AEW star, Jon Moxley, spoke with The Store Horsemen recently. He discussed with them the topics of WWE hiring Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff; as well as, how AEW looks at taking on WWE.
Below are a few exerts from the interview. You can find the full interview at Wrestlinginc.com
On WWE hiring Heyman and Bischoff:
“They definitely made some kind of move,” Moxley said. “Paul Heyman is really smart it sounds like that is a great idea. I just hope Vince lets them do their ideas. It’s not just ‘I made him head of creative, but I’m telling him what to do type of thing.’
“Eric Bischoff was behind the NWO, he also presided over some crappy WCW shows. He is probably pretty motivated to make you forget that part of the resume. The more wrestling that is good, the more fans that there are and the better it is for everybody.”
On AEW not taking on WWE directly:
“This is not the Monday Night Wars,” Moxley mused. “Now, we are over here doing this, they are always going to be there, it would be a fool’s errand to try and take them down, it wouldn’t be good for the wrestling business to try and take them down. We are providing a good alternative, showing that there is a world outside of that.”
