Jon Moxley Rejected Huge WWE Offer

Jon Moxley parted ways with WWE back in 2019 and went on to sign with AEW, where he has had a great run so far. Last month, Tony Khan and Moxley’s wife Renee Paquette revealed that Jon Moxley is writing a book.



Details regarding the nature of the book or when it will be published were not revealed. Jon Moxley recently spoke on Fight Game Media, where he talked about writing a book currently and how he once turned down an offer by WWE to do the same.

“Maybe in the middle? I don’t know,” said Moxley when asked how far along he is in the book. “I’ve never written a book. I don’t even know how I got sucked into this because I never had the desire to write a book. I’m not a former President. I don’t need a memoir. I don’t have a pressing desire or need like ‘I have to tell my side of the story.’ I don’t actually know how to write. WWE wanted me to write a book. I was like, ‘I don’t have a desire to do that.’ They gave me an offer and everything and they had me talking to this writer and he was like, ‘We’ll talk and hang out on the road and I’ll put it into words.’ I got real uncomfortable with the thought of somebody else writing…if you write a book, it’s your words and it wasn’t going to be my words. So, I was uncomfortable with it. It was money. I asked another guy who wrote a WWE book what the process was like because they crank those out. I was like, ‘If you could do it again, would you do it?’ He was like, ‘No, because it wasn’t the book I wanted it to be.’ That was all I needed to hear. I told [WWE] I wasn’t interested and turned it down. I’m not into the idea of a ghostwriter. I sent in some samples and they loved it and were into it. I sent a couple more and then I was committed. It is hard. I’m using Chris Jericho’s editor, the guy who did his books. We’re working on it. No news or information. It’ll probably be terrible or the best book ever.”

Moxley is currently scheduled to face Kenny Omega for the AEW World Championship at AEW Revolution in an Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch.
