Jon Moxley reveals CRAZY side effects of his bloody matches

Last updated

Jon Moxley has revealed some side effect of his unique pro wrestling style.

One of the things that frustrated the former AEW champion during his career in WWE was the lack of creative control. While Mox was built as a hardcore fighter, seldomly was he ever allowed to deliver what was promised to fans in terms of violence and consequences in his matches.

This is one of the main reasons that prompted him to leave the promotion and join Tony Khan’s company. Over his time in AEW, Jon has made a reputation for having the most brutal and bloody matches on the card whether it be their biggest PPV of the year or just a random Rampage taping.

Jon Moxley Doesn’t Care

This wrestling style however does not come without consequences of its own. During his recent interview with Bleacher Report, Jon Moxley revealed that he sometimes starts bleeding randomly from the wounds he acquires during matches:

“I can’t tell you how many times in the last year or two, I’ll be at jiu-jitsu on the mat training and I just start bleeding all over the mat,” Moxley said. “Or I’ll wake up and my head is sticking to my pillow. When you keep the kind of schedule that I keep, s–t is just going to open up sometimes. But it doesn’t really bother me.

Though despite these issues and the nagging pain, Moxley is not looking to tone down his style. He knows that any match could be his last and so he is not very bothered by future prospects of his actions:

“Every match could be my last, so I am going to go 100% every single time. If I headbutt a guy and split his head open, it is what it is. It doesn’t bother me that much.”
