Jon Moxley explains his little “cameo” on WWE Backstage

Jon Moxley is best known for his past 2012-2019 in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), where he performed under the ring-name of Dean Ambrose. In the Stamford Federation, he once held the WWE Championship, three times the Intercontinental Championship, once the United States Championship and twice the Raw Tag Team Championship (with Seth Rollins), proving to be the sixteenth wrestler in history to have completed the Grand Slam (new format).

Following his departure from WWE in 2019, Good reverted back to his Jon Moxley moniker and made an unannounced appearance at AEW's premiere event, Double or Nothing. He also started working in NJPW shortly after his WWE exit and won the IWGP United States Championship in his debut, becoming the first and only wrestler to have held the WWE and IWGP United States championships.

Outside of wrestling, Good made his acting debut as the star of the 2015 action film 12 Rounds 3: Lockdown and will appear in the upcoming action film Cagefighter: Worlds Collide. In a new interview with Wrestling Inc, the former WWE superstar explained his little “cameo” on WWE Backstage: “The dog was barking and I didn’t know what she was doing.

It was nothing. There’s much bigger news going on in the world”. On how he got involved in Cagefighter, he added: “I wouldn’t really consider myself an actor per se. Pro wrestling will always be my No.

1 priority but you never know what the future holds. If they called me for an Avengers movie right now, I’d be like, ‘Hell yeah! Sign me up!’. It was just a day or two after my WWE contract expired and I was able to pursue whatever I wanted.

I got a call from Jay Reso who wrestling fans know as Christian who’s working as an executive producer on this movie. He said they’re looking for somebody with name value in pro wrestling and somebody unattached to WWE.

I happened to become available right at that time. He threw my name out there and [the producers] said that was perfect”.
