Jon Moxley Comments On Being Reliable For AEW

Jon Moxley has spoken about having a lot of pride in terms of being somebody that AEW can rely on a regular basis.

Ever since he signed with AEW in May 2019, Jon Moxley has been one of the MVPs of the company. Moxley is the only three-time AEW World Champion who has been a consistently good performer and has wrestled most of the biggest names in the company.

While AEW has dealt with its share of drama over the last couple of years including CM Punk being fired after another fight at the biggest AEW show ever, Jon Moxley has continuously stepped up.

A recent example of that is that the original main event of AEW All Out on September 3rd was going to be Punk facing Ricky Starks in a Strap Match. Instead, Punk’s firing was announced a day before the show while Bryan Danielson faced Starks in a Strap Match. Due to Punk being fired, Jon Moxley challenging Orange Cassidy for the AEW International Title became the main event of All Out. It was a match won by Moxley, who became AEW’s International Champion, while Cassidy can make the claim of being an AEW pay-per-view main eventer.

Jon Moxley is proud of being a reliable leader for AEW

In an interview with Rick Ucchino of “The Bleav in Pro Wrestling Podcast,” Jon Moxley spoke about his role in AEW.

“We take a lot of pride in our work, and our work ethic, and our standard that we set. You know, the way we do the job, to be one of those guys that’s like reliable, kind of always there. The downside is it’s very, very easy to take you for granted.”

Moxley would continue by praising his All Out opponent Orange Cassidy for putting on a great performance.

“Orange Cassidy pulled off an amazing performance. He lost, but he pulled off an amazing performance in his first ever pay-per-view main event. That was not planned in the weeks out. In fact, everything would have looked completely different, but that’s kind of how it’s gonna go.”

“If you’re gonna have any success in wrestling, it’s very rarely going to go according to plan. You got to be ready to take [the] opportunity when it’s there.”

This past Wednesday on AEW Dynamite, Jon Moxley defeated Big Bill to retain the International Championship. Up next for Moxley on AEW Dynamite Grand Slam this Wednesday is a much different kind of opponent when he faces the high-flier Rey Fenix.
