• Jon Moxley Explains Why Vince McMahon Pays Brock Lesnar A Lot Of Money To “Ruin WWE”
During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho podcast, AEW wrestler Jon Moxley (f.k.a Dean Ambrose In WWE) talked about WWE issuing a strange press release about him not signing a new deal.
Below is what Moxley said:
“So now they put out this weird press release. It was so bizarre. People are like what is this press release and I’m like, ‘That’s AWESOME!’ It’s never been done before. All that ever happens is the ‘we wish you the best in your future endeavors.’
It’s unprecedented. It was like a glowing review and so I was like ‘Okay cool I’m not saying anything.’ What I think happened was like they were getting backlash or whatever. I don’t know the motivation behind that press release, but that’s why a lot of people thought it was a work.
Because they want to control the narrative. That’s the thing Vince hated about this whole situation that’s why it was so bizarre and so many ups and downs cause he has no control.
I told him I don’t care how many zeros you want to put on a piece of paper I am gone and he’s got the Million Dollar Man complex. He’s gotta be able to buy everyone. That’s why he pays Brock [Lesnar] billions of dollars to come in and ruin his company because he wants to own Brock. He wants to be like ‘Ah Brock’s my attraction!’ ya know?”
