Jon Moxley left WWE in 2019 to join the newly founded wrestling promotion — AEW. There, he has found a lot of success. However, soon after leaving WWE, he opened up on his grievances surrounding the company on a podcast. Seth Rollins did not take too kindly to Jon Moxley’s attitude after leaving WWE and made it clear.
“He put his heart and soul into the travel, into the schedule, into the injuries, into the work in the ring and all that stuff. But at the end of the day, he took his ball and he went home, or he went elsewhere at least. And I think it’s a little presumptuous of him to get on a podcast and talk down about the company that gave him such an opportunity.”
Seth Rollins on his relationship with Jon Moxley
Now, in an interview almost a year later, Rollins talked about how his relationship with his former Shield-mate has come along. Seth Rollins mentioned that he still talks to Jon Moxley. He revealed that when Renee Young was sick, he contacted Moxley again.
“We still talk from time to time. I would love to see what he’s doing or how he’s doing or whatever. When his wife [Renee Young] got sick, obviously I checked in on him to make sure he was doing OK and the dogs were good and all that good stuff.”
Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns were best friends during their time in Shield. Now, all three men have gone their own way, but Rollins is still in touch with Jon Moxley. Rollins also opened up on his relationship with Roman Reigns.
He’s got five kids now. He’s a busy dude. It’s not that he’s sitting at home taking his time off. He’s working in a different way. As expected-father-to-be later this year, I can’t imagine having five little crazies running around at once, so kudos to him and his wife for what they’re doing. But he’s doing good and he’s healthy. You see him on social media. He’s working out, he looks like he’s in the best shape he’s ever been.”
Currently, Seth Rollins is facing Dominik Mysterio at WWE SummerSlam, while Jon Moxley will face MJF at AEW All Out.
