Jon Moxley Reveals How WWE Officials Reacted To His Departure
Posted By: Ben Jordan Kerin on Oct 17, 2019
AEW star Jon Moxley was recently interviewed by Screen Geek in which he revealed WWE's reaction to him not re-signing with the company.
Here is what he said:
"It was my last night and they had us do this sit down Michael Cole interview. A Shield special. And I was like, ‘What? That’s weird…” Cause the whole time they’re sending me out to, like, to do goodbyes and stuff…And they didn’t know how to handle it.
Bury me, push me, bring the Shield back together, and they killed me off like 4 different times. I went through a table, then they put my head through the stairs, they didn’t know how to handle it. Because I didn’t say anything. And because Vince couldn’t buy me, they didn’t understand.
They couldn’t how…cause they had no control. He just couldn’t wrap his head around that I was leaving. So, I felt like they were gonna try and get the jump on it.
I was real defensive because I thought they were gonna try and ‘get the scoop’. I just felt like it was a set up. But, no, [it wasn’t a reference to AEW], it was ‘cash my chips in’.
I walked into FCW, drove from Philly to Tampa with literally the cash I had in my pocket and my bag. That’s all I had in the whole world. Hence, ‘walk into a casino’ and try my luck at this WWE thing and see if it works out.
However many years later, I did pretty f***ing good, but now it’s time to, ‘alright, I’m done playing, now it’s time to cash out and walk out’. That’s what I meant by that."
