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. It seems he is glad he never had to feud with Mick Foley in WWE.
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. It was also said that he changed as person after leaving WWE.
It is well known by now that prior to debuting as part of the Shield, WWE wanted Jon Moxley to debut on the main roster as part of a feud with Mick Foley. In the end, that never happened.
While speaking with Wrestling Observer Radio, Jon Moxley talked about his scraped feud with Mick Foley. Moxley stated that he was glad the feud never happened. This is because he simply wouldn’t have been given the freedom that he wanted.
“In retrospect it’s actually better that me and Foley just remains a total dream match feud. If 90s Mick Foley and current or maybe a decade ago version of me if you do [a feud] with Mick Foley. For sure that would be the s**t. That’s some dream match s**t.
But at that exact time what would have actually happened was I would have come to the building and I would have had it all in my head exactly what I wanted to say. And I would have the promo in my head and the angle in my head and I would have had it all ready. It would have been very cemented in my head then they would have handed me a script.”
Jon Moxley is certainly having the time of his life in AEW and it is certain he is glad to leave WWE as Moxley was able to expand his horizons and compete the way he wanted to. He is currently in the AEW World Title Elimination tournament and we wonder if he will be able to win the whole thing or not.
