In his 2021 book, current AEW wrestler Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose in WWE) revealed a lot of stories which have never been heard before.
One of these never-heard-before stories is the following:
“I ran into Vince [McMahon] on his way to the gym and we spoke for like an hour at 2 am in the hotel lobby.
Renee and I had just had $ex, and I was shirtless, going to the ice machine. It was the best conversation we ever had.”
Also in this book, Moxley said that Vince McMahon has lost his magic. Here’s what he wrote about the Owner of WWE:
“Dude, remember that one promo where Vince brought back the nWo, and he’s all, like, ‘I’m gonna kill it! I’m gonna kill MY CREATION!’ See what I’m saying? It makes perfect sense. What other explanation is there for this horsesh*t we’re putting on TV? I wondered.
I finally decided he’d just lost the plot and was so insulated in his own world, so disconnected from reality, he would never recover creatively. He’s lost his magic, I decided, that Walt Disney magic that only Vince has, and when he dies, it’ll be gone forever.”
Moxley later wrote that Triple H (Vince’s son-in-law) and Shane McMahon (Vince’s son) don’t have what it takes to replace Vince:
“[Triple H] was smart enough to hire half the indies and take Instagram selfies with them, but he ain’t got the magic. Shane would probably stick an M80 up his a$$ and light it if he thought that’s what fans wanted to see, but he ain’t got it either.
Fortunately, though, when Vince is gone, that magic will live on in the hearts and minds of the fans forever.”
Moxley left the WWE in 2019 and then joined Tony Khan’s brand new AEW promotion a few months later, where he became the 2nd AEW World Champion in history.
