AEW isn’t supposed to be easy according to Jon Moxley.
On the December 20th episode of Dynamite, Jon Moxley lost his unbeaten record in the Continental Classic following defeat to Jay White.
Despite the loss, Moxley is determined to march on to victory in the tournament, explaining in his traditionally punchy style that he won’t be making any excuses.
In a backstage promo posted on social media after the show, Moxley said he was ready to show the world something special.
Well, that is how you finish a block. If not with victory, with maximum effort. Am I pissed off? Oh yeah. I wanted that 5-0 real bad. But hey, you can’t lose what you never had in the first place, so why worry about it?
Last week, I told Swerve Strickland if he was ever going to great, at some point he was going to have to learn how to lose — what better time to prove a point than right now when i’m knocked down and have dirt in my eye and blood in my mouth and with one leg. I may be the victim of some unfortunate circumstances, Bryan’s eye is falling out of his head.
Next week I’ve got to face two guys, two of the hottest wrestlers in the world. I’ve got two snipers coming after my head in a triple threat match, and I hate three ways man. Right about now is when most people start making excuses, they start coming to terms with defeat. I don’t get paid to make excuses.
Next week I will show the world something really special. Jay White, Swerve Strickland are going to have a front row seat. I’m going to show everyone in AEW, every wrestler all around the world, anybody from any walk of life that if you’ve got a job to do, the world doesn’t care if you’re sick, if you’re tired, or if you’re hurt.
These AEW fans, they come to shows and they buy tickets and they pay for parking and they bring their kids and they take a night off work that they can’t afford, they don’t want your excuses man. They deserve 100% of your effort. Next week, i’m gonna show the world how to suck it up and get the job done. Next week, I’m gonna get this job done and win this block.”
Jon Moxley Sends Warning To AEW Stars
Moxley continued by sending a warning to some members of the roster who he believes expect everything to be handed to them.
“Nothing pisses me off more than these punk ass dudes coming into AEW thinking it’s supposed to be easy with their poor me attitude when things don’t go their way. Man, this is pro wrestling, this is the greatest sport in the world and this is All Elite Wrestling. This ain’t supposed to be easy.”
During a recent interview, Jon Moxley hit back at claims wrestlers need titles to “get over.” The three-time AEW World Champion said the opposite was actually true, and it’s wrestlers who get titles over.
