• Eric Bischoff Explains The Problem With Jon Moxley’s AEW Character
During a recent edition of his 83 Weeks podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff talked about the problem with Jon Moxley’s character in AEW.
Below is what Bischoff said:
“To me, he’s two-dimensional. And he needs to find that third dimension, you know, to get him to a Chris Jericho-type level.
It’s nothing wrong with his work, nothing at all wrong with his character other than I’m not seeing a lot of depth to it.
There’s a sameness to it. There’s not enough range to it. I’d like to see that. And I think that that’s true across the board for a lot of characters, not just Jon Moxley. You know, to be able to shift gears.
You know, you go back and look at Chris Jericho’s career and he’s been able to successfully reinvent himself so many different times in so many different ways, because he has that range and that third dimension that a lot of people have really never developed and a lot of top guys don’t have it. You know, guys that you consider top guys don’t have it.
But I think if any talent, not just Jon Moxley, but any talent wants to reach that next level, they’ve got to be able to have that range that allows them to position elements of their character that make them feel more interesting.”
