Jon Moxley Talks About His Post-WWE Career So Far

In an interview with, Jon Moxley commented on his post-WWE career so far:

“I think since I’ve left WWE–I don’t think I’ve been told ‘no’ once. Usually, they say, ‘Do whatever you want to do.’ For instance, with Joey Janela at Fyter Fest. At first, I was like, ‘Okay, cool. We’ll do some nutty stuff.’ I thought we would be somewhere in the middle of the card. Then I realized, we were going to be in the main event.”

“Once I started learning more about Joey Janela, and what he means to the death match scene; I realized that this was a dream match. Now we’re in the main event. I realized the expectations are so high,” Moxley revealed. “I told [management], ‘You realize, just by putting my name with Joey’s together, you’ve created an expectation for insanity. Anything less than balls-out would be a disappointment, and I’m not going to be in the business of disappointing fans anymore.’ I had to do that for years, when I had to do these stupid scripts. I’d have to say stuff like, ‘I’m going to eviscerate your skull at Hell In A Cell!’ It’s like, no…I’m not. I know I’m not. I know that there’s not going to be any blood. I’m lying. I’m lying to the fans. I’m selling this violence that’s just not going to happen.”

“I haven’t had to shoot down any bad ideas from anybody, which is great,” said Moxley. “‘Cause, you know. I used to go to TV, and it’s like starting in a hole. I’d think, ‘How bad is it? Oh God, maybe if we could make this crap passable, it would be a victory.’ Everything so far is great. It’s almost too good to be true. But, it’s so simple. We’ve got, no pun intended, some of the most elite wrestlers in the world. All guys who are veterans, in their primes with huge fanbases. They understand their fanbases. We know what’s good, and what’s not. We don’t need writers or producers, or anything like that. We know what we are doing. You’ve got myself, Jericho, Kenny, Cody, The Bucks, PAC, and Spears. We’re all at the top. If we wanted to be in WWE right now–we could, and make huge money. Any one of us. We’re all actively choosing to do this, instead.”
