Jon Moxley: In WWE it’s almost like Vince is in the ring with you

Jon Moxley won his first championship in WWE while in the group, the United States Championship, with his 351-day reign being the longest under the WWE banner. Following The Shield's breakup, Ambrose went on to become a one-time WWE Champion, a three-time Intercontinental Champion, and a two-time Raw Tag Team Champion (with Rollins).

He was also the 2016 Money in the Bank ladder match winner, cashing in his contract on Rollins later that night to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Upon winning the Raw Tag Team Championship in August 2017, Ambrose became the 27th Triple Crown Champion and the 16th Grand Slam Champion.

In a long interview with ESPN, Moxley discussed the difference between wrestling for NJPW and wrestling for WWE: “[In WWE,] it’s almost like Vince is in the ring with you, the producer is in the ring with you.

It’s like you have two little bubbles on your shoulder, like three heads in the ring. All of a sudden when I got in the ring [in New Japan], five minutes into the match I was like, there’s no chatter. There was no producer-ref-Vince chatter.

It was like silence. And I didn’t expect that. I was like, ‘Whoa, I’m alone again. It’s just me in the ring.’ And then I just started beating the [crap] out of Juice and I was like, ‘Oh yeah, this is what I used to do.' ”
