Jon Moxley’s AEW contract has interesting detail

Jon Moxley

Jon Moxley parted ways with WWE after fulfilling all his obligations with the company. Now he is having the best time of his career and competing in both AEW and NJPW. However, he can return to WWE if he so desires.

Recent reports have mentioned that though Moxley’s AEW contract is for three years, there is an interesting detail included, where he can leave in one year if he decides he wants out.

It is noted that Moxley told Triple H and Vince McMahon that he intended to take a year off from WWE in order to heal his mind and body. So naturally, it was assumed by the company that he would return in 2020.

It was also reported that WWE had already started up some “tentative creative” for his return at the Royal Rumble.

In fact, the source adds that WWE was so sure that Moxley would be back in WWE that they had already planned for some “tentative creative” for his comeback at the Royal Rumble next year.

In the end, Moxley signed with AEW and this is something no one saw coming until he made his appearance at AEW Double Or Nothing and shocked the world.

    Why? It can benefit them just as much as it benefits Moxley.
    The leaving within a year would have some kind of caveat involved for certain, and I would guess it also gives AEW the chance to break the contract with him if it does not work out for whatever reason.
    Let’s face it, if they want to be different to WWE with regards to contracts and the whole “independant contractor” thing, they should not be releasing anyone while still under contract. So if they have a situation with Moxley where he becomes hard to work with for whatever reason, it would give them a perfect get out clause themselves.

    he is a moron thats why

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Well said buddy.

  • Mick Thomas

    Calling as it is.

    Agreed. With the “rumor mill” being the majority ruling party theses days, society needs to be reminded that the phrase, “at face value” is important. Nothing is ever reaffirmed without the proper source(s) to reiterate said information.

  • Soulshroude

    That so called name calling of ” what a mark” seems to be played out by the hyper sensitive these days.

    CC has been posting logical answers time and time again. What do you have against the post, Mick?

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I wouldn’t have made such a deal if I was AEW.

  • Mick Thomas

    What a mark.

    They either have to say who the source is or actually state it’s an anonymous source. It’s a rule of journalism. Otherwise you can make up anything and put it in a quotation section.

    I will say this, like anything this story has to be taken with a pinch of salt (including the taking a year off crap).
    That said it is common sense to have a get out clause for a new promotion like this, and if he has indeed had that included in the contract, then he is a very wise man.
    It has been common in Formula One for years for topline drivers to have performance clauses in their contracts that allow them to leave after a specified amount of time if the team fails to deliver, or the team to kick them out if the fault is with the driver.

    So WWE would actually sign someone who took their ball and went home?

  • StoneColdBeckyLynch

    Almost all wrestling news never reveals the source. Get over it. It’s nothing new

  • Vincent Dale

    Reported by who? This doesn’t hold weight without a source.
