Jon Moxley is one of the most popular superstars not only in AEW but in the entire wrestling industry. The former AEW World Champion is better known for his time in WWE, than he is for AEW. Moxley worked under the stage name Dean Ambrose in WWE and also achieved the feat of becoming a WWE Champion during his time.
Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose) left WWE in 2019 shortly after WrestleMania 35 when the former WWE champion refused to re-sign with the company. The decision came after Ambrose rejected his Shield brother Seth Rollins and subsequently lost all the momentum he had built up over the years.
In the end, the former AEW world champion lost a lot of matches, which was one of the main reasons why he left the company. His Shield brothers Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns tried to convince the Lunatic Fringe to re-sign with the company but the former Intercontinental Champion was adamant with his decision.
Jon Moxley Has Criticized Vince McMahon And Blamed Him For “The Fading State Of The WWE Show”
Jon Moxley sat down for an interview with SEscoops a few years ago and criticized Vince McMahon for poor programming by WWE. Here’s what he said:
“I want WWE to be great. Honestly, when WWE is hot at this point, I’m not as excited about it as ‘haha, you suck’… Because they’re the number one brand in the sport. They represent the sport to so many people and when their product puts the viewer to shame, it makes all wrestling look bad.”
“We know what their problem is, it’s one person, 3 letters, VKM, that’s the problem. Until he disappears or relinquishes control, that won’t change. When I watch their shows during a pandemic, or I guess even before that, especially during a pandemic, I’m just like ‘oh my god, I’m not there.’ – Forbes
