Jon Moxley Talks Working AEW Dates During The Pandemic

Last updated

Former AEW Champion Jon Moxley recently spoke to F4WOnline’s Garrett Gonzalez. The former WWE Superstar discussed a number of topics during the interview, including how he has worked during the COVID-19 pandemic with no fans in attendance.

‘I don’t wanna work in an empty building, I don’t wanna work in front of fake fans” Jon Moxley began. “If we have to do it, I mean, we and other companies too. Everybody, from IMPACT, Ring of Honor, New Japan, even the ThunderDome and all that.”

“Everybody figured out a way to make it work in wrestling and in other sports too” Mox continued. “Like hockey and all them, you know? UFC. I mean everybody figured out a way to do it but like, honestly, I didn’t learn sh*t.”

“I wanna go back to full crowds” Jon Moxley added. “So I don’t wanna tape multiple shows in a day, I don’t wanna be out there changing outfits as if it’s a different day. I am not, I don’t like that, I like showbiz; Live TV, I want the adrenaline, I wanna go out there live and do it once.”

“There are times we were taping Dynamite or Dark or Elevation where like I might have screwed up a move, trying to do some lucha move or some sh*t with some of these f***ing kids, and I’m like, ’˜I screw it up’ and I just go, ’˜Let’s do it again’ and then I get it right the second time and it’s cool because you can do that when it’s taped.”

“But I’m like, ’˜If it wasn’t taped, would I have screwed it up the first time?’ Nah, I bet I wouldn’t have because I would have been concentrating harder, I would’ve been more ’” because it’s live” Moxley revealed. “I wanna do it live, I want real people.”
