Former WWE star Dean Ambrose, known as Jon Moxley in AEW, explains why he hates WWE promos

Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns took the WWE Universe on a memorable ride when they debuted in 2011 as The Shield. What followed were some of the best storylines in contemporary wrestling including badass promos, action-packed tag team matches and one huge betrayal which though broke the faction, led to even greater storylines.

Then, the three hunks parted their ways with Reigns becoming The Face of the company, Rollins running as a solo heel and Dean Ambrose switching back to his Jon Moxley persona, entering the All Elite Wrestling (AEW) promotion instead. Read on to know one of the reasons which led the Lunatic Fringe distant himself from his Shield brothers even more.

AEW Superstar Jon Moxley Explains Why He Hates The Way WWE Pulls Off Promos 

Jon Moxley left WWE in 2019 and made it clear that he despised the way the creative process worked over there. “That’s why WWE promos f—ing suck because they jam 5,000 f—ing words in there that aren’t necessary. ‘I’m gonna beat your a— on Saturday night because I don’t like you.’ Boom, done.” Moxley said on a recent episode of Oral Sessions, as guest host.

To someone who has seen him as both Dean Ambrose and Jon Moxley, it is noticeable a Moxley promo on AEW Dynamite is significantly different from a post-Shield Dean Ambrose promo on WWE. He continued, “And sometimes in a match, it’s like okay, we planned out all these f—ing spots but really, what is the story?” The former WWE Champion questioned the storytelling way of WWE and labels it all as redundant.

Previously in an interview with Chris Jericho, Moxley had also mentioned that if he has something to prove, he wants to prove that the creative process is horrid. He opined that the process was killing the company and held Vince McMahon responsible. He also said that it wasn’t about competing with other pro-wrestling promotions, but just putting out their best. This, he believes, WWE was not doing considering the amazing talent the company has. Vince’s unwillingness to change was the problem, according to him.
