Jon Moxley used to work in WWE from 2012 to 2019, where he was known as Dean Ambrose. Ambrose had a terrific career in WWE where he won several titles. In the end, he left the company after frustrations with his booking. It seems Bryan Danielson convinced Moxley to not write a book in WWE.
Having worked in WWE for so long, he is well aware of how the company functions. However, that doesn’t mean Jon Moxley is a fan of everything that goes on in the company.
Jon Moxley had also recently stated that his matches in WWE sucked after Vince McMahon scripted all of them. Moxley finally released his autobiography called ‘MOX’ recently and it has been a hit with fans.
While speaking on the Talk Is Jericho podcast, Jon Moxley discussed his autobiography. While doing so, Moxley revealed WWE offered him a lot of money to write a book of his own. However, he was talked out of it after a conversation with Bryan Danielson.
“Actually they wanted me to write a book in WWE. They asked me to do one of their WWE books and I was like, ‘Ahh! I’m not really sure man. I’m not like a former president or anything man. Nobody needs to hear my story. I’m not that interesting.’ Then they offered a lot of cash and I was like, ‘Maybe.’ So they talked to me with this ghost writer guy. I didn’t know how the process worked and I was like, ‘I don’t have time to write a book.’ So the guy talks to me like, ‘Basically, you know, you just write around and I’m gonna follow you. You tell me stories and I’ll put ’em into words.’ And that made me so uncomfortable, and I was like, ‘If I was gonna tell my story, I would tell it my way.
I did feel some pressure and then I remember asking Bryan Danielson, who has written a WWE book which looked good to me. I was like, ‘If you could go back in time…would you do that book?’ And he said no. Instantly like, no. Because he was like, ‘It wasn’t exactly how I wanted it to be.’ That’s all I needed to hear and then I told them no.”
Jon Moxley was 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. So it seems he is unlikely to ever return to WWE and fans simply have to accept that.
