• AEW World Champion Jon Moxley Reacts To WWE Wrestlers Getting Released
As of this writing, 32 WWE employees have been released (tap here to check out the list).
During an interview on Wrestling Observer Live, current AEW World Champion Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose in WWE) had the following to say about this situation:
“My heart goes out to all these people who are affected by this craziness whether it be financial or worse. I heart a bunch of news through the grapevine people in our business got unfortunate phone calls this morning so it’s a weird time.
I’m feeling very fortunate you know. I was not or I will not for a second feel sorry for myself like poor me during this craziness because I got it pretty good all things considered and I’m just stuck in the house with my wife who is my favorite person to hang out with anyway.
We’re just hanging out. Getting it on all over the house all day. Watching movies and she’s got some cooking projects she’s experimenting with. So I’m basically hanging out and having a beautiful woman feed me meals every day.
No matter how the World Title match turns out tonight [on AEW Dynamite], I feel like a World Champion and I am very blessed at this time.”
