Jon Moxley is a full time WWE full-time wrestler. He is currently one of AEW’s biggest signings. Jon was known as Dean Ambrose in the WWE and he was part of The Shield. Jon left the WWE, even though the WWE offered him a multi-year deal in which he would have made more than seven figures every year.
He stated in many interviews that he left the WWE because he was sick of their scripted promos. On the Wade Keller Pro Wrestling Podcast, Jon spoke about the promos that he cuts at AEW. "It's all kind of touch hand go," Moxley told Keller.
"The past few months I've just been thinking to myself, I don't know what I'm going to be as a wrestler. I don't know what I'm going to be as a character. I don't know how fans are going to react to me.
I guess I'll just figure it out as I go along. But that's usually when it's the better stuff. For instance, the difference between AEW and WWE, after Double or Nothing in the span of ten minutes I was able to record three different promo type things that were all good stuff”.
All Elite Wrestling has stated that they will allow their wrestlers to cut the promos they wish to cut. There won’t be much of the WWE scripted promos in the AEW that we have become so used to.
