Jon Moxley debuted at AEW Double Or Nothing 2019 and became one of the mainstays of the company since then. He continues to be an integral part of the company and no one denies that fact. However, Moxley has been criticized often for his constant bleeding during matches. That being said, Booker T believes AEW has room for Moxley’s constant bleeding.
The Purveyor of Violence aptly lives up to his moniker, frequently exhibiting a crimson mask during his matches. However, this particular style may not be well-received by a significant portion of his fanbase and even pro wrestlers for that matter.
In fact, the former AEW World Champion was recently called out for bleeding too much during his matches. Mox’s fervent dedication toward blade jobs continue to be a source of concern for many.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T talked about Jon Moxley constantly bleeding during AEW shows. Booker T stated that he believes AEW has room for Moxley’s constant bleeding.
Booker T expressed his opinion that as a promoter, there is room for wrestlers like Jon Moxley, who is known for his willingness to bleed and take hardcore bumps in his matches. He acknowledged that if he had a personal relationship with Moxley, he might feel differently about the risks involved.
However, as a promoter, if he had the proper medical support and protocols in place, he would allow Moxley to continue his style of wrestling. Booker T also expressed concern for Moxley’s health and well-being in the long term, hoping that he will consider the physical toll that his hardcore style may have on his body as he approaches the end of his career.
“If Jon Moxley’s gonna be the designated guy for that, hey there’s room on the show, there’s room on the show for guys like that,” he said. “That’s what I’m thinking of as a promoter, okay? If I was married to him, I might be thinking something different.
If I’m a promoter like Tony Khan and if I have the ability to have the right medical treatment, the right protocols and whatnot, and I got a guy on the show that wants to do it, dammit, I’m gonna let him do it. And that’s something that hopefully Jon Moxley is thinking about as well because I don’t want to see the guy all cut up and bruised and battered by the time of the end of his career.”
Jon Moxley also might have turned heel on this past week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. Regardless, we will have to wait and see whether Moxley will eventually stop bleeding so much in his matches.
