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. A former AEW World Champion himself, fast forward to 2022, Moxley returned to AEW programming on the January 19th, 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite after it was revealed he has entered a rehab program for alcohol addiction.
During a recent conversation with CBS Sports, former WWE commentator Renee Paquette, who just happens to be the wife of Jon Moxley, discussed her post WWE success. Credit to the outlet for the below.
“One thing that I’ve learned over the course of this year and a half is patience,” Paquette told CBS Sports. “I think when I first left WWE, it was sort of that feeling of like, ‘What am I going to do? What’s going to make the most sense?’ and kind of figuring like, ‘You know, maybe I’ll go work for another network, maybe I’ll go do another studio show somewhere.’ But when I left in like peak COVID time, that was not the case. I mean, all productions had halted. Nobody was hiring new people, which was really that kind of a blessing in disguise where it’s like, ‘Well, I’m going to start doing something myself anyways.’ And I’ve always really wanted to be in control of what my own narrative was. I’ve always wanted to really, I guess, create my own content and be able to put that out there.”
