• Jon Moxley On WWE Wrestlers Complaining About The Shield Beating Them Up Real Bad

During his recent appearance at Starrcast IV, AEW wrestler Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose in WWE) talked about WWE wrestlers complaining about The Shield beating them up real bad during their early days in 2012-2013.

Below is what Moxley said:

“It was a much different locker room back then. Guys didn’t get opportunities as much and if you were in FCW your chances of getting out and getting a spot were slim and if you did being successful at it and not getting buried or swallowed up really quickly was slim. You had your top guys like your Cenas and Ortons and them, but for new guys to come into the mix was pretty rare.

We really had an all for one and one for all mentality. I was like ‘I don’t give a f*ck I’ll f*cking fight anybody on live TV if they f*ck with my guy or try not to sell to us, I was like ‘this is our only shot’.

So we were like f*cking busting people’s… I’m swearing too much, I apologize… it’s just how I talk. I can’t not swear… but we were like bloodying people’s noses and blackening [eyes] — people were getting upset about it.

There were people who were complaining about it — I won’t mention any names — but they didn’t like it. We were also told to keep doing it because it created a good atmosphere, but then once we started having these matches then people started to want to work with us. They were like ‘Oh sh*t.’

But for the first few weeks people were giving us dirty eyes and dirty looks like ‘These new f*cking Shield guys’… f*ck them’.”
