• Jon Moxley Explains Why He Thinks AEW Is Better Than WWE
During a recent interview with TV Insider, AEW wrestler Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose in WWE) talked about the difference between WWE & AEW.
Below is what Moxley said:
“It’s what it’s supposed to be. That’s pro wrestling. That’s the kind of wrestling I enjoyed as a kid. That’s the thing.
The difference for us is we don’t have to have 37 pay-per-views a year and 600 network specials every year. We have Dynamite every week but 4 or 5 pay-per-views a year.
We can keep those high-quality, big matches for those. A big fight feel. I think some of that has been missing over the last few years when you have to rush through stories and car crash stuff and give away so much on TV.
The gratifying part for me is that it’s so much easier. You don’t have to over complicate things. The story is simple. You have professionals who know what they are doing, veteran guys. Sometimes you can take risks and try something out. Maybe it works or doesn’t. It’s always great to be willing to do that.
The lack of 30 writers buzzing around with all this weird f’in energy is the biggest difference. Instead of a 10-minute sports entertainment segment, at AEW I don’t have anyone bugging me with 40-page script to memorize or drilled to me how it’s supposed to be done.
It’s very stress-free when you just let guys do their jobs. It’s easier when you have more in command of the rudder of the ship. Better than having the wind blowing in 50 f’in directions.”
