Ambrose left Vince McMahon’s promotion last April following seven stunning years with the wrestling giants and moved to the newly-formed rival company All Elite Wrestling where he now performs as his old hardcore gimmick of Jon Moxley.
Moxley has taken the world of wrestling by storm with his recent criticism of WWE as he opened up about how unhappy he was with the booking he was getting by the promotion’s Chairman and CEO McMahon.
The ex-WWE Champion revealed many things he didn’t like, such as the direction of his character, the lines he was given and his WrestleMania 32 match with Brock Lesnar.
Another thing he wasn’t too fond of were the backstage promos as he claims they took up a lot of time and energy even when it was just for one short segment.
Within 10 minutes, I accomplished more than what I had in six months of WWE
The Lunatic Fringe, though, prefers the simpler way AEW do their promos and even claimed that he accomplished more within 10 minutes on his first night with the company than he did in six months with WWE.
Moxley told The Wade Keller Pro Wrestling Podcast: “It’s all kind of touch and go.
“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 10 minutes I was able to record three different promo type things that were all good stuff. It was so easy.
“I texted Cody [Rhodes] earlier in the day when I was hiding out, ‘Hey, make sure there’s a camera that follows me back after the thing, we’re probably going to want like a backstage promo. Just a camera in a backstage hallway.’
“Cody’s like ‘cool.’
“Press record. Two minutes later. One take. Said what I wanted to say. Done and done. No writers needed.
“That’s how it’s supposed to be. Just point the camera at me and press record. I know what I’m doing.
“Ninety seconds later, we have another promo. Done and Done.
“Within 10 minutes, I accomplished more than what I had in six months of WWE.”
