AEW President Tony Khan Reveals Jon Moxley Is Getting Health Insurance, Thanks To WWE

AEW wrestler Jon Moxley is currently receiving health benefits, but only thanks to his connection with former employer, the WWE. 

Moxley, 33, joined the new promotion at Double or Nothing after years with WWE where he competed as Dean Ambrose, becoming a Grand-Slam winner in the Sports Entertainment juggernaut. 

Speaking at AEW Dynamite's post-media scrum, Khan revealed that Moxley does receive healthcare, but it comes from the WWE's program of offering healthcare to the spouses of full-time employees. 

He said: "Jon Moxley actually does get healthcare but he gets it through his wife [Renee Young] who is a full-time employee elsewhere."

Interestingly, Khan did not refer to WWE by name. 

Khan would go on to say that many stars seen on the show's premiere episode on TNT already have health benefits with the company. 

"Of the people you saw tonight, a large percentage of them are insured with AEW because they work full-time for AEW," he said.

"This is my fifth show I've done in 2019 and most people haven't been on all five shows."

The AEW president said that many of AEW's office roles such as in graphics, creative or production have been carved out for wrestlers such as Kenny Omega, who works as part of the office staff. 

Khan would go on to say that some stars don't receive such benefits, saying: 

"But there are some people here who have come in and only done a couple of spots this year that are not classified as full-time employees…it's a complicated answer."

AEW Dynamite had its premiere episode this past Wednesday on TNT and garnered more viewers than WWE NXT on the USA Network. 

The show saw Riho be crowned the first AEW Women's Champion, Cody Rhodes defeat Sammy Guevara in the show's opener and the AEW debut of Jake Hager, aka former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger.
