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 recently spoke on the “Throwing Down” podcast, where he talked about believing in The Undertakers gimmick as a child.
“It’s like this mysterious world. A guy like The Undertaker, I remember me and my friends would be like, ‘Do you really think he sleeps in a coffin? What does he do in real life,’ because it wasn’t exposed like it is today. So it was like this mysterious world.”
He also talked about how he got into pro wrestling in the first place.
“I saw a flyer on a telephone pole for a local, little indie show. I was like, ‘Oh man, I’m going to that.’ It was a flea market, called the Red Barn Flea Market in Cincinnati. I went to it, and in the event hand-stapled together program, where they have coupons for pizza and stuff like that, they list the sponsors and the card tonight.
“There was an ad in the back for Les Thatcher’s Main Event Pro Wrestling Camp. That was the lightbulb moment. It’s like anything else. You want to be a doctor, you go to medical school. You want to be a wrestler, you go to wrestling school.”
