Jon Moxley compares Tony Khan to Vince McMahon

In his WWE career, Jon Moxley 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 complete the Grande Slam (new format); he was also the winner of the 2016 edition of Money in the Bank, which he successfully cashed against Seth Rollins.

He departed WWE in April 2019, reverting back to his Jon Moxley moniker and debuting for AEW at their premiere event Double or Nothing. He also started working in NJPW shortly after and won the IWGP United States Championship in his debut match, becoming the first and only wrestler to have held the WWE and IWGP United States championships.

He then went on to capture the AEW World Championship in February 2020. Moxley has also competed in several other regional promotions including Heartland Wrestling Association (HWA), Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) and Dragon Gate USA (DGUSA).

During a recent interview with PWInsider, he discussed how working with Tony Khan in AEW compares to working with Vince McMahon in WWE: “He’s really good dude, man. I think he’s a friend to a most everybody in the roster.

Real easy and approachable, and not in a bad way. A lot of people probably at first wanted to be like, oh, he wants to hang out with the wrestlers. He’s just going to be one of those too friendly with the boys type guys.

But he’s not that at all. I mean, right now he’s worked in analytics for the NFL draft and doing all this other business stuff. I mean, he’s a really smart guy. He grew up in that family where they have this empire.

So he’s got a lot of business sense. He’s business savvy, but also just an incredibly passionate wrestling fan. He’s so easy to get excited, if I go up like, ‘Dude, I got this idea. What if we did this?’ And he’d be like, ‘Dude, that’s awesome.

What if we did this then? And then we can do that.’ And he’ll get all excited like a little kid. And I’ll be like, ‘Hold on, tone it down. Tone it down.’ Which is cool. You want that. Whereas sometimes, I come in and talk to Vince and I’m all excited.

I’m like, ‘Dude, okay, here we go. We’re going to do this, this, this. Then this. Then we do this on Raw. And then on pay-per-view this. What do you think?’ And it’s like talking to a door. Dude, hello, I’m giving you awesome. They’re like, nope. We’re just going to do the same old crap we always do."
