Jon Moxley knew he was going to part ways with WWE even before AEW was a reality. It had no part to play in his decision to leave the company.
Moxley spoke to Chris Van Vliet, where he discussed the possibility of AEW failing and what would happen if it did. Many professional wrestling companies have shut down over the years, but it is worth trying as there is a chance AEW could become a global phenomenon.
Moxley’s point of view is to think of the worst-case scenario – which is just that [AEW] could be a failure, which he does not think is a dealbreaker. Either it will be one of the many companies that tried and failed, or it will enjoy success and “take over the entire world” or at least be a wrestling Renaissance. He said the opportunity was just so good that he jumped in head-first and barely took time to think.
Moxley will continue to believe in AEW’s potential and work hard for the company. We will have to see how AEW fares as time goes on.
