Report: “Shock” names exploring options outside of WWE, backstage reaction to Moxley podcast

Jon Moxley’s very honest account of his time in WWE on the recent Talk is Jericho podcast appears to have resonated with a lot of the current roster.

In the 90-minute interview, Moxley got a lot off his chest and at times appeared to be talking as if it was a therapy session rather than a podcast interview.

Moxley in the end sounded liberated from his WWE nightmare and appeared to have recaptured his enthusiasm for pro wrestling. It’s therefore no surprise that his former co-workers agreed with his points:

In relation to unhappiness within the WWE locker room, Dave Meltzer also commented on the sheer number of people that are feeling this way:

“There’s way more that you are not aware of. I would go so far as to say that there are very few people and you can count them on one to two hands, that have not at least inquired regarding what’s outside; including names that would shock you.”

Any initial thoughts on the shock names that have looked outside of WWE?

  • Luke

    Lol yes of course, wishing actual death on a person is a reasonable response to not enjoying a television show.

  • Luke

    Lol the suggestion that dirt sheets care about that kind of thing is just funny, and no it wouldn’t jeopardize the jobs of those talents, because guess what? They will all go to AEW, and Vince doesn’t want that.

    Such a silly comment.

    The headline was written that way to make you come here. That is all.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I think the only reason why Kofi is WWE champion is because the fans wanted it. But it may have also given Vince Mac new life which we all do wish he would retire but it won’t be for a while.

    The reason why Brock Lesnar wins the WWE title is because of Smackdown big move to Fox. But don’t be shock to see Kofi pulls off an upset an beat Brock Lesnar too.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Really what big shock show up at AEW. I mean you really think it was a big surprise that Dean Amborse or Moxley show up not really.

  • CC

    So why have people constantly been throwing out names like Mike & Maria, The Good Brothers, Sasha Banks and The Revival for ages now? Nobody has ever shown any kind of “responsibility” before, so why are they starting now?

  • Yespage

    I suppose the irony is that Kofi Kingston is champion right now. If Kofi Kingston can be champion in WWE, that has to give some smaller sized talent hope. Granted, that hope gets crushed by Brock Lesnar taking a dump on the MITB match that a bunch of really hard working wrestlers put on, but… you know… I guess WWE is a mess. But at least Kingston is champ.

  • Will Henderson

    i bet the shocked name is a guy name Joe or a guy name Colby.

  • jedi

    Then dont put the name will surprise you then not give the name.

  • rob

    for a second i thought wwe hired bill gates for creative when i saw that picture

  • Dirt McGirt

    People need to start bringing “Die, Vince, die” signs to events. He doesn’t have heel heat, he has go away because you are destroying the business and nothing short of your real life demise will stop you.

  • It would be irresponsible to publish them because it would jeopardize the jobs of those talents.

  • Wolfie

    This is a terrible article. It says there are shocking names, but never says who they are. What utter crap.
