• Kenny Omega Rips Jon Moxley For Getting Injured & Not Taking All Out Seriously
As we all know by now, Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley (f.k.a Dean Ambrose in WWE) will not happen at AEW’s All Out pay-per-view this Saturday night (tap here for details).
During a recent episode of Being The Elite, Omega ripped Moxley for not taking the match seriously and competing in NJPW prior to their big match at All Out.
Below is what Omega said:
“What a sad story, don’t you just feel sorry for Jon Moxley? He just showed up, he defied the wrestling god, came to AEW, threw me off a stack of chips and then he went on a warrior’s journey. He wanted to know what it was like to live a month in the life of Kenny Omega’s shoes.
Insert wrestler name here, greater than sign, Kenny Omega… because people were doing that with you, they were, they were. Cause you were like the hot topic for 15 minutes, this is a redemption for you. In the excitement of being a free man, you called it a ‘Paradigm Shift’ — that was cool, it could go on a shirt.
Then you went to Japan. How did that tournament go in Japan? Did you win? I know that I did, first try. I got the shirt to prove it. You decided to check off all those boxes in that bucket list of yours. Did anyone really talk about you in Japan?
You got a boo boo on your elbow. What’s your explanation? Are you just going to write a sappy tweet apologizing the everyone? Make everyone feel bad for you? Kenny, what happened to the dream match? Kenny, what happened to Jon Moxley? What happened to my dream?! Did I go to Japan and wrestle 24 days in the month before fighting you? No, I did this thing Jon, it’s called being a professional.
What am I supposed to say? I took you seriously, I got myself ready. I got myself in the best shape of my life. You never took me seriously, you never took this pay-per-view seriously. You owe everyone an apology, you owe me an apology, and you should look yourself in the mirror and you should ask yourself, ‘What the f*ck am I doing?’
I’m playing this all back in my mind and I’m thinking, ‘Oh sh*t, this is a really serious injury, it could have happened to anybody, right?’ You were careless, I blame you and if people want to look at me like I’m the bad guy, then their just as bad as you are, Jon.
You left a lot of broken dreams, and a lot of disappointed fans left at my feet begging me to do something. I would love to wish you a speedy recovery, that’s what I’m supposed to say but at this point I couldn’t really give a sh*t if you come back.”
