Jon Moxley reveals why he left WWE during astonishing tell-all interview on Talk is Jericho

    There is no trust when it comes down to it, even Roman had to get voice lessons and other small talent related skills before they made him the “big dog”. So, the WWe needs to invest more in talent relations before they give creative control to their actual talent roster. I’m sure they know this, but aren’t about to waste their time, unless a wrestler is at least 5 years tenured in the ring, including mic. skills and charisma.

    For a while, i honestly thought they were gonna turn his character into Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. He had the jacket, the facemask, and the evil genius storyline. Instead of having that “a-ha! Gotcha!” moment at the end of every Raw they had him running away from Rollins. Instead of presenting a dangerous character, they gave us…whatever that was. And the storyline fell flat.

    And this is why the “flux” situation is happening, and not just or simply because AEW is offering Health Insurance. High hopes seem to be in the air for a future brand that tells its employee’s that not only are they not Independent Contractors, but the company actually cares about them. Open mindedness is the key to decent morale integrity and for the longevity of any company.

    And this is why WWE is going down the toilet. They need to start giving more creative control to their wrestlers. They can still veto things and get final approval, but some of the best angles in WWE in recent years have been the ones where a degree of creative control was given to the wrestlers.

    Doubtful… because “JON” wanted his own personal storyline, the WWe would never have allowed that to happen. They always have creative custody over any character. Jon wanted to be JON and so he chose. The WWe didn’t want that character without exclusive rights to it. Much like the “Broken” Hardy gimmick. Same issue with the same company.

    I really do not think it surprises anyone that his heel turn was the thing that made him want to quit.
    It was one of the most poorly executed and poorly received heel turns in a long time.
    With Becky Lynch the heel turn was well handled in many respects, but they just chose the wrong person as the fans did not want to see her turn heel. With Ambrose the heel turn was welcomed, but the execution and character were terrible. The whole leukemia thing was not to everyones taste, but that kinda worked, everything else did not. The character we saw in NXT and at Double or nothing was what fans wanted, not a guy getting rabies shots and wearing a gas mask.

    Had WWE given us this Austin/Pillman-esque character, he might still be with WWE now.
