• Former WWE Wrestler Says Dean Ambrose Will Make AEW Debut At Double Or Nothing
During a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, former WWE wrestler and Bellator MMA fighter Jack Swagger said that Dean Ambrose (Jon Moxley) will make his All Elite Wrestling debut at Double Or Nothing PPV on May 25th.
Below is what Swagger said:
“I don’t want to step in Jon Moxley’s shadow. I think that’s going to be a great debut for him, hopefully I’m still keeping my fingers crossed that’s were we see him at.
I think anything is possible. It’s awesome, awesome to be a part of this. It’s definitely why I left WWE in 2017 because I knew that pro wrestling was going to have such big opportunities and new platforms for young businessmen who are serious and who are trying to provide for their families to come out and excel and excel the way you want to and work with the people you want to and build your brand the way you want to which is the most important thing.”
