Former WWE Superstar and current AEW star Jon Moxley is without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most popular pro wrestlers in the world right now. He is also a former AEW World Champion and IWGP United States Champion. Mark Henry had leaked a Vince McMahon AEW phone call.
Jon Moxley was a mainstay of WWE television since signing with the company over a decade ago and from 2012 to 2019, he had a tremendous career in the company, winning multiple championships along the way. He parted ways with WWE back in 2019 and went on to sign with AEW, where he has had a great run so far.
Jon Moxley has been lighting the professional wrestling and sports entertainment landscape on fire since joining the company during their inaugural pay-per-view event, Double or Nothing on May 25, 2019, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Similar to his days as a member of the Shield and as Dean Ambrose, Moxley entered through the crowd – both attacking Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega.
Speaking with his wife Renee Paquette on her podcast, The Sessions, Jon Moxley discussed his time in rehab.
“A lot of people in my position would have stayed in rehab a lot longer, I was done three months later, the one therapist I had straight up told me to retire. ‘Start a wrestling school, train some kids, you know what the problem is, you gotta get out of there.’ ‘I don’t think it’s that.’ I went in on Halloween night and was back on TV in January. It makes me a little self-conscious, everyone staring at me. Also, I kind of don’t give a f***.
“When you first go into rehab, they take your phone. After however long of good behavior, they’ll eventually give it back to you. One day, they called me and said, ‘You can have your phone back.’ I was feeling really good about everything, so happy not having a phone. I made a weird face and she’s like, ‘You don’t have to take it, we can keep it here and locked up.’ ‘You just keep it,’ and I went back the rest of the time.”
