Jon Moxley opens up whether he could make a comeback to WWE
Jon Moxley has had a great run in WWE as Dean Ambrose having multiple titles around his waist. However, during his final years in the company, he was dissatisfied with the creative direction of his gimmick.
Thereby, it was reported in 2019 that he was offered an improved contract by WWE. But he had turned down the contract, eventually leaving the company after his contract expired on April 30 that year.
During the Q&A session he was asked about his potential return to WWE. He quoted the famous saying “never say never” and spoke about the creation of AEW, the promotion he is currently the part of. He further talked about how important the formation of the promotion was.
He said: “You gotta say never say never, because you don’t want to run back what you said years later because you don’t know what’ll happen.”
He continued: “Just the creation of AEW was so vital to the wrestling industry, and that’s part of the reason why I’m so proud to be a part of it. I wouldn’t rule out ever doing business with them again, we had a mutually beneficial relationship for a long time.”
He said: “If they called I would listen, but I highly doubt we would ever be on the same page. I’d be open to an idea. I don’t not like money. I got a kid on the way and gotta put it through college so ya know. I would take a phone call, but I highly doubt anything would materialize.”
Moxley made his unannounced debut for AEW at the promotion’s inaugural event, Double or Nothing. It was later announced that he had inked a multi-year contract.
At Winter Is Coming recently, Jon Moxley lost the AEW World Championship to Kenny Omega,and it marked the end of his record-setting reign at 277 days, and it was also his first singles loss in AEW.
Moxley is set to team up with PAC and Rey Fenix in a six-man tag match against AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and Impact World Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers at Beach Break on February 3.
