• This Week’s RAW Featured A Promo That Jon Moxley Refused To Do
On this week’s episode of RAW, Elias cut a promo ripping the LA crowd and this was a promo that Jon Moxley (f.k.a Dean Ambrose) refused to do last year in WWE.
Sounds like Elias is cutting the promo Vince wanted Dean Ambrose/Jon Moxley to cut on the LA crowd last year. Pretty sure Moxley said that exact same “the people are more toxic than the air” line in the Talk is Jericho episode.

Dave Meltzer also discussed this promo on the Wrestling Observer Radio:
“[Moxley] explained this whole thing that Vince wanted and he didn’t wanna do it and so Elias did it and it’s just like after a lot of people heard that podcast for them to go in there and have Elias do it. Is it like that’s almost kinda weird to me.
But it’s like ‘we liked it and we haven’t been in Los Angeles and now we’re in Los Angeles so goddamnit, we’re gonna have someone do this interview so we’ll have Elias do it and he did it.”
