• Jon Moxley Opens Up About Dealing With Vince McMahon’s Terrible Ideas
During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho podcast, AEW wrestler Jon Moxley (f.k.a Dean Ambrose In WWE) opened up about dealing with Vince McMahon’s terrible ideas during his WWE run.
Below is what Moxley said:
“These are things that an idiot would do like things along the lines of driving backward on the street on a unicycle or sharing a pizza with a homeless man on the street just weird stuff like that. So I’m like, ‘I’m not saying that,’ just rewrite it change it to something. Vince redid it and put all that stuff back in. Now I’m like god now I have to talk to Vince.
If you can’t get it through without it getting in there now Vince has re-written it himself and now it’s out of the writer’s hands. I gotta go in and talk to Vince. I’m like I can’t say all this stuff, it’s ridiculous and he’s like ‘Oh it’s such good sh*t! This stuff! This is the reason why people like you it’s why they connect with you it’s because you’re different and this is you!’
I’ve had a million conversations with [Vince McMahon] that were almost the exact same kind of conversation about similar promos or that kind of thing. ‘This is such good sh*t this is what makes you you!’ And I said, ‘So I’m an idiot?’ So he says – ‘No it’s you — you’re different!’ I’m like ‘okay’.”
