• Jon Moxley On If He Regrets Not Leaving WWE In 2015
During a recent interview with Screen Geek, AEW wrestler Jon Moxley (f.k.a Dean Ambrose in WWE) was asked if he regrets not leaving WWE sooner.
Below is what Moxley said:
“That’s an interesting question. I’ve often thought, and wondered, what would have happened if I left in September of 2015, which was when I signed my last contract with WWE?
But at that point I was still kinda like, still trying to do things their way and I just kinda like…It never occurred to me to leave really back then. It felt like I wasn’t, like I hadn’t completely…I never really bought into their bullsh*t kind of thing, but I like was trying to be optimistic. Like, be grateful for the opportunity and try to make the most of it and, you know, save money and so forth.
But, I often wonder what would have happened if I had the foresight to just leave back then. I don’t know.
It could have been worse. It could have been better, but, ultimately, everything’s supposed to work out how it’s supposed to be. The timing of, like, leaving at just the moment that AEW came into existence and just merging at the same time, that feels like a historical thing that I’m very grateful that it happened.
Hopefully, it’s historical. We look back in five years and maybe it didn’t matter at all. But, you know, we’ll find out.”
