AEW star Jon Moxley made a name for himself in WWE, where he was known as Dean Ambrose. Together with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, the three debuted on the main roster back in 2012 and were known as The Shield.
The Shield would go on to become one of the most dominant and popular stables in the history of the WWE and truly elevated the statuses of all three Superstars involved. The Shield would break up for the first time back in 2014, in a move that certainly no one saw coming.
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 in MOX, Jon Moxley revealed that the Shield was supposed to lose for the first time against John Cena, Ryback and Sheamus at Elimination Chamber 2013. The Shield voiced their concerns to Vince McMahon and had the ending changed. Moxley made it clear he refused to lose to John Cena as well.
“If [we] went out there with Cena and took the f***in’ schmootz and got pinned like everybody else, we would then become everybody else,” wrote Moxley. “It would kill us. I remember…being in the car with an uneasy feeling in my stomach. ‘I ain’t f***ing doing it,’ I said. ‘Whether they fire us or we get Cena’d and killed off…we’re dead either way.'”
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.
