AEW World Champion Jon Moxley recently earned some heavy praise from Hall of Famer Kurt Angle for being a special talent.
Jon Moxley has cemented himself as the top guy in AEW in the last few years after making his debut in the company in 2019. When Moxley’s WWE contract was up, he knew he wanted to leave and he knew that AEW would be the right place for him where he can be a better version of himself.
In early October, Moxley showed his commitment to AEW by signing a contract extension that will keep him in the company for at least five more years.
The WWE & TNA Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently spoke on his Kurt Angle Show podcast about what makes Moxley great.
“I think he’s doing great. I think he is one of the most underrated wrestlers, definitely. I think he’s solid. I think he does everything incredibly well. I don’t see much of a transformation from Dean Ambrose to Jon Moxley. It seems like he’s still him. He has that attitude. He never took that away from himself, that’s what makes him special. That arrogant, cocky look is what makes him who he is.”
Whether Moxley is underrated could be argued because he is certainly one of the top wrestlers in the world by his colleagues and fans watching at home.
Moxley’s next biggest test as the AEW World Champion is a title defense against challenger Maxwell Jacob Friedman at Full Gear in two weeks on November 19th.
