon Moxley used to work in WWE from 2012 to 2019, where he was known as Dean Ambrose. Ambrose had a tremendous career in WWE where he won several titles, but ultimately left the company after frustrations with his booking.
Jon Moxley made his debut at AEW Double Or Nothing 2019 and since then he’s had a terrific time in AEW, becoming the AEW World Champion and being involved in high-profile matches.
Jon Moxley is also well aware of how WWE functions and he isn’t a fan of a lot of ways they function, especially when it comes to promos. While speaking on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, Jon Moxley heavily criticized WWE promos for having too many unnecessary words and rarely gets their points across.
“As far as what to put in and what not, it’s kinda like a wrestling match or like a promo. That’s why WWE promos f***ing suck because they jam 5,000 f***ing words in there that aren’t necessary. Say what you want to say, mean what you want to say, get your point across. ‘I’m gonna beat your a** on Saturday night because I don’t like you.’ Boom, done.”
“And sometimes in a match, it’s like okay, we planned out all these f***ing spots but really, what is the story? What are we trying to get (across)? You’re the good guy, I’m the bad guy, you’re big, you’re small, you’re tall, you’re short – whatever the contrast of styles or the story we’re telling. Why do we have all (this)? Sometimes, you just look at it and go ‘We don’t need all that extra s**t.’”
Jon Moxley last competed at AEW Double or Nothing back in May and has been on a hiatus since then. We will have to see when Jon Moxley will make his return to the company.
