• Jon Moxley Reveals What Vince McMahon Told Him In WWE All The Time
Jon Moxley wrestled in WWE for many years as Dean Ambrose and he regularly got told to “tone it down” by Vince McMahon.
In his book, Moxley recalled facing Ted DiBiase Jr. in a dark match in December 2011 (about a year before his WWE main roster debut) and thinking it went great, until he heard Vince’s opinion.
Here’s what he wrote:
“The response from the crowd to all of it was great. I had been hitting on all cylinders that evening. The note I got from Vince: ‘Tone it down.’
The next night I went out and had basically the same match in Richmond, except this time I felt strangely self-conscious. It was not as good. I didn’t really do anything different, but I felt like I was wrestling in f**king bowling shoes with ‘tone it down’ ever present in my mind.”
Ambrose heard the same during his days in The Shield:
“In the early days of The Shield, as soon as we started wrestling matches, that’s all I heard all the time. Tone it down. Strangely, this would always come right after some really awesome sh*t just happened or we tore the house down.”
