• Jon Moxley Says He Wasn’t Happy He Had To Leave WWE

During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, AEW wrestler Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose in WWE) once again talked about his WWE departure.

Below is what Moxley said:

“Once I decided I was going to leave I wasn’t happy about it for a while. I was pretty pi$$ed about it.

I was like ‘are they really gonna make me leave?’ Are they that — they’re gonna make me leave, aren’t they? They’re gonna f*ck everything up so bad because I wanted that f*cking money.

You know, it’s not that I don’t like money. I like to put it in the bank and look at it, you know? I was like ‘I can’t believe they’re gonna make me walk away from all this money. Can’t you write one good f*cking storyline? One little thing?’

I’ve talked about it ad nauseam, but it just got to the point like the stuff I described in the Jericho interview like ‘oh now you’ll come out in a Hazmat suit’ I was like ‘This can’t be real! Am I on some reality show? Is this the new WWE Network reality show? Is Vince actually saying these words? Does he actually run a billion dollar company?! This is a joke!'”

Moxley also talked about WWE wrestlers asking him if WWE announcing his departure was a storyline:

“That was a great moment for me because it was a release like finally I can relax. I’m back and here we go we’re off to the races. Because I’d been silent for months and months as these rumors came out that I was leaving or whatever and I didn’t say anything and there was a lot of…it was really awkward the last few months there. It was awkward.

People in the locker room didn’t even know. They’d be like, ‘What’s going on? Is it a work? Are you leaving?’ I was like ‘I don’t know’ I didn’t tell anybody literally I didn’t tell anybody anything.

Even when I was first going to leave AEW wasn’t a thing yet, you know.”
