• AEW Wrestler Refused To Lose To John Cena
In his book MOX, Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose in WWE) talked about how The Shield’s first loss was scheduled to be against John Cena, Ryback and Sheamus at Elimination Chamber 2013.
Moxley wasn’t happy about this finish and The Shield talked to Vince McMahon and got it changed.
Here’s what Moxley wrote:
“If we went out there with Cena and took the f**kin’ schmootz and got pinned like everybody else, we would then become everybody else. It would kill us. I remember…being in the car with an uneasy feeling in my stomach. ‘I ain’t f**king doing it,’ I said. ‘Whether they fire us or we get Cena’d and killed off…we’re dead either way.’”
Moxley also noted that The Shield often turned down WWE writers’ ideas of them losing:
“We would go on a long undefeated streak in six-man tags. The writers kept trying to beat us. We refused time after time, standing our ground together. It got downright awkward sometimes, but we had strength in solidarity. We knew the equity in what we had built and were not willing to give it away.”
